  • I bought my mom a new purse (hopefully she doesn't hate it because it's a little different than what she usually carries) and I bought her dish cloths and wash cloths because that's what she said she needed!

    I bought my dad a pair of jeans and button-up shirt I figured he could wear while fishing. There was something else, but I can't remember what it is since I've already wrapped it all up. lol.

  • Nothing. My mother doesn't do Christmas & My father isn't worth the energy.

  • My mom a necklace and shirt, and dad a book and a puzzle. And then maybe a food gift card together.

  • Oh and I'm also making them a 2011 calendar at walmart.com with photos of my husband, our daughter and I for each month. We live 8 hours away from them in a different state and I'm going to write down all the dates we're coming for a visit so they have something to look forward to. That'll be their gift together.

  • My sis and I are splitting the cost of our mom's ticket to see the Nutcracker next weekend, and I plan to get her a dvd that she wanted. I am giving my dad a gift card to Gander Mountain- and both parents will be getting school pictures (8x10) of the grandchildren.
