    My parents wanted the same gifts year after year. I guess they chose these gifts to make it easier on me (during my teens) but they also loved the scents. As I got older, I still included these as part of their gifts.

    Mom - Miss Dior perfume
    Dad - Old Spice “anything”

    My father died 38 years ago, when I was almost 13 years old and my mother died 24 years ago, when I was 27 years old. So I really don't remember what I bought my mom, but I do remember giving my dad tie dyed handkerchiefs every Christmas. He always seemed to love them, even though I'm sure his reaction was just to make me happy. I miss tie dying hankies for him, I wish I could do it for him again.

    I created gifts this year for my parents + Family members. If your like me and a bit short of festive funds. Getting creative is always an option. Below is one of the shirts I made.
    Good thing is that this is available for everyone if they are short of any ideas for gifts + plus you help me a little if you do like and grab one.

    My Dad always wanted Old Spice aftershave and my Mom wanted whatever I gave her. She was not picky, as long as chocolate was included some way or another.
