When it comes to requests for guides, gifts for in laws, parents and grandparents are always at the top of the list. And I get it, they can be super hard to buy for! They don’t really need anything, they rarely give you ideas, and it’s easy to feel really stuck.
But if you’re feeling that way, I personally recommend getting them a couple gift instead of individual gifts. This allows you to work with a bigger budget, and you only have to get one gift! WIN!
2023 Gifts For In Laws, Parents, and other couples
When it comes to gifts for in laws, parents, grandparents or any other couple, ChappyWrap blankets are my #1 suggestion. I wasn’t sure what all the hype was about for a while, but now we have TWO and are completely obsessed.
These blankets are so cozy, well made, machine washable and beautiful. They come in tons of colors and prints, and I truly can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t enjoy it. Yes, even if they already have other blankets. You can read more of my review here!
We got this digital picture frame for my Nana a while back and it was such a hit. The frame rotates through a slideshow of photos whenever it’s turned on, so it makes a great gift from all of the siblings, grandchildren or even the whole family.
The best part is that you can email photos directly to the frame, so the recipient doesn’t have to do anything in order to see new pictures. After any family gathering or cute photoshoot, just send any photos they’d like to see to the frame, and they’ll start seeing it in the slideshow!
When in doubt, personalized gifts for in laws and parents are always a good idea. In addition to the photo frame, photo calendars, a puzzle of their grandchildren or even a painted ornament of their dog are such fun ideas. And you can use code LAKEHOLIDAY23 for 20% off those 3 gifts!
I also love gifting this return address stamp – we have it and use it all the time!
I know air fryers are more of a millennial obsession, but this cutie little Wonder Oven is actually, well, wonderful. It can air fry, bake, roast, toast, reheat and broil – and it has steam infusion technology to help you get crispy exteriors and soft interiors. And it looks cute! It’s also currently on sale in 4 of the 6 colors so now is a great time to snag one. We LOVE ours.
You can also get the Wonder Oven at Nordstrom which is a GREAT option if you’re shopping for someone picky. If for whatever silly reason they don’t want it, they can exchange it and get whatever they want from Nordstrom. That’s called zero risk, baby!
Our Place has a ton of other great gifts but the other one I’d call out for parents is the Perfect Pot. If they are getting older and don’t want to lift a heavy pot every time they make soup or a sauce, this one is so lightweight and easy to clean. A great gift!
If you have a bunch of siblings, maybe consider doing a group gift all together! This is an especially good idea when you are shopping for parents or in laws that already have anything/buy affordable things for themselves all the time. So instead of thinking in those terms, think bigger!
The Frame TV is one really great idea. I honestly really want to get one myself since our TV hangs over our fireplace. Wouldn’t it be so much better if it looked like art was hanging there?!
And another idea is a Jura Coffee and Espresso Machine. It’s definitely pricey but people who own it are obsessed. Apparently it can make 11 types of drinks (lattes, americanos, etc) all with the press of a button. It even grinds the beans before each drink and self cleans too!
My brother got this dish pad for me last year and it is seriously an amazing gift. Not only does it look nice, but ot’s made of a fast drying material that helps prevent mildew or bacteria. It also folds neatly to save space so you can easily store it in a drawer.
I honestly don’t know how we ever got by without it – or how we ever used one of those ugly dish dryers that stayed out on display all the time. Get out of here!
I have a Hatch Restore and I think it’s a great gift for any couple that struggles with shorter days during the winter. You create all of your own settings for both bedtime and wake up in their app, depending on what works best for you.
If your parents or in laws hate breaking out the clunky ironing board and don’t like leaky steamers – the Nori Press is essentially a more convenient combo of the two!
Food gifts are a great idea for couples who don’t like stuff. I was just talking to someone about how good Harry & David pears are – truly so delicious. I also love the idea of picking out something they love on Goldbelly! It’s such a fun way to send some nostalgia to someone you love while supporting a restaurant you love while you’re at it!
Another option is to invite them over for dinner or to a restaurant they love. And if you still want to give them something physical to open, this Wine & Champagne Chiller is one of my parents favorite gifts! They still use it after I gave it to them years ago!
