4 Christmas Gift Ideas for Choosy People
With Christmas comes an elaborate task of shopping for your friends and family. While shopping for some of them can be easy, when you start shopping for those who are choosy it can be a difficult task. You may feel that no matter what you buy for them, they never seem to like your gift. You may feel like cutting them from your Christmas list as that will be easier, but do not lose heart. The following are a list of ideas that can win over the choosiest person this Christmas.
1. Gift Them Cash
This idea can never go wrong. You can gift cash or a cheque and ask the person to buy whatever she wishes to for herself with that amount. This saves you hours of roaming around the mall trying to figure out what to buy for them. This is a great gift idea for teenagers and young adults. They never seem to like idea of the elders and with this gift they can buy anything of their own choice. You can also gift a savings account for your kid or start a college fund by depositing money in them.
2. Use Gift Cards
If you think that the cash you gift maybe used by the person for other purposes than to buy something, you can always give them a gift card. A gift card functions like money but it can be redeemed only if you purchase something against it. If you get discounted gift cards from her favorite shop, she will appreciate the fact that you know her taste, while she still has the liberty to choose anything that she wants.
3. Ask for Wish List
You can ask the choosy person to draw up a wish list for the festive season, stating things she would want as a gift during Christmas. This will give you a list of things you can buy her as a gift and you will be saved from the hassle of sitting down and figuring out a gift idea. Choose something from that list and gift it. Since the person will not know what you have chosen, it will still be a surprise.
4. Gift Them a Service
Even if a woman is choosy about her gifts, she will not be able to turn down a gift that gives her a day at a spa. She can still choose the services she wants. If it’s a man, you can always gift them a day at a golf course or carpentry workshop. This gift allows them to plan the whole thing according to their schedule as well.
These innovative gift ideas will help make your hectic pre-Christmas shopping a little less hectic. The ideas also allow you to spread the festive cheer by bringing a smile on the faces of these choosy people.
