The older you get, the more you appreciate your parents. And once you become one yourself, you come crawling back to them, taking back every eye roll or broken curfew. This year, instead of giving separate Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts (because let’s be honest, how many more lotions or golf-themed paperweights do they need?) try giving a combined gift that’s family-centric and full of meaning. We’re talking family tees here, the perfect visual for a growing family. Look to these suggestions for family tree-themed gifts that range from sentimental to, dare we say, hip.
A personalized family tree-themed piece of wall art is always classic and thoughtful. This peacock-themed genealogy chart displays up to six generations of names in a handsome peacock tail-esque design. It’s sure to make them proud as a—well, you know. This fall-themed canvas art captures falling leaves, naming each one for a family member, up to 18 names. Finally, this deconstructed piece has a mod graphic design to it, echoing both tree rings and a sort of pie chart at the same time.
Combine the symbolism of a family tree with faces of their actual beloved progeny, and you can do no wrong. This oversized metal sculpture makes a beautiful display on a mantle or tabletop, and pictures can be secured on each branch or in the included picture frames. This photo cube showcases heart-shaped leaves with personalized names, and each of the four sides of the cube leave space for a picture. If it’s high time you print all those pictures you’ve been promising them, create an entire album with this wooden family tree album.
Looking for something a little more subtle? This wire sculpture boasts leaves made of birthstones for the whole family. A decorative platter tells everyone that the family roots run deep while a shadowbox frame has a subtle decorative tree design to hold pictures, or better yet, handwritten notes from the kids.
