3 Easy Gift Ideas for Someone You Aren’t Sure What To Buy
Trust me, I've been in a lot of situations where I have to purchase something for someone in a White Elephant, Secret Santa or just a general gift exchange where I had absolutely NO idea what to get them.
I am someone who is all about experiences. I really don't like giving material things because I think that experiences help create memories for someone to cherish forever.
With 2020 the way it has been, it seems like giving experiences isn't as easy as it normally is - but there are some material things that you CAN give to create an EXPERIENCE.
Some of my go-to for gifts when I'm in a predicament and I'm not sure what to get, are themed baskets. . My three favorites are movie night baskets, spa day baskets, and cooking baskets.
Movie Night Basket
Who doesn't love movies?! Here's some things you can buy for a movie night basket.
- A retro popcorn bin or bags
- Microwave popcorn
- Some classic movie DVDs or a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime
- A blanket
- Some movie theatre candy
Spa Night Basket
Maybe you have person in your life who likes to practice self care with a nice, relaxing evening. Here's some items you can get for a spa night basket.
- Bubble Bath
- Epsom Salts
- Face Mask
- A Bottle of Wine
- A Magazine Subscription
- A loofa
- Body Lotion
Cooking Night Basket
Some of my best memories are cooking in the kitchen with my loved ones. You can create a cooking night basket with (really) any kind of themed meal idea. For the purpose of this post, we'll do a pasta theme.
- Some artesian pastas
- Sauces of different varieties
- Maybe some cheeses?
These ideas allow people to have an experience with their gift. They may love having that movie night in with a loved one. Maybe that spa night is just what's needed after a stressful year. And that cooking night may bring some of the best food they've ever had - and you'll be the one to thank.
