Have you ever struggled with what to buy your significant other, family, or friend for the holidays? This time of year standards and expectations are high: we want to make it the perfect gift that they will love. There are so many options and not as much time. Well here is a solution to your problem! It is gift giving season and the time or secret Santa and White Elephant is here. From small to large and cheap to spendy, here are some ideas on what to get the people in your life.

The Perfect Gift for your Mom
Getting a gift for your mom can be a stressful thing. Everyone wants to get their mom the perfect gift for all she does. Jewelry, mugs, a picture frame, and even workout clothes are just a few ideas that could work. A necklace that says “The Best Mom” or “I love you, Mom” is always a sweet gesture, showing how much you appreciate her and whenever you’re apart she can think of you. Etsy.com offers many options in the jewelry department. Another possibility is a picture framed of you and your mother can also be wonderful gift. It may not seem like much, but to her, it means everything. Personalized frames, pre-made, are available on Etsy.com as well. For the mothers who need an adult comfort beverage after a long day, a cute idea would be to get her a personalized wine glass or Tumblr. A “Mama needs wine” glass would be a funny and practical gift and you can purchase it for as little as $9.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond! A basket full of gifts for your mom is also a wonderful idea to make her feel special during the holidays. You could include a candle from Bath and Body Works or Target, a Face Mask, a coffee mug that says “Best Mom”, and her favorite candy! This is a great way to show your mom how special she is to you.

Siblings: The Challenge
A gift for your brother or sister can be tricky as well. Some ideas for sister(s) are bath salts, perfume, makeup, or even gift cards. Perfume from bath and body works is always a cute idea for a sister and so are holiday scented bath salts. “Perfume and lotion is always my favorite thing to get as a gift. I could always use more!” says Hallie Gentry, Sophomore at Lafayette High School. Makeup is also a good gift because what girl can’t use more makeup? Makeup can be bought from Ulta Beauty or even Target! Gift cards may not seem as thoughtful but they can be. Gift cards to your sister’s favorite place can show you know her and what she likes.

Gifts for a brother could be a watch, clothes from Nike or Under Armour, or gift cards can be a good gift as well. If you are willing to spend a little more money, a watch is always a good gift for a brother. Watches from Fossil or Shark watches are a great gift idea. Clothes are also a useful gift for a brother because boys always seem to need more clothes. Gym shorts or new t-shirts from Nike or Under Armour are the most popular brands boys tend to wear. Shoes from those stores as well would be a nice gesture. “I like it when my sister gives me Nike shorts each year because I always need more of them,” said Luke Clark, Junior at Lafayette High School. Gift cards can be easy enabling your brother(s) to buy what they want no need for you to guess what they like or want.

Significant Others: The perfect gift
Sometimes when picking the right gift for someone you like or love, can be a tricky thing. You want to get the perfect gift to show how much you care for them and what they mean to you. You don’t always have to buy a significant other something expensive to show how much you care for them, you can always make a craft instead. Something like “52 reasons why I love you” on a deck of cards or letters of how much you love your significant other. Even small gifts like candy or a gift cards can always be a cute gesture towards someone you like!
