Don’t Forget Mom and Dad: Parents Under $50 Gift Guide


We’re a few weeks away from Christmas, Hanukkah and are already deep into the gift buying holiday season. I know a few people that are done with their shopping but most of us are still checking off our list.

One demographic of family that sometimes we forget to shop for until last minute is our parents! Eeek!

Sadly, too many of us take our parents for granted. A lot of times, mom may not want you breaking your budget to get her a gift and may not want an expensive item. Get mom and dad or some other parental figure in your life a lovely gift they may not get for themselves like scented candles or nice note cards.

Here are ideas for gift items for your parents:




SYDNEY LOVE OVERNIGHT BAG  Mom and dad will adore an overnight bag for quick trips out of town or when coming to visit their grandkids across town or across the country. This bag is half off right now, down from $98 to $50 and shipping is free for the holidays. It is spacious with two side pockets and a back pocket externally for easy access. I love that this bag can be wiped clean.


LAURA MERCIER LITTLE INDULGENCES HAND BODY CRÈME SET You can never go wrong with a rich emolient gift box and Laura Mercier is a great brand. For mom, she’ll love this hand & body cream set that includes 4 1 oz travel tubes with the following scents: Ambre Vanillé, Almond Coconut Milk, Crème Brûlée, Tarte au Citron. It ships free from Macy’s for $32.00.


PHILIP B – LAVENDER HAND CRÈME, 350ML For dad, Philip B’s vitamin-rich ‘Lavender Hand Crème’ hydrates and heals rough, dry skin. Formulated with African Shea Butter and Safflower Oleosomes, this moisturizing lotion has an stress-relieving aroma-therapeutic scent derived from Pure Provencal Lavender and Flower Oils. It absorbs quickly for a non-greasy, lightweight feel. It’s $35 at Net-A-Porter.com


ROCHESTER REVERSIBLE QUARTER-ZIP PULLOVER CASUAL MALE XL BIG & TALL You can never go wrong with a pull over. This Casual Male reversible sweater is warm, roomy and perfect for dad. It’s under $50 for about $34 by a reseller on EBay.


ISOTONER UNLINED DRIVING GLOVES Isotoner driving gloves are well known for their  superior fit, flexibility and a non-slip leather palm to improve grip for secure handling of devices. These imported nylon and Lycra spandex gloves are hand washable.  They’re on sale for $22.80, down from $32 at JCPenny.com



NATURAL LIFE ‘HOME IS WHERE YOUR MOM IS’ WOODEN WALL ART Nordstrom sells this gorgeous piece of wall art for just $18. It is wooden and 6″ x 6″ x 1 1/2″. I love motivational messages.
