Whether it’s Christmas, a holiday, birthday, or special occasion, it always seems that it’s a good idea to have various gift ideas for the occasion. You never know when you might need a quick gift or accidentally may forget a birthday. However, you don’t want to be stuck giving the same generic gift that everyone gives every year that no one likes.
Below are ideas for various gifts that are easy to purchase and can be customized easily depending on the person you’re giving it to. Use the ideas below as ’emergency’ gifts for any occasion you may need a little something special for someone.
This is a gift that those who don’t like to shop or don’t have time to shop would enjoy. There are several companies online where you can place an order for groceries and/or frozen in any amount to be delivered as well as prepared meals that the person simply has to put in the oven to enjoy.
Orders are usually delivered once a month, making it a convenient option for those who like to stock up on food so that they can plan their meals. This is an ideal gift idea for a senior citizen, someone who is disabled or someone who just had a baby. This is also great for those who have recently lost a loved one or may be adjusting to a new life situation and are already under a lot of stress. This is a subtle way for you to help them and show that you care for them and want to get them a gift they will enjoy and find useful. You can also have other people chip in on the cost so that you can purchase it for longer, cutting down on how much each individual person pays.
Most people want a clean home but find that it’s sometimes hard to accomplish the task during the week. Give the gift of a maid service to help someone have a cleaner home that is enjoyable. You can choose anything, from a basic cleaning service each week or once a month to a detailed service that will help with everything from laundry to preparing meals. This is also another gift idea that you could potentially have a group go in on to cut down on individual costs or be able to purchase the service for longer.
Since more people are ordering items online and are having them delivered to the home, why not give an e-gift card? You can get a card from a specific company that the person would like or a general card that can be used anywhere online.
Consider getting a few cards in different amounts as a surprise so that the person can get what is desired for personal use or for the home.
Beauty Gift Subscription
This is a gift that tends to be more for women as beauty boxes usually contain makeup, but there are a few companies that are now offering the same services for men so they can get razors, shaving gels and other toiletries.
There are boxes of different sizes that you can order that are sent once a month to the person. A curated box is a good place to start before the person customizes what they get in the future.This is a fun way to get the gift that keeps on giving, as you could sign up for a subscription.You could also get the box customized to what the person enjoys or what you think they would enjoy. Either way, this is an extremely creative and easily personalized gift they are sure to love.
From food to makeup, there are several ideas for last minute gift ideas in case you forget someone on your list. Think about the needs that the person might have and what would benefit the person the most. It’s not about the amount that you spend, but the time you get to spend with family and friends that really matters.
