Holiday shopping looks a little different this year, with many opting to check off their gift lists from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Even if you want to avoid the stores this holiday season, you can find plenty of gift options that are just a few clicks away.
Bouquets are a tried and true gift-giver’s lifesaver. If your local flower shop isn’t already swarmed with orders, floral arrangements typically have a quick delivery window. Alternatively, it may not technically be a bouquet, but an Edible Arrangement could also be a fun way to personalize a last-minute gift with the recipient’s favorite sweets.
- E-Gift Cards
Gift cards are a classic present that allows the recipient to get something you know they want. Luckily, many stores let you order gift cards online and the options are endless. You can be as personal as you want here, whether gifting a certificate for a specific spa package or handing over a Visa gift card that can be used for just about anything.
- Subscription Boxes
Subscription boxes and Gift of the Month clubs are huge in this digital era. If you still want your gift to have a personal touch, subscription boxes exist for just about every interest you can think of, from fashion and music to gourmet foods and DIY crafts.
- Experience Gifts
Give the gift of memories this holiday season! Believe it or not, you can purchase thousands of experiences for the adventurer in your life. You can send them on a tour, aboard a scenic cruise, give them a day with a professional chef, and much more. Best of all, you can buy vouchers from Cloud 9 Living that never expire.
- Online Lessons/Classes
Perhaps one of the most valuable gifts you can give your loved ones is education. You can take virtual courses in just about every topic imaginable and help the recipient find a new passion, learn a new skill, or discover a new hobby. MasterClass offers thousands of lessons from great minds such as Jane Goodall, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gordon Ramsay, and more.
An audiobook membership lets the avid reader in your life keep up on new titles from every genre, as long as they own a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other similar device. Subscribers to services like Audible can download the titles that they are interested in and take them on the go without lugging around a hefty book.
- Genealogy Services
You would be hard-pressed to find a more personal gift than one that can open the door to your loved one’s family history. By giving a genealogy service subscription like Ancestry, you’re also giving the individual and potentially the rest of their family the opportunity to discover new facts and connections in their family tree that they may otherwise have never known.
- Streaming Services
Video streaming services are extremely popular and offer something for every viewer. Of course, Netflix is generally the first platform that comes to mind, but you can purchase streaming subscriptions for Disney lovers, HBO bingers, sports fanatics, and more.
For the person who always seems to be in headphones, consider helping them purchase a premium plan for their favorite music streaming service like Spotify or Pandora. The chance to listen to their favorite songs without ad interruptions will be music to their ears.
Whether you’ve decided to stay in this holiday season or just want to shake up your normal gift go-to’s, these options will help you keep the Christmas spirit flowing!
