You see the familiar size box under the tree and you know you have another sweater to hide in the back of the closet. At this point, receiving the annual holiday sweater has become an inside joke, so instead of enduring yet another sweater moment, why not get creative with your holiday gifts? There are plenty of gifts you can give that don’t include sweaters!
Everyone loves to be pampered so why not give your significant other a day at the spa? Most day spas have gift certificates that can be used toward any service offered, which means your loved one can spend the day being pampered. Day spas offer facials, massages, waxing and many more great services, which can leave them feeling refreshed after a stressful holiday season.
At first, it may seem a bit odd to give the gift of house cleaning, but it can be quite a welcomed gift after the new year. Why not purchase a year’s worth of house cleaning for your significant other and take that one stress off of them? They can put their feet up while a maid service comes in and does the dirty work for them.
Personal Training and Gym Memberships
Why not give the gift of health? We always tend to over-indulge during the holidays, which can leave us feeling less than jovial when the new year swings into action. Why not combat the holiday weight gain and keep to your New Year’s resolution of being healthy with a new gym membership? A gym membership and even personal training sessions can help get rid of that holiday poundage. Be sure to get a membership for both of you, so you can be each other’s motivation to get healthy!
If another sweater simply will not do, there is always home improvement. Home improvement gifts can vary. You can get a gift certificate to your local home improvement store and let your significant other pick up the items they need. It is an easy gift, but it is a gift that most people would enjoy. If you want to step it up, why not give the gift of a new room? Couples can renovate their drab bathrooms or perhaps replace their kitchen countertops for the holidays. New granite countertops could get the new year started right. If there is a project, like replacing your old kitchen countertops with new granite countertops, that you have been contemplating, why not give it as a gift? It does beat getting another sweater!
You don’t need to endure another year of unwanted sweaters. Get creative! There are plenty of great gift ideas out there to make your holidays bright.
