There's never a bad time to embrace the holiday shopping spirit—especially when it comes to picking out gifts for your parents (or the teachers, siblings, or in-laws that fill that parental role in your life). After all, Mom and Dad deserve something truly special—that they'll actually use.
Your gift options are literally endless thanks to online shopping. But, that can also lead to some serious decision fatigue. That's why I've curated this list of the best gifts for parents, depending on their hobbies and interests.
Peep a few of the best gifts for parents, here:
Always catching their hands in the cookie jar? Send a box of alfajores ASAP. Or, maybe the neighbors know them for their wild game nights—a shiny new Scrabble board is a click away. There’s also a chance your parents are totally sentimental, in which case a personalized collage frame is sure to start the waterworks.
Even if they’re the kind of parents who assure you they don’t need anything, the smallest gift can be a thoughtful way to show your love and appreciation for them.
See below for the 35 best gifts for parents—thoughtful, practical presents that they'll actually use.
