The hunt for the perfect gift for mom and dad can seem never-ending. When you want to show them you care, you search for just the right thing. You might just be searching because you don’t want to cause a scene Christmas morning by showing up empty handed. So, you start considering what kind of gift to bring. There are gifts that bring convenience to life. There are gifts that provide entertainment. There are gifts that tell your family “I get you”.
But which one will you choose?
After so many years of trying different angles you may still find yourself at a loss. You’ve done the creative, DIY, I spent hours making this just for you gift. You’ve gone the expensive route, bought the 55 inch TV. You even tried the unforgettable experience route by giving them a Groupon for that cooking class they always talked about taking.
But this year, funds are low and the search is getting harder. Plus December 25th is just around the corner! So, here is an idea that you probably hadn’t considered: personalizing a return address stamp for mom and dad.
Parents Love Personalized Address Stamps Because:
1. It’s Personal
Put your family name in ink. A personalized address stamp is commemorative and celebratory. It’s made just for them. It’s not some generic, last minute impulse buy. You can find designs that feature a single last name, like Smith. You can find options with just first names, like Jim & Carol. Customize yours with a single initial for each parent, like J & C Smith. Consider the simplicity of a monogram, JSC. You can even give a stamp with a different tone by changing it to The Smiths or The Smith Family.
2. It’s Practical
This gift isn’t merely a decoration. A return address stamp is a gift that can immediately put to good use. Mail arrives daily and we haven’t yet achieved a perfect state of paperless existence. Whether your parents are sending a card to you, paying bills, mailing tax forms or Christmas cards, their stamp is sure to get plenty of use. If your parents are entering their senior years and suffering from arthritis, writing tasks can become more difficult. With this stamp, that is one less strain to put on tired hands.
3. It’s for the Whole Family
Remember that year you got the wireless drill that was really just for dad? Or the time you got a Keurig, even though mom is the only one who drinks coffee? Some years, one parent lucks out and the other is stuck waiting until next year to get a gift they might use. Address stamps celebrate the whole family. You can bet that at some point each of your parents will need to send a letter. And both of them will be able to grab that pre-made stamp and put it in action.
There’s a sentimental side too, as the family name represents who you are and where you came from. You may not live at home anymore. You might even have a different last name. But it will always be a part of who you are.

7. Easy Wrapping
If you have a large family, then you especially will understand what an ordeal wrapping gifts can become. You know it can mean staying up until 2 am to do a last minute wrapping marathon. Ever had your bedroom practically explode in a flurry of scissors, tape, wrapping paper rolls, tissue paper, boxes, and, of course, gifts? It’s intense. And when it’s time to try and fit paper around oddly shaped boxes (like the kind so many kids’ toys come in), giant slippers, a new doggie bed or even round tin of cookies, the struggle is real. A stamp box is easy-peasy, letting you get to bed just a little earlier this year.
When Christmas day comes, your special stamp gift will be ready. Mom and dad will there expecting a fun-filled day of eating, celebrating with the family, and exchanging gifts.
