6 Things We Wish We Could Buy for Our Parents
To show our appreciation for all the years they’ve nurtured and provided for us, we make it a point to give back to our parents through simple gestures like treating them out to a nice meal or a shopping spree. After working hard for the family, parents deserve to enjoy the finer things in life, especially when all of their kids have finished school and now have stable jobs.
Given a chance, what dream item would you get for your parents? Is it a brand new car, an all-expenses paid trip, or a house? When it comes to our parents, it’s sky’s the limit for sure. To give you an idea of what to get for your parents, we’ve prepared a list that will inspire you to save up for the “ultimate” parent gift!
1. A luxe appliance that can improve the home or make chores easier
These days, appliances are becoming more advanced – thanks to technology. From having bulky TVs in the living room, many homes now have slim smart TVs that can connect to the Internet so it will be or look up Youtube videos with ease.
As an alternative, you can also look into purchasing a robotic vacuum that can clean floors with a touch of a button! Your parents can just relax and lounge on the sofa as the vacuum does its magic of getting rid of dirt and dust.
2. A “choose-your-own-pampering package” date at the spa
Moms and dads don’t admit it often, but every once and a while, they would like to feel like royalty. To do just that, why not schedule a spa appointment and let them choose the treatments they would like to get?
A refreshing facial, a calming massage, or a reviving body scrub can make them feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the next chapter of their lives. After your spa appointment, complete the royal treatment by treating them to tea and macarons.
3. A designer bag for Mom and a watch for Dad
Even if they don’t admit it, parents seldom buy things for themselves. Instead of buying something they really like, they often think twice if it’s worth it, choosing to save the money for family expenses. Why not give them a gift they can use often?
Mom would surely appreciate a designer handbag she can use when going out. Make sure you pick out a neutral color that can go with any outfit! Meanwhile, Dad will love a new watch, too! Look up vintage time pieces that can go with casual or formal attire.
4. An all-expenses paid trip to their dream destination
Now that they have more time on their hands, parents would be excited to go on a trip without worrying about the kids being left at home. Ask them about their dream destination, the things they want to do, and places they want to see so you can prepare an itinerary.
They might want to explore the city on their own so leave some room for breaks in between activities so they have time to go on an adventure. Don’t forget to give them enough pocket money, of course!
5. A brand new car
Speaking of going on an adventure, why not surprise them with a new car they can use whenever they please? They can use it when they have to run errands, dropping by the grocery, or even visiting the mall. It doesn’t have to be a fancy limousine – let them choose among the choices you can shortlist! How about a top-notch sedan, an SUV, or even a minivan!
6. A condo unit in a prime location
Now that the children have flown the coop, a family home can feel empty and lonely. While you can still keep and maintain it, you may want to give them a condo unit they can turn into a space they’ve always dreamed of. With a few belongings to consider, they can pick the finishes, the furniture, and the décor that will turn the space into a home.
