What To Get Your Loved Ones For The Holidays

With the Holidays just around the corner, you might be a little stressed preparing presents for your friends and family. Not only is it difficult to decide what to get others, but it can also be quite expensive.  Allow me to lighten the load with a few gift ideas and possibly some inspiration. 

What To Get A Mother:

  • Perfume set
  • Personalized jewelry
  • Designer purse
  • Personalized picture frame

What To Get A Father:

  • Wallet
  • Cologne set
  • Personalized coffee mug
  • Family calendar

What To Get A Sibling:

  • Cozy Blanket
  • Video game
  • Movie tickets
  • Family friendly board game

What To Get A Friend:

  • Sweatshirt
  • Gift card to favourite store
  • Olympic team mittens
  • Friendship jewelry

What To Get A Girlfriend:

  • Pandora charm
  • Manicure/Pedicure certificate
  • Birthstone jewelry
  • Concert/Event tickets

What To Get A Boyfriend:

  • Sunglasses
  • Watch
  • Baseball hat/snapback
  • Shoes


Keep in mind the lists above are not restrictive and many of the items are gender neutral.  Also, as nice as it may be to get a new Coach purse or a Michael Kors watch, homemade presents are a great alternative and a way to save money. Not only can it be cost effective if done right but it will be greatly appreciated by the person accepting it. A box of smaller things that someone enjoys (hand written notes, candy, phone accessories etc.) can be the ultimate gift. Another way to change up your Holiday shopping is by doing Secret Santa. Whether this is done within your family or a group of friends, it can be fun and save some money by not shopping for everyone. That being said, Happy Holidays and good luck shopping!
