Whether it’s Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday, or any gift-giving day in between, it can be hard to choose the perfect gift for everyone in the family.
That’s why many people leave their gift shopping until the very last minute, then have to struggle to not only find a gift but also to get it wrapped and to the recipient on time.
In reality, from eco-friendly gifts such as laundry detergent to jewelry that any woman would love, and from essential oils to sports tickets, the smart gifts to give everyone in your family are out there—you just have to know where to find them. Keep reading below for a few suggestions for smart gifts for each of your family members.
1. Gifts For The Eco-Conscious
While it can be tricky to shop for an eco-conscious family member, it’s not impossible. You could start with a container of eco friendly laundry detergent.
This detergent type gets out stains, is phosphate-free, environmentally friendly, and a friendly laundry detergent for those with sensitive skin.
If you have a family member who is worried about their environmental impact on the earth, this eco-friendly laundry detergent will be the perfect gift.
Besides detergent, other options include a zero waste kit, a reusable notebook, cork products, and a basket full of detergent and cleaning supplies that are fragrance-free or have a light fragrance and are eco-friendly as well.
2. Gifts For Jewelry Lovers
Some people, such as mothers, sisters, and significant others, love receiving jewelry as gifts, so you can probably give every female on your gift list the gift of jewelry, and they’ll be thrilled.
For example, if you live in the Timonium, Ellicott City, or even Annapolis, there are professional jewelers in Baltimore with plenty of jewelry to choose from.
From diamond earrings to pendants on silver chains and from diamond engagement rings to estate jewelry, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
Have each piece of jewelry wrapped up in a pretty little package, and you’ll have the females on your list bought for.
In fact, you can probably add a piece of jewelry to your eco-friendly family members’ detergent basket as well, for an added surprise.
As long as the detergent has no phosphates, no dyes, and no parabens in the strips, the jewelry will make them happy as well, so what’s not to love?
3. Gifts For The Candle Lover
Everyone has a candle lover in their life. Whether it’s wax melts, essential oils, or a little of everything, including candles, you can always find a gift for a candle lover.
You can even gift your candle lover with a subscription to one of the popular candle boxes, which feature candles, wax melts, and essential oils.
As a side note, if you decide to include essential oils, candles, and wax melts in the detergent box of your eco-conscious family member, just make sure they are eco-friendly first.
Candles are the perfect gift for every candle lover on your list, whether they’re female or male, everyone loves their home to smell nice.
4. Gifts For Book Lovers
There are so many different gifts out there for book lovers that it’s hard to name them all. Of course, books would be the top option on the list, but bookmarks, e-readers, and e-books would run a close second.
If you’re not sure who your book lovers’ favorite authors are, give them a gift card instead, they’ll be just as happy to purchase their own books with it.
These are just a few of the smart gifts you can get everyone in your family this year. See? Shopping for family members’ gifts isn’t hard—you just have to know where to look.
