The new year is just around the corner (literally) and it’s typically around this time where people are trying to start focusing on getting the things that they need to make sure they’re prepared.
Christmas is also around the corner, in fact, we are now less than a week away! If you know someone who’s all about prepping and planning for then new year and you haven’t gotten them any gifts yet, this is the perfect time to kill two birds with one stone! Right now is the best time to get some, if not all, all the items as their Christmas gift so that they won’t have to worry about it.
The five items below make the perfect gifts to help someone get a great jump start to the new year (and most are pretty easy to find).
A planner is one of the main things that people usually purchase when getting all of their items to start the new year. Gifting someone a planner will take a huge weight off of their plate and they can get a head start in thinking of what they want to do/have going on in January. The hardest part in gifting a planner is figuring out which kind and design to get. Does the person prefer digital or physical? What patterns do you think they would like on their planner? Making sure it’s a planner they’ll love isn’t easy, but it’ll be worth it in the end.
Highlighters are great for…well…highlighting! The person you’re gifting these to can use them to highlight any important events or notes in their planner. This would make a great stocking stuffer idea or you can pair them with another gift like the planner. There are also many different versions of highlighters as those thick bright lighters we grew up with are of the past! There are so many cute and slim highlighters that come in the cutest colors. The possibilites are endless!
Now this one is if you’ve really got the spending money and are feeling generous. For those who prefer to take the digital route of things, a tablet or Ipad makes the perfect gift. It’s also convenient if they prefer to not take a laptop with them everywhere to do work. Stores are still having deals, so you better jump on them!
4. Gratitude Journal
Gifting someone a gratitude journal helps ensure they’re starting the year off with gratitude from day one. Practicing grattitude is important and helps remind us to be thankful for all that we have. That person may just write down that they’re grateful you gifted them the journal!
5. A Whiteboard
With a whiteboard, the person can write down all of their goals, plans, and more but in a way that allows them to see it all every day. Some of us tend to write down our goals in a planner or in our phones and forget to look back at them (I am one of them). Writing and placing your goals where you have the chance to look at them daily could remind you what you’re working towards and how much you’ve accomplished. It’s also perfect if you’re gifting it to someone who prefers to draw out charts, graphs, etc.
For some, a few of these gifts may not seem as exciting or lame, but they fit for the ones who are always focused on putting their best foot forward into the next year. With these gifts, they’ll be doing just that!
Would you like it if anyone purchased you any of these items for Christmas?
