The holidays are coming up fast, which means the scramble is on to find the right gift for everyone on your list. But holiday shopping can be stressful! How many times have you bought something for a friend at the last minute only to find out your gift was regifted?
We all want to give our loved ones a gift they will enjoy and use. If you’re struggling to come up with ideas for the perfect gift, we have a few we think you’ll like.
Make Something Special
When you hear “handmade,” you might remember the ugly construction paper cards you used to make for your mom. Although your mom loved those cards, it’s time to up your game. Handmade items can be great gifts if you have the time to put into them. You can knit a scarf or create decorative pottery; the possibilities are endless.
Whip Up Some Homemade Goodies
If you’re an excellent cook or baker, homemade food is always a popular gift. Consider making your mom her favorite homemade cookies or sending a care package of goodies to your friends.
Adopt An Animal
For the earth conscious people on your list, adopting endangered wildlife in their name can be an unexpected, but very cool, gift. Or, if you know someone who’s been itching for a furry companion, you could adopt a pet from the local shelter for them to raise. Just make sure they’re OK with this before you show up with a new puppy.
Buy a Membership
A membership card to your local zoo, museum or activity center can be a great gift. This gives your friend a full year’s worth of fun. Plus, many memberships come with friend or buddy passes so your friend can bring along someone to enjoy it with.
Treat Them to a Day at the Spa
A full day of rest and relaxation at the spa can make a fantastic gift to pamper the people who normally won’t pamper themselves. They can use the gift at any time to prepare for a special occasion or just to lift their spirits.
Take Them Out for a Night on the Town
A gift doesn’t have to be an item. It can be an experience. Give your loved one the gift of entertainment with tickets to a play, comedy club or movie. Now he or she will have something to look forward to in the coming weeks.
Find Something Fun for Them to Do
Think outside the box and skip the traditional entertainment gift this year. Instead, find an exciting activity for your friend to try. Perhaps giving them the gift of a thrilling zip line tour would do the trick.
