I love my parents, but man, are they hard to shop for.

My mom is the easiest to shop for — in fact, she’s so easy I sometimes end up wanting to get her a little too many presents. My dad, on the other hand … WHEW! He is officially the hardest person I’ve ever had to find gifts for. He’s the type that would love a ’69 Camaro or 80″ TV, but when it comes to realistic gifts? I’ve always struggled finding one that truly impresses him (to be fair, he loves anything anyone gives him, but he’s my daddy, I love to surprise him).

I’ve learned that when it comes to shopping for the grandparents in my life, we can’t just hold out to the very last minute and hope to find something perfect. Our family usually has the best luck with gifts that are personal or customized. That doesn’t mean I have to spend a lot of money, I just have to plan ahead. We’ve had some pretty good successes the past two years, and in all my research for Christmas, I’ve come across several more ideas that will work really well for both my parents and many of them are great ideas for going in on together with a sibling or other family member. Chances are if they’ll impress my parents? At least one of them will impress any hard-to-shop for grandparents in your life as well.
