They’ve already given you just about everything under the sun. Now here are some really great gifts for your parents who already have everything and, well, may be a bit impossible too.
Parents, in our opinion, are really some of the most difficult people to shop for. They already have everything already and, well, they claim they don’t need anything. So, if you don’t get them anything does that technically count as a gift? If only! There are endless ideas on what to get your folks, but so many come up with ideas that are more suited for those who are in their early 100s. Fun fact: Most parents actually know how to use technology! Go figure.
This season, we’ve chosen some of the most popular items that are perfect for younger parents, older parents and, well, everyone in between. We’ve highlight some in the world of technology, nostalgia, cooking, and more. Shop our picks for the best gifts for your loving (and a little crazy) parents in 2019.
The Best Gift of 2019
The Long Distance ‘Thinking of You’ Touch Lamp – Buy It Here
This is officially our favorite gift idea this year for parents who may be a state or two away. This set of magical touch-lamps (with WiFi enabled) allows you and your parents to know they’re thinking of you each time someone gently taps their lamp. It’ll light up a wide variety of colors (or you can designate certain colors for certain people) and then you can touch it back so that theirs lights up too let you know you’re thinking of them. So meaningful and, well, it may cut down on the endless phone calls from time to time. Learn more here.
The Delivery Pick
The Prettiest Flower Delivery of the Year – Buy It Here
If you haven’t already heard of Bouqs Flowers, you’re about to. They were recently featured on an episode of Shark Tank and, to be quite honest, they have some of the prettiest flowers we’ve seen in a long time. They even help local farmers here in the United States and other places by providing jobs for them and really helping to give back. You can also easily and somewhat cheaply upgrade some of your flower choices to a double or even a triple bouquet batch. They certainly won’t be disappointed. Learn more here.
The Reminder Pick
The Tile Key, Phone, and Remote Finder – Buy It Here
Ok so not only could some of our older parents use this, but we could use this well. This tiny little ’tile’ can be added to their key ring, their phone, their remote control or basically whatever and if/when those items ‘go missing’ this Tile Finder will alert them to exactly where those items have gone. Magical! We’re using this for our sunglasses and that’s final. Learn more here.
The History Pick
The Ancestry DNA Kit – Buy It Here
It’s time to rethink their DNA. These kits have come such a long way since they were first introduced and we’re obsessed with this new one from Ancestry DNA. Not only can they learn so much more about their history, but they can even make potential family connections to anyone, anywhere if they choose to. Hey, maybe you all will be invited to Christmas dinner this year in Italy. You never know. Learn more here.
The Musical Pick
The Crosley ‘Vintage’ Record Player with a Modern Twist – Buy It Here
Finally they’ll be able to play all their old records that have been stored up in the attic for decades. This super on-trend 3-speed record player not only looks great (it comes in so many different colors), but is easy to set up right on just about any table, is portable, and the best part…it’s bluetooth and wireless so they could listen to their favorite songs that are stored on their phone or iPad right through this record player (yes, it has great speakers too). If they already have this, we’ve failed you. Learn more here.
The Personal Pick
The ‘My Life Story’ Journal for Parents – Buy It Here
They have millions of stories to tell and now they can easily fill them all out in this really thoughtful journal. It’ll be something that helps jog their memory, take a nice mental walk down memory lane and, more importantly, allows them to be able to pass on their history and stories for generations to come. Learn more here.
The Zone Out Pick
The New 4K Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote – Buy It Here
If they love TV and movies, they’re going to love this. It’s the latest from Amazon, is voice activated thanks to Alexa, and will allow them to stream over 500,000 different movies, TV shows, and more. And, yes, they’ll most likely be able to find their favorite old shows and movies too! The 4K makes watching all of this so worth it. Plus, it’s voice activated so they’ll be able to just tell Alexa to put on Gone With the Wind. Super easy. Learn more here.
The Cooking Pick
The Instant Pot with WiFi – Buy It Here
This is a great and easy way for them to make so many of their favorite meals in hardly any time. Everyone online is overly pumped about their Instant Pot and we love how this one is specifically WiFi enabled so they (or you) can basically program it and control it from anywhere. They’ll be able to use it as a pressure cooker, a steamer, a slow cooker, a rice maker, a yogurt maker, and so much more. Learn more here.
