While you have plenty of time till Christmas, you can never be too cautious during this season, and it’s always better to buy your gift early rather than later.
Whether you’re buying gifts for Christmas, birthdays, or anniversaries, it can be tough to find the perfect one. Try using my list of gift buying ideas below to make your choices easier and more convenient, especially during these trying times.
Gift Buying Ideas
The following gift buying ideas work well for any occasion, any price point, and any person. You just have to consider what the receiver’s preferences might be.
· Virtual Gifts
Let’s face it, the pandemic has put a halt on many things, but it has also given birth to some exciting virtual events, classes, and sessions that are perfect for gift giving. The best part is that you provide a thoughtful gift without ever getting into a busy cashier line or having to wrap and deliver it timely.
Moreover, your options are endless. From virtual cooking classes to fitness sessions, massage lessons, dance classes, beauty courses, educational memberships, concerts, and even virtual wine tasting, there is nothing that’s not happening online these days.
Most of these virtual sessions can be bought and gifted to your loved ones. Whether you want to give a membership, course, or single session, you can find something to fit any budget. Just find one that’s right for your loved one.
We personally recommend the cameo app that lets you send them personalized messages from their favorite celebrity. Their star-struck reactions are priceless.
· E-Gift Cards
We know what you’re thinking; gift cards are so thoughtless and lame, but hear us out. E-gift cards are not the same, and they do not have to be lame or inappropriate. On the contrary, your gamer grandson would love a game pass, and your fashionista sister will appreciate one from her favorite brand.
Once again, your options here are limitless and can fit any budget. There’s something for everyone, from clothing to fitness, beauty, food, books, gaming, TV, and even travel experiences.
· Subscription Boxes
If you think E-gift cards seem a bit impersonal, subscription boxes are just the right thing that fit at that sweet spot of thoughtful and nifty. Giving one is as easy and convenient as an E-gift card, but they are plenty thoughtful because you can pick one themed according to the receiver’s preference.
You will, however, have to search for one that isn’t filled with useless items, and decent ones typically cross that $30 mark. So this one might require relatively more research and money than the previously mentioned ideas.
However, if you take the time, there are some great subscription boxes out there. Standard options include (but are not limited to) beauty, clothing, books, travel, food, maternity, music, and much more.
There are also many unusual ones like trial-size fragrances and colognes, sleeper rentals for sleepless parents, cultural items, therapeutic stuff, detox boxes, and even socks subscription boxes.
Gift buying should be easy, convenient, and pocket-friendly for everyone. What’s most important is the care given to selecting the gift. The mentioned gift buying ideas are great for any occasion or person and can easily fit any budget from modest to extravagant.
You can easily find the perfect one with a bit of research, especially now that the gift-giving season is upon us.
