Nowadays, material gifts like, stuffed toys, wines and flowers are considered common but may have little to no use for most of its recipients. Most people, however, prefer gifts like cash so they can buy stuff to their own liking or the gift of travel opportunity to unwind and relax these holidays. Since Christmas day is just around the corner here are some gift ideas your loved ones will absolutely be thankful for!
1. Buffet Treat
Instead of rushing everyone in your home to prepare for a big treat on Christmas and New Year’s eve, why don’t you treat the whole family at a buffet? You can have the best quality of unlimited food without making such an effort (or a mess) at home! Having all these available food on hand can give your group much time to also talk and really bond.
2. Pamper Day
What’s more relaxing than having an all-paid pamper day with great back massage to newly polished nails? This is such a great gift especially to people who have worked real hard this year, like your parents, siblings or friends. Show them your appreciation by giving them the most relaxing and non-stressful day they’ll ever have. You know they deserve it!
3. Your own baked dessert
One of the most heartfelt gifts you can ever give to someone is something that you really worked hard for. Show your appreciation to your loved ones by whipping up your own creation of cupcakes, cakes or a simple desserts like a tiramisu! This may be very simple but the most thoughful one. The best way to make it to anyone’s heart is through his stomach!
4. Personalize Gift Certificate!
This is kind of witty and easy to do especially during the holidays. You can make personalized gift certificates from any of your favorite stores like coffee shops or shoe salons, which they can claim anytime they want.

It can be like free massage, free ice cream at Mcdonalds, or Free lunch for two. When giving this as a gift try to be very creative and cheesy is the best way to describe it.
5. Gift Basket!
This is very ideal to those people who are undecided on what they want for Christmas. Gift baskets can be of different themes like a basket full of food that are salty and sweet, a basket filled with ingredients that can be used for cooking a sumptuous dish. A basket of personal necessities like organic soaps, room mists, scented oils or all of these combined. You see there are no rules on a gift basket. All you need is the right size of basket for the right amount of goodies you’ll be giving.
6. Recreational Class
This gift is superb for stay at home moms and your siblings. The best gift you can give to your loved ones is the gift of opportunity to hone or discover their talents and skills. It can be a pottery class, piano or guitar class, art class, cooking or dance class. This will also encourage them to go out more and have fun.
