Framed Family Tree
We all like to think we’re larger than life, but in truth we’re really just branches on the grand tree of our ancestry. Screw that, most of us are just leaves at best. Some of us are maybe just a little speck of caterpillar vomit on one of those leaves (you know who you are). Your family tree doesn’t have to be that detailed though.
Some things get better with age and some would argue that relationships are one of them. One thing that definitely gets better though, is a fine whiskey. What better way to marry up two things that get better with time than with a personalized whiskey barrel? It’s a gift that they’ll no doubt appreciate if they need a stiff drink at the thought of all those years behind them…or all those years ahead!
Yes, your parents love your cooking, but they’d kind of like to get out for once. But if you buy them a restaurant gift card, you’re still sort of force feeding them. You should really stop that. An Open Table gift card lets them decide what to stuff in their own faces while gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes and reminiscing about a life shared. Or bickering over who ruined the kids. Or arguing over when the roof was replaced. You know how it is.
Here's an anniversary gift that will elevate the “sole”! Take those seaside strolls to a whole new level and leave a loving impression for all to see. There’s no doubt your parents could use some new footwear for their next escapade at the beach. Why not send a message with every click, click, click along the shore? A playful, affectionate reminder of the bond they share, these flip flops are the next big thing!
Harry and David have better taste than you. You don’t think so? Then you must have a gift basket store yourself somewhere, right? That’s what we thought. Yeah, we know, you’re good at other things and your parents are still proud of you. But leave the gift baskets to the experts.
The refrigerator provides an ideal canvas for artistic, decorative, and sentimental displays of all kinds. Yet most people just have an old grocery list or a bunch of alphabet magnets strewn across its surface haphazardly. Wouldn’t it be nicer if they could look at the front of the refrigerator and see the smiling faces of their most beloved family members gazing back at them? Make it happen with a fridge collage magnet.
If they’ve still got a competitive streak after all these years, this game is a perfect way to satisfy it while making up for all the times that one of them forgot to do the dishes. If you’ve never seen your parents argue over whose turn it is to take the trash out, brace yourself…
Personalized gifts are always the best. A picture frame is one thing; it’s something else entirely to show them that you know exactly what they want to look at by loading it with pictures that will make them happy. Just make sure you get it right. Otherwise it comes across as a weird attempt at mind control.
Everyone pretends to think those giant-headed drawings of people doing exaggerated things are silly, but give a framed one of themselves to your parents and watch. That thing’s gonna go on display for sure.
