For the book lover … an e-book giftcard allows you town downloads of books or magazine subscriptions on your electronic device
For the fashionista … tickets to a fashion show or a style makeover
For the sports fan … tickets to a favorite team’s event are always a good choice, but what about their favorite football fare or treats in the team colors
For the foodie … consider tickets for a culinary tour, cooking classes or shares in a Community Supported Agriculture, that offer locally grown products direct from the farm
For teens … movie tickets, fast-food or gas gift cards, candles, chocolate or cash
For the busy Mom … spa gift certificates, babysitting, organizing help, a cleaning service, home made meals
For the boss … a visit from holiday carolers, homemade treats, gourmet coffee.
For kids … Choose activities they will love such as mini golf, water parks, ice skating rinks, sledding, or amusement parks. Check into a hotel with a pool, or provide the family with a zoo membership.
For the car lover … Car wash packages are great, but for the adventurous with a bigger budget consider racing experiences or events
For the crafty … what could be better than a class? Check out stores like Paper Source, Michael’s or community centers for options. Get photos out the box and create a beautiful book for a loved one.
For the gardener … choose beautiful bulbs that blossom in winter, heirloom vegetable and flower seeds and plants, an herbal windowsill garden
For the health conscious … try a tea of the month club, health club membership, exercise class or outdoor adventure. Fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms and gift certificates for certified organic restaurants can also make great gifts.
For the intellectual … consider a museum membership, fine wine, or a scotch of the month club
For the traveler … Stuffbak labels make it easy for you lost mobile devices to find their way back to you. Airline gift cards or a one-day pass for an airport lounge are sure to be appreciated.
Creative packaging makes gift cards more fun and exciting to open. A choxcard is a gift card holder and chocolate bar in one. Keep them guessing by hiding the gift card in a related book or package it along with a related product. Thoughtful gift givers take the time to find gifts that will be meaningful and appreciated. Instead of packing more stuff into our homes, let’s pack some more enjoyment into life.
