something personal that shows you put some thought into what they like/are interested in, or something quirky. It does not have to be expensive.

I don’t think it really matters how wealthy they are. The whole point of a gift is that it comes from you and that’s why it should bear a special meaning and I’m sure they’ll appreciate whatever you give them. Having said that, I’d say get them a new sports car.

kids don't have access to that amount of cash (in this particular hypothetical situation)

Something they will enjoy like a voucher for afternoon tea or a nice vase or Chrismas table decoration

Know your parents! If my DD bought me any of these I would be somewhat disappointed I would, of course, smile and say lovely things but inside I would be wondering who she had confused me with.

Its not really about financially value anyway, I got my mum a custom made painting of a pet once. Still think this means more to her then when i bought her a bottle of her favourite Channel number (despite that being more usable & expensive).

Maybe something meaningful / has memories attached to it? No matter how wealthy they are, they will have emotion and will appreciate the sentiment. Their happiness with your present will most likely be measure by how much effort you put into it! :yep:

A spa day is a lovely gift - but pricey for some but a good chance for a bit of bonding

Maybe the gift of time more than anything else, showing you care. You could as an example make a voucher up of a menu that they would love and that they can redeem with you for you to prepare, cook, serve and clear up for them on a date you all agree as mutually convenient. If you're clever with the menu you should be able to prepare starter & dessert before and so really only have to cook the main course.

What about if the afternoon tea included a glass of champagne, interested now?
