30 Gift Ideas for Parents + In-Laws


This is probably my most requested gift guide aside from “your guy” because, let’s be real, parents have ALL THE THINGS. So I racked my brain to come up with a mix of unique + thoughtful gifts plus some cool things that dads will totally eat up.

What to get your parents + In-Laws for Christmas

What to get your parents + In-Laws for Christmas


Artifact Uprising Photobooks: gorge photobooks are the new coffee table books! Andy and I are actually doing this for ourselves this year and want to start a tradition of doing one every year to recap the year in images. They have incredible wedding albums, too. I already ordered one for my grandparents and am working on one for Andy + my parents! If you’re looking for frames + prints they also have so many options.

Bouqs Subscription: this is a monthly flower subscription that my mom LOVES. I got it for her for Mother’s Day a few years ago and it’s seriously the gift that keeps on giving. She texts me every month when they arrive to say how it’s the best surprise!

Wine subscription: if your parents are anything like mine, they love their wine. If they’re already wine club members why not take over their subscription for 2019? It’s something they’ll remember with each delivery and really appreciate.





In terms of “tech things” my two suggestion are Kindles + Airpods because they are LIFE CHANGING for almost anyone. I feel like most parents wouldn’t treat themselves to them, so they’re thoughtful AND functional gifts.

If you can swing it I also love putting together experience packages for my parents: date nights (restaurant gift cards + a bottle of wine), Hollywood Bowl tix, sporting event tickets, etc. It always gives them something to look forward to and creates long lasting memories.

Hope this helps pull you out of the parent gifting stupor! xx - Ashley
