Default Suggestions for a Mother's Day (and Father's Day Gift)

I admit. I don't always remember the exact day of my parent's birthdays so I'm hoping to make it up to my parents with Mother's and Father's Day. Does anybody know of a good website (and item) which I can get for my parents? Nothing too expensive. I'm still in college.

My mother is devoted to Our Lady and chose Mary as her confirmation name.

I'm not sure what to get my father. He has a PhD in physics so I would call him an intellectual. He doesn't have a long attention span for literature or biographies except when it's in movie-format. His saint is St. Anthony and I think he has a special place in his heart for Franciscans. My father has great interest in Marian apparitions but they also include unapproved apparitions.

My father is not perfectly catechized. Up until now, he thought that missing Sunday Mass couldn't possibly be a mortal sin. He has been a Catholic for 30+ years and thinks he has all the basics covered. I don't want to find something that would make him go, "Are you kidding me? I know this stuff like the back of my hand!"

I gave him a copy of 'Salt of the Earth', the interview between Pope Benedict (then, Cardinal Ratzinger) and Peter Seewald. He said that it was interesting but it was too hard to read.

Is there anything informative and possibly easier to read than that?

Pope John Paul I and Pope Benedict XVI
