It is easy to buy gifts for me, but when it comes to my parents, I hardly know what to buy. I’d spend too many hours thinking about what gifts to buy for my parents.Then I realized that it isn’t just me who is struggling with it. I think almost Everyone else around us is going through the same thing. Parents know what to buy for kids, but the children need help understanding what to buy for their parents.
I’ve decided that what I have learned about buying gifts for parents would be great for them.
So, here is the list of a few Presents that you can buy for your parents, anytime, anyday.
A typical gift you can buy for your parents is printed coffee or tea mugs with “Best Mom” and “Best Dad.” It is a great idea when you are on a tight budget. My dad surprisingly likes to show these mugs at his office, saying, Oh, see. My daughter brought this for me with her pocket money. I used to get them when I was young, and he loved to show them to everyone.
A family photograph with a frame is a great option. It is one of the classic gifts that can be brought. Parents love to remember those cherished moments with their family. So, create a photo album with their timeline using their photographs.
Parents need self-care quite a lot. They tend to push it away and say it isn’t that important. But the reality is they spend half of their lives under stress because of it. They are always in complete distress about children and their future, finances, their own parents, social aspects, and sometimes the tensions with co-workers. A bit of self-care is an excellent suggestion for them.
There are many self-care kits available on Etsy, Amazon, or Zappy Box.
My parents love their coffee. And if there’s anyone at home, they will bring out the fanciest cups available to serve coffee. And I’ve found it to be a fantastic idea for a gift. There are lovely hand-painted tea or coffee sets.
The most exciting gift you can get when you have a stable income is a small holiday trip to a place that fits them and your personality well. Some parents are religious. Plan a trip to a spiritual place that will make them happy. Some just want a relaxing time away from stressful work. Plan for a holiday to some hill station. The ones in your budget would be Yecaud in Tamil Nadu, Wayanad in Kerala, Chikkamagalurr in Karnataka, Araku Valley in Andhra Pradesh, Kasol in Himachal Pradesh, or Gangtok in Sikkim.
Our parents have their insurance policies. Most of the parents will have health insurance or vehicle insurance commonly. Insurance is vital for everyone. One should definitely have insurance. So, if your parents do not have any insurance, first buy health insurance for them. If they already have life and health insurance, buy them a retirement insurance policy. It will protect their retirement life.
One wealth that can be used at any time and be cashed away when needed is gold. If it is in your budget, some gold jewelry, but even if you are short on budget, 1 gram of gold is still a great choice. 1 gram of gold might cost around Rs 5000. This one gram of significantly less gold might not seem helpful, but remember that parents always look for future use. So, when you buy 1 gram of gold on various occasions like Diwali, Birthdays, Anniversaries, and such, it will pile up, which can be changed into a ring or some solid jewelry.
Amazon gift cards are just unique. My mom buys so many things from Amazon that online shopping is widespread. So, a Gift Card is a beautiful idea to gift to your parents. You may not know what they want, but the gift card will give them what they want.
I am still very obsessed with the House of Dragons. The plot is just overly consuming, and the actors are brilliant in it. Not to mention, I just love their struggle for the throne. It reminds me of Daenerys and her journey to power.
