Holiday 2021: Gifts for Parents/In-Laws

Nov 1, 2021


Good morning!

This has been my most requested Gift Guide so I thought it would be helpful to survey you all for the best gift you’ve given a parent or in-law and combine them here along with my own ideas! You all had so many great suggestions and I came across a few things I had never heard of that I ended up buying for my parents so thank you. I sorted all the recommendation by products and then included a big list of experience gift ideas below that which I always think are a wonderful idea!


Product Ideas:


Personalized Bracelets 

I actually bought personalized beaded bracelets for my mom last year for Christmas with all of her grandkids names on them and she wears them daily. I came across this dainty gold bracelet though and love it! 


Nespresso Citiz

So many of you said Nespresso and this is the machine we have and love! I like that the frother Is not connected but if you think someone would prefer it all together, the model below would be my pick! 


Nespresso Lattissima


Ember Mug 

You know how I feel about this mug 😉 I own this and the travel version and use them daily. 


Our Place Always Pan 

We still love our pan so much and I bought one for both my mom and MIL for Christmas in year’s past and they use it daily. Plus, it looks beautiful out on your stove! My code (SHAHEEN10) for 10% off sitewide should still be active too!


Barefoot Dreams Blankets (Nordstrom Rack version here)

Again, we own both and I have purchased these for both my mom and MIL and highly recommend. The NR one is wonderful but definitely much small and less thick!



This is something I had never heard of and ordered for my mom!
