‘Tis the season to really treat mum and dad and here’s our tips for some awesome Christmas gifts for parents this year. Whether you’re looking for ideas for Christmas gifts for mum or Christmas gifts for dad – or both – we’ve got you covered with these cool gifts.

Family Portraits

Perfect for even the most hard to buy for mum and dad, personalised family trees or prints make wonderful Christmas gifts. We love the personalised bear family print from The Drifting Bear Company and this gorgeous family tree papercut from The Portland Co – either one a Christmas gift your parents will treasure forever.

Cocktails By Post

A three-month subscription to a cocktail kit will banish the post-Christmas blues right through to March next year (which is, coincidentally, when our hot air balloon flying season begins!). TASTE Cocktails will send out the complete ingredients for a different cocktail every month and the subscription is easily extended if mum and dad decide they want to be home mixologists a little longer.

Up, Up And Away

A fabulously festive Christmas hot air balloon ride gift will leave them on cloud nine this year. An airborne adventure is just waiting to be unwrapped when mum and dad find one of Virgin Balloon Flights Christmas gifts packages under the tree. Starting from just £129, choose the package with the voucher and gift extras to suit both your budget and their flexibility on when to fly. The perfect Christmas gift for parents who love a good adventure.

Classic Leather Photo Album

In the decades before smartphones and tablets, putting pictures in an album meant more than just organising them on a screen. And we still think nothing beats looking through actual prints in a beautifully bound book, such as these leather-backed family photo albums from the Bespoke Album Company. It just so happens that the stunning photographs from a hot air balloon ride would also look wonderful alongside family snaps. What would your mum and dad love to find under the tree this Christmas morning?
