'Tis the Season

Yes, it tis’ the season for gift giving. We are all searching for ultimate gift for those we love. But what do you get for all of those people in your lives who have everything? You know like parents and grandparents. They just don’t need anything or really want anything.  Here are a couple of suggests that I have for those hard to buy for individuals.

1.       The donation.  Is there something your family member is passionate about? Do they love bird watching? Or is their passion children? There are loads of great charities that you can make a donation to in your family member’s name. Whether supporting a child through World Vision, or The Nature Conservancy, this gift is one that will keep giving for ages.

2.       The parent or grandparent coupon book. This one will take a little creativity on your part, but put together a coupon book for your parent to redeem throughout the year. You can include an evening at the movies, a picnic, or a day fishing. The point of the coupon book is to provide you and your loved one the ability to spend quality time together. It’s a gift that will keep giving throughout the year.

3.       Give your parents tickets to an event they will enjoy. If your dad is a sports lover? Tickets to a local team might make him happy. If you have minor league teams in your area season tickets might be awesome! Do your parents love to learn new things? Maybe there is a really cool exhibit coming to a museum in a nearby city.

Keep in mind that gifts don’t always have to be a lot more than an object that is sent to the local charity shop when your parents do their spring cleaning. A gift can be something simple as something you share with your loved ones.


  1. those are some excellent options! you gave me a great idea! thanks :)

  2. I really like the idea of giving gifts in the category of experiences that someone wouldn't otherwise be able to have. I think my husband and I might be taking my little sisters ice skating as a family gift.
