Good vacation for seniors or other gifts
I am getting a very sizable bonus this year and besides paying off car loans and paying down the mortgage a bit, we wanted to treat our parents with some of it. We already offered to give them the money to spend on whatever they wanted and both set of parents refused to take a check so that's out. We think they will accept an expensive gift for birthdays/anniversary and thinking about what to get them. We are thinking to pre-pay for a luxury vacation (something they won't splurge on themselves) but don't know where to and are also thinking about something else that is more tangible. We are going to get them all new phones (with the excuse that we want them to have the latest model so they can take high quality pictures of our kids when they watch them, which they do regularly), but not sure what else we can buy them. Both sets of parents are in their late 60s/early 70s, active, and are doing ok financially so they don't need the basics but have limited means in terms of retirement savings/income so do not splurge on themselves and we would like to treat them. What would you have gotten your parents or, if you are parent of adult kids, what would you have liked to receive?
