This is a more difficult gift to give, because you really have to think about what the recipient enjoys doing. If they enjoy eating out, for example, you could get them a gift card to one of their favorite restaurants, like Chipotle. Or maybe they enjoy coffee, then maybe a Starbucks gift card could be in order.
This is fun to give, because sometimes those who are frugal don’t want to “splurge” and eat out, but they would if they got a gift card.
I personally love to give gifts like this! Here are some things I have done in the past or want to do:
Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
Gifts in a Jar
This could get fun! Maybe you and your best friend don’t get to hang out often. A good gift for her might be a “coupon” for a girl’s night out!
Maybe you miss your grandchildren and haven’t seen them in a while. A good gift might be for them to come spend a week with you. This would allow some time to build memories.
Or maybe you have some pictures that are really memorable for a relationship you have…a good gift could be to put the photo(s) in a frame and pass it on.
Do you have close friends that are like-minded and want to focus more on Christ this Christmas season too? This is a great opportunity to use their gift to bless others! Here are some ways you can do that:
Buy them a gift from the World Vision Gift Catalog. You could bless a family with two ducks, and do it in your friend’s honor. What a blessing it would be to know that you are impacting a family in a poverty stricken county and that you are doing it in your friend’s honor!
Buy a necklace for someone and at the same time help feed a child in Uganda.
There are tons of ways that you could buy someone a gift, and then in return also help families who are trying to adopt. This is a gift with an enormous impact!
