Parents are quite hard to buy for. Forget the stereotypical aftershave set for Dad and the candles and slipper set for Mam. Be Creative! Add something to the home they will value. Purchase a voucher/tickets for a night out/hotel stay. Buy a luxury item you know they would never purchase for themselves. Parents are always hinting (well at least mine are...) about something 'they wish...' or 'if only I had...' around the house- so be attentive. My parents are getting tickets to a show in NYC (I am thinking the Book of Mormon...) and dinner in a lobster restaurant they have been excited to try having seen it on tv (don't worry- they are not tech savvy so would never read my blog lol!) My top ten are a mixture of low cost goodies or luxury splurges- so whatever your budget...and if you really have no idea, fire away with one of these. Thank me later!
