Holiday Gift Giving Ideas For Friends & Family

As the weather get colder outside and the month of December starts to slowly approach us, it's time to start thinking about some fun holiday gift giving ideas that your friends will surly enjoy. Keep reading to discover what kind of creative new ways you can discover to DIY your own gifts and make the Christmas gift giving experience even more personalized this year.


Tickets to a Show/Concert 

Going together to see a show or play is a great gift for anyone no matter the age! This idea is perfect because it guarantees quality time with your friends and loved ones. Personally, I believe that there is nothing better than bonding over a great performance that both parties share an interest in. This idea is great for large groups of friends who share similar interests. Get together as many people as possible to enjoy the experience together.

Custom Artwork 

This year make an effort to support your local small businesses and artists by working with them on commissions for personalized works of art. Your friends and family will surely recognize the effort you put into ensuring their gifts have a personalized touch to them, making them appreciate their gifts and love for you even more. Nothing says "I care about you" more than an amazing piece of custom art that you can keep forever to look back on.

Comfy Blanket 

A good comfy blanket during the colder months is never a bad gift idea, in fact I don't think you can ever have too many blankets when its cold out! Pair this gift idea with some holiday themed treats/snacks and make an initiative to incorporate it into a cozy Christmas movie night.

A Good Book 

Gifting someone a book that you've read or heard was good is always a great idea. Good books have the ability to really shift someone's perspective on life and allow them to dive into another world and get lost in it. There's nothing better than allowing a good book to consume you, so make an effort to share those good reads with the ones you think would appreciate them.

Cooking Classes 

Pick up a new hobby with your friends and family by signing up for a cooking class where you can learn to make some fun new dishes for the new year! Whether it be baking a cake or roasting a turkey, being together to enjoy the learning experience together is what will make this gift so memorable. Who knows, this experience could even spark a new holiday tradition for your friends and family.

Mini Succulents 

Succulents are excellent gifts for people who want to become plant parents but are just getting started caring and learning about them. Succulents are one of the easiest plants to care for so they are great started plants for your friends and family to care for. They also act as the perfect addition to any living space, you really can't go wrong with this gift idea!

Espresso Machine

Going out during the winter for a good cup of coffee becomes a lot more tedious when the temperature dips to freezing outside. Having a reliable espresso machine at home for all your coffee loving needs would be a dream come true for any coffee lover during the colder months.
