Holiday Gift Ideas That Show You Care

The season of giving is in full swing. Many look forward to giving and receiving gifts from friends and relatives. If you are anything like me it also brings a lot of pressure and anxiety. We want to find the perfect gift for everyone on our list. We tend overthink it and strive to find something meaningful, special – perfect.

This is my holiday shopping strategy – I think about each person individually and go through my checklist of questions:

  • Did they have anything significant happen during the last year?
  • What were their highs and lows?
  • Have they recently mentioned something they want or need?
  • Do they have a cause they are passionate about?
  • What does their daily routine look like?

These questions help me determine a perfect gift and not just a Target run to pick up ten coffee mugs, fill them with candy canes and hot cocoa then head home to celebrate my completion of holiday shopping. If you use a checklist like mine and still find yourself struggling to pick out the perfect present, here are some ideas that show you care.
