    Mom: loves kitchen stuff. I got her a nice set of non stick pans, some plastic storage containers and some small OXO gadgets. I also got her some nice perfume.
    Dad: electronics geek. He received an Apple TV which he uses to watch shows from the laptop on their home TV.
    Brother and SIL: got them a nice set of knives and some pans as they are setting up a new home. Some small cosmetics for SIL too.
    MY husband and I can't think of anything we need, so we usually don't buy for each other.

    Your intentions of gifting is good. But beware of what the people who get it do.
    Some create drama and brainwashing others about it. If they are the fault finding and negative people they will complain and question your intention even if you give the moon and stars to them.

    those are nice suggestions... my mom too loves kitchen stuff but i want to give her something personal things she can use it for herself instead of being kitchen items.

    dad only listens to indian news.. cant think of anything else for him..
