Finding just the right present can be a real challenge. Fortunately, retailers are constantly coming up with fun new ideas for small business that will enable you to come up with something for even the pickiest person on your list. If you can imagine it, chances are it is available for purchase.
THE ULTIMATE CHEESY CHOICE
Whether they are sweet on Swiss or crazy for camembert, your friend will go nuts over a little gizmo that enables them to melt their favorite cheese on the stove and spread it over the leftovers food item of their choice. The non-stick surface makes the clean-up of this unique gadget a breeze.
FOR THE LOSER IN YOUR LIFE
No doubt, you know someone who is constantly misplacing things. Whether it’s the remote control, their keys or their mobile phone, you can now give them a solution that really works. There is now a Bluetooth-enabled tag that can be connected to the item in question. When it’s lost, the person can use the accompanying app to play a sound that will enable it to be instantly located even if it is buried deep in their couch cushions.
WHISKEY LOVERS REJOICE
For the potent potable lover, a bottle of their favorite fire water might have been enough in the past. Now you can kick it up a few notches by giving them a 2- or 5-liter oak barrel that will enable them to age their favorite whiskey at home.
LIGHT UP SOMEONE’S LIFE
Are you in a long-distance relationship, or do you miss someone a lot? Give them one of a matched pair of high-tech lamps. When you touch yours, theirs lights up thanks to the app to which they are connected. When they respond in kind, your day will be brightened as well.
THE GIFT THAT GIVES YEAR-ROUND
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a present that kept on giving throughout the year? A subscription can do just that, and it’s not just for magazines anymore. Enroll your loved one in a cigar club, wine, beer or even chocolate of the month subscription plan. They’ll feel like it’s Christmas every 30 days, and they will appreciate all of the thought that went into their customized gift.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE FAN
Chocolate is the universal pick-me-up that can be molded into an infinite array of shapes and flavors. That’s good news for you and the candy fan on your list. While a delicious box of confections is never a bad thing, you can kick it up a few levels with a selection of chocolate-infused liqueurs, chocolate-scented soaps and candles and even a life-sized, anatomically correct chocolate skull.
FOR THE PET LOVER
The quickest way to some people’s hearts is by giving something to the animals with whom they share their lives. From customized bowls to unique toys, there’s a world of options out there for the dog, cat or bird fan in your life.
Taking time to pick out just the right item is what separates a mediocre present from a memorable one. Just relax, think about the qualities you love in your friend and you are sure to come up with the perfect idea.
