This year, Americans are looking at an average spending of $885 on Christmas gifts. After all, for many of us, it’s that one time of the year we can afford to spend a bit more for others.
Now the question is, how’s the gift shopping going for the people on your list? Keep in mind that an average shopper goes on at least four buying trips during the holidays. Combined, these total to about 14 hours of shopping.
That’s why it’s never too early to start getting your loved ones those gifts. Especially if you need gift delivery services for those who live miles and miles from you.
At a loss for what to get them? Don’t worry. We’ve done the research so you don’t have to.
Use this guide to figure out what to get your loved ones this Christmas!
A Craft Beer Bucket
Fun Fact: In 2017, craft beer sales reached a whopping total of $26 billion. That’s why these thirst-quenching beverages now account for 23% of the beer market!
This also tells us that Americans no doubt love craft beer, and it’s likely your loved ones do to. So, make their holidays even more fun by having a bucket full of craft beer delivered to their doorstep!
With almost 6,300 craft breweries throughout the country, you’ve got a lot of options. If you have time, you can handpick which ales and pales would go into the package. You may want to take it a notch higher by throwing in a few snacks too!
Don’t worry if you don’t have time, as you’ll find stores that already have pre-packaged gift items like this. Either way, you only have to make sure you choose a reputable and reliable courier service. That way, your loved one wouldn’t end up with a leaking bucket filled with expensive shards of glass.
A Gourmet Cheese and Wine Crate
Do some of the folks in your list fancy wine more than beer? Then wow them with a gourmet cheese and wine package delivery to their homes!
As with the craft beer bucket, you can hand pick the whites and reds (as well as the yellow stuff) yourself. After getting them wrapped tight and snug in a pretty crate, you can have them delivered on the same day.
Going with a pre-packaged cheese and wine set? Then make sure the merchant guarantees on-time delivery. While aged cheese and wine are great, you don’t want your gift recipient to receive spoiled stuff.
A Go-Nuts-on-Nuts Snack Pack
If your fam and friends are like 40% of the U.S. population, then they’re likely nut lovers. That makes packages filled to the brim with them perfect gifts for the holidays.
Plus, you’ll do them and their health a favor by gifting these seeds/fruits. They’re a crucial part of the U.S. dietary guidelines after all.
When building your own snack pack gift box, include almonds, pistachios, and walnuts. These are some of the healthiest (and tastiest) of their kind. Cashews, pecans, and macadamia nuts are also great additions.
Like everything else on this list, you’ll also find pre-packaged gourmet nut baskets. If you’ll opt for this route, make sure they include as many of the nuts above.
A Sweet Tooth Loot
There’s someone (or several) on your list likely into candies and chocolates. They would never say no to sweet tooth loot filled with their favorite goodies!
It’s a timeless gift idea that anyone can enjoy, even by the most modern men and women in your life. Make sure you base your choices of sweet gifts to deliver on their palate, not yours.
The gourmets in your life would be sure to appreciate items from Godiva and Ghirardelli. You may also want to add Dolcetto Chocolates to the list.
Or, you can take them to a trip down memory lane by picking nostalgia-inspiring candies. Tootsie Rolls, M&M’s, Charleston Chew Bars, Baby Ruths, and Reese’s are some great ideas.
Keep in mind that these food items are heat-sensitive, so it’s vital to choose the right courier. It’s best to have them on a same-day package delivery so as not to compromise the contents.
The Man Can
Whoever said men don’t look after themselves the same way women do was wrong. But, it doesn’t hurt to shower them with health and care products like scrub soaps and shaving gels. Get some aftershaves. hand butter, beard oil and balm, as well as trimmers and scissors to complete the package.
To add a touch of “manliness” to your gift, consider packing them in a tin, paint can-like container. Look for reusable ones. This would save them the hassle of getting a new organizer for their future care essentials.
The Ultimate Bath and Body Care Package
Only a few other things can spell care and affection like a complete bath and body care package. Fill it with deep cleansing body wash and creams, hand and foot butter, and bubble bath soaps. Add in a couple of lip balms, a natural bath sponge, pumice stone, and hairbrush.
You’d want a durable basket or box for these though, especially since it’ll likely get wet. You’ll find wooden containers in nice water-resistant finishes that’ll do the trick.
A Gourmet Pizza Making Set
More than eight in 10 Americans say they’d give up something for a year’s supply of free pizza deliveries. What’s even more shocking is that some of them say this “something” can be bacon or coffee!
This shows how much folks in the U.S. love pizza, and chances are, almost everyone on your list does too! So, this holiday season, take their love for pizza to a whole new level with a gourmet pizza making set.
Start by including quality crust-making ingredients, artisan sauces, and pepperoni sticks. A few tin cans of gourmet spices would also help them hone their pizza-making skills. Don’t forget to throw in a pizza cutter too.
The Classic Flowers and Chocolate Duo
Still at a loss for holiday delivery ideas? If you still have a female friend in your list without a gift, then go with the classic flowers and chocolates. Everyone has a romantic in them, so as long as you choose what exactly goes into them, they’re sure to appreciate it.
