When you’re shopping for parents or in-laws who seem to have everything they need, it can be tricky to find a good gift!  I like to get things that are sentimental, unique, or luxurious.

These are six of my very favorite things from small businesses that I love.  They each make unique, thoughtful gifts.

Personalized Family Tree from Family Tree Prints

We’ve had one of these giant family tree prints hanging in our home for the last several years and it continues to bring me so much joy every time I look at it!  Ours goes back 9 generations and my kids love to look through the names as we get to know our ancestors better.

Through Family Tree Prints you can link up your Family Search account, GEDCOM account, or enter the names manually.  You also choose your own template (I picked the Classic White) and you can customize the fonts, colors, and size of everything.  After your chart is created, you’ll get a digital PDF emailed to you.  So you will need to print on your own, but that gives you the flexibility to do it how you want!  I printed and framed my large one through Framebridge and printed the smaller one at Office Depot and stuck it in this frame.

Stamped Leather Coasters from Ox & Pine

Leather coasters that have a personal stamp are such a great accessory for a coffee table or desk.  They stand up great to moisture and are made of full grain leather.  There are 5 beautiful leather colors, and I chose the Harvest color.

I also love that everything from Ox & Pine comes in a drawstring pouch and includes a gift tag to make it even easier for you.

A Smartphone Controlled Air Freshener from Pura

Gone are the days of those old plugin air fresheners.  Pura is a smartphone controlled air freshener that can be filled with 2 scents at a time.  Right from the app on your phone, you can choose which scent to diffuse, what strength to set it at, and even create timers.  It’s next-level.

Each Pura fragrance is made from essential oils and natural scents.  They  don’t add ingredients such as Phthalates and Dichlorobenzene like most grocery store scents.  My favorites so far are Yuzu Citron and the new Capri Blue Volcano scent.  And I’ve been using the same fragrance for several weeks and it’s still over halfway full so they seem to be pretty long-lasting.

Luxurious Throw Blanket from Saranoni

If you haven’t ever felt a Saranoni blanket, you haven’t felt the softest fabric on earth.  Saranoni weaves, cuts and sews each of their blankets by hand.  And when you wrap yourself in one, you’ll get it.

This throw blanket size is perfect for cozying up on a couch or to wrap up in at night on a bed.  It makes such a great gift, because everyone needs a Saranoni in their life!

Cord Burritos from Andar

Everybody has cords that need to be organized.  That’s why I love cord burritos from Andar as a gift idea.  They’re made of high quality leather with heavy-duty snaps, and are stylish to boot!

I love giving a set of these because they come in a couple different sizes and can be used for so many purposes.

Custom Engraved Jewelry from Tom Design Shop

Last Mother’s Day I gifted my mom and mother-in-law these special necklaces from Tom Design Shop.  What makes them so special is that they are each engraved with the handwriting of their moms (my grandmas).  I had my dad and father-in-law dig up some old letters from my grandmas and was able to send a picture with my order.  Tom Design Shop printed the handwriting directly onto the necklaces and it almost brings me to tears thinking about it!

If you’ve got some loved ones that have passed on and can dig up their handwriting, a custom engraved necklace or money clip make unforgettable, special gifts for parents and in-laws.
