10 Joint Presents For Parents Who Share Love And Life


Personalised Mementos

Everyone loves a gift that is entirely personal to them, and there is a multitude of ideas. If they love the garden, try an engraved wooden plaque which can even include the names of kids or grandchildren. Inside, wall art like the Nutty Family Wall Decor is a fabulous idea, especially if you find a favourite quote. Or why not spoil them with matching his and hers luxury Overnight Leather Bags complete with their own monograms!

Something Sentimental

There’s not much that parents adore more than the sentimental memories created by family photos. You can get creative with a wonderful photo collage or even arrange a photoshoot with your family. Good gifts for dad and mum are Large Signature Frames displaying photos from their wedding. This is a particularly great idea for a joint gift for a step-parent with a photo of the new extended family. Photo calendars also make the perfect gift, or what about a beautiful Life Story Journal to complete together? They will love them.

Drinking Gadgets

For connoisseurs of wine, any accessories, gizmos and gadgets are ideal presents for parents who have everything. You can treat them to a premium bottle of their favourite tipple and add in some extra gifts. A stunning Leather Wine Rack will be admired in any kitchen and help them store their bottles. Or how about a Natural Wine Preserver, a revolutionary device for preventing oxidation of their full-bodied drink.

Travel Tickets

Adventure gifts are perfect presents for recently retired parents. Don’t worry if you can’t afford tickets to faraway places with exotic beaches. Treat them both to a day out at a local attraction, tickets to national parks, museums, cinemas or art galleries - whatever they would enjoy. If they’re already travellers, then a Scratch Map is a fun idea where they scratch off all the locations they’ve visited. You can even choose a book like Walks In Nature and help them plan their next adventure!

Craft Masterclasses

Great gift ideas for parents are life experiences that let them explore their hobbies and learn from the best. Whatever their chosen pastime, from gardening to golf, a masterclass or days course with professionals gives them the gift of knowledge. From a Chef’s Experience for gourmet cooking to a Barossa Wine Experience with a day of expert tasting, there’s something awesome for every set of parents.

Weekend Mixology

Whether your parents are casual sippers or cocktail connoisseurs, they will relish the opportunity to make and shake their own drinks. They’re good gifts for parents who like nothing more than to relax in style. Choose a gin hamper or whisky hamper to share. Buy them all the ingredients for their favourite and a glass Cocktail Shaker Set with shaker, strainer and jigger. Even better, a Mixologist Grow Kit is an inventive idea for them to grow their very own ingredients!

Hobby Accessories

Everyone has a pastime or hobby which they turn to whenever they have a free moment. What is a good gift for older parents? Something which helps them enjoy their time even more. They’ll love anything connected with their obsession, from educational books to handy tools or sports equipment. Choose something inspirational to encourage their creativity, golf gifts, or perhaps lightweight binoculars for the bird watchers, or His ‘n hers iPad iBeds for the parents who are online fanatics.

Tipple Tour

For any parents that like to relax with friends at the weekend and entertain, a tour of their favourite tipple is bound to be well received. Whatever flavours they like from cider and ale to the Microbreweries of Australia, there’s a gift that will thrill. Let them savour a selection of rich red Shiraz, creamy Sauvignon Blanc and choices of the Finest Rosé Wine. Or really make their day special with some sparkling champagne tasting! Alcohol gift packs are great ideas for gifts for parents who have everything!

Family Fun

Time with the kids is something most parents look forward to, so why not choose something they can share together? Although most kids might love computer games, there’s always an opportunity to play a timeless game. Choose team games for hours of family fun, like the Drawsome People Game for competitive sketching and dice rolling to share with kids and grandkids. Alternatively, even parents who have everything will love a competition to complete a vintage 1000 Piece Puzzle.
