CornerBowBeaches|life Gift Suggestions and Ideas at Local Shops

  1. A true gift should be looked for having the receiving person in mind. It should be unique, special and show that you care. It’s not about how much you buy or spend.
  2. Things are easy to get, more affordable than ever, but good things will stand out and last for many years to enjoy and remember.
  3. Take this time to make each and everyone on your holiday list feel special, either through goods or services, you know them best.

Holiday shopping can be fun, but it can also be challenging. You don’t have to go far to find new gift ideas. Large or small, your local retailers have a wealth of goodies, right at your doorstep to help you check off everything from your holiday shopping list. And while you are out, don’t forget to pick up something for yourself.

Gift Cards

GiftGuide_gift_card_1Gift Cards are a popular and practical gift choice, however, 35% of are never used. Your time and money would be unappreciated, your gift receiver will not benefit from it, and the businesses you purchased it from will lose the opportunity to serve the person you care for. How can you change that?

  1. Be sure the gift card will interest the receiver (not what you would like).
  2. To show someone something special, arrange to go together, and share the experience.
  3. The gift can be a massage or spa treatment, dining at a rest-aurant, art classes, fitness, memberships and subscriptions.
  4. Larger items can be gifted with other family members or friends. If you know that is what would make a lasting impact.
