Holiday Gift Ideas For Parents & In-Laws

Gift wraps available from Lakeside

As the years pass by, it gets more and more difficult to find gifts for our parents, and it is equally as difficult to figure out the right Christmas gifts for our in-laws. Thankfully, the passing years also give us a heap of information, as well as our fair share of gift successes and failures to guide us toward making this year's gift better than the year before. Chances are you've tried to find the inspiration for such gifts in the past, but instead of listing off a bunch of potential products, we decided to dig a little deeper to figure out some of the reasons why some gift ideas for parents and in-laws succeed more than others. Here's a handful of ideas to spark that moment of gift-giving clarity and make your parents' or in-laws' Christmas a little more special this year.

Back In The Habit

As always, finding the best gift begins with taking an interest or making an effort to learn about the person you're buying for. Knowing more about your parents or in-laws (everything from the place they live to the place they're hoping to visit, the sports they like to watch on television to the activities they like to get out and try on the weekends) can be the fuel you need to inspire that perfect gift idea. If you want to make their Christmas extra special, find a way to get them back in the habit by reintroducing them to a passion they sacrificed years ago, a hobby they've always wanted to try or just taking an interest in something they like that you've never tried.

New Beginnings

While we might know our parents pretty well, figuring out presents for our in-laws is a different thing entirely, especially if the relationship is relatively new. Your best resource for information is your spouse, and chances are they'll be the one taking the lead on your gift-giving adventure. But it's possible that all the information in the world might not help your brainstorming session this year. If you're truly stumped, "on the fence" or buying for a person who never reveals that much about their interests or hobbies, it's always fun to take a leap and go for something that's broad enough to appeal to almost anyone (think tech and electronics), or go the opposite way and cover a variety of bases at once (like throwing together a gift card bouquet with a bunch of different options from restaurants to entertainment).


What Else Is There?

You might not have thought that getting your mom or dad that perfect gift 10 years ago would come back to haunt you one day. The problem with getting the perfect gift is it's hard to beat it or even come close to it as the years go by. Even if that's not the case, gifts can start to add up, taking options away and limiting our creativity. At least marriages have the traditional gift ideas to help narrow things down as time ticks away. With parents and in-laws, we're on our own. It's also frustrating to shop for parents because it can seem like they have everything. Luckily, there are certain kinds of items that are great across the board when you're struggling to piece things together. Personalized gifts can give a unique feeling to something they might already have and make them feel special with a gift that's been specifically designed just for them.


Looking Back

When in doubt with your parents, it's never a bad idea to go for a personal touch. That doesn't necessarily mean personalized gifts (although personalization can make anything more special). What it means is turning their attention back to the great memories you share with them or the special events or moments in their lives they never want to forget. Sentiment photo frames are a great way to feature and preserve a moment they'll cherish forever, and doing some research into their past is bound to spark creative ideas or unearth an idea to get them back in the habit.

Moving Forward

The sentimental route is almost always guaranteed to please, and many people would say that you can't give those kinds of gifts enough. However, if you're worried about overdoing it, move forward instead of looking back. There's always room to learn and grow and try new things no matter what stage of life we're in. Almost everyone is looking for a new challenge or waiting to be inspired by something unfamiliar and exciting. To paraphrase the late Jimmy Valvano, one of the best gifts you can give to anyone is to believe in them. Believe in your parents, your in-laws, everyone in your family, and don't be afraid to push them toward the next chapter in their life.


The Lakeside Collection isn't just packed with fun toys for kids, stylish apparel, and gifts for your garden. It's overflowing with gift ideas for the Christmas season, from NFL beer mugs for sports fans to cookbooks and cookware for the aspiring chef.
