Holiday Gift Guide for the New Normal

The new normal calls for new gifts. With the holiday season just around the corner, you may already be wondering about the presents you'll give to the people close to your heart. But given how we're living in a time where social distancing is a must, you may want to rethink about the items you're going to include in your shopping list. 

It's a good thing that fast shipping and delivery is readily available and allows us to make our loved ones feel special when we can't see them in person. From self-care goods to digital subscriptions, here are some holiday gift ideas you may want to consider:

Subscription to meditation apps

Meditation and mindfulness apps have seen a surge since the pandemic struck. With people experiencing a spike in anxiety and stress due to the situation, it's not surprising that many have resorted to these apps to find some semblance of peace and calm. This is precisely why a subscription to these apps makes for a perfect gift, considering how they can help your loved ones alleviate their stress. Writer Jess Carpenter's review of the Calm app notes that its mind exercises, meditation guides, and sleep stories can do wonders to one's productivity and anxiety levels and can even aid in training your mind to focus. Seeing as subscriptions to these types of digital experiences can be costly, gifting them to someone dear to you will not go unnoticed.

Skincare items

Skincare is becoming more popular as a form of self-care in the new normal, making skincare items the ideal gift not only this upcoming holiday season but also the whole year-round. And when it comes to choosing which skincare item to gift, it's best to go for those that do more than just one thing. A popular choice for gifts is multipurpose creams, as they pack a variety of benefits in a single product. Pretty Me's review of AR Vitamin E cream highlights its several benefits, which include lightening dark circles, reducing the appearance of dark spots and pimples marks, and even improving the moisture levels of the skin. By gifting a versatile product like this, you're bound to tick at least one of the receiver's skincare goals.

House plants or flower grow kits

Flowers are a classic present for pretty much every occasion, but houseplants and flower grow kits make for an even better surprise. With people finding themselves yearning for the great outdoors more than ever, giving them a house plant or a flower grow kit allows them to stay connected to nature even when they're hunkered down at home. You're essentially giving them a hobby, too, since they'll have to cultivate the plant and eventually enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Personalized products

In a previous post, Adam Gansky stated how personalized gifts are a great way to make people feel special. But instead of giving something generic like a mug with your pal's name on it, how about a customized puzzle instead? A report from USA Today claims that puzzles have been among the most popular hobbies during lockdown as they're a welcome distraction from the barrage of grim headlines and serve as a creative outlet at the same time. So instead of picking up a run-of-the-mill puzzle from the store, you can add a fun and unique touch to the gift by infusing a personal touch. And if you want to give something useful but personalized at the same time, a double-duty item like our 2D Night Light is ideal. Both parts stunning and practical, it features a laser-etched custom photo night light that beams beautifully in the dark. With the built-in LED, it'll last for up to 10 years.

Personalized products can take quite a bit of time to prepare, as they are not the generic off the shelf items. Make sure to order in advance, and check if they deliver. Here at The 3D Gift, we have fast shipping and we deliver straight to your doorstep for a hassle-free transaction. Holiday shopping should be as stress free as possible!
