Is there someone in your family, social, or professional circle who does not celebrate Christmas? You don’t have to skip over such an individual when the holidays roll around. Select one of the gifts suggested below and the individual in your life who does not participate in the Christmas celebration just might feel a little bit of the holiday spirit thanks to your generosity.
When in doubt, opt for food. After all, everyone has to eat, regardless of whether they celebrate Christmas or other holidays. If you are uncertain as to what the individual in question enjoys eating, do some digging. Contact his or her family members, friends, and other acquaintances either in-person or through social media to find out which food item is best. Be a little more creative than buying the conventional Christmas present of fruitcake. A food item such as petits fours, a coffee of the month subscription, or a food/beverage that was recently brought to market will be much appreciated.
A Table Lamp or Another Piece of Home Decor
Just about everyone loves to add some touches to their home decor. In particular, people from all walks of life appreciate lamps. A piece of furniture, decor piece, lamp, or other household item provides actual utility.
A Donation in Their Name
If the person in question has everything they need, do not buy them yet another item that will likely collect dust. Instead, make a donation in the gift recipient’s name so someone can benefit from your altruism. Though donating to a charity or another cause in someone’s name won’t provide that person with any sort of product or service that enhances the quality of life, it will certainly make them feel good. As is often said, giving is the best gift of all. Your generous donation just might inspire the person on your holiday shopping list to make a matching donation or possibly inspire the recipient of the donation to give back in their own way at some point down the line.
Be Creative With Your Holiday Gift Selection
Above all, your holiday gifts should bring joy to recipients. Spend a little bit of time thinking about the perfect gift for the individual in question before plunking down your hard-earned money. Choose wisely and you will spread the holiday cheer even to those who do not celebrate Christmas.
