Which one should I get?

For Christmas I'm thinking about either getting my parents a movie and dinner gift card or having my 2 1/2 paint a canvas for them. Or getting my mom a vase of flowers me and my son pick out together and my dad something else.

  • Flowers are nice, but don't last long. Dinner and a movie would be nice but might be something they could to anyway. As a grandmother, I would be delighted with a painting by one of my grandchildren! If it were me, I would rate the painting first, dinner and a movie second and flowers last.

  • I think the painting is an awesome idea! I think you just gave me an idea for my Inlaws. They will be here to visit on the 30th and I think that would be a great gift from our boys for them to take home...

  • Dinner and a movie, but save the painting one for another occasion, It was a really good idea.

  • The movie and dinner idea are good, but I bet you money they'd much rather have something your toddler did for them. Out of all the gifts you listed, I think the canvas painting would bring tears to their eyes. They'll treasure it more than any other gift you could give them.

  • I am making a free calendar for my mom and dad, it's just going to cost the shipping. You can use your own photos and have them printed, I am not sure how long the promotion is going on for.
