Holiday gifts to match the jolly season
December 23, 2020
With the holiday season rapidly approaching, gifts are on everybody’s minds. From gift cards and clothes, to cooking supplies and electronics, stores offer it all. The overwhelming pace of the holidays makes everyone wonder the same things, “What should I get?” and “Will they like my gift?” Below are five great gift ideas that I think your friends and family will love, enjoy, and most importantly, appreciate.
The first gift idea is something you can never go wrong with- a personalized item. Custom blankets, mugs, phone cases, and necklaces are fun presents that add a personal touch. Monograms and nameplates are very simple and elegant. By adding photo collages and individual pictures to items, you can make the gift even more meaningful. Websites like Zazzle, Redbubble, Target, Shutterfly and Walgreens offer a variety of gift options that can be customized.
Another fun gift idea is a subscription to a streaming service. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus can get expensive over time. Despite the steep price, they offer an array of entertainment options like movies, documentaries and television series. A six-month or yearly subscription to any streaming service is a unique gift that would be perfect for a friend or loved one.
The third gift idea that I recommend is a reusable water bottle or coffee cup. Reusable cups are ideal for everyday use because you can take them on the go, refill them, put different drinks in them, and help the environment. These handy cups come in various sizes, colors, and styles.
Electronics and electronic accessories can also make wonderful presents. Phone chargers and cases make perfect stocking stuffers. Gift cards to the Apple store or iTunes offer flexibility because the recipient can choose the items, music, apps, and storage options they wish to purchase.
Finally, think about giving a gift that helps the recipient unwind after a busy day of holiday activities. Robes, scented candles, soaps and lotions are simple gifts that provide relaxation. The aroma and flickering flame of a scented candle can make a room feel serene and peaceful. Bath and Body Works, Lush, Amazon, and Etsy have great collections and gift sets that can transform a room or help you pamper yourself.
Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be stressful. I hope these suggestions and recommendations ease your anxiety so you can truly enjoy the holiday season.
