Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner. While the holiday season may be a time of happiness and cheer, for most gift-givers, they also instill feelings of panic and can make you overwhelmed. It makes you question—how exactly does Santa do it?
Picking out the best gift for your loved one doesn’t require rocket science; all you need are a few quick tips that will help you choose between multiple gift options. Here are some questions to keep in mind when deciding between gifts for everyone on your list.
Does your gift solve a problem?
If you’re super stumped on a specific gift to give someone, ask yourself this one question: what problem does the recipient need to solve? Some of the best unforgettable Christmas gifts are those that solve a problem and make a person’s life that much easier.
For example, is your gift recipient bored and needs to pick up a hobby? If so, try out a DIY art kit. Are they a bad cook, or do they dread making dinner every night? Fun kitchen appliances or meal kit subscriptions can easily solve this issue. Are there little annoyances in their home? Look into getting blackout curtains, a sound machine, a knife sharpener, or a cold brew coffee maker to help make little changes in their daily life.
Do they like the good things in life?
Want to really go all out this holiday season? Consider gifting something luxurious and extravagant, like a Rolex watch. A Rolex goes with every outfit and can be handed down to future generations as a family heirloom, so it’s worth the investment! The best part is that you can get the timepiece in a variety of colors such as stainless steel, white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, with a silver or black dial, depending on the recipient’s style. A Rolex will never go out of fashion, and it will for sure be the most unforgettable Christmas gift of all time. Their new Rolex will be their favorite piece of jewelry to show off for years to come.
Does their home need a little bit of pizazz?
We’re all stuck at home staring at our blank walls, so why not get your loved one something fun to jazz up their boring interior design? It doesn’t have to be a plain old framed picture—why not choose an original option and go with a canvas wall art? Canvas art is a great idea for both first-time homeowners and those who are just looking to spruce up their space. Canvas art is completely customizable, and it adds a pop to any tired decor. You can even invest in some wall art that has pictures of you and your loved one from the past year, and make canvas print to make them smile when they think of the good times you’ve had together.
Do they have everything they may want?
When you ask someone what they want for Christmas, you may be told that ” Oh, I have everything I need.” Bypass this by gifting them you and your time! While it may be hard to spend some quality time together during our current quarantine, you can take this time to be creative. You can plan a virtual movie night where you order food to their home, and you watch the same movie over Zoom. You can also gift them with a virtual class that you can take together. With everyone being so creative lately, there are plenty of options to choose from.
Do they tend to give more to others than they give to themselves?
If this is the case, give them something they may really, really want but would never buy for themselves. For example, you could gift them a massage gift certificate, an outfit you hand-picked for them, or something completely ridiculous and silly! As long as the gift comes from the heart, your recipient will be sure to love it.
