I’m not going to lie, I freak out a little when buying my parents gifts. Whether it’s for the holiday season, birthdays, or just because, I always want to make sure I’m buying them something they can use pretty often (and, of course, something they don’t have already). If you’re struggling to find your parents the perfect gift for birthdays or retirement, we’ve got you covered.
Your parents (or your friends who are new parents) are going to love these gifts. And no, they’re not headphones, keychains, or any boring gift they’ve received 100 times already. We did a little digging and thought outside the box for this one! See which gifts your parents will like.
After all, they did spoil you for every Christmas or birthday. It’s time to pay it forward.
Best Gift Ideas for Parents on Amazon
Nothing beats a warm blanket as you relax on your day off. If one of your parents is always cold, then it’s especially a great gift for them.
This is probably the most “tech gift” on this list. The whole family will love this, actually!
Let your parents know that they only have to keep up with one remote control now. Power up your TV, adjust the volume and use all of your favorite streaming services (Amazon, Spotify, Netflix, HBO, and more) with this awesome gadget.
This is too cute! Get the family name engraved on a nice cutting board. It’s a thoughtful gift and a lovely keepsake for home cooks.
The high-quality board is only $24.99, which is a fantastic deal.
So maybe you’re not shopping for your parents, but you need a great Mother’s Day gift or holiday gift for your favorite new parents or mom-to-be. This sleep soother will probably help keep your friends sane! The sleep aid has 15 to 30-minute timers to help babies fall asleep.
A customer gave it five stars and wrote, “I never thought this would work… but it has saved my life.” Pampering your friends is a good feeling! New parents probably have enough wine glasses, picture frames, and tumblers (thanks to their wedding gifts), so get them something that’s helpful to them and baby.
Paying for massages can be pricey, so get Mom this $29 back massager. She can put it behind her work chair and get a nice massage as she works. Check out this fantastic review from Christina. (Sounds like it’ll make a great Christmas gift.)
Here’s another excellent gift for your parents or the new parents in your life. If your best friend just had a baby, consider this instead of a pricey robot vacuum or Alexa. Remind her that relaxing after a long day is very important!
It’s also a fantastic retirement gift!
Mom needs an air fryer or an Instant Pot ASAP! She can prepare meals 2-3 times faster now.
Leave this on her kitchen countertop and surprise her.
