It’s the Christmas season. Can you believe it’s already here? Christmas means snow and hot chocolate, family get-togethers, singing favorite holiday songs, and gift giving. Unfortunately, that last item on the list—getting those perfect gifts for everyone—can be one of the most stress-inducing tasks you’ll face all year.
When you give a gift, you want it to be appreciated. But at a certain point, your parents or your grandparents already seem to have everything they want and need. When you ask them, “What do you want for Christmas?” they brush the question aside. This is where the stress comes in. What gift do you get for someone who has everything?
But don’t despair. While many people see no use in accumulating more electronics, books, or cute knickknacks, that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate a gift that has a more heartfelt source than an online sales center.
Give the gift of memories
Instead of spending money or time on something that will just go and sit on a shelf, consider investing in a legacy product like the documentary film package offered by Fjor Films. Not only will Grandma or Grandpa be more excited to receive a beautifully edited documentary film about their lives, but a gift like this can be a treasure for the whole family to enjoy. Visit our products page to learn more about the documentary package and contact us with any questions.
Give a gift of song
Do you or your children have a musical talent? Instead of buying a CD of Christmas tunes off the shelf, consider recording your own Christmas album and sharing it during the holidays. Nothing brings the holiday spirit more than beautiful music. Share a favorite self-made recording with a family member this Christmas.
Give a gift of time
Instead of wracking your brain trying to come up with a gift for someone who already has everything, give a gift of quality time. Offer a coupon for a backrub, help cooking a favorite recipe, or just sitting in a comfy armchair and talking about the good times. For parents and grandparents, this gift may mean more than anything you could buy with your credit card.
All of these ideas can be the perfect way to spice up the holiday season, but don’t procrastinate thinking, “That’s a good idea. I’ll try that next year.”
Give a gift this year that will be special.
