The holiday season is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to start gift shopping for that special someone in your life. But how will you know when you come across the perfect gift? If you’re stuck for inspiration, here are a few excellent gift ideas to consider for your special someone this holiday season.
Gift an Accessory
If your significant other has a well-cultivated personal style and loves to accessorize, then an item to add to their wardrobe might be the perfect gift to consider this holiday season. Almost 38 million Americans will buy fine jewelry or watches in a given year, anyway. Not sure what kind of accessory your special someone would love the most? Here are a few options to consider when you’re browsing for gifts.
Earrings – Earrings are some of the most versatile accessories you can give to someone as a gift. There are countless styles that can go with just about any wardrobe out there. If your significant other has a bolder style, maybe a pair of statement earrings will be perfect. If they’re more elegant and understated, maybe a pair of diamond or pearl studs could be a timeless gift.
Scarves – Is winter your significant other’s favorite season? If they love getting cozy while staying stylish, a high-quality scarf could be an excellent gift option to consider. If your partner likes big statement pieces, a blanket scarf could be perfect.
Watches – Watches are not only an excellent accessory to add style to any outfit, but they’re also a very practical gift to give someone. Instead of using your phone to check the time, you get to look at a gorgeous watch. It’s also easy to coordinate a watch to your significant other’s wardrobe.
Gift an Experience
If you’re not really one for material gifts, it’s never a bad idea to consider gifting an experience to your significant other. If there’s a local event they love to attend every year, consider looking into presale tickets so you can go together. Concert tickets are another excellent experience-based gift. If you find out that a group your partner likes is playing in your area soon, purchase a pair of tickets as a surprise for them. Not only will it be a great date night for you two, but it will be a great opportunity to gift your loved one with an experience they’ll enjoy. Alternatively, your experience-based gift could be traveling. Maybe you and your partner have always wanted to go to Las Vegas. The 104 casinos in the valley make it an appealing vacation spot. And the earlier you book plane tickets, the more likely you are to score a great deal.
Gift a Useful Tool
Finally, it pays to pay attention to what your significant other says they need or want for things they do around the house. Whether they need a tool for their crafting hobby or a stand mixer to improve their bread recipe in the kitchen, the gift of useful tools never gets old. And more often than not, this is the kind of gift that your partner will get years of use from. Practical gifts, whether for a hobby or for a common household task like cooking, are always a great option to turn to when you’re not sure if a more frivolous gift would be appropriate. When in doubt, ask your partner if there’s anything that would help make their life easier or help them get back into a hobby they’ve been neglecting. This will usually give you a good idea of some practical items that need to make their way into your home.
Picking gifts for the special someone in your life, though not as stressful as planning a wedding, can still be a big challenge. If you’re clean out of ideas, use these suggestions as inspiration to get you started on your gift hunt.
