The Procrastinator’s Guide: Holiday Gifts for Your Parents

by Acute Editors

Now that you’re old enough to know who Santa really is, make sure to say thank you for all of the years he/she checked the list and put something under the tree for you whether you were naughty or nice.

The Homebody

Netflix

Pressed for time? In four minutes, you can get your mom and/or dad the gift that keeps on giving — a Netflix gift certificate. This gift is built for multiple budgets and whenever they watch their favorite show or movie, they’ll think of you.

The Fitness/Nutrition Junkie

Juicer

The juicing craze is not going anywhere. A juicer is perfect for the parent that does their best to keep the body they had in high school. More importantly, it shows that you care about the giftee’s health, an excellent message to send to someone who always made sure you ate all your fruits and veggies.

The Chef

If your parents host barbecues and other gatherings as much as mine do, mail-order steaks are perfect. Save them a trip to the butcher to get select cuts of meat and order right from your laptop.

The Overtimer

Let’s be honest, raising you wasn’t easy. Give the gift of relaxation and recovery with a trip to the spa.
