The holidays are coming up, which means it is time for gift giving! Need help figuring out what to get your best friend, family member, teacher, or someone special? Here are some unique ideas that they are sure to love and keep you away from the last-minute gift cards.
This is a perfect gift for someone who loves to jam. Wireless speakers are definitely in right now. Your giftee can blast their favorite music for a solo dance party (which is totally underrated), or they could bring it to a party for some extra fun.
- Self-Care Package
We all need to relax sometimes, especially with the stress of high school. Take a basket and throw in some face masks, candles, nail polish and some of their favorite scents from Bath & Body Works (Holiday scents are to die for). Add in some of their favorite candies, snacks, and drinks for some extra jazz.
- Hair Products
As the weather gets colder and the air gets drier, so do people’s hair. Who would not enjoy some much needed moisture? Shea Moisture, Cantu and Maui Moisture are some brands that give your hair everything it needs and nothing it does not. The variety of scents are also a bonus. They will help slay those twist outs and wash and gos.
- Custom Jewelry
If you know someone into jewelry, you can get a necklace representing someone special to them. From their name to yours, custom necklaces or bracelets are great for someone close to you. There are so many options to choose from, and customizable gifts are always thoughtful and personal.
- Photo Album
A group of photos is the best way to capture this year’s memories. Find your favorite moments and put them together in a book or a collage. Polaroid styles are always cute and nostalgic, and they allow you to caption each photo. Add some empty pages to the collection so you have room for more memories in 2020.
- Plan a Sleepover
Sleepovers are a great way to spend quality time with friends you do not get enough time with during school, or throughout the year. You could surprise them with a box of pizza, holiday themed cookies, and their favorite snacks. This might be one of the more affordable ideas because you probably already own PJs and blankets. To make things even better, you can pick out your favorite movies, make a blanket fort, and take aesthetically pleasing pictures.
- Take Them Out
Who doesn’t love food? Take your special someone out to eat at their favorite restaurant, or check out a new one. If you want to save money, you can tell them to get dressed up and take them around the city or any holiday themed activity like Zoo Lights in DC. Plus, you can take nice photos to fill in your photo album for the next holiday season!
- Decorate Their Room
The only limitation to this gift is that you need to be close enough to the person to get into their house without them knowing, so this is a perfect gift for a close friend or relative. Decorate their room with their favorite colors. Hang up a tapestry, or a poster of their favorite artist. This shows sentiment, and you care about them enough to take the time out to think of such a unique surprise.
- Theme Boxes
Like the self-care package, you can create a box full of similarly themed items. Imagine a package with pumpkin spiced gifts: soaps, lotions and candles. Or, collect items of the same color: scrunchies, socks and scarves. Challenge yourself!
Gifting someone any of these gifts is sure to leave a memorable mark in their heart, which is the whole idea of the holidays. Do not stress out! Trust in yourself to give the best gift. As long as you display your creativity and love thoughtfully, your recipient is sure to love their gift.
