4 Ideas for Spicing up Your Gift Giving This Holiday Season


The more you get familiar with your loved ones, the more you tend to slack on your gift giving. It can be tempting to just get the same boring gifts that you normally do year after year, but no one is going to have any fun from opening their presents on Christmas morning. While there are plenty of ways you can show your affection for your loved ones, sometimes it’s nice to really show your thoughtfulness and affection with a thoughtfully chosen gift, rather than just saying it.



Get a Spicy Cocktail Recipe Book


If you’re looking for ways to make a splash this holiday season, try getting your loved one a cocktail recipe book and then trying out a few of the recipes to see which ideas you like the best. Spice & Ice by Kara Newman is a great cookbook for checking out recipes that take unusual and spicy flavors like ginger, wasabi, and chilies, and make them into delicious drinks to for your sampling enjoyment. The book is a bargain way to have some fun with your holiday and the following days of vacation.


Pick Something Intimate


If you’re in a long term relationship, you might be in need of a little something extra to get things moving. Picking out a fun pair of limited edition designer underwear from a luxury designer like VK Nagrani can be just the right thing you need to make your Christmas fun again. With their USA Woody style, you can really channel that patriotic spirit. Try their other graffiti patterned styles for another fun and unique look. We guarantee they’re a better gift to unwrap than another sleeve of golf balls.



Get Artsy with It


Another great idea for a fun Christmas gift is to give something that you’ve created yourself. While you don’t have to be the next Picasso, you can easily create something that carries meaning for both of you and show the amount of time and effort that you put in to creating a unique and memorable gift for your loved one. Pick up a canvas and some paint some your local art supply store and you’re good to go. If you’re looking for inspiration, try picking one of your loved one’s favorite paintings and creating your own personalized version of it, perhaps imputing some personal details from your relationship.


Go For the Experience Rather than the Item


 If you’re really not that talented in the art department, and its fine, many of us are not, you could try going for something experiential rather than something tangible. Handwrite the itinerary for the perfect day together and give it in an envelope. Make an appointment for a couple’s class trying out a funky exercise at your gym, sign up for a cooking class to learn how to cook Indian food, or do a sculpture seminar at a local art studio. No matter what activity you choose to sign up for, you’re bound to have a good time when you make the plans and just go for it.


With these fun four ideas for spicing up your gift giving, you should be all set to have the perfect holiday with your loved one. And with Christmas just a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about your preparation plans as soon as you can!
