Since time, money, and patience aren’t necessarily gift-able, we looked around and picked out the best gifts for parents you can wrap up and put a bow on for the moms and dads on your list this Christmas. Whether they’re new parents or empty-nesters, kitchens pros or beginner cooks, wine experts or a novice home brewer, we got it. For the on-the-go parents, a Fitbit shows you care, and helps them track their health in a sleek, tech-based way. For aspiring brew experts, a DIY home-brew kit lets them explore the world of beer making. (And a Shine Craft Vessel lets them pack it up and bring over to your place to share—how convenient.) We’ve also got beauty for him and her—parents need pampering too! A Kiehl’s skincare essentials kit feels luxe and comes in a festive bag, and the Art of Shaving sandalwood kit will keep Dad’s scruff in check. More of our favorites:
