Use This Chic, Yet Affordable Holiday Gift Guide to Shop for Mom and Dad

Chances are, mom and dad are well-aware of what you want for the holidays.

From a slew of fresh makeup products, to toys galore, it's likely you aren't skipping a beat when it comes to asking your parents for all the hottest items on the market.

But on the flipside, you should probably be thinking about what to get them as well. Don't get us wrong—we love a good DIY project, but we also think it may not hurt to shell out a few extra dollars from that allowance savings and buy them a classy household touch.

We know budgets are slim, so scroll below to find the most chic, yet affordable, popular home holiday items either parent can appreciate:
