Christmas might be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also easily be the most stressful. Dealing with the crazy December traffic, jostling with crowds everywhere you go, hopping from one party to another, and trying to politely answer your nosy relatives’ questions can take a toll on anyone. Add to that the stress of finding the perfect presents for those nearest and dearest to you, and you’ve got a holiday headache waiting to happen.
As much, as we’d like to help make your Christmas experience easier, we’re sorry to say that we have no control over the traffic situation, nor can we ask your aunt to stop badgering you about when you’ll have kids. We can, however, help your search for the right gift a bit easier. If you’re stuck in a gifting rut, here are 10 gift ideas guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Share the love this season and start shopping!
Got a loved one with a green thumb?
A small succulent in a cute pot or an indoor plant that’s easy to care for will make them smile.
2. Handmade coupons
Print out a bunch of coupons for things or activities you can grant when your loved ones cash them in. They don’t have to be expensive–your coupons can allow the recipient to avail from you simple joys like a 30-second hug or a favorite cocktail.
3. Baked goods
Homebaked cookies, baked with love, will always be a hit.
4. A fruit basket
They’re always a good addition to the recipient’s pantry.
5. A Nixplay Frame
6. A Spotify or Netflix gift card
Let them enjoy some music (or their favorite guilty pleasure TV series).
A fail-safe gift for your party’s host (As long as they’re of legal age).
8. A gift card for a spa visit
A manicure or a massage at a great spa will always be appreciated.
9. A staycation
It’ll be a well-deserved break from the holiday madness.
10. A subscription to their favorite magazine
