Coming up with creative gift ideas is somewhat of an art form. And as with any other type of art, some of us just aren’t that good at it. If you’re hoping to get through the holidays without giving someone their worst gift ever, consider these ideas:

Photos and Photo Memories People cherish photo gifts because people cherish the memories in the photos

Experience Gifts  If you buy someone a gift you never know if it is being used. But if you take them somewhere or gift an experience, they might just remember the occasion forever.

Personalized Gifts Most people love a gift that has been personalized.

Books or Knowledge a good book is never a bad option for gift giving. Or consider giving a course or tutorial.

High-Quality Foods, Beer or Wine Sometimes the best gifts are ones people wouldn’t buy for themselves. And since everybody loves delicious and decadent consumables, food, beer and wine make the perfect gift that no one throws away.

Gift Cards or Cash If you can’t find a gift for that special someone, consider giving cold, hard cash or gift cards instead.

Holiday Décor or Ornaments Buying a holiday gift for someone special, to be used year after year when they decorate their home, will be treasured.
