Holiday gift-giving tips and inspiration
Looking for a way to “Sleigh the Holiday?” Raise the bar on gift-giving with thoughtful items for everyone on your list.
Foodies and Party Hosts
Home chefs will appreciate new gear to spice up their cooking and entertaining. Long-lasting pre-seasoned cast iron open stock cookware adds both form and function to kitchens, and two-piece salt bowl and spoon sets make setting the table more fun.
For some, the holidays are truly the most wonderful time of year, and they let guests know by the way they decorate their homes. Give them a hall-decking boost. Consider traditional elements like holiday stockings, ornaments and pinecone wreaths. Or, get creative and modern with a reversible chalkboard wreath, to which celebrants can add their personalized messages and greetings.
For techies, give the gift of a smarter home and greater peace of mind. Tools allow users to stream live video to one’s smartphone for remote monitoring of the home, kids or pets, night or day. The camera will notify users if sound or motion is detected in a place that should be empty. Nest also makes an outdoor security camera and a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, which connect to one’s devices for alerts away from home, as well as a voice-operated thermostat that learns your schedule to help you save energy and money.
Give your recipient the ability to control ambiance with a touch of a button.
Consider personalized housewares, such as monogram wine stoppers or barware or state-shaped cutting and serving boards. Both functional and decorative, your recipient will appreciate the extra thought that went into the gift.
By discovering great gifts for every hobby, interest and aesthetic, at every price point, you can make gift-giving more fun for you and everyone on your list. (StatePoint)
