What to Get Your Parents for Christmas This Year!

So, they’re basically impossible to shop for. If they need it, they buy it for themselves. They have everything. What are you going to buy your parents for Christmas? Old World Christmas and our Christmas ornaments are here to help. We’ve guided husbands and wives on what to get each other, parents or relatives on what to get teens, and we like to think we can help the dutiful son or daughter surprise their parents with the perfect Christmas gift this year. And what a year it’s been. To simplify the need to hit a bunch of shops, we’ve come up with some combined Christmas gifts that encourage togetherness, complementing gifts and warmth. 

We could all use a bit more gratitude in our lives, and taking note of what we’re grateful for has shown to make changes in our demeanor. And, obviously you’d be at the top of their gratitude list! They could start their new habit together with this 5-minute gratitude journal. Get them each their own, and they can compare notes. It might take dad a bit to come around, but if it comes from his favorite kid then he might be willing to give it a try. A cool ornament could be used as a topper to remind them about gratitude when they look at the tree. 

Reflective Ornament

A bar of soap might be the extent of your father’s beauty routine, and mom might be stuck in a rut with hers. Why not pick a new skin-care brand for them to try together? Many brands have both dedicated lines for men and women. Kiehl’s has holiday gift sets for both men and women and everyone. Two cute ornaments to top this gift would be the lipstick and mustache.

Lipstick and Mustache Ornament

Your parents might have embraced 2020 as the year to get caught up on shows since we’ve been holed up at home a lot more. To enhance their shared time and shared space they might need a Big Blanket for two. It can be hard to get the full snuggled and cozy effect with a regular-sized blanket. But a blanket-build-for-two gives each person their own space with enough cozy to go around. It comes in a variety of colors and finishes. To go with their cozy state of mind, this blanket ornament will inspire them.

If it’s cozy they want, then go all in with matching slippers. Dorky? Maybe, but they’ll get over it when they’ve slipped ice-cold toes into these lovely slippers for dad and mom. For parents with a bit more pizzaz than traditional (boring?) taste, a pair of goofy animal slippers might suit them way better. There’s an slipper ornament to match!

Pink Fuzzy Slippers Ornament

Maybe your parents are more at home in the outdoors oblivious to Netflix or maybe they’re all about Netflix, but could do with some fresh air. No problem. Old World Christmas loves Solo Stove. They come in three sizes, and are easily portable and smoke free, so they provide a warm and convenient campfire any time, any place. Throw in some gear to make s’mores and they’re all set. We think the campfire and s’more ornament make the perfect pairing. 

Campfire and Smore Ornament

Hopefully something on this list of what to buy your parents for Christmas sparked some ideas. They might be tricky to shop for, but they’re definitely worth it. Forgo the usual and predictable gifts and get your parents a special Christmas gift this holiday season.
