Give the Perfect Gift for your Parents

Wondering what to get your parents for a special event like an anniversary? What you buy them will depend on the occasion, as well as their tastes and preferences. Parents gift ideas are also a charming way to simply say ‘thank you for being there’ when they’ve helped you out. Whether it’s babysitting the grandchildren or helping you move into your new home, we all owe our parents a present or two occasionally.

At Mall of the Emirates and across the region at Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls, you’ll find some wonderful ideas for gifts to give mum and dad, from the simple to the extravagant. And don’t forget to pop into Hallmark for a special card to complete your gift. See some of the most popular gift ideas for parents for inspiration.

Phones and Tablets

Never underestimate the older generation’s love for Technology. There are plenty of silver surfers out there who enjoy using smartphones and tablets as much as the younger generation. If they’re interested in Technology, head for the Apple Store in Mall of the Emirates for the latest Apple products or see the full list of electronics stores available.

Home Décor

We all love a happy home, so why not buy something special for mum and dad from one of the elegant home interior stores? Go for stylish, modern accessories from Chattels & More at the Mall of the Emirates, or if you’re shopping on a budget, head to Lifestyle at Centrepoint across many City Centres for bright, colourful cushions and accessories.

If they’re book lovers then you can never go wrong with a copy of the latest best-seller or a book about their hobby or passion. Add to their collection with the latest titles on offer at Borders at City Centre Deira. Alternatively, why not pick up a stylish bookcase for them to keep their collection in pristine condition? We love the genuinely stunning Catania bookcase from Marina Exotic Home Interiors at the Mall of the Emirates.
