What Our Editors Are Gifting Their Parents This Holiday Season

The Everymom’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. We only recommend products we genuinely love.

As we check off our holiday gifting list this year, there are some very important people to cover, including our parents and in-laws (otherwise known around your house as maybe grammy, nana, mimi, bubbe, gramps, grampa, and I’m sure a whole host of other creative grandparent nicknames).

These special people deserve extra special gifts, but they aren’t always the easiest to shop for. In particular, I find my father to always be impossible to shop for (does he need another tie or wallet this year?). Today, we’re sharing what The Everymom editors are gifting to their parents, including practical, creative, and personalized items that every gram and gramps will certainly love.

Take a look below at what our editors are buying their parents this holiday season.

Luxe Activity Tracker

My mom has been a longtime Fitbit user—we've often heard how she once clocked all 10,000 steps walking around the airport during a flight delay—so I'm excited to gift her the most up-to-date Luxe design. Not only is it lightweight (and pretty!), but it'll help her keep even better track of her sleep and overall wellness with movement reminders, mindful minutes, and more. —Kathy Sisson, Assistant Managing Editor

2019 Oregon Pinot Noir

My in-laws love drinking red wine and enjoy trying out new brands on special occasions, so the holiday season is the perfect time to gift them a bottle. This delicious Pinot Noir includes mouth-watering aromas of summery red cherry, currant, and red plum. —Julia Birkinbine Poulter, Managing Editor


Oversized Stroopwafel Turtleneck

I love to buy my mom something luxurious that she just wouldn’t think to buy for herself. This year, I went with a cozy cashmere sweater from Everlane in a great neutral color that I know she will get a ton of use out of this winter. She always complains about being cold so I know this will be a big hit. —Ally Pagar-Wolf, Chief of Sales & Marketing

Personalized Grandma Ornament

Sometimes it’s hard to find personalized ornaments that are cute and high-quality enough to use year after year. This ornament is right in line with my mother-in-law’s style. Plus, she loves personalized gifts to show off her growing “batch” of grandkids. —Kathy Sisson, Assistant Managing Editor

The last time I visited home, I noticed my parents could use a new, quality-made cutting board and I love this one from Crate & Barrel. It has a slip-proof bottom and includes grooves to collect scraps or juices. A gift they wouldn’t think to buy themselves, but one that I know they’ll use nearly every day. —Julia Birkinbine Poulter, Managing Editor
