Top La-Z-Boy Gift Ideas for your Loved Ones: Shop for your Kids, Spouse, & or Parents

Furniture is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Especially La-Z-Boy furniture!


La-Z-Boy furniture is not only stylish but it is also designed and quality-constructed to provide sustained comfort for years to come. After all, there is no better gift than the gift of comfort.


No matter the occasion, you can’t go wrong by gifting La-Z-Boy. 


With this, shopping for another person is never easy! You may need some gifting inspiration to get you started. 


Magaly del Castillo is the talented in-house interior designer at the local La-Z-Boy Cyrville. With over 20 years of experience, Magaly has a passion for helping clients find exactly what they are looking for. 


Based on expert advice from Magaly, this article will provide you with several thoughtful gift ideas from La-Z-Boy. Whether you are gifting your mature children, spouse, or elderly parents, the product suggestions in this article will not disappoint!


Gifts for a Young Adult


As your children mature and flee the nest, giving the gift of furniture can be a thoughtful way of helping them venture into the world on their own. 


After all, furnishing your first apartment can be a very expensive investment.


Whether you are looking for a milestone birthday gift or a congratulatory graduation gift, furniture can be the perfect way to show your son or daughter how proud you are. 


Given that one’s first apartment is typically small, you may consider gifting some practical and size-effective essentials.

Apartment Sized Sofas


A sofa is one of the most essential, yet expensive, pieces of furniture. A great way to show your support as a parent is to start them off with their first sofa, and a nice one at that! 


With this, you will want to look for smaller sofas that are designed to fit apartment spaces. These sofas also work well in Suburban apartments for parents and older family members (more on them later).


The Kennedy Sofa


The Kennedy Apartment Sized Sofa is a great starter sofa for a young adult! It is sleek yet casual and is designed to fit apartments and other small spaces. 


As your son or daughter finds their own interior design style, the classic and understated style of the Kennedy will allow them to get creative with accent pillows and other surrounding decors. Not to mention, Kennedy is customizable with hundreds of colours and fabrics to choose from. 


If your son or daughter enjoys having guests over, but do not have space for a guest room, you may consider upgrading their gift from the Kennedy Apartment Sized Sofa to the Kennedy Full Sleep Sofa.


While remaining small and compact in its original design, the Kennedy sleep sofa has the ability to transform into a full-sized bed.

Gift Ideas

Storage & Multipurpose Furniture


As your son or daughter attempts to furnish their first small apartment, they may struggle to find storage space. 


If you plan on gifting furniture, you may consider multipurpose furniture that doubles as storage space. 


The Leo Ottoman


The Leo Ottoman is the best way to gift comfort, function, & style. This ottoman offers ample storage space with a reversible top. One-side has tufted padding providing additional seating, while the other side converts to a wooden cocktail table. 


Any maturing adult would love the Leo Ottoman, in fact, it is one of the 5 Best Selling Ottomans at La-Z-Boy.

Gifts for a Spouse


There are many reasons to show your love and appreciation by gifting a spouse. Whether it be Christmas, their birthday, or a special anniversary, giving the gift of La-Z-Boy furniture is a great way to say “I love you”. 


Gifting your Husband


After a long week on their feet, men love something that they can kick up their feet and recline back in! 


Perhaps your husband works long hours at a desk and is on his feet all day working a trade. He may even be a very hands-on and active parent. 


Show your appreciation by gifting him a comfortable piece of furniture to relax and unwind in at the end of a long day.

The Astor Recliner


When it comes to gifting a husband, a comfortable recliner might be one of the most obvious choices. In fact, he may already have a recliner on his wish list, as most men do. 


The Astor Recliner is one of the 5 Best Selling Recliners at La-Z-Boy. With deep seats, a wide structure, and a taller base, the Astor is often referred to as the “Big Boy”. This model is ideal for tall men who are 6’3” and up. 


Not only is this recliner a great choice for taller individuals, but it is roomy enough to share the seat with a furry friend. If your husband is a dog or cat lover, he may enjoy spending some extra time with the family pet in his comfy new recliner.


Depending on your husband’s preferences, the Astor is customizable in fabrics and leather, with several additional options for upgrades. If you really want to wow your husband, you may consider upgrading the Astor Recliner to include heat and massage!

Gift Ideas

The James Sectional


Another great way to treat your husband is by gifting him a new addition to their man cave. 


Whether it be for sprawling out on football Sundays or having friends over for poker nights, a comfortable sectional is an essential part of any man cave. 


The James Sectional is a top seller at La-Z-Boy and is especially loved by men! 


This family-friendly style is comfortable, cool, and laid back. Its casual style is perfect for the man cave with its inviting bucket seats and chaise legrests. The James also has the ability to recline providing your husband with the utmost comfort. 


Regardless of your basement design, the James sectional comes in a variety of configurations allowing it to fit perfectly into almost any space. 


In addition to options in configuration, the James is customizable in a wide variety of fabrics and leathers. While this sectional is already perfect for the man cave, make it even better by adding cup holders for ultimate comfort and convenience.

Gifting your Wife


We all know the classic saying, “happy wife, happy life”. What better way to ensure your wife’s happiness than by gifting her a comfortable piece of furniture to spend her well-deserved downtime. 


Secret Recliners


Nobody can deny the comfort of a recliner, but they are not the most appealing to the eye. 


It is likely that your wife would appreciate reclining comfort but is worried that a recliner would be an eyesore in the home that she so thoughtfully designed and decorated. 


Why not surprise her with the gift of a recliner that doesn’t look like a recliner? At La-Z-Boy, we call these Secret Recliners


You can find these stylish recliners if you shop within La-Z-Boy’s Duo Collection, or High-Leg Recliners.

Chairs for the Nursery


Perhaps your wife is a new mother. For Mother’s day, you may consider gifting her a comfortable recliner that is perfect for the nursery. 


Although the nursery is designed to be a happy place for the newborn, it is also important for it to be parent-friendly as well. A comfortable recliner is an amazing addition to a nursery as a place for your wife to nap, nurse, and enjoy special moments with your baby.

One, in particular, would be The Addison Rocking Recliner. This recliner is the ultimate nursery chair as it is built with babies and parents in mind. It’s tall back and sturdy cushions surround you in comfort and support as you gently rock the little one to sleep.


For the nursery, you may also consider gifting your wife with a chair & a half from La-Z-Boy. These chairs allow for plenty of space to snuggle up with the kids, even as they get older.


The Laurel Chair-And-a-Half is understated and laid back complimenting any decor. It offers style with its rolled arms, welt trim, and decorative wood legs, while also providing support in its ComfortCore cushioning. 


All chair styles at La-Z-Boy are customizable in your choice of fabrics and finishes. Why not uniquely customize this special gift for your wife? Consider upgrading the fabric to a performance fabric. Superior stain and fade resistance properties make these fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.

Gift for Elderly Parents


As we grow older and spread our wings in life, it is always important to take the time to show appreciation for those who made it all possible, our parents. 


If you are lucky enough to still have your parents, why not gift them with furniture that will allow them to age in comfort. 


Lift Chairs


As your parents have aged, you may notice that they find it increasingly difficult to get in and out of the seated or standing position. This is normal as one grows older, but why not give a gift that can relieve some of this difficulty. 


La-Z-Boy Lift chairs are a great option for those who require mobility assistance, specifically appreciated by the elderly. The power of the lift chair will allow your elderly parent to rest and recline back without overly exerting themselves as they lay back or get up. 


La-Z-Boy offers four series of power lift chairs: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Each series of lift recliners offers different features, including seat scale, weight capacity, clearance from a wall, and options.

Perhaps your parents are celebrating a milestone anniversary. In this case, you may consider gifting them with a piece of furniture that they can enjoy together as a couple.
