After my parents saw my last post, they told me I should make a list of what parents want for Christmas. And since I’m sure a lot of people haven’t gotten their parents anything yet (myself included), I thought it wasn’t a bad idea. So here it is: a list of what your parents want for Christmas.
What your dad wants for Christmas…
- A subscription to the Dollar Shave Club. Since all men shave, this would be a great gift. You can order a monthly subscription ranging from $1 to $22 a month. The blades are sent every month.
- iGrill Mini Meat Thermometer. If your dad likes to grill, this is the
perfect gift. It monitors the meat’s temperature to tell you when your food is ready, by alerting your phone. (From $39, idevicesinc.com)
- Viper SmartStart Remote Start. This product provides a way for you to turn on your car and warm it up, or cool it down, with your phone. It also allows you to lock or unlock your car, arm or disarm your car’s security system, open your trunk, and even find where it is in a parking lot—all with your iPhone. (Price varies, check Viper.com)
- Sonos HiFi Wireless Speakers. These are WiFi connected speakers that work seamlessly around your house. You can control the music with your phone, computer, tablet, or other smart device. There are so many things you can do with this sound system, such as connecting your already in-place home speakers to the program. (Speakers start at $199 each, Connect—which allows you to connect your wired speakers—starts at $349)
- Sports/Movie Tickets. Go take your dad to see his favorite sports team play, tickets usually start under $20 for nose-bleeder seats. Or if he’s not so big on sports, take him to a movie. You know, like Star Wars…
- Tile. If your dad is always losing his keys this would be a perfect gift
for him. It attaches to a keyring and shows where your keys are on your phone. But wait! There’s more! If your dad loses his phone, he can press the tile and his phone will make a loud sound. (TheTileApp.com, $25)
What your mom wants for Christmas…
- A snood. My mom told me to buy her something special, something “she wouldn’t normally buy herself,” and then suggested a furry snood. Which is, apparently, like a scarf. They can also be knit and come in all kinds of colors and styles. (Hollister Co, $12.49)
- Jewelry. Along with the snood, you can buy your mom a matching bracelet, necklace, and/or earrings. Be sure to go sparkly on this. This was also a suggestion from my own mother, so take her word for it. (Prices vary)
- Swarovski Figurines. These are small, crystal figurines. Although
these are expensive, there are similar products for less. They have a lot of different styles and themes available. (From $35, Swarovski.com)
- Professional pictures. Have a professional photographer or a talented friend take pictures of you and your siblings, or just you. Have it printed and buy a frame. This is a great present because it’s of what your mom loves most: you!
- Tickets to a play or movie. Check online for plays around your area or ask her about it, subtly. Or maybe there’s a movie she’s been talking about that you could take her to see.
- See’s Candies. If all else fails, there’s always See’s Candies or some other kind of candy your mom loves. What mother wouldn’t love some chocolate on Christmas morning?
