It is the most wonderful time of the year for so many! Trimming the tree, shopping for gifts, planning the perfect holiday meal, volunteering—the list goes on. With the hustle and bustle that surrounds the holidays, shopping for that perfect gift may be challenging. While we think a new inground pool cover is an ideal gift for the entire family, here are some suggestions for others who may not be fortunate enough to own a pool.
Smart speaker. Smart speakers are sure to be a hot ticket item this holiday season. Newer versions are smaller and come in new finishes to blend more easily into any home décor. Choose options based on your gift recipient: controlling the home, selecting musical playlists, or taking family game night to a brand-new level.
Smartwatch. Another trendy item for the techie in your life, a smartwatch allows you to make calls and receive data via a cellular network—without your phone. It can also track your fitness activity and act as a GPS. It offers multitasking at its best.
Fruit gift pack. This is a great gift option to ship to family members or friends who live far away. You can send grapefruits and oranges from a Florida orchard. Alternatively, choose some specialty apples—such as McIntosh or Cortland—from an orchard in the New England area. Yum!
Gourmet popcorn. This gift is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages! Since gourmet popcorn comes in all kinds of delicious, mouth-watering flavors, you are bound to find a special treat for everyone on your list.
Stylish headphones. There is a wide variety of headphones on the market. Choose something sophisticated for the world traveler. Any avid runner or gymgoer could always use a new set of sporty headphones. Opt for something colorful for your favorite fashionista or trendsetter.
Soft pajamas. New pajamas are always on point. Select soft, comfortable fabrics that your recipients cannot wait to change into. For many, pajamas are an afterthought and not something they will think to buy for themselves. Having a fresh pair may inspire them to get rid of the bedraggled old T-shirts they have been slumbering in!
Anything fleece. Speaking of comfortable pajamas, fleece blankets, robes, jackets, and sweatshirts are popular gift-giving options. Winter is the perfect time of year to wrap up in anything fleece to ward off the chill and feel pampered.
Mini keyboard. Tablets are extremely popular. A perfect tablet accessory is a portable keyboard. It will be that much easier to take the tablet out of the house and get more use out of it.
Decanter. This is an ideal gift to help dress up a bar. Choose something that complements your recipient’s taste. It is a stylish way to hold brandy, whiskey, or wine.
Set of playing cards. Buy a set of playing cards for some old-fashioned fun that does not require technology. An exciting game of poker, go fish, or gin rummy will liven up your holiday celebrations!
No matter which types of gifts you select for the favorite people in your life, do not forget that time spent together is the most important gift of all. Happy Holidays—cherish every moment!
