What to Get Your Boyfriend's Parents for Christmas? 

Not that long ago I wrote about what to do when you need to get your boyfriend's mother a gift

As if that wasn't stressful enough. 

Holiday shopping is always stressful, and if you feel compelled to get your boyfriend's parents something for Christmas, there's good news and bad news. 

The good news is that you are clearly in a pretty serious – and hopefully happy – relationship! 

The bad news is you could totally screw this up with your significant other's parents! 

 

 

Everyone is different, and ultimately you should get the gift you feel most comfortable giving. 

However, if you're panicking about whether your gift choices will be embarrassing, we've got some pretty simple tips. 

First, playing it abundantly safe is the best (and only) option when you don't have a better idea. You don't want to risk missing the mark or being too personal with a detailed gift. 

If you are feeling more adventurous, however, tech gifts tend to go over well. They can introduce your boyfriend's parents to products they might not otherwise know about, and the gift-giving act creates a fun conversation opportunity for you to explain what the heck you actually got them! 

Whether you want to be adventurous this holiday season or just want to get to New Year's without becoming single, keep reading for 7 thoughts on what to get your boyfriend's parents for Christmas!

Best Christmas Gifts for Boyfriend's Parents

 

His & Hers Cozy Slippers

I was about to write “Nothing says the holidays like lounging around the house”… until I realized that nothing says this entire year like lounging around the house. 

Regardless, these super comfortable wool and faux-fur house slippers from Koolaburra are a safe and seasonal Christmas gift.

There's no chance this gift could offend or seem too forward.

And trust us, once his parents try these super plush slippers on for size, they'll fall in love (with the shoes, not you. baby steps)

Just make sure you get the correct shoe sizes from your partner before ordering!

His & Hers Cozy Robes

It's possible your boyfriend's parents haven't yet discovered the bliss of lounging around the house in a plush robe. 

Made almost entirely from lightweight cotton, the UGG house robe is perfect for when parents have those days when their daily schedule consists of relaxing on the couch, playing with the dog, and generally living the sweet life! 

The feminine robe is pictured, but don't forget Dad. UGG has a robe for him, too! Now your boyfriend's parents can be matchy matchy!

Luxurious Throw Blanket

If getting robes for your boyfriend's parents is right on the edge of what makes you comfortable, check out the throw blanket version of the UGG house robe. 

This is the ultimate “luxurious but safe and useful” gift. And remember, that's not a bad thing!

Sure, most parents don't consider one more throw blanket around the house any kind of priority. With that said, a throw blanket is the quintessential “aren't you sweet for thinking of us!” harmless gift.

Plus, when people hate other gifts, they normally throw them right in the trash. When people hate throw blankets, they end up where they normally would anyway – lying around on some chair or couch to be used!

Packing Cubes

Let's face it. Traveling only gets harder as you get older. 

Keeping energy levels high while physically managing a long vacation schedule can be hard enough, so surprise your boyfriend's parents with these nifty packing cubes from Eagle Creek

Containing 3 compartments in folder, half-cube, and full-cube sizes, the Eagle Creek set is a lifesaver for effectively organizing your travel documents, electronics, and other essential items. 

Packing cubes changed my life when I discovered them a few years ago.

If your boyfriend's parents travel often, don't miss the chance to give them this unique and thoughtful gift!

Travel Mugs, Growlers, & French Presses

I'm not gonna sugarcoat where getting your boyfriend's parents a travel mug or French press falls on the gift-giving spectrum between “safe” and “completely one-of-a-kind”. 

Spoiler alert, it's safe. Like almost mailing-it-in kind of safe. 

Getting your boyfriend's parents something like a travel mug or growler should probably be a last resort if better ideas remain elusive, but at least the Stanley brand name and craftsmanship elevate the gift! 

There's an outdoor cooler or wide mouth flask if you want a slight twist of a gift!

Portable Charging Cable Keychain

If the packing cubes we mentioned earlier are indispensable to organizing life while traveling, a portable device charger is even more indispensable to organizing life, period.

Chronic device dependency forces most people into overusing phones and tablets throughout the day – we can admit that much, right?

Throw frustratingly weak batteries into the mix, and the inevitable outcome once every few weeks is a dead phone…at the worst possible moment. 

Make sure your boyfriend's parents can always keep in touch with this Native Union keychain cable which features a compact size and compatibility with Apple Lightning and both USB-A and USB-C!

Blue Light Glasses

Speaking of chronic device dependency, try really impressing your boyfriend's parents this Christmas by getting them blue light glasses!

If you aren't yet familiar with the latest fashion + wellness wave, our tech devices produce blue light. What's that, you ask? 

Blue light is a high-frequency light that can cause long-term damage and disrupt short-term sleep patterns by penetrating the retina and suppressing the body's melatonin production.

Although, on second thought, maybe leave out all the scary stuff with your boyfriend's parents.

Just tell them that blue light glasses not only mitigate the stress that comes from staring at devices, but they're also very fashionable!

DIY Food & Drink Kits

Do his parents love to cook and experiment in the kitchen? Or maybe they're huge foodies that love trying new restaurants?

If your boyfriend's parents love to eat, get them these fun DIY kits so they can attempt to make their favorite foods at home (we are still in a pandemic after all!)

There are fun DIY kits for everything from bubble tea to gourmet dipping oils, mochi ice cream kit to make your own hot sauce kits

There's even a personalized whiskey barrel set and Chinese soup dumpling kit! Whichever you chose, it's something his entire family can bond over and do together. Maybe they'll include you in the fun!
