The holidays are not only about receiving, but giving as well! Getting your loved one that one item that they have had their eye on and watching them unwrap it is a rewarding feeling! The smile that stretches across their face creates great memories! But sometimes, it is rather difficult to figure out what exactly to get that certain someone. If you are searching for gift ideas, look no further! Here are some fun holiday gifts to give this season!
Buying someone clothes can be tricky because everyone has different sizes and styles but you can never go wrong with buying something cute or funny such as one size fits all adult onesies, knitted scarfs, bath robes, etc.– these all make for some great gifts that you don’t need a specific size for! Fuzzy socks are another popular suggestion! You can never go wrong with fuzzy socks– they’re super cozy and let’s face it, you can never have too many socks! I think we can all relate to putting on a load of laundry and coming out with only one sock of the pair so the more socks, the merrier!
2. Television/ Movie themed gifts!
Is there a television show or movie that the person you are gift hunting for loves? If so, try to base your gift that! Depending on the show, it should be a relatively easy task to find merchandise with something like their favorite character or quote on it! For example, if they love the Harry Potter series, there are numerous of sweaters, hats, socks, etc., that you can find with spells on it or buy them a wand so they can imagine themselves in the wizarding world they love! Duplicates of the props found in the show/movie are also a really fun gift! If they love NBC’s The Office, you can get them something such as a Dundie award! The Dundie awards were given out by Michael Scott to each of the people in his office. You could get it customized to say something like “Best Brother!” or “Favorite Co-Worker!” Creativity is key. Find something that that is unique and fun! Etsy is a great website to find these types of items!
3. You can’t go wrong with Gift Cards
Let’s face it. Gift cards are most likely the easiest gift to give. Not only is it small and easy to wrap, but it gives the receiver the opportunity to buy what they want with it. As mentioned before, shopping for someone is sometimes challenging especially when it comes to clothes. A giftcard to Target, TJ Maxx, Old Navy, etc., is never under appreciated! Gift cards to restaurants, gas stations, movie theaters, etc., all make amazing gifts!
4. Tickets to a live event!
Tickets tend to make a popular gifts as well! If they have a favorite band/ artist/ comedian that is going on tour, tickets to see them live would make the ultimate gift! If you are giving to a sports fan, buy them tickets to a game! Going to a game live compared to watching it on TV is a whole different experience that they are sure to appreciate! Do they love musicals? Broadway shows? Buy them tickets to see a show! It does not have to be in New York City– most major cities around the country have productions! This is a fun night out on the town that gives you a reason to dress up!
5. A picture is worth 1000 words
Pictures can be sentimental. Looking back at the good old days and bringing yourself back to that day and thinking about the memories that were made is a special feeling. There are many stores, online and offline, that can print pictures on any surface you would like so these memories do not just have to exist in a flipbook of photos. If you are trying to find the perfect gift for your mom, dad, grandfather, or grandmother– print pictures of their children/grandchildren on a large canvas to hang in her living room or a soft blanket they can snuggle with each night! If the person you are giving to went on a fun vacation with you, create a scrapbook for them to cherish forever! As said before, creativity is key but no matter what the gift is, it is sure to touch someone’s heart!
Overall, giving is even better than receiving! It’s not about the how much you spend, it’s always the thought that counts. No matter what you give someone, it will be special to them because it came from you!
