Retro’s Christmas Gift Guide: For Your Parents

Happy Thursday everyone… we are almost there! This week has been insanely busy but for some reason it feels like it is dragging more than ever so I am very happy to be coming to the end. As I mentioned already we are flying home this Sunday so this weekend I plan to squeeze in as much more of Christmas in New York as I can and finish off my shopping. My parents are left on my list and I think we can all agree that that parents can be difficult to buy for when all they ever say is ‘I don’t need anything – please don’t bring presents’ haha! So, for today’s Christmas Gift Guide I thought I would share some of the ideas I have with you…


From past experience, I know that my mom loves when we print photos for her and put them in a frame. It’s such a simple & affordable gift but a great one in my opinion. She also loves candles so that’s always a very reliable option too – I love the scent of this Jo Malone one. Another thing I spotted were these earrings – I love giving and receiving jewelry always.


Dad’s can definitely be tricky to shop for. However, there are a few items that are always pretty safe to go with. Like these Calvin Klein socks – you can’t go wrong with snazzy socks. I also thought this Fitbit was a good gift idea, my dad loves his. A new wallet always goes down pretty well too, this Ted Baker option is nice!

I hope you found this helpful if you are last minute present shopping like me. Most websites have notified us that there last shipping dates before Christmas are next Monday/Tuesday so be sure to get those orders in if you need to.

Chat soon,

x Erika
