Here are a couple of Christmas gift ideas for parents that are a little more creative than an Amazon gift card, coffee mug, scented candle, or a Best Buy gift card.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Parents
Metropark Annual Pass – If your folks are getting older and don’t get out as much as they should, a Metroparks season vehicle pass for all 13 Metroparks is a great idea that gives all year around and may inspire a fitness trend. Or, maybe they’ll just appreciate the year-round beauty that the changes of seasons in Michigan inspire.
They’re on sale now. 2022 Metropark Passes are on sale NOW. Buy before 12/31 and get all of 2023 for $35 – a $5 savings – plus… if you buy now… it’s like getting a FREE month and a half. You can purchase your 2023 Metroparks Annual Pass HERE.
StickTite Instant Reading Lenses – If mom or dad uses “cheaters” to read print close-up, these little reusable lenses can be applied to any pair of eyewear – sunglasses, non-prescription fashion glasses, goggle/masks, utility glasses, etc – converting them into magnifier reading glasses. MORE INFO…
Copper Compression Socks & Gloves – I use the gloves for my wrist aches and pains and I’m completely happy with the results. I sent my parents some socks and gloves and they said it really helped them with their day to day aches and pains and stiffness. MORE INFO…

Light Therapy – This brightens up the cloudiest Michigan days. Verilux HappyLight Touch, a 10,000 Lux tablet device. I’ve already gifted these in the past. You’d be amazed what it does for sleep patterns, and mild to severe forms of Seasonal Affective Disorder – especially in older adults. My parents aren’t big on technology so they were amazed at how something so easy to use could make them feel so much better. MORE INFO…
Modern Appliances – I sometimes giggle when I visit my parents and see the outdated, inferior technology they hang onto just because it “isn’t broken”. EXAMPLE: My mom’s vacuum cleaner is outrageously loud and ineffective. They make such efficient, lightweight household cleaners and devices these days that your mom might appreciate an upgrade like this modern, versatile steam mop.

Puffy Mattress – As they get older, it’s only natural to want to appreciate and to take care of your parents and try to repay them for raising you. My folks have never been very modern and have always been slow to adapt to change. They don’t upgrade their furniture very often and had no idea how far mattresses have come in the past few years, so I purchased them a Puffy Mattress. Puffy Mattresses are unbelievably comfortable and that’s what I want most for my parents as they get up their in years – their comfort. MORE INFO…

Your Time – Now that I’m getting older and my own children are starting to become independent, I’m starting to realize how important it is to spend time with own parents. A paint and sip wine experience with Mom or a show or local sporting event with Dad means more than flowers or a new coffee mug. Meadow Brook Hall tours, Painting With a Twist, a holiday show (like Cirque) at the Fox Theatre, Pistons or Red Wings game, are great Christmas Gift ideas your parents may cherish.
