Monthly Club Membership
Looking forward to a fun package in the mail each month really adds a lot of enjoyment to life, and that’s exactly what a monthly club membership provides. People love monthly clubs, so companies have been created to deliver monthly shipments of just about everything you can imagine. There are wine, beer and cheese of the month clubs for foodies. For collectors, you can find monthly clubs for coins and sports memorabilia. You can find monthly clubs for clothes, vinyl records, foreign films – just about anything you can imagine. Buying a loved one a monthly club membership also has the benefit of ensuring that you’ll be in that person’s thoughts at least 12 times over the next year.
CBD Beauty Products
Have you heard about CBD yet? This hemp-derived product is being added to everything from liquid oil drops to chewable gummy candies, and people are taking it for a myriad of health and wellness purposes. The most amazing thing about CBD is that, so far, it appears to be much more than just another health fad. There is a growing body of research to suggest that CBD has legitimate uses, and it is even the main active ingredient of some prescription medications. One of the most creative uses of CBD is that some companies such as VSAVI are now adding it to beauty products like anti-aging cream, undereye serum and lip gloss. CBD absorbs readily through the skin, so CBD beauty products are a great way to enjoy the benefits of hemp directly on your face. The beauty product aficionados in your life will love CBD.
If you have a loved one who enjoys playing with gadgets, radio-controlled drones are definitely some of the hottest holiday gifts for the 2019 season. Drones have finally reached the point at which camera-equipped units with long flight times are no longer exorbitant in price. More importantly, consistent firmware improvements have made today’s drones more reliable than ever. In the past, drone users often reported problems with drones that randomly lost contact with their controllers or failed to return to home when their batteries were low. Those kinds of problems are extremely rare today, making a drone a gift for gadget fans that’s both inexpensive and reliable.
Pre-Paid Spa Trip
Do you have a loved one who could use a little rest and relaxation? Consider giving that person the gift of all-day pampering with a trip to a spa. If you’re not sure what spa to choose, check for any nearby hotels or resorts. Resorts often have on-site spas that are quite luxurious, and people rarely go to those types of spas unless they’re on vacation – so a spa trip is the perfect gift. A typical hotel spa provides services such as facials, manicures, pedicures, massages and sauna sessions, so you can build an entire day of relaxation for a loved one who could use a little pampering.
Miniature Game Console
If you’re a child of the ‘80s or ‘90s, chances are that you have fond memories of playing with a game console such as the Nintendo Entertainment System or the Sega Genesis as a child. Today, you can find miniature versions of history’s most popular game consoles at many major retailers. Those consoles have all of the most popular games built in and ready to play. All that you need to do is connect the console to your TV’s HDMI port, turn it on and choose your game. With a miniature console, there’s no need to buy and maintain an expensive and bulky library of cartridges. Miniature consoles also have features like built-in game saving, allowing you to save your progress in a game and return to it later. The best part is that most miniature consoles include exact replicas of the controllers that you remember – so it’s an extremely authentic experience. A typical miniature game console costs well under $100.
Amazon Prime Membership
An Amazon Prime membership might not seem like the most glamorous gift in the world, but you’re not likely to find a more useful gift anywhere. An Amazon Prime membership entitles the member to free two-day delivery on all items purchased from Amazon, and some items are actually delivered the same day. Prime membership even includes free access to huge libraries of streaming music and video content. Just about every product that you can possibly imagine is on Amazon, so it’s likely that all of your loved ones shop there already. If they aren’t Prime members, it’s time for that to change!
Fresh Garland or Wreath
Everyone loves the scent of fresh pine, balsam or fir, but not everyone wants to go through the trouble and expense of buying a fresh tree, caring for it throughout the season and disposing of it after the new year. If you have a loved one who faithfully puts out the same artificial tree every year, that person might love the gift of fresh pine in their home. Companies around the country make it easy to send fresh Christmas decorations anywhere; you can place an order online and have the product shipped directly to your loved one’s door. Some of the most popular fresh holiday decorations include garlands, wreaths and table centerpieces. You can even buy decorations that are pre-strung with lights; just hang it up and plug it in. Buy your gift early; most of the companies that supply fresh Christmas decorations sell out at the beginning of the holiday season.
