The Best Gifts For Parents Who Already Have Everything

·9 min read

Parents are notoriously hard to shop for. What could possibly compare to the gift of life that they gave to you? They may say there’s nothing else they want or need, but there are of course some thoughtful things to get as gifts for the parents who have everything.

Depending on the age range and hip factor of your dear old mom and dad, there may be many product categories that they don’t even know exist. It’s possible that they’re unaware of the existence of smart mugs that can keep their coffee hot for hours without reheating, or a waterproof speaker to make showers that much more enjoyable. They can’t ask for things they’ve never heard about, which is where you come in. For the next birthday or Christmas, surprise them with one of these gifts for parents who have everything that they know of.

If the matriarch and patriarch of your family ask for nothing but you still want to somehow give them the best, read on to find the perfect gift for those particularly hard to shop for parents.

1. iRobot Roomba i3

FOR THE CLEAN FREAK

If you have a parent who needs the house to be spotless at all times, help them out with a little robot that can clean for them. The iRobot Roomba sucks up stubborn dirt and messes from both hardwood and carpet with smart navigation reactive sensor technology. It learns your cleaning habits to offer personalized schedules and even connects to your voice assistants to control with vocal commands.

2. Ember Mug Temperature Control Smart Mug

FOR THE COFFEE FANATIC

I can’t speak for all parents, but my dad is constantly reheating his coffee in the microwave, which cannot make it taste particularly good. This smart mug solves that problem. It has temperature control that allows you to set an exact drinking temperature, and it is then able to maintain that temperature for up to one and a half hours. Any coffee drinker will greatly appreciate this gift to keep their coffee nice and hot (but not too hot).
