It’s the age old dilemma – choosing a gift for his folks. Everyone’s situation is different, and choosing the right gift will require knowledge of the recipient’s interests. If I’m unsure about choosing a personalised gift, I tend to stick to homewares and general knick knacks. The following are a few gift ideas to cover a range of occasions.
1. Crate and Barrel Maganda Vase
Price: $29.95 at crateandbarrel.com
This earthy looking vase would make a lovely gift. It features a wraparound design and would complement a range of different household décor. It’s made from grained acacia wood and is completely watertight. This would look great both indoors and outdoors.
2. Kate Spade Two of a Kind Glasses

Win his parents over with this set of engraved ‘his’ and ‘hers’ glasses. The lettering is casual but classy. They’re a highball design and made from non-lead crystal. It’s a simple yet thoughtful gift idea.
3. Crate and Barrel Bellamy Carafe
Price: $26.95 at crateandbarrel.com
This handblown carafe is sleek and modern. If his parents enjoy the odd glass of wine, then this may just be the gift to give. This carafe is made from handblown and molded glass, and has a fire-polished rim. I’m sure his parents would appreciate the design of this carafe. Extra points for gifting a bottle of wine to go with it!
