Food or drink related gift. Either a voucher like others are suggesting, some wine, or something they can cook with maybe?

Be there for them, perhaps some food and a cake for a small party. I admit, I should take my own advice as it's hard to be away from your own parents, unless they wronged you.

I usually take mine out for a meal, or do something with them at home. They don’t need more things. If they do, they normally tell me

I don’t have a clue what to get for my parents either so this year I have made my own hamper for them. I got a free cardboard box from the fruit and veg section in the supermarket and wrapped it in Christmas paper and filled it with food and drink items they will like. You can then control how much you want to spend with how many items you choose to put in there 🙂

You haven’t said if they have a garden. If they do a garden centre voucher would most probably be very welcome. I’d enjoy spending that, they could take me with them.

Age? Budget? Hobbies? Hard to advise without a bit of info. If they live near London and are still active there is a link for half price theatre tickets on my chat thread 'Phantom of the Opera '.

Practical things they need or things I've seen them look at but won't buy themselves. Alternatively, experiences are great presents and you can buy vouchers last minute!
