What should I get my mom and dad for Christmas?

They are always doing so much for me so i want to get them a nice gift. So let me tell you about them. My mom loves to play piano,cook,run,and likes to look at the things in the coach store but never buys anything there. My dad likes the two and a half men show, to cook on the grill, and pretty much any sports show on tv. I know I asked this more than once but I need more ideas. Thanks in advance

    Go with your mom to the coach store and keep an eye on what she wants. You can't go wrong with something she said, and keep and ear open to what she says she could use or would like to have. Without realizing it, she'll have given you enough to choose from without intending to. If you can't, get something from her though, try getting her a nice bracelet and giving her charms for it on occasions.

    Your dad is a bit more tricky. You know what he watches for shows, so you could get him a dvd or blu-ray tv season of those shows so he could watch them whenever. You could also try upgrading any sports gear he has. Say if he likes to play golf, you might get him a nicer putter or a spare pack of golf balls. Same thing goes for if he started playing video games, collects anything, or engages in some neat activity.

    Maybe you can get your mom a recipe book! At borders they have A LOT of recipe books, and there are a lot that are on specific types of food. I have one that is full of cookie recipes only! And they taste amazing! (Also, they're not that expensive) I'm not so sure what you can get for your dad, but maybe a book, or some tools? Its up to you and lol I cant really think of what to get for your dad! Hope I helped even a little bit!

    Matching aprons, for your mom cook books, coach purse or wallet(try the outlet stores they are a lot cheaper than the stores in the mall ) running shoes, and for your dad you can get him DVDs, cookbooks as well and sports wear.

    Get something for your parents which could make them happy, that would give them the real happiness and something that they would rember for a really long time. Do make sure that whatever gift you are going to give is from inside of your heart a real deep heart...dont make it as if you gave them a present just for the sake of gving... If u still are not sure what to buy, look at both your parents give them something that makes them geniuely happy, haappy from inside of their hearts.......
