The holiday season is fast approaching. In less than a month, the whole world will be celebrating Christmas and New Year’s.
When it comes to gifts, a lot of people offer “safe” gifts that are ordinary and routine, like jewelry, a sweater, a journal, or a snowglobe. If you’re trying to go against the traditional gifts people give, you can add a bit of twist and help your friends and family get fit and healthy in the process. Thus, consider offering gifts to your loved ones that can improve their health and overall well-being.
The last week of December is the week of giving and receiving gifts and if you want to be unique and different, here are some unusual and crazy gift-giving ideas for you to impress your family and friends with:
1. Personalize The Gifts
You might have read this one before, but personalizing your gifts is one of the most important and unique gift giving ideas of all time.
Make your gifts unique with custom stickers and labels. Packaging your gifts well and with these intentions provides a lot of impact to the gift recipient. Always make sure you customize your gift before handing it over to the person you plan to give it to.
2. Sleeping Pillows
Having a good night’s sleep largely depends on the quality of the pillow.
Although it has been a routine for many people to actually do meditation before sleep to unwind and relax themselves, guided meditation for sleep can only help if your pillow is of high quality and therefore supports a quality night’s sleep.
By giving this gift, you can help your loved ones improve their sleep and be healthier in mind, body, and spirit.
Make sure you gift them the best pillow for neck pain and headache in order to provide full health benefits to the gift recipient.
3. Full-Face Motorcycle Helmets
If you are living in a country where bike riding is one of the most common transportation methods, then you should be well-aware of the importance of bike helmets.
In developing countries, the motorcycle is often the family vehicle with small families of four or less easily traveling on bikes.
Though it is convenient and cost-effective, most of the fatal accidents of bikes happen because of low quality helmets.
Full-Face motorcycle helmets can be great gift because it shows that you care about the recipient’s passion while ensuring their safety.
4. Book Exchange
Books are unique gifts that are probably the best gifts you can ever give to anyone.
There are a lot of books on how to improve our lives that are sold in the self-help genre. Aside from them, you can also find great books in the DIY category.
By giving books as gifts, you can actually help the gift receiver to improve their life by providing them with books where they can follow the tips and advice.
My all-time personal favorite is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It contains some timeless wisdom on how to achieve your dreams.
Find books that really resonate with others and gift them to your friends and family to give them the life-changing words he or she may need.
5. Dark Chocolate
Chocolate is one of the most common gift exchanges, especially during the holiday season. Instead of giving milk chocolates, make sure you buy dark chocolates as gifts.
Dark chocolates are a little pricier, but they have tremendous health benefits. They contain powerful antioxidants that are good for the heart and general well-being.
Make sure you personalize them through customized gift wrappings and present them in a large amount. Leave a note to inform the gift recipient about the benefits of dark chocolate.
By replacing your traditional gifts with healthier alternatives, you can help your friends and family to live a safe and healthy life.
