Selecting a thoughtful gift for everyone in your life might be an impossible task, but it’s a good idea to put as much thought as you can into every gift you give. Thinking outside the box and mixing up your gift ideas is a great way to keep the creative juices flowing during the holiday season.
Below, Geneverse goes over a few ways to give great gifts this holiday season.
Go the Road Less Traveled
Getting creative with your gift selection will help you stand out as a gift giver. The idea is that whenever someone uses or sees the gift you gave, that person will think of you. Hopefully, the gift you give is something that the recipient both likes and uses frequently.
Giving the gift of experience is one way to set yourself apart from the rest of the noise this holiday season. You can give a young couple a weekend trip to a bed and breakfast, for instance. You can also purchase classes for someone who might be in need of a new hobby. Popular choices include yoga, martial arts, cooking, etc.
Be a Maker
It might sound cheesy, but making gifts is a great way to put that all-important personal touch into the holiday season. The gift will mean more to the person you give it to and it will certainly mean more to you since you’ve spent time and energy making the gift.
If you don’t currently make much of anything, maybe it’s a good idea to take a class – like a ceramics class, for instance. Take the class weeks in advance of the holidays and give yourself plenty of time to make something uniquely beautiful.
Staying with the ceramic pot, you can even take it a step further and put soil and a plant in the ceramic pot you make, adorning it with knick-knacks and whatnot. Make sure the plant does well in your specific region.
Avoid Giving Gift Cards When Possible
Save gift cards for people who you are only acquainted with. Take the time to select a gift and put a fair amount of thought into it. Yes, gift cards are convenient and have their place – but it says a lot more to choose a gift that both says something about the person you’re giving it to as well as says something about you.
Buy Gifts that People Need Instead of Gifts People Want
One way to make sure that your gift stands alone this holiday season is to focus on buying gifts that people might need down the road in lieu of getting things like electronics, clothes, and other run-of-the-mill gift choices.
One thing that people need is a reliable source of energy in the event of outages and unforeseen weather emergencies. Geneverse products like the HP PRO Series are great for outages, natural disasters, and even off-the-grid activities like lake days and camping. Our solar generators make perfect gifts for outdoor enthusiasts, doomsday preppers, and those who want to be prepared for whatever comes.
