When it comes to Christmas gifts for parents no ordinary gift will do. You’ll want to gift them with something unique and thoughtful, just like them! But what do you get your mom and dad when they’ve given you so many special Christmas gifts and wonderful holiday memories over the years? I’ve got five of the best Christmas gifts for parents, guaranteed to be cherished and fill their hearts with holiday cheer!
Minted.com has tons of wonderful calendars that come in a variety of styles to choose from. I found this little gem in their whimsical styles: the Whisper Grand calendar; perfect Christmas gifts for parents who have more photos of their kids than they know what to do with. Customize the calendar with your choice of photo layouts, color options and you can even personalize it by adding all the kids’ birthdays for the year!
365 Days of Cuteness
Christmas gifts for parents have never been cuter with this vintage inspired calendar, the Washi Chalkboard Notes Grand calendar. One of Minted’s design challenge winners and there’s no question why. It’s sleek and stylish with charming details like “taped” photos and even a little section for notes. With a calendar so adorable your only tough decision will be which size to get.
Personalized to Perfection
The Book Shop Grand calendar is so irresistible it will have you ordering two, one for your parents, and one for yourself. Available in a standard 8” x 11½” size, or get the larger grand measuring 11 ½” x 14”, either one makes great Christmas gifts for parents. Make this gift extra special by getting some professional pictures taken, and then choose twelve of your favorite pictures from the shoot to make the ultimate photo calendar!
“A” is for Art
In addition to their wonderful calendars, Minted.com also has some of the best Christmas gifts for parents. In their wide collection of photo art, I have fallen in love with their “Within Letters of You” art print. Choose a color, a letter, a photo, and write a small message and whala! You’ve got letter photo art. Pick the first letter of the family’s name and add a picture of your parents, or choose the letter “B” and add a photo of little baby Brandon for his oh so delighted grandparents.
Family Tree Fun
Minted.com’s collection of family tree gifts is too sweet to pass up. They make such unique and personal Christmas gifts for parents that you know they’ll be a hit. My personal favorite is the Folk Family Tree print where you add each family member’s name to a branch of the tree, turning your clan into an artistic expression for your parents to proudly hang on their wall.
Who knew finding unique and personal Christmas gifts for parents could be such a cinch? Whether you choose to personalize a photo calendar, or create a family heirloom with another photo gift, one thing is for sure; your mom and dad are going to love it!
