Christmas Gifts for Parents Who Have Everything


1. Instant Pot

The Instant Pot has been all the rage for the last couple years and it’s showing no signs of slowing down!

This best selling multi cooker is just what every parent needs – whether you want a gift for your retired parents who hate to cook now that the kids have moved out, or you need a gift for new parents struggling to juggle career, kids and everything else.

It can steam, slow cook, saute, make yogurt, expertly prepare rice – you name it. You can even stack sides and the main course inside the Instant Pot to cook an entire meal in one contraption, meaning just 1 thing to wash!

Everyone who has one raves about them, so if your parents are still doing without, buy them the InstaPot this holiday season!

2. Nespresso

The Nespresso creates barista grade coffee at the touch of button. It’s the perfect gift idea for parents who love to drink coffee and will be used by both mom and dad. Best of all?

The Nespresso is chic and flawlessly designed so it looks beautiful on every kitchen counter. It can make espresso and regular coffee as well as fancier lattes, capuccino and iced drinks. We haven’t stopped using our Nespresso since we got it!

It’s also uncomplicated to use – just pop in the capsule, touch 1 button and voila! Nespresso machines take just 15 seconds to heat up so even the crankiest parents don’t have to wait long for their favorite espresso drink to be ready.

3. Family Mug Shots

This one’s a bit of a funny gift idea for your parents. These family ‘mug shots’ are personalized with your family name and artwork for each member of the family!

You can personalize skin tone, hair, clothing color and add your parents’ names to one side, while the other side of the mugs can be personalized with the year and last name.

They’re made of ceramic and are such a cute and practical gift that we bet no one else will be gifting their parents! Wrap them as is, or fill them up with hot cocoa mix for a fun DIY gift idea.

Best of all, these personalized gifts are dishwasher and microwave safe!

4. Custom House Print

Are your parents older and recently retired? These custom art pieces could be a great gift idea for them if they’ve just downsized to a smaller home. Or, if they’re new parents who have just moved to a bigger house for their growing family, why not celebrate their new home?

You can pick from 17 different frames, customize the print color, add borders and even text. Plus the process is easy – just upload a photo of the house and the resident artist takes care of everything else! They’ll sketch a drawing for you, you get to approve the proofs until the print is perfect, and they customize away!

This Christmas gift idea is truly one of a kind and we bet your parents will not only appreciate the gesture and thought, but hang it up because they love the final print!

5. Wool Coat

Every mom needs a really beautiful wool coat for the winter season. If she doesn’t have one yet, get her one!

We recently saw a stunning wool coat with fur collar on the Duchess of Cambridge and immediately loved the look.

The Cece coat from Dawn Levy is a classic option. It has a fun detachable Mongolian fur collar, wearable silhouette and reversible design. We especially love the cool grey and bright blue color – it’s reversible!

Wearable for everyday errands, work and holiday parties – it makes a statement that your mom will love!

6. Smartwatch

Now here’s a gift for dad.

This gorgeous smartwatch not only tells the time but keeps your parents up to date with the latest! With notifications for text, email, calendar events and social media updates, it’s perfect for the busy parent on the go.

It also has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and the Explorist is compatible with both iPhone and Android phones, making it practical for every parent.

Want to play music? It can do that! Want to make payments almost anywhere? It’s got Google Pay so even if your parents forget their wallet, they’re ok! And best of all, the Fossil smartwatch is swim proof, has heart rate tracking and activity tracking – perfect for parents who enjoy working out.

7. Matching Family Pajamas

We always love a good pair of holiday pajamas.

Why not get the entire family in on some color coordinated fun with a set of matching family pajamas? You can buy everything from red & white striped jammies to unisex holiday plaids, or even some Christmas cartoon characters if you wish!

Best of all, if you’re shopping last minute, Amazon has tons of cute family pajama sets that arrive with 1 to 2 day free shipping for Prime members. Grab a pair for everyone and snap a cute family photo on Christmas Eve with the tree!

8. Luxury Bedding

Good quality, soft sheets make all the difference for a good night’s sleep. This Christmas, get your parents a set of luxurious bedding!

With over 46,000 glowing reviews, this set of sheets will surpass your expectations. While they’re not made from Egyptian cotton (who can really trust thread counts these days), the microfiber is incredibly soft, non itchy and comes in practically every color.

We bought a set on a whim and were pleasantly surprised to find that they have a much higher quality than their price would suggest. They also get softer with each wash! Each set comes with a fitted sheet, flat sheet and 2 pillowcases.

9. Digital Photo Frame

One gift idea older parents always love? Photos.

Get them this fun digital photo frame to display all their favorite snapshots and holiday moments. It makes the perfect affordable yet sentimental gift that everyone from young parents to retired parents with grandchildren will love.

Best of all – it’s EASY to set up. You just plug in your USB stick or SD/SDHC card of your favorite clips, plug it into the digital frame and voila! Watch all your photos and videos play in front of you. This particular frame has motion sensor so it automatically turns on when you enter the room and turns off when you leave! Or, you can use the remote control that comes with it.

Finally, it’s a multi functional gift! The digital frame has a clock and calendar function as well as stereo speakers to play sound.

10. Home Smart Device

Smart homes are all the rage and this nifty SmartThings hub helps connect all your different smart devices to make them work together intelligently!

You can sync up lights, speakers, locks, thermostats, sensors – you name it! Upgrade your parents’ home to the modern century by having the SmartThings hub tell it what to do when your parents are asleep, awake, away and back home.

11. Lenovo Yogapad

Update your parents’ tech with a chic, multimode laptop / tablet. The Yoga 730 weighs a featherlight 2.47 pounds but packs power and speed in its 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

Whether your parents still share 1 email address or are saavy social media mavens, every parent will love the blazing fast connectivity, high definition resolution and immersive sound that this laptop offers.

Fun additional features include Cortana, a voice activated digital assistant and Windows Hello, a super secure security system to protect payments and passwords.
