That is the face of someone that already finished all their holiday shopping AND wrapped all their gifts. Haha, ok not totally true I still have a lot of wrapping to do. Shopping for Mom and Dad can be tough. Well in my case Mom is easy, legit she will like ANYTHING I give her, but Dad, not so much. He’s tricky. For both though, I like to be thoughtful with their gifts, to thank them for all those years of Catholic school, #sarcasm. In all seriousness though, I want to give things that will stand the test of time. So here are some of my favorite thoughtful gifts for Mom & Dad from Ralph Lauren.

Gifts for Mom

I love to give my Mom things that are timeless and classic, and that I know she’ll not only have for a long time, but will go with everything in her wardrobe. Some of my top gift picks for her are this cashmere scarf which is so soft and chic, these leather gloves, and these suede ankle booties. I know she’d pretty much wear this entire outfit I’m wearing, particularly the camel coat and the leather leggings. I actually remember her getting a pair of black leather Ralph Lauren pants that she wore to work (as an attorney). Very Ally McBeal, haha. They are amazing though, she still has them!

Gifts for Dad

My Dad is the opposite of my Mom. He is so hard to buy for. I know many of you can relate. There is one thing I can get him that I always know he will really love, pictures. He loves getting photos, so I’m really excited about these silver frames from Ralph Lauren for his home office. The other thing I know he hasn’t upgraded in a REALLY long time is his briefcase, and this one is super sleek and classic (and practical) so I’m excited to give this to him this year (luckily he doesn’t read my blog, pretty sure he thinks my blog is my Instagram so I’m not worried about ruining the surprise). Check out a few more gift ideas from Ralph Lauren if you’re shopping for your Dad below.

    The frame is a great idea! My dad is also hard to shop for, but I know the picture frame with a sentinel photo would be something he loves!

  2. Beautiful idea for your Dad – my Dad can be a tricky customer to buy for sometimes too!

    I love the frame for my Dad. Dad’s are always the hardest to shop for. I’m really stuck on what to get my father-in-law this year, maybe those nice gloves.
