Turn Santa for your parents this Christmas, with this comprehensive gifting guide

Who says Santa only gives gifts to kids? This Christmas, reverse the roles by playing Santa for your parents. If you’re wondering what to get, we’ve got you covered!

Custom teapot and cups

Do your folks like starting their mornings with the leisurely ‘chai ki chuski’? Make their tea (or coffee) taste sweeter with this Handpainted Clay Tea Set from Zwende, which comprises a teapot and two kulhads, so that they never miss the feeling of bhaanr’er cha. What’s more, you can even customise them with hand-painted caricatures, a quote, and a personalised text! All for Rs 2,085.


Self-Care Gift Bundle 

If your mom enjoys self care, she will simply love this Festive Zero Waste Gift Bundle, which is handcrafted by Bare Necessities. The hamper comes with a terracotta body scrub, two scented spa bars, and a lip balm. Take a step towards helping the environment with this zero-waste, sustainable gifting option, available for Rs 930.

Beard Trimmer

Hate how dads always turn up on social occasions with an unkempt stubble? Bombay Shaving Company has you covered with their Power Play Beard Trimmer. This comes with four comb attachments to suit every beard look, and takes just 90 minutes to charge, so that dad can never complain about running out of power! Priced at Rs 899.

French Press

Are your parents the coffee aficionados who spend long amounts of time brewing the perfect cuppa? Then, get them excited with this 350 ML French Press Coffee Maker from Coffeeza. Easy to clean, with a high-quality filtration system and water level markings, this gift is sure to feel like a warm hug in this upcoming winter. Priced at Rs 1,995.

Kindle e-reader 

If your parents are bookworms, there cannot be a better gift than Amazon’s Kindle e-reader. The 2022 edition, which is available on Amazon for Rs 9,999. The device is super-light and compact, making it easy everywhere. With 16GB of storage, they can literally carry thousands of books with them. The glare-free display, with its adjustable front light keeps it easy on the eyes, while allowing your folks to read till late in the night.

Portable speaker

Is music the unifier in your home? Does a Jagjit Singh ghazal bring out a uniquely romantic side to them, or are they ones who groove to The Beatles at parties? This Christmas, give them the gift of music, with the BOSE SoundLink Revolve+ II, available at Croma for Rs 29,400. Portable and easy to carry, this device also supports both Google Assistant and Siri, allowing your parents to drum out requests without needing their phones. The 17-hour battery life ensures that the mood will never be off!


If music creates the mood, whisky creates the mehfil. Raise a toast to family and fun with Indri’s Single Malt Indian Whisky, ranked as one of the best whiskies in the world! While you don’t need a reason to celebrate, Christmas sounds like the perfect occasion to share a drink with your parents, and reminisce about the days when they played Santa for you! The 750ml bottle costs Rs 3,940 on Spencer’s.

Hot Chocolate

Christmas and a large, steaming mug of hot chocolate go hand-in-hand. Gift your parents some sugary goodness with 200g of Country Bean’s Classic Hot Chocolate, priced at Rs 499. Not only is this option gluten-free, but also has 60% less sugar than other brands, making it a mindful choice for your parents’ health.
