December is finally upon us, and we're officially allowed to eat our weight in mince pies, drink mulled wine for breakfast, and start talking about presents.
(Okay, well we're allowed to do two out of three, right?)
It’s so lovely for a bride to surprise her mother and father with a little something on her wedding day to thank them for all of their love and support in the months leading up to the big day.
But in all honesty, it can be a little tricky to find the perfect gifts for parents… What do you get the two people in your life that seem to already have literally everything they would ever want or need?
When it comes to gifting parents, I tend to be a sucker for anything that’s personalized just for them.
For mom, maybe it’s an elegant frame displaying a favorite childhood picture, a pair of classic monogrammed leather gloves, or a stationery set donning her name.
For dad, it’s so special to gift little luxuries that he wouldn’t think of for himself—like a cashmere scarf, cuff links, or a crystal decanter.
Take a peek below at my handy gift guides for moms and dads. And even if you’re not tying the knot soon, Christmas is less than a month away, my dears. These little guides can help you check mom and dad off that ever-growing holiday shopping list.
