Has gift-giving lost its appeal? Many people are wondering just this, as it is so easy to have products delivered to one’s door the next day, to order something online, or to duplicate an item that a friend or family member already has. Plus, many people struggle with smaller living spaces and wanderlust that makes the accumulation of material goods more difficult. How to embrace the spirit of giving without a pile of material junk? Consider these creative gift ideas!

Favors: Not Just for Parties
A great gift for the person who has everything is something they probably lack: Time! Consider gifting favors to your family and friends, whether it’s driving the school carpool for a week, offering to pet-sit, or shoveling snow during a downpour. For a fun gifting experience, write or draw a cute “coupon” on nice stationary, and wrap it up like a gift card just from you!

Skilled Service:
You can do a lot for friends and family this holiday season, but unless you’re a skilled professional with industry-standard tools, there are some favors you just can’t handle. For example, if you have a friend who loves wild hair styles, consider buying a gift certificate for a trendy hair stylist. If you know your friend loves a clean home, but lacks the time or equipment to get all the nooks and crannies, hire the services of an outdoor cleaning company in New Jersey! A new piece of jewelry may be sparkly, but clean windows shine even brighter.

Cherish Quality Time
If your friends and family don’t need their lives made any easier, maybe what they need most is quality time with you! Book a fun experience like seeing a new play or movie, schedule dinner dates, or just find time to spend together.
