Christmas Presents For Parents: Affordable Gifts To Treat and Pamper Parents

Christmas presents for parents can be a bit of a minefield. Many people wonder what exactly to gift parents that will treat and pamper them, but are also affordable. Many of us aren’t going to be able to afford large, extravagant presents, but you can still gift thoughtful, special presents on a budget.

There are a few companies that do a spa-in-a-box present. They do make amazing Christmas presents for parents, but they can be pricey. You can put together your own spa-in-a-box. Putting it together yourself allows you to work within your own budget, and really personalise the gift for the recipient. You could add in things like:

  • Scented candles
  • Bubble bath
  • Loofah
  • Face mask
  • Foot mask


You can use their favourite scents, or brands.


Home Fragrances


If you’re looking for Christmas presents for parents who aren’t into long bubble baths, you could put together a gift box of home fragrances. Look for items like home fragrance oils, an oil burner, wax melts, scented candles, and scented radiator sachets. As far as the scent itself goes, Christmas scents make wonderful presents, so scents like cinnamon, spiced orange, mulled wine, or even sugar cookies are all great options.


Winter Warmers


Another wonderful Christmas present for parents is a hat, scarf, and glove set. You can find sets that are reasonably priced but made from soft, luxurious materials. You could look for sets in their favourite colour, or rich, autumnal colours.




Many of our entertainment options are now subscription based, but there’s no reason why they can’t be given as Christmas presents for parents. Both Netflix and Disney Plus have huge catalogues of shows and movies to watch, or if the recipient is more into documentaries perhaps a Discovery Plus, or Curiosity Stream subscription would be better suited. Other recipients may enjoy a more old-school subscription such as a magazine subscription.


Gift Vouchers


Gift vouchers can sometimes seem a little impersonal, but they can make wonderful Christmas presents for parents. Gift vouchers from a favourite coffee spot could be the perfect Christmas present for new parents. Or perhaps a voucher for a romantic restaurant for a date night, or a voucher for a bookstore.


Homemade Vouchers


You could always make your vouchers as a Christmas present for parents. Parents of newborns are likely to love vouchers for babysitting, or a home-cooked meal. Practical things may be a life saver for new parents, so think about what could offer that could help out.
