Gift Guide Ideas for the Holidays 2021

The holidays are upon us, and it’s time to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. If you want to give a quality gift you know will be enjoyed, there are plenty of thoughtful choices. No matter who you are shopping for, the right present is waiting.

Books

Whether you know an avid bibliophile or are trying to help someone who wants to become a reader, books are a gift you won’t regret giving. There are a variety of genres to choose from, and you can even choose the format that fits the needs of the person in your life.

If you aren’t sure what book to purchase, you can give a gift card or subscription instead. This allows anyone to choose from audiobooks, physical books, or e-books, and it gives them the freedom to choose the book they want to read.

You can also grab a coffee table book for anyone who likes to keep items around the house that will start conversations. Coffee table books tend to be beautifully designed and span a variety of topics.

Experiences

Studies show that if you want to give a gift that will offer true happiness, give an experience. It’s proven that experiences make people happier than material items, and there are a ton to choose from for the people in your life.

Concert tickets, music lessons, or tickets to Broadway shows are all options. When you give an experience, the pleasure lasts. There will be anticipation leading up to the event, the actual fun of the experience, and the memories that last.

 “The basic finding from a lot of experiments is that people derive more happiness from their experiences than from their possessions.”

Amit Kumar

Massages, cooking lessons, or memberships to museums are also wonderful choices. Know what the person you are buying for is interested in to find the experience that will bring happiness to them far beyond the holidays.

Plants

You don’t need a green thumb to enjoy plants, and receiving beautiful greenery is a thrill for anyone. You can give house plants that help clean the air of a person’s home or opt for outdoor plants that will add color and flair to any yard.

If you have no idea how the person you are buying handles plants, go for a succulent. They are beautifully placed on a windowsill and require very little attention. For someone hoping to grow their food, consider an indoor herb garden that will look and smell great in the kitchen.

You can also buy a traditional bouquet if you have a person in your life who loves a touch of beauty in their home. Consider seeds for an aspiring gardener. Though they won’t be in full bloom, they will give the recipient something to look forward to when the ground thaws and spring comes.

Games

Though we all have access to games on our devices, playing an actual game with other people is a different experience. That’s why buying games for holiday presents is such a good idea. It’s easy to forget the joy of gathering around a table for some friendly competition until you try it again.

From Comedian Jeff Foxworthy. Read a setup card aloud like, "When my brother brought out his new baby to show the family, Granny blurted out..." then everyone else chooses one of the punchline cards to finish the phrase like "you are not the father" or "I just vomited a little bit in my mouth." The reader picks the one they think is the funniest and that player gets a point. Always a laugh and a different game each time you play!

The games on the market now span from traditional picks to more modern choices. Make sure to read the description so you don’t buy a game meant for adults for anyone too young to appreciate it. If you want the added gift of an experience, plan a game night so the recipient of the gift will be able to use it and reap the benefits.

Puzzles

Winters can feel long, and being stuck inside without a goal is difficult. Give someone a puzzle for the holidays and know that they will be occupied for days or weeks.

There are standard puzzles that come in different sizes, but there are other options as well. Three-dimensional puzzles present a unique challenge for even the best puzzle person. You can also purchase puzzles that contain secret clues that have to be found once the puzzle is complete.
