In this busy world filled with too much to do in a limited amount of time, it can be easy to miss an important day in a loved one’s life. If you don’t have time for all that shopping, and you can’t find anything online that appeals to your gift-giving senses, don’t give up. Here are three of the traditional gifts that procrastinators have loved giving for decades.
Giving jewelry to a loved one has been a tradition for thousands of years for a good reason. Whether it is silver, gold, or gemstones, jewelry can make someone feel important and loved. There are many styles to choose from, so it can be difficult to decide on the perfect piece. However, if you stick to the basics and purchase a simple woven necklace, a delicately engraved ring, or western-style jewelry, you can’t go wrong.
Procrastinators love giving gift cards at any time of the year. Although they may not be the most original gift idea, some people see the cards as the best gift anyone can give them. If you have a handyman, give a card from a tool shop. For that special girlfriend, select a card for a day at the spa, complete with manicure and pedicure. If your gift is for a small child, choose a bounce house, a zoo expedition, or a day at a theme park.
Putting together a basket for a foodie friend can be the perfect gift. Create a dinner basket with spaghetti noodles, a jar of marinara sauce, and some bread. Choose a fruit basket by picking a variety of products and tuck a fruit salad recipe inside. Select a picnic theme and gather meats, cheeses, and crackers to place on top of a bottle of wine and a fun blanket.
Don’t make gift-giving excuses this year. Give a present that will fill your loved one with happiness that you remembered them. Choose one of the three options above and watch the delight the recipient displays.
