1. Gift boxes
You could certainly wrap your gifts in paper and hide them in a cardboard box. But wouldn’t it be more convenient to use gift boxes? There are numerous reasons why these containers make excellent gifts:
- They make the gift more personal.
- After the holiday season is over, they can be used for storage or decoration.
- You can repurpose them as gifts!
2. Ethical and sustainable products
Environmentally friendly products meet stringent environmental standards in their design, manufacturing, packaging, delivery, use, and disposal. People are becoming more environmentally conscious, and giving eco-friendly products as gifts to others is a good option because it frequently shows that you care about the environment.
- People want to give ethical and sustainable gifts.
- They also want to know the backstory of the products they purchase.
- People want to know how a product was created, where it was created, and who created it.
3. Experiences over things
Even if you have the means to buy a luxurious gift, keep in mind that experiences are often more memorable than things. Experiences can be more personal and less expensive than things.
There’s nothing wrong with materialistic holiday gifts, but experiences are becoming more popular because they’re more likely to be shared with others (and thus create memories).
Some ideas for experiences include:
- a vacation to an exotic location (think Maldives or Dubai)
- tickets or passes to an event like a music festival or sporting event
- tickets for local attractions such as museums, theaters, or amusement parks
4. Alcoholic hot chocolate
Alcoholic hot chocolate is a great way to start a party. It can be made ahead of time and served hot or cold. It’s also simple to make and allows you to experiment with different flavors. It’s an excellent Christmas present for family and friends.
5. No-frills foodies
No-frills foodies are those who enjoy cooking but lack the time or energy to prepare elaborate meals. They enjoy simple, healthy foods and enjoy sharing their recipes with others. They’re also not afraid to eat alone.
6. Nostalgia gifts
Nostalgia is a strong emotion. You tend to remember more about your childhood as you get older than when you were younger. It’s natural to want to relive some of those memories with gifts that bring back memories. More retro gifts are likely to come back into style in 2022—and not just in clothing and accessories! Retro toys and games are becoming more popular; they’re less expensive than they used to be (making them an excellent gift), and some even have educational value (which also makes them great gifts). If you can’t find what you’re looking for at your local toy store or online retailer, you can look on sites like eBay or Etsy.
If all else fails, consider buying an older version of a new product: many companies rerelease products every few years with minor changes so people can buy them again without feeling like they’re wasting money on something they already own.”
7. Healthy treats
People are becoming more aware of the importance of eating healthily, and healthy eating is becoming more popular. As a result, there are a plethora of healthy treats available that are good for you but aren’t boring!
8. Scented candles
Scented candles are a great gift for anyone. Candles can be used to create a relaxing atmosphere, a romantic atmosphere, an uplifting atmosphere, or even a festive atmosphere. They’re also really simple to make at home and they don’t cost too much money if you buy them in bulk online.
9. Bespoke personalised jewellery
Personalised jewellery makes an ideal gift for someone special, whether you’re looking for something to commemorate an anniversary or simply want to treat your mother to something nice. Bespoke pieces can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes using gold, silver, and diamonds. The most popular option is to have a message engraved on the piece, such as “I love you” or “Happy Christmas.”
10. Subscription boxes
Subscription boxes make an excellent gift for those who enjoy trying new things. These boxes include a surprise item, usually food or drink, that you and your loved ones can enjoy together. If your child enjoys unicorns and rainbows, consider signing them up for a monthly subscription box that sends them adorable unicorn toys and accessories each month. There are also plenty of options for men-focused subscription boxes for all the men in your life (or women looking for gifts for their husbands). These range from grooming products to hot sauces and snacks!
