Maybe it’s cheating, but I am going to call it market research. I asked my parents what they wanted to see in this gift guide. They are grandparents, so it seemed like it was a no brainer. While my Mom continued to rattle off ideas (with an emphasis on this necklace we bought her for her birthday that she is in love with), my Dad likes to send a curated list that usually includes socks and books. But in the end they always say that “we don’t need to buy them anything” because spending time together is the most important.
Photo Gifts// Let’s be honest, we don’t print out pictures like use to. I have 15,000 photos of my kids on my phone so it’s hard to decide what to print. But my parents love printed photos and Shutterfly has lots of fun options from canvas, framed and even picture puzzles!
Game Night// As previously said, spending time is the most important, so you might as well bring a long a little family fun in the form of a game!
Gifts for Him//
Vuori Pullover// Yes, Vuori is popular with the teens and the baby boomers – one thing they can both agree on!
Personalized Baseball Book// While I wait for my curated list of books my Dad wants to read I am going to sneak in this awesome newspaper collage of all the Phillies highlights.
Rolling Duffel// I love that this bag as the rolling option and the style is classic, just like grandpa!
Sea Salt Soap// I know understand the fuss over this soap – it smells delightful but is packed with minerals to exfoliate the skin.
Gifts For Her//
Love Carved Heart Necklace // The aforementioned necklace my sisters and I bought for our mom for her birthday. She told me no less than 7 times to include it in our gift guide because she loves it so much. It’s made by Jane Win who is local to our area, but is making ripples all over with her gorgeous jewelry.
C E Ferulic// I am all for aging gracefully and this incredible serum will give her that youthful glow.
Cashmere Duster// Its true cashmere is always a good gift idea. I love this as a light layer for dinners or lounging in the morning.
Ina Garten Cook Book// While my mom’s cooking is THE BEST, she does love a cook book for extra inspiration.
Spyder Sneakers// My mom is always on the move and always in search of comfortable sneakers. These sneakers come with all the bells and whistles, but look super cool.
