When it comes to finding holiday gifts for our hard-to-buy-for parents, the calendar seems to roll around super quick. Over the years, I have purchased some clever and thoughtful gifts, and then other times I’ve bought presents that were last minute and not so interesting. It can be tricky to find gifts for parents that are suitable, useful and cost-effective. I’d love to purchase extravagant gifts like a week-long-extended family vacay, however, that is simply not on the cards.
Time and time again I find myself watching online for interesting and unique gifting possibilities, and a few of my selections have been hits in past years. If you are shipping gifts to your loved ones, some of these options make it easy, taking out the hassle of wrapping and waiting in line at the post office.
Flytographer is another great gift for parents and families, and likely isn’t something that they would purchase for themselves. Flytographer is a concierge service which helps coordinate photoshoots in locations all over the world. No matter if you are living in Edmonton, or wintering in Palm Springs, Flytographer can hook you up with a photographer for a short 30-minute shoot, or even follow you around for an afternoon while you are vacationing in a dream location. It’s also a great gift to capture an entire extended family holiday or event. The possibilities are endless. Shoots start at $250US and gift cards are available for $50US and up.
