Step one: Select a gift.
Step two: Wrap and deliver.
Step three: Watch the look of surprise and excitement on the face of your loved one.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? The reality is, however, that it takes a lot of time and effort and general all around thinking hard about what gifts are appropriate, especially when we have that one really hard to buy for person on our list.
There are a couple of things to think about when selecting gifts that might help you get just what you need. Plus, we’ve put together a short guide to direct you to items that might be the perfect fit for that special someone in your life.
Selecting the gift
Think outside the box and come up with meaningful gifts that not only fit your budget but also the personality of the person you are buying for.
Before hitting the stores, search online. Look for niche web sites that offer the type of gift you have in mind. Since a niche is an area of expertise, these types of sites are excellent resources for finding the perfect gift. They offer a specific product as well as every available option, color, style, make and model and probably some you never dreamed existed for your gift…ie www.PicnicTrend.com. J
Look for Free Shipping offers. Also, many retailers (PicnicTrend.com included) offer an extra 10-20% off for shoppers who make purchases between Thanksgiving and the second week in December.
Your Short Gift Guide to the Perfect Gift
Coffee and Tea Lovers
Honesty, do they really want yet another holiday mug? Give them the gift of a coffee tote. They come equipped with thermal/stainless steel flasks and mugs as well as spoons, cloth napkins and containers for cream and sugar.
Why not give a themed garden gift? A Garden tote is fully loaded with 5 garden tools and detachable storage and it quickly folds into a chair for easy access to pesky weeds or for planting bulbs and flowers.
Sportsman or Sportswoman
A collegiate inspired gift is guaranteed to be just the ticket. BBQ tool kits, sports chairs, stadium seats, coolers, totes and even portable grills can be customized with a favorite college sports team logo making both a practical and fun gift for college sports fans.
The Wine Connoisseur
Consider a wine case for easy portability to and from wine tastings or wine events. A fully-loaded wine tote complete with corkscrew, wine glasses and napkins or a wine set that includes cork-pull, bottle stoppers, drip ring, foil cutter, pourer/stopper and thermometer is exactly what every wine lover needs!
The Grilling and Barbecuing Fanatic
A portable grill for quick and easy tailgating or a BBQ tool set will get them ready for the next game or that spur of the moment picnic. Portable grills are super easy to pack and haul and very often come with cooler compartments for keeping meat, veggies or drinks cool. BBQ tool sets come with every item needed to flip, skewer, poke, prod or remove whatever is on the grill.
The Person Who Loves PicnicsOf course, Picnic Baskets are perfect for just about anyone on your list. From the young to the young at heart, everyone loves sharing good times with loved ones in the great outdoors no matter what time of year! Picnic baskets come with service for two, four or even six so whatever the family size happens to be, there is something for everyone.
