With the holidays upon us, shoppers everywhere are once again agonizing over what to get their family and friends. While holiday shopping once consisted of a necktie for Dad, a comfy robe for Mom and some toys for the kids, today’s holiday shopping list is much more complicated than that. What gifts to buy people is certainly a #FirstWorldProblem!
Each and every family or circle of friends has its own unique identity, and each member within those groups is his or her own individual. For those with a holiday shopping list on which no two people are the same, consider the following gift ideas to ensure everyone on your list enjoys a happy holiday season.

The Busy Woman On-the-Go
Today’s woman is busier and more on-the-go than ever before. And “Fit Bits,” or similar activity trackers, are on point. People become obsessed with keeping track of their steps-per-day, the activity, and even their sleep patterns on these little devices that can be worn 24-7. Check out the designs and options of the most popular brand: Fit Bit.
The Wine Lover
Few hobbies taste as good as developing an affinity and knowledge of the wines of the world. With their masses growing, wine connoisseurs have now infiltrated families everywhere. This holiday season, you could give your wine loving family or friend a gift certificate to a “make-your-wine” place.

AND a wine lovers Christmas ornament – sounds like a great wine-themed gift basket in the making!
Everyone is a food critic but some people are serious at-home chefs. Maybe you know one? What do you get the chef-de-cuisine foodie gourmand? Do they need another recipe book? Probably not!

These are not essential kitchen tools but they can make cooking even more fun for the foodie!

Some local cheese shop or chocolate stores will put together gift baskets at various price-points full of goodies that you can then deliver to your clients during the holiday season. That’s a good way to recognize their support throughout the year. We offer a few options that can be personalized for your special clients. Here are three top ideas:
