Gifts for the Ungiftables this Holiday Season
As the days become shorter and the weather gets colder, we're reminded of two things: winter is fast approaching and so is the holiday season. While many happy memories are made during this time of year, we are tasked with the challenge of gift-giving, or rather, buying for the ungiftables – the co-worker, relative or friend who seems impossible to find the right present for.
After spending hours searching online and in stores, frustration can begin to take over. Don't fret, there is a solution: personalized gifts. Creating a calendar or photo book are great ideas that are customized to your ungiftable. Retailers like Staples have the services available to help you create that perfect gift.
“We've all experienced the hardships associated with attempting to buy a gift for someone, only to find it's an impossible task,” said Joann Peet, category manager at Staples. “A personalized gift always satisfies. All of our stores have copy and print services, and our associates can easily help you choose the perfect gift for that someone special.”
One of the best options for the ungiftable person is a custom calendar. Choose photos that are meaningful or funny and create a memory-filled calendar that will be enjoyed for 365 days.
Another alternative is a customized photo book. They are affordable and can be adjusted based on budget. They also make great coffee table books and truly spark conversation with guests.
For those who have the holiday plan and gift guide figured out, a nice personal touch over the winter season is to create customized greeting cards or labels. It's as simple as choosing a template and entering your image and text. Just be sure to tag a few days on to your order to ensure your items are printed and ready in time.
