Thanksgiving is over, and that means that the holiday season is finally here (unless you’re like me and say it’s “the holidays” as soon as Halloween ends). It’s time to break out the gift list for your friends and loved ones, and start shopping. If you’re in a long-term relationship, then that gift list should probably include your significant other’s parents too. It can feel a little awkward to buy or make something for your “in-laws,” but including them in your Christmas shopping can get you major points with your sweetheart and their parents. As a girl who has been through many holiday seasons with her boyfriend, let me share with you some awesome gift ideas for your boyfriend’s parents.

1. For the chefs
If your love’s parents love to cook, then gifting them a cool new kitchen item is a great choice. Just to make it extra fancy, why not personalize it? For less than $25, you could get a custom engraved cutting board with their name on it. Bonus - there are tons of engraving and style options so you can find the one that’s just right.
2. For the coffee drinkers
If your boyfriend’s parents are coffee fanatics, then you can use that to your advantage when looking for a Christmas gift. An adorable and functional gift idea is a set of his and hers travel mugs. Amazon has an extensive list of mugs with different styles, colors, and sizes. This cute and thoughtful gift will definitely win you some points with the parents.
3. For the entertainers
If their parents are the people who love to throw dinner parties and host events, then an entertainment-related gift is a great option. Wine is always a big hit at dinner parties, so a set of wine glasses would make a fine choice for a Christmas gift. To make it extra special, why not monogram the glasses? Personalized wine glasses will definitely be a favorite at their next soiree.
4. For the parents who seem to have it all
If you’re having a hard time figuring what your sweetie’s parents would like or need, you could get them a gift that seems to have a little bit of everything. You can never go wrong with a gift basket. Do a little digging and find out their favorite treats. No time? Nearly everyone likes chocolate. Treat them to something sweet with one of these chocolate-themed gift baskets on Amazon!
