Parents are notoriously hard to buy for. If they want something bad enough they’ll often go out and buy it themselves. If you ask them what they want, all too often, they’ll say they don't need anything. You just have to surprise them and these gift ideas will certainly do that.

Make It Personal

There is nothing more special than a personalised gift; it shows you’ve put a great deal of thought into the present. This cushion, for example, can be personalised to illustrate their family tree—just make sure you don’t leave anyone out!

Put Them In The Frame

Parents always love to see pics of  family and friends. Get them a multi-photo photo frame - you’ll find them in contemporary, traditional and shabby chic styles - and before you give it to them, fill it with snaps of their favourite people. 

Let It Grow On Them

If your folks are green fingered, they will love a tree or shrub that they can plant in the garden and watch grow. If they don’t have any outdoor space, how about a flowering pot plant, a planted-up terrarium or a selection of cacti? If they are not natural gardeners, think about a faux flower arrangement; it will look great as the centrepiece on the table for Christmas dinner.

Make It a Double Espresso

If they are coffee aficionados, a professional coffee maker will be just the ticket. Look for one that comes with a milk frother and can make a whole menu: Espresso, Latte, Cappuccino, Flat White and Americano.

Sound Them Out

If your parents are still relying on an ancient CD player, bring them up-to-date with a wireless sound system to stream music throughout their home in Hi-Fi sound. They will be amazed to find  they can play different music in different rooms and can download all their music onto a smartphone, tablet, MP3 player or the Cloud and make their CD shelves redundant.

Bring On Playtime

If yours is the sort of family that loves a good old board game, it’s time to revamp the selection on offer with some of the latest new launches, such as Emojinary; or perhaps, look for updated versions of family favourites. Monopoly is now available with a bankcard version, for example.

Turn Them Into Brewers

So your parents can experiment with making their own cider, ale or wine, splash out on a home-brew set for them. It should keep them busy until at least Easter!
