5 Gift Ideas That Will Make Life Easier For Busy People
Christmas is coming and it’s time to gather gift ideas
It’s that time of year again. Every November and December (earlier for some people) we look for gift ideas that will make others smile. A new device? Perfume? Jewellery? A bike? Socks? Stuff, stuff, and more stuff.
But what if you said no to material gifts and gave something useful – something that would really help to make someone’s life easier? Being too busy and highly stressed is a common trait these days, so why not relieve the pressure a little?
We’ve got 5 gift ideas that will make life easier for someone special (perhaps that person is yourself) so give freely this holiday season or any time you’re looking for the perfect present.
Gift Ideas That Lighten the Load
Gift Idea: Cleaning Services
If there’s ever a service that everyone would love to receive as a gift, it’s got to be cleaning. Nobody likes the thoughts of doing cleaning chores on their day off, and office staff certainly don’t want scrubbing the toilets on their job description.
At home, there’s always something that needs attention, so it’s fair to say a gift idea that allows the recipient to put their feet up or do something they enjoy more than cleaning the ceiling fans or mopping the floors is sure to be well received any time of the year.
A Delicious Present: Meal Delivery
Meal planning, shopping and cooking are right up their with the most dreaded domestic duties for busy people. Some may love to plan, shop, and cook, but if you’re working all day the last thing you want to do is a supermarket run at five o’clock.
It’s no wonder meal delivery services like Hello Fresh and Marley Spoon are ever-popular these days. If you’ve never heard of these services, they are pre-planned and packaged meal supplies delivered straight to your door and ready to cook. They come with easy-to-follow recipes that will have dinner on the table within 35 minutes. What more could you ask for?
Give: Supermarket Vouchers
Staying in the consumable gift idea range, giving supermarket vouchers is another way to give something ultra-useful. We all need to eat and just because it’s a gift card for a grocery store doesn’t mean they have to buy boring pantry staples. Most shops these days carry household goods, health and beauty products, and even socks and undies. The point is that you’re giving a token of appreciation that appeals to everyone. So what if they spend it all on chocolate. At least they’ll get the brand they love the most. And if the recipient needs to spend it on pantry items and daily food stuffs, take pleasure knowing you’ve lighten a financial load for someone – if only temporarily.
Gift Idea: Pampering Sessions
Making life easier for someone is not always…well, easy. We all struggle at some point in our lives, but don’t always tell people about it. Today, it’s more and more common to just soldier on and push through the tough times, which is not always a good thing.
But self-care is slowly becoming ‘a thing’. Self-care means taking care of yourself. Take the afternoon off. Go to the beauty salon. Get a massage. Do the things you enjoy, if only for an hour a week. Make the time. Gifting vouchers for massages, manicures, facials, yoga classes, or float tank therapy encourages self-care.
The Gift That Everyone Loves: Cash
This may not be the most popular gift idea out there, but let’s face it, we all need money. Giving money is often considered impersonal and cold, but you can’t deny it’s useful. Sure, cash won’t always be an appropriate gift for everyone, but for many people, a note tucked into a card will be just the thing they’d been hoping for.
Best people to gift money to:
Employees love a cash bonus at Christmas
Teenagers always need more pocket money
Hard-to-buy-for people – let them choose their own gift
Long distance loved ones – say no to posting parcels
Anyone who could use a little extra
