Surprise Someone with a Gift That Says You Care

Some people only know how to give, and they give without ever asking for anything in return.. During these challenging times, so many of our friends and family are still heading out each day for work. Many parents around the world are pulling round-the-clock shifts to make homes happy and comfortable places to live in. While many celebrations can be put on hold, the Coronavirus pandemic isn't a reason strong enough to not celebrate the people you love. You don’t even need an occasion for that!  A word of caution though, if you are planning to order a gift online, do not wait to do last-minute purchasing -- even the biggest retailers and stores cannot guarantee delivery in these uncertain times.

To help you, we have compiled this list of a few thoughtful gift ideas for parents, friends, neighbors or co-workers.

A Customized Gift Basket

Gift baskets make excellent gifts. Baskets contain several different items and thus, your mother or best friend is bound to like at least a few of them. Toiletries, such as shampoos and lotions, scented candles, coffee, wine, chocolates, cookies, cakes, and other edible items are popular choices for gift baskets. Many online stores even allow buyers to customize their baskets and add items that they think the recipient will like or enjoy best. If you can find an online store that allows customization, nothing's better.

Tickets to a Show or Event

Imagine the joy on their face when the unexpected becomes a reality – surprising someone with tickets to a show or exhibit is an art of its own. It's more than just a piece of paper; it's an invitation to a world of captivating performances to see an artist like Morgan Wallen, for example, or breath taking displays. The anticipation builds with every passing moment until that exhilarating day arrives, and they step into a realm of entertainment or culture they might never have experienced otherwise. In a world filled with digital communication, gifting someone an immersive and tangible experience like this not only creates unforgettable memories but also strengthens the bond between you. So, why not add a touch of excitement to life by gifting the magic of live entertainment?

Terrarium Candles

If the gift recipient loves plants and little things that beautify a home, a terrarium candle is a perfect gift for them. Terrarium candles are sweet-scented candles with a succulent sitting inside them. These candles come in different scents and feature a wide variety of plants. More importantly, if you do not want to order from outside, you can always make a terrarium candle at home if you're crafty.

Fitness Tracker

Wearable fitness trackers have become quite a rage. Once clipped on a person's wrist, they provide accurate information about the steps taken in a day, calorie intake, resting heart rate, sleep time, weight loss, etc. Some of the fitness trackers can even be connected to a phone, allowing users to respond to messages while working. Whether your loved one is a fitness enthusiast or not, a fitness tracker will certainly teach them to take better care of themselves. More importantly, fitness trackers are available in all budgets.

It's hard to find a woman who does not love jewelry. Irrespective of however many bracelets and necklaces they have, there will always be another one that they would want to add to their collection. Surprise your loved one with a jewelry piece they have long coveted. If you do not know what's on their list, surprise them with a personalized bracelet or pendant with their name on it.

Beauty Subscription Box For Moms 

All that work around the house can leave a woman's skin feeling dull and dry. It is no surprise that women enjoy looking pretty. However, they easily let go of her wishes and desires to make sure her family is giving the best of everything. A beauty subscription box could be your way of telling your mother you care about her desires as much as she cares about your needs. With a beauty box, she will be able to try all the new and good makeup products in the market and purchase the ones that suit her skin the best.

Photo Collage For Parents

At the heart of everything a parent does is at the thought of their children. A parent's love is selfless and thus, many value things that appeal to their emotional side more than things that appeal to their materialistic side. If your parent is the kind who holds onto happy memories for good and bad days, a photo collage would make the perfect gift for them. It will also give you the chance to go back into the memory lane and pick out the most beautiful memories from your past. Any parent would treasure this gift.
