Parents are some of the hardest people to shop for in my opinion. I’ve definitely had some hits over the last few years.. as well as some misses haha. I’m sharing the hits with ya! haha If you’re looking for ideas for the easiest person to shop for, check out the BABIES gift guide! haha
Pickleball Paddles – Such an easy sport to pick up, our whole family loves it. These are awesome paddles.
Mini Blackstone – Braun loves his Blackstone grill! This is a way smaller version that could be used indoor or outdoors.
Legacy Box – LOVE this gift, such a cool concept. You fill the box with all your old VHS and tape home videos and they convert them for you. Saves you so much hassle and memories are preserved!
Tineco Mop/Vacuum – I’ve gotta get my hands on one of these, I’ve watched so many videos on how incredible they are haha. It vacuums and mops at the SAME TIME. Killing 2 birds with 1 stone? Sign me up!
Automatic Salt + Pepper Shakers – These are the BEST. It automatically grinds the salt + pepper. Parents with arthritis or have a hard time using their hands will love them… heck, I LOVE them.
Air Fryer – If your parents don’t have one of these, get ready change their life. haha
Echo Dot – These are an easy addition to a home! We love this in our kids room to set alarms, play music, you Alexa, etc.
Shark WandVac – My favorite handheld vacuum of all time. Has so much suction power.
Fire Stick – I leave one of these in my luggage at all times, it makes a regular TV a smart TV, and when you unplug it, it keeps you logged in to all your accounts which is such a bonus.
Ancestry DNA Test – In my religion, we’re really encouraged to do our genealogy work but I know that’s not the norm! Not only to learn more about where you’re from, but now you can also learn about where your ancestors moved to, what their journey was, and how that reflects in you today! Better yet, your parents and in-laws can do their own test and there’s now even an app that goes along with it. It’s like a treasure map for your bloodwork and now you can know where Uncle Jerry gets his strange looks or if your grandma has any long lost siblings.
Hatch Restore – Love that this uses a light to wake you up more naturally. Has other awesome features too!
Digital Picture Frame – Grandparents are always wanting updated pics of those grandkids, this frame has an app that everyone in the fam can download and send pictures directly to the frame. It’s AWESOME.
Moji – Everyone loves their house to smell good and if we can void it, the danger of candles. One of the main reasons I love them (aside from their amazing smell) is their safety. No flame, no heat, no wax, and non-toxic. Their products are kid-safe, pet-friendly, and environmentally conscientious. Their devices are designed with a focus on safety and their fragrances and essential oils are delivered in pods which make installing or switching scents a breeze! The holiday scents right now are soooo good. Moji is now The Happy Co, but it’s still the same great product!
Kindle – If your in-laws are big readers they will love this. I like it better than reading on a tablet or phone because it feels more book like because there isn’t a glare. I have the Oasis, but the paper white is great too if you want a less expensive option.
Echo Show – Bought this for our kitchen this past year and it’s so convenient. It will remind you of events in your calendar, you can watch shows on it, listen to music, etc!
Tile – This is a saving grace if you’ve got someone who is prone to loosing things. Slap this on your keys and you can find them with an app on your phone and vice versa!
iRobot Vacuum – If you’ve got older parents cleaning can be challenging for them, the only thing they have to do is lift a finger to schedule vacuuming in the app.
Gun Safe – If you’ve got one, it’s important to keep it safe. This is one of the safes we have, it screws in to the back of your nightstand, has a code, and fingerprint open option.
Stanley – If your parents aren’t in the loop on these bad boys then you’ve def done something wrong… JK! But seriously if they don’t have one it’ll be a great gift. TARA20 works for 20% off all drinkware except the Quenchers.
Air Purifier – I got this at the beginning of the year and LOVE it. I put it by the cat’s litter box and it helps so much.
Slippers – Doesn’t everyone love a nice pair of slippers? These are Braun’s fave because they have a hard sole.
Weather Station – A simple way to check the weather, updated constantly too. It also will sensor the indoor temperature too!
