On this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Marc talks about the holiday decor he picked from Giant Tiger. Check out the video above for some fun gift ideas or keep reading for our expert tips on gift giving.
Stick to a budget
While it can be tempting to go all out when buying gifts for those you care about, going overboard and spending too much can end up can end up putting pressure on the receiver to reciprocate. Instead, decide on a budget before you shop and stick to it. Remember, it’s the thought that counts.
Include a gift receipt
No matter how great you think your gift is, value is in the eye of the beholder. To avoid any awkwardness or hurt feelings, simply provide a gift receipt (if possible) along with your gift. That way, there’s no questions asked if your receiver would like to return or exchange.
Gift things that are consumable
We live in the age of consumerism and over-consumption, so if you give a gift that’s edible or consumable, you’re giving a gift to the planet as well. To boot, consumable gifts can be incredibly thoughtful. Some ideas include baked goods and bath bombs.
This can mean many things. If you don’t mind spending some money, you can give a gift card to taking a free class, such as a yoga class or a pottery class. If you’re on a budget or have agreed upon a budget-friendly holiday season with your friends and/or family, consider giving the gift of your time, in the form of a hike, picnic, or a DIY spa day.
