If they like wine, a nice bottle of wine.

If they drink liquor, a nice bottle of whatever they like the best.

If they are dry, you’re on your own :)

what if they drink bud heavy? i cant really show up to christmas with a 12 pack…. lol

I was hoping that if they drank beer they also had a liquor preference. Because a nice beer can be a good gift, but I was guessing from your description that they weren’t beer snobs.

You can always go safe and send them a huge poinsettia, a gift basket, something like that.

yeah a poinsettia sounds good.
maybe a small Santa figure?

Or some nice ornaments. Get the Hallmark 2008 ones?

get them an audio Bible or a dvd Bible
one of the best audio Bibles are “The Bible Experience” TNIV version with beautiful background sounds and character voices.
Or get a Bible on DVD KJV version “The Voice of The Bible” narrated by Alexander Scourby.

Almost anything from here would work.
This is my ‘go to’ place when I don’t know someone well enough or I just can’t come up with anything. The pears are awesome!

Conservative, huh? They Republican? Get them an Obama mug. Just to see their reactions.

Seriously, though… You can’t go wrong with some good food. Wine, steak, chocolate, lobster, whatever. A pointsetta is good, too. Basically, get something that, if they don’t like it, it will be gone within a couple of months anyhow.

Alternatively, if you know (or your future spouse knows) what they’re lacking around the house, then buying that for them could be considered a lifesaver. Do they need/want a waffle maker? Go with that! Is their coffee machine broken?

Go with the practical items. That way you’re not contributing to the tackiness.

Bake something!
Or take flowers – the poinsettias are a good idea.
Once my boyfriend took some spices & marinades to my dad & he loved it! Maybe something like that for the pops & a cooking something or another for the mom? You can’t go wrong with that or a nice candle, lotion set, etc.
