There’s really nothing parents love more than family photos. What if they could take them and print them instantly? Every parent’s dream come true. Hook your parents up with an Instax. Or get fancy and frame a sentimental photo in a gorgeous picture frame. You can even get creative with a photo collage. Both are fun and easy ideas when it comes to gifts for parents.

If you want to make it extra special, book a special photoshoot with your siblings and/or extended family members. “I’ve always wanted my kids to get professional pictures taken for a gift,” said Darcey Spensley. “We haven’t had them done since everyone was younger and it would be so special to have them done when you’re all grown up.”

Prepare to hear your parents say, “Awww–you are the sweetest!”
