Find the gift that keeps on giving
(NC) Sometimes we wish we could just get a wish list from our friends and families to ease the stress of finding the perfect gift – especially for that person who is nearly impossible to please year after year. This added stress can really put a damper on your holiday season. Here are some gifting ideas for the gift enigmas on your list so you can enjoy a stress-free shopping experience this holiday season:
DIYers – Purchase glass blowing classes or pottery workshops for friends or family that know how to create a plush headboard out of a couple of milk crates. They can put this additional skillset to use and make some stunning tabletop décor from their expert hands.
Zenfully Minded –Gift a spiritual friend with a private yoga class or weekend meditation retreat. They'll appreciate their downward dog away from city life and find inner nirvana in a countryside sun salute.
Foodies – If their risotto comes out perfect every time, pastry classes might be the way to go – even the soufflé continues to unnerve Michelin star chefs. A tour of a vineyard is a great gesture for those who are self-proclaimed or practicing sommeliers, too.
Technophile – The SiriusXM Lynx radio is the utilitarian gift that can please everyone from laugh out loud dad and hipster nephew to soapbox mom and cranky uncleWith over 120 channels of music, news, talk radio, sports and entertainment radio to listen to, the gadget-lover on your list can tune in via satellite or Internet connection to hear whatever suits their mood.
Style Maven – Giftcards are a fantastic gift because you can place any denomination on it you want, and you can get one directly from the gift receiver's favourite retail destination. From homemade knits to haute couture, they're not tied down to one article of clothing!
