Unique Christmas Gift Ideas For The Person Who Has Everything

Unique Christmas Gift Ideas For The Person Who Has Everything

We all have at least one person in our lives who is practically impossible to shop for. Whether it’s because they are always on top of everything or because they are extremely picky, these people are always the hardest to cross off our holiday shopping lists.

Instead of struggling to find something at your local store, consider one of the following options: each of these items is perfectly suited to the both the person who has everything, and the person who is unimpressed by anything.

Food Gift Basket

One thing that everyone has in common is a love of food. Therefore, you cannot go wrong with this practical and thoughtful gift as long as you know the recipient well enough to select a basket that will contain some of their favorite treats.

Event Tickets

Tickets to see the person’s favorite sports team, band or Broadway musical are the perfect way to provide someone who has everything with a memorable evening. If you want to enhance the gift, consider adding enough cash to cover parking, drinks and snacks!

Movie Night Basket

This idea will require you to have access to their DVD collection to ensure that you do not purchase a duplicate item. As soon as you have taken a good look at what they have, you can buy them a new DVD that would fit well with the rest of their collection. Place the DVD in a gift basket along with some popcorn and movie theater candy.

Plan an Excursion

Everyone has something that they have always wanted to do, and providing this for another person is one of the best possible gift ideas. For example, the person who you are shopping for might have mentioned to you once that they have always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride. Instead of letting that remain nothing more than a wish, you can a plan a one-day excursion for them that will include that dream ride.

Custom Photo Gifts

Everyone enjoys having their favorite photos collected in one place, and personalized photo products are a great way to give life to those JPEGs! A custom photo-book, canvas print or photo calendar will enable you to create a truly unique and meaningful gift.

This is an idea that is especially well-suited to a parent who posts lots of photos of their children on Facebook, because it will be easy to gather images without accidentally tipping off the recipient. Family photo-books are also great gifts for grandparents and distant family members. Some services now allow you to create your photo gifts online and get them shipped to you in no time, such as Shutterfly or Elephoto.

Provide a Service

For some people, the best gift does not have a price tag associated with it. For example, you could give them a massage, babysit for an evening or clean their house. Although they will not have a material object to keep, they’ll have fond memories of a day that was much less stressful because of the help you provided.

Books

Even those who rarely read appreciate receiving a good book. However, to ensure that your book will be enjoyed, you must know the literary preferences of the person who will receive it. If you’re unsure, ask their family or friends for some advice. Check out Chapters or another major book store and see what the bestsellers are in the genres/categories that your recipient might enjoy.

As you can see, it is not as difficult as you once thought to decide on the perfect gift for a person who has everything. The best part about all of the ideas listed above is that they are all unique enough to be memorable, and there is very little chance that someone else will get them the same thing.

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
