Another big trend is sustainability. With people becoming more conscious of the impact they have on the environment, they are looking for gifts that are eco-friendly and will help reduce their carbon footprint. This could be anything from a reusable water bottle to a solar-powered phone charger.

If you are looking for a gift that is both personal and sustainable, try a subscription box. There are now boxes for everything from clothes to makeup to books, and you can often customize them to suit the recipient’s taste. This is a great way to give a gift that keeps on giving, and you can be sure they will appreciate it. For these kinds of gifts, offer to pay for a full-year subscription so as to see if the recipient appreciates the gift. Then they can renew the subscription after the year is over so it will no longer be your burden after the initial purchase was made.

If you know someone who is health-conscious or trying to eat better, look for gifts that fit into their lifestyle. This could be anything from an organic fruit basket to a subscription to a healthy cooking magazine. Make sure that the goodies you gift to them are safe to eat for their allergies and fit all of their dietary restrictions.
Sweets are also an amazing gift for the upcoming season, things like Christmas treat boxes or goodie baskets are always appreciated by the whole family.
