After spending a fruitful Thanksgiving with the family, here comes another awaited celebration of the year: Christmas. And what is the word almost synonymous with the holidays? Shopping. Specifically, for gifts to give loved ones to honor the spirit of gift-giving.
Of course, receiving gifts during this special occasion is something that people cherish, but gift recipients are not the only ones rejoicing during this season. This is also the time of the year when retailers get their high-grossing sales.
People spend a lot of time, effort, and money shopping for Christmas gifts. In fact, a Gallup study shows that an average American adult spends at most $920 on gifts per person, making a total of $1 trillion holiday spending nationwide.
But despite the tremendous marketing efforts of retailers for Christmas gifts, somehow, people always find themselves wondering what to give their loved ones. Gift-giving can be the source of anxiety, especially if it will be for your most favorite person in the world.
The dilemma lies in what to give someone who almost has everything. If you’re facing that problem too, here are some unique and stylish gift ideas that even your thrifty friends will appreciate.
Who says that working out is equivalent to looking exhausted? This gift screams, “Be fit, but make it fashionable!” Whether this friend is a gym rat or a gym virgin, a fitness kit complete with dumbbells, ankle weights, water tumbler, a cute fitness headband, and a towel will surely make their day.
Transform every bestie’s space into a cozy nook, and unleash her inner zen with relaxing scented candles that will not break the bank. Aside from aromatherapy, candles in aesthetic packaging will also function as a great accent for her home decors.
Who says you’re too old for a “Dear diary” moment? Studies show that keeping a journal to record thoughts and feelings has numerous health benefits. A stylish planner can also help your BFF keep track of her 2020 goals.
For that ultimate tear-jerking friendship moment. A friendship necklace is not just useful as a holiday gift; it can also serve as a birthday present, a friend-anniversary gift, or just a token of appreciation.
