Christmas Gifts for Parents - Ideas for Great Presents for Dad and Mom

Are you seeking inspired ideas for Christmas gifts for parents?

Parents, whatever their age, are often difficult to buy gifts for, especially at Christmas, but you want to find something special for them - something they will treasure.

They probably already have dozens of photos of you and your family, but why not have a special studio portrait taken for them, or have a favorite photo copied onto canvas to look like a portrait done in oils? Or have a family portrait copied onto a ceramic platter. If you don't want to give them yet another photo, why not give them a digital photo frame that you can pre-load old and new photos?

Buying Christmas gifts for parents shouldn't be a chore, although it often is because you just can't think of anything that they would really like. Find out if there is an activity they've always wanted to try - you may already know that a hot air balloon ride is high on their list! That's an activity that would be fun to do with friends or family. Don't forget to bring a picnic basket and a bottle or two of their favorite wine.

A gift basket is always popular - it's a little like opening a Christmas stocking - you keep finding more and more wonderful items. There are many options to choose from when giving a gift basket, depending on your budget and your parents' tastes - you could give them food and wine or a gift basket relating to their hobbies. You could make one for each parent and assemble them yourself; this will be much cheaper and you will know that you're getting the gift items you really want without any 'fillers' that your parents won't use.

If your parents love to go out to eat but are on a fixed income, then give them a gift card to their favorite restaurant or gift card for movie or theater tickets. A set of DVD's of their favorite TV show or favorite movies would make nice extra Christmas gifts for parents - as long as you're sure they'd like to watch them again!

If their appliances are out of date and often in need of repair, then a thoughtful Christmas gift for your parents would be for you to replace one of the old appliances with a newer model that might be cheaper to run and easier to use. You don't have to buy them a new range, but maybe a toaster oven or a new iron would be appreciated as Christmas gifts for parents.

If they love gardening, you could buy them some new tools, plants or something fun for their yard, such as a gazing ball, a bird bath or a hummingbird feeder.

Digital readers would make great Christmas gifts for parents whose eyesight isn't as good as it used to be. The font on the readers can be enlarged to make reading easier on the eyes. You should have some books already loaded on to the reader or a subscription to their favorite newspapers so the reader can be used immediately.

If you feel that your parents could use a vacation, then give them a mini-break at a nearby B&B or nice hotel - whatever your budget can afford. Send them on a wine tasting vacation if they enjoy a glass of wine or two - you could organize a weekend getaway, which would make really nice Christmas gifts for parents.

If they are into the latest technology, then you have many ideas to choose from when buying Christmas gifts for parents. A new phone with a hands-free headset, an iPad or a laptop so that they can keep in touch with family members who might be far away would be welcome. Create a Skype account for them. Buy them a new digital camera or camcorder.

Whether you choose a very personal gift, a gift that will enable them to indulge themselves for a little while, or a gift that will make their lives easier, if you really think about what they would like, then you will have the perfect ideas for great Christmas gifts for parents.
