Do either of your parents like to color? I know my brother and sister in law both do! If so, these Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils look like an amazing addition to any coloring book. You can get them here for $27.99 - this is the 48-count pack.
Bullet Journals and planners are really popular these days. Are one of your parents a fan, or do you think they'd enjoy getting into it? How about getting these Micro-Line Ultra-Fine Point Ink Pens (16 set). I'd love these for my own planner! You can get this set for $19.99!
Did your parents have a Polaroid camera when they were younger? How about getting them a Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 8 Instant Camera for $59.95. It's a bit more pricey, but it could be a gift for both parents to use or you could go in with a sibling and split the cost! This is the blue camera, but you can get the white camera, the pink camera, or the black camera.
