Hard to believe it, but it’s time to start thinking about Holiday presents, and one of our favorite ways to give a gift is with a gift card or gift certificate! We feel you should dictate what you experience, and the money should go towards making you feel good, not adding to your tchotchke pile. However, some may see it as an impersonal gift. So, we thought we’d share some of our favorite (and easy) ways to present a special gift!
For the Drinker
Maybe your giftee really enjoys a good bottle of wine. Why not wrap the gift certificate around the bottle of wine and put a bow on it! There’s nothing like getting a gift that serves two purposes! Maybe he or she doesn’t care for wine, but would love a good cup of tea? Fold the gift certificate into a cup (add a couple of their favorite tea bags as well) and wrap the cup and saucer with a lovely ribbon into a bow on top.
For the Tired Parent
We all know that mom or dad that gets mistaken for a zombie more often than not. They’re tired, they’re overworked, and certainly underpaid. They deserve a break! Take a lovely reusable basket (parents love those) and add an eye mask, scented soaps, essential oils, and your spa-tacular gift certificate for a ‘Personal Night Out!’ gift!
For a High School/College Athlete
Oh, to be young! Their ability to go-go-go is quite enviable. Unfortunately, the number of aches and pains they have due to the enormous requirements from their sport can unnecessarily stress them out and open them up to injury. Use a small zip-up bag and fill it with band-aids, Neosporin, ankle wrap, and a massage gift certificate. Make sure the bag is small enough to fit into their sports bag.
For a High School/College Student
Not everyone plays sports, but those who go to school understand how stressful deadlines can be, with tests, projects, etc. Give them a little bit of a break with a gift they’ll really love! Fill a coffee mug with extra pens, pencils, essential oils to help them stay awake and focuses, and of course, a massage certificate!
For a Favorite Teacher/Coach
Sometimes we come across someone who really makes a difference in either our lives, or in our children’s lives. They work hard, and are rarely recognized for all that they do. Rally your teammate’s, team parents, or classmates/class parents to pitch in for a one-of-a-kind gift! A massage certificate and two bottles of essential oils, a candle and a small box of chocolates all wrapped up in a lovely box will make any teacher’s or coach’s day!
