Christmas Gifts

It just seems like yesterday that you celebrated the holiday season. It’s always a great feeling spending time with your friends and family. This time of the year is made even more beautiful the twinkling lights, the decorations, the delicious spread on the menu and of course, a layer of snow makes it magical.

It almost transports us to another world, taking us back to our childhood and bringing out the kid in us. And I’m sure every child cherishes the memories of the gifts they get to unwrap during this time. The excitement of receiving a gift isn’t as pronounced in adults but it still feels good to know that your loved ones thought about you.

While getting gifts feels great, planning a gift someone involves a lot of effort. You’ve got to rack your brains to make sure the gift isn’t similar to the one you gave last year or something that everyone would think of giving.

Here’s a list that you could run through to generate gift ideas for your loved ones this holiday season.

What Do They Enjoy: This one's pretty obvious, and almost everyone would generally go for the most common or prominent thing they are buying a gift for.  This year try and dig a little deeper, and go beyond the usual things they seem to enjoy in everyone's company.

If you put in a little effort you’ll find a lot of ideas. For example, if they enjoy spy or war movies a movie DVD or a box set of tv series might be a common gift idea. What about a night patrol watch? It is a unique gift that they can proudly wear. It will serve as an addition to their war-themed memorabilia and they could literally wear their patriotism on their sleeve.

It doesn’t have to be gift wrapped: Many people aren’t too materialistic, or they already have what they want. For those select ones, an experience is something they would cherish.

Experiences are priceless. Maybe they have always wanted to see the big game live, or a Broadway show that you’ve often heard them talk about. Tickets to these events could bring a smile on their face this holiday season.

Clueless? If you’ve racked your brains enough and still can’t think of anything, the failsafe method is to ask! If you haven’t spent a lot of time around them lately, and are supposed to meet them over the holidays, ask people who are always around them. Cousins, uncles, aunts or their kids are all good choices.

With all the latest electronics gadgets and designer wear finding a gift for the millennials is relatively easy. But gifting something that stands out, and will not fade away by the next holiday season is both difficult to find and also something the receiver would have close to their hearts.
