Shopping for gifts would be a lot more fun if everyone were easier to shop for. Brainstorming gift ideas is the hardest part of holiday shopping. This list includes a few unique ideas you might not have considered for almost everyone on your list.

With a mix of unique personalized gifts, gifts that keep on giving, and even the gift of a personal assistant, these gifts are sure to elicit the best reactions when your loved ones open them.

For Your Spouse

Personalized gifts are always a hit, but personalized gifts with sentimental value? They’re even more special. These constellation maps can be customized to commemorate the stars in the moment you met, the first time you kissed, or the day your child was born. Not only are they meaningful, but they make for a beautiful piece of art as well.

 

For the Kids

Most every child has a mile-long list this time of year making shopping easy. Delight them by switching up one of their gifts for something none of their friends will have. A fun take on the classic Viewmaster is to turn your child’s favorite photos into a toy with this personalized viewer. It will ensure hours of enjoyment and serve as a keepsake when they’re older.

For Your Neighbors 

Surprise your neighbors with these festive personalized cups. They’re a staple everyone can use year round. Personalize them with your community’s name or logo. They can also be personalized with last names for a more personal present. This gift is a great way to thank your neighbors for being great.

For the Home

Voice controlled smart assistants are a fabulous gift for your home. They can play music on demand, coordinate your calendar, and even order things when you don’t have the time. All with the power of your voice! Smart assistants like this are a great gift for your home this year.

 

For Your Parents

Give the grandparents who have everything a photobook of their favorite grandkids (or grand-pets!). These books are made from your Facebook or Instagram photos. All you have to do is download an app and choose a couple of simple options. They’re reasonably priced and make a great recurring yearly gift tradition.

For Your Friends

Give your friends the present of a subscription this year. The subscription can be as simple as a magazine they’ll love or it can be as elaborate as a monthly cheese delivery or meal box subscription (see below). Any recurring gift guarantees they’ll think fondly of you every time it’s delivered.

 

For Dinner

Who wouldn’t love giving dinner a little help during this busy season? Give yourself or friends the gift of a meal box subscription. These prepackaged boxes do the meal planning and shopping for you. You still get the joy of cooking a homemade meal- without the arduous planning and shopping steps.

 

For Yourself

Everyone can benefit from a “for me, from me” present this time of year. Decorating the tree can be fun work, but hard on the muscles! A holiday massage is a present you don’t even need to wrap for yourself. Take a break from decking the halls to release tension and destress during the hectic holiday season.

We hope these ideas help to make your gift giving just a little bit easier this year. Wishing you a peaceful and happy holiday from us here at the Sal Poliandro Team!
