If the holidays have you worried about your abilities as a gift giver, we’ve got you covered. Did you know that giving is a great way to promote happiness and reduce stress? Let our talented team at Elements Massage Moon Valley guide you through the spirit of giving with these tips at being a great gift giver:
- Plan Ahead
To steer clear of the stress, it’s appropriate to plan ahead. What we mean by this is you should consider your list of individuals and brainstorm in advance what each person’s interests are and jot down a few things that you think they’d find value in.
- Don’t Focus on Price
Too often people think that they need to give something with a big price tag. In fact, the opposite is more often true. This time of the year is all about being thoughtful so instead put your worries about money aside and get creative.
We love taking a little extra step to give someone something slightly normal, like chocolate or a bottle of wine, and personalize it in a way that makes it special. Think of ribbons and homemade wrapping paper with a sweet note tucked in saying happy holidays.
- Consider Experiences
Remember that gifts don’t have to be physical objects. Instead, they can be more experiential. One of our favorite go-to presents for everyone is an Elements Massage gift card for a relaxing massage with one of our expert massage therapists.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Ask
There’s always that one person on your list that is difficult to buy for. In these scenarios, we believe that it’s OK to ask a friend for help. Sometimes it helps to have a second party help you figure out your thoughtful gesture.
