Christmas Gifts Part 2 - Parents

Here is part 2 of my gift guides and this time it features ideas for parents. I think people get stuck buying parents the same gifts every year, I always get my dad cigars and sock YAWN! My mam always gets a new CD, slippers and jewellery. These guides have given my lots of good ideas and a reason not to be so boring with my gift giving.


I love the bread bin with the Welsh for bread on and the site also has a tea towel with the Welsh cake recipe on, well worth checking out. I couldn't pick my favourite piece from the Kirstie Allsopp range, they are all so nice. The green glass cake stand and stamp kits are very pretty and affordable so they are going on my shopping list.


  1. Kirstie Allsopp Range at M&S
  2. Welsh 'Bara' Bread Bin
    3. Jamie Oliver Italian Cooking Set
    4. Monsoon Cake Tin
Here are a few more gift ideas for parents, even though I've split them up into mum and dad I'm sure they would work well for either parent. (maybe not the Kirstie Allsopp range)




I think the camera kit and rounders presents are great fun and something that you can use together. I usually take the dog for a walk on Christmas day and try and walk off some of my dinner but a game of rounders would be just as good!

Have you got your parents gifts sorted yet? I've been thinking about what to get my mam for ages and still don't have a clue. She doesn't really like to cook or use expensive beauty products so I may take her out for dinner and to see a show. I've got 34 days to make up my mind!

P.S. I did some gift guides last year which you can see here and here which might give you a few extra ideas.

  7. Aww such cute ideas, buying presents for your parents always seemed challenging to me. Usually my fall back is jewelry with my mom and when it comes to my Dad/Step-dad, I never quite know. A piece of 2x4? A random saw blade? Something else random from Home Depot?

    Anyway lovely finds and I'm sure your parents will love the presents you pick out for them.
