One of the hardest parts of Christmas is buying gifts for your parents. They deserve month-long vacations and fancy spa gifts, but your budget doesn’t quite allow for that. When you throw your significant other’s parents into the mix, it can get even more overwhelming. That’s why I wanted to put together this simple gift guide for your parents and in-laws, so you can treat them this holiday season!

Gift Guides for Parents & In-Laws
Gift Guide for Your Mom & Mother-in-Law
Gift Guide for Your Dad & Father-in-Law
Shirts// Almost every dad I know needs a nice button down shirt. Whether it be for work or a nice date night, they’re essential. These shirts are nice, and a little more expensive then they might spend on themselves.
Football Pullover// Find your dad or father-in-law’s favorite football team, and grab them this nice pull-over. It’s perfect for the winter months and nice enough to wear to a lot of companies’ “causal” work days. PS This is under $100, and if you watch Kohl’s sales long enough, I’m sure it’ll be even cheaper!
Dopp Kit// Parents fairly often forget to update important items, and a Dopp kit is one of those. Get them a nice updated one that will last awhile. Also, this one is reasonably priced at $30!
Slippers// My dad wears his slippers until they have holes, they’re always on his feet starting in the fall! These are really nice, and warm!
Leather Gloves// Same with your mom and MIL, your dad and FIL want to look good. These leather gloves are under $100 and come in different sizes.
Scarf// A couple years ago my dad asked for a nice scarf to wear with his nice winter jacket. Guys get cold too, and who says that men can’t like soft cashmere?
Music Essentials// This speaker and record player are perfect ways for dads to play their favorite music. Anyone else’s dad always put music on while the family plays cards? Ours do, and I know that they’d love either of these!
Coffee Mug// L.L. Bean mugs are going to keep his coffee cold for a very long time, perfect for dads who forget about their coffee. Also, it’s really durable for those dads who might forget their coffee on the top of their cars a couple of times a month.
