Get a Gift Receipt
Make sure to get a gift receipt for whatever you buy for the person in your life that is hard to shop for. Put the gift receipt into a Christmas card that goes along with the gift. That way, if the person already has one, or doesn’t like the gift, he or she will have an easier time returning it.

Homemade Christmas Cookies
Holiday treats make a great gift for loved ones that don’t like to bake. For best results, make sure you are aware of your loved one’s food allergies and dietary restrictions. Bake a batch of Christmas cookies just for him or her. Those that have to limit the foods they consume, in order to avoid getting sick, will be pleased with a batch of “safe” Christmas cookies!

Gift Cards
You can’t really go wrong with a gift card! Pick a store that you know the person likes to shop at. Chances are they will be able to find something they like in a store that they regularly choose to shop at. A gift card makes it easy to shop for the person who has “everything”.

Everyone needs a new pair of slippers, eventually. This might not be the most exciting gift imaginable. However, it is functional. It serves a specific purpose and is something your loved one can wear. Giving a gift that helps a person stay warm during the winter is a great way to show that you care. For best results, select a pair of slippers that look nice and is appropriate for adults. Avoid the slippers that are made to look like animals. Some adults won’t wear those!

Start by picking out a calendar that matches one of the person’s interests. Do you know what kind of calendar they are using this year? See if you can find one like that for the new year.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
