Holiday Gift Giving Ideas

November 25, 2016

The season of gift giving is once again fast approaching. Sometimes it is so difficult to find the perfect gift for someone, so here are some easy ways to make it easier.

  1. Secret Santa

Having to get gifts for multiple people is not only inconvenient but also costly. ‘Secret Santa’ is when there is a group of people and instead of everyone getting each other gifts, every person is assigned to only get one specific person a gift. This allows for a bigger budget for one person and also makes the gift given that much more unique. It typically works better with a larger group, but is fun none the less. Here are some websites that generate the names randomly:

  1. Activity gifts

Instead of giving a tangible gift consider doing an activity together with your friend group or family. Not only does this make gift giving easier, it’s also way more fun and a great way to spend time together. Some fun ideas include going out for dinner, going to a show, going on a day trip or to the movies! Here are some fun upcoming events:

  1. Homemade gifts

Instead of buying a gift why not make one?! Similar to ‘Secret Santa’, if everyone agrees on making gifts, you can do a handmade gift exchange. This makes gifts so much more personal and customizable. Check out these links for some inspiration:

  1. Be Charitable

If you really want to make a difference this holiday season, instead of giving gifts sponsor a family in need or volunteer at a local shelter. You will definitely not regret spending your time helping someone else, especially since that is what the holiday season is all about.

  1. Green Gifts

Make it your mission to be eco-friendly this holiday season and do a used gift exchange. This means not buying anything new and instead giving something you already have. Gifts may include but are not limited to: baked goods, paintings, hand-made toys, etc. For more ideas check out:
