A pair of socks for grandpa and anti-aging cream for mom... Don't be left empty-handed! As funny as it sounds, this tragedy is real when it comes to giving gifts to one's own flesh and blood. Parents and grandparents are not that demanding; A self-made gift is enough for them.

If you want to get a really thoughtful gift for a change this year, you should read our tips for the 10 best Christmas gifts for parents and grandparents :

1. Photo calendar from snapfish by HP

Our all-time favorite! The photo calendar – always works and for everyone. You can even get your personal Christmas present for free here at snapfish. The family gets pee in their eyes.

2. Fashion from TOPSHOP

This has probably never happened before: Winter Heroes promotion with 50% discount at TOPSHOP + 10% student discount on top . You can dress your mom in new clothes and have enough money to reward yourself with a hot item!


Sounds expensive, but it doesn't have to be! Get together with your mom and buy your dad a new TV. But not just any, but a slice from SONY. You even get a 25% student discount on selected models at SONY .

4. Taking Woodstock – Audiobook

Your grandparents are 68 years old and are mourning their hippie days? Give them Taking Woodstock as a free audio book ! This will allow them to reminisce about their wild times and understand you better.

5. Dream vacation

And if you already know that the three days of Christmas with your family are just going to be too much and you need a break afterwards, send them on a trip! With a vacation powered by Groupon you can save up to 60% on this fun.
