Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Parents

Updated on April 25, 2014

Valentine's Day Gifts for Parents

Surprise your parents with a great Valentine's Day gift for Mom and Dad. I have lots of Valentine gifts for parents.

Valentine's Day is a great day to show your parents how much you love them. I have presents you can give them together or separate his and hers gifts, along with individual Valentine gifts for Mom and Dad.

Don't have any money? I have some ideas for that, too.

Valentine Gift for Parents

How about giving them a night at a local bed and breakfast? A bed and breakfast establishment is usually held in a home where guests can sleep in a beautifully decorated bedroom and awake to a home cooked breakfast. It's relaxing and romantic.

Another idea is to give them a gift card to a local restaurant where they can go to have a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Valentine Ideas for Parents

Cook your parents a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. The food isn't as important as the idea behind it. Create a Valentine's mood by playing some soft music in the background, while adding candles to the dinner table.

You can easily find inexpensive candles at a local dollar type store or a chain such as Walmart. Otherwise, I have some candle suggestions for you.

Isn't this beautiful? What a romantic centerpiece it would make.

Imagine what a pretty table setting these would help to create.

 

How about finding a picture of your parents from when they first met or a wedding picture of theirs and put it in a Valentine frame?

Think of the special memories this gorgeous pewter frame could display.

 

Valentine Poems for Parents

As easy as it is to go on the internet and find a Valentine poem you can print out for a parent, as a mom, I can tell you that most parents would rather receive a poem that was written by their child from the heart.

It doesn't matter if the poem doesn't rhyme correctly or if there are spelling or grammatical errors. What matters is that the poem was specially written for your parents.

However, as hard as one may try, there are some people who just aren't comfortable writing poetry. If this is the case, check out this beautiful poem I found on Amazon.

His and hers items can make great gifts.

His and Hers Gifts

Matching necklaces can make for a lovely gift. What I like about these is that they look sharp, modern and are made of titanium.

The watches are durable, due to it's metal frame, along with being easy to read.

Aren't these nice looking? I love the pattern and they certainly would look nice on the bed or couch.

 

Valentine's Gift Guide for Parents

Be sure not to overspend on your gift. Most parents are happy just to get anything. If you don't have much money, you could always just do something nice for your parents.

Do they have a room that needs painting? How about a garage that needs to be cleaned out? Perhaps you could do some yard work or some cleaning around the house. Maybe you could just serve them breakfast in bed.

      I thought that was a really good idea to get a picture of when they were first married. Good choices. I liked the his & hers matching watches.
