Gifts for Mom and Dad
Holiday Gifts Parents Will Love
Most grandparents can't get enough of seeing their grandchildren's pictures. But instead of giving them another picture for the holidays, give them a personalized puzzle. This selection of personalized jigsaw puzzles lets them enjoy a fun game while admiring their favorite little one. All you have to do is send in a digital photo, and your child's image is reproduced on a cardboard puzzle that comes stored in a keepsake tin.
Each and every year, we buy our dad some kind of tool or gadget that seems a little boring to us, but makes him as giddy as a small child on Christmas morning. Make your dad just as giddy this holiday season by giving him this Xtend & Climb Telescoping Ladder. The telescoping ladder extends and locks by the foot to accommodate jobs of any size, including window washing, tree trimming, decorating, painting, cleaning... more
Making a cup of coffee will be a breeze for mom and dad with this Keurig B70 Coffee Maker. All they have to do is insert a cup of their favorite coffee blend into the machine, press the Brew button, and the coffee is instantly brewed into their cup. But it doesn't stop there: The machine also brews tea and makes hot chocolate, which will be a hit with the grandkids.
Mom will love to keep this little radio in the kitchen while she cooks. Dad will love to keep it in the garage while he cleans the car. The Logitech Squeezebox Radio connects to your Wi-Fi so that you can play any Internet radio station, and even your favorite music service site, such as Pandora or Slacker. It features a mono speaker system with a separate woofer and tweeter for great sound quality.
Okay, this is more of a gift for dad than for mom, but we have a feeling that mom will be using it too. This Krups B95 Heineken Beer Tender will keep their Heinken DraughtKeg nice and cold thanks to its silent cooling system. The patented carbonator pressure technology automatically pressurizes the keg to maintain the beer's freshness for up to 30 days. The illuminated LED control panel displays a freshness indicator, and lets... more
This is one of those gifts we secretly covet and have a hard time handing over, but it will be worth it to see the look on Mom and Dad's faces when they try out the Vuzix iWear AV920 Video Eyewear. It works with an iPod or nearly any audio/video device, letting the wearer watch a virtual display that's equal to a 62-inch screen. They won't strain their eyes on the tiny portable DVD... more
Luggage is one of those things you hope to buy once and use forever. Which means that mom and dad could still be lugging around suitcases that don't (gasp!) have wheels. Upgrade their travel gear with the Heys Athena Ultra Lite 3-Piece set. It features a push-button handle for easy one-handed release and has in-line skate wheels for easy rolling. The exterior is a hard polypropylene shell that will withstand even the most clumsy... more
From breakfast on the patio to drinks in the living room, these Williams-Sonoma Wood-Grain Lacquer Trays are the perfect serving solutions. And sure, they're practical and sturdy, but so beautiful that they make great tabletop accents. Whether you go with the rich, dark burlwood or the classic oak, these stylish trays will look good in any home. It's the perfect gift for parents who love to entertain and want every detail to be just... more
Backyard BBQs were a common summer event in our family, but we found that Mom and Dad rarely used the big grill once the kids were gone. Enter the Weber-Stephen Baby Q Propane Grill. This is no flimsy portable grill that will only last one season. An enameled cast iron grate, stainless steel burner and cast aluminum lid and body make for a sturdy grill that runs on those inexpensive disposable propane tanks. Bon... more
For one of life's simple pleasures, soft cotton sheets rank pretty high. If mom and dad don't typically spend a lot of money on their bed linens, they'll be spoiled by these ultra-luxurious 100% Egyptian cotton sheets that come in thread counts up to 1000. And if you think sheets aren't a very exciting gift, remember that there are few gifts that recipients can enjoy every night for up to eight hours!
