For the parents:

My “safe” gifts for parents – especially if it is for both of them together – generally revolve around food hampers (whether you buy one or make your own), getting them a date night (movie tickets and possibly a dinner voucher, or perhaps a DVD and bottle of wine/sparkling grape?). Other nice gifts are cheeseboards and servingware for more social families – or a good board game! Since my husbands family is rather large and generally like communal games anyway, we are starting a tradition of buying one board game each year to slowly add to the family’s stash!

For children:

For kids gifts I always try to think of re-playability as well as the annoyance factor (ie: nothing with sirens!).

Lego is always a good gift (so long as they are old enough) and it means each year you can just give them an expansion set. Easy as!

Matchbox cars are great, especially for siblings who love to race! One of these was my most treasured possession as an 8 year old girl :P
