The holidays are fast approaching, and we have started to think about the gifts we hope to give. If we want to give gifts that will be remembered, we need to make sure we don’t fall into the last-minute buying trap. This is especially important this year where many businesses are experiencing shipping delays. When choosing the best possible gifts, it is important that we work hard to impress everyone on our lists. This year more than ever is the time to celebrate getting through another rotation around the sun. If there has ever been a go big or go home moment for gifts, this is the year.
When picking gifts for our loved ones, decadence is often the way to go. This year it makes sense to pull out all the stoppers and go big when it comes to giving gifts. When it comes to choosing something for those we care about, gourmet chocolate gifts are always a safe bet. Very few of us don’t appreciate luscious premium chocolate gift baskets, boxes, and sets. There is something about rich chocolate that makes us feel great from head to toe. Chocolate, especially dark chocolate is also known for its health benefits so our loved one can eat that extra piece guilt free. Giving a decadent chocolate treat is always appreciated.
A Little Bit Of Bubbly
Another classic gift includes various alcoholic drinks. It does not matter if it is champagne, premium organic vodka, or a rich whisky or bourbon, alcohol is a great way to turn any event into a celebration. When choosing alcohol, it is important to personalize our gifts, because each person has different alcohol likes and dislikes. In the case of individuals who do not drink, there are a wide range of mocktails that we can give instead. Mocktails can often give cocktails a run for their money in terms of quality and enjoyment. Both bottles of alcohol and mocktail kits are treats that loved ones can savor throughout the holidays and therefore make great gifts.
The Gift That Keeps Giving
Another great gifting option is to give a gift that keeps giving. While we might think of cheese or wine subscriptions there are a wide range of subscriptions that are available to give to others. We might give an Italian antipasto basket gift set, a meat based monthly subscription, a caviar gift set, or even a hot sauce subscription. In addition to food and drink-based subscriptions there are subscriptions focused on specialized passions. Some examples include subscriptions for self-care items, for singles, for book lovers, or for those whose pets are the center of their world. We can always find a subscription for every person on our list.
Creating Amazing Experiences
Sometimes we have individuals on our gift giving list who really do not want physical gifts, no matter how fancy they are. For these individuals we will find that giving the gift of an experience is the way to go. Gifting experiences might look like tickets to a concert, a sports event, a wine tour, or time at a resort in a tropical location. Gifting experiences can also include interactive experiences such as backstage opportunities to speak to actors, singers, or sport players. Allowing someone we love to be able to meet and greet a celebrity they love will make a lasting impression that they will not soon forget. No matter what our loved ones enjoy there is a way to create an experience that they will always remember.
When we are choosing gifts there is a wide range of items, we can choose from to create a showstopper holiday. We might go with decadent treats, a little bubbly, a gift box or subscription or tickets to an event that our loved ones will always remember fondly. In the end we are only limited by our own gift giving imaginations. So, this holiday season we need to think big and boldly. We have all been through a lot over the past year so we should spurge and buy that gift we have always dreamed about giving. Our loved ones are sure to appreciate our generosity and kindness and will love to know exactly how much we love them.
