Quality Time Together
We are all wrapped up in our own lives. How many directions are you pulled into? Kids? Aging parents? Work? With so many demands put upon us, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Personally, I think the best gift for someone who has everything is spending special moments with one another. That is priceless. Below are a list of things you can do with your people. Present them with a beautiful card indicating what you will be doing together including when, where, and how you will be spending time together.
Reminiscing while looking through old photos, VHS tapes, or cassettes. Bring over a batch of cookies with a cup of Java from your favorite barista. Or if they are more into imbibing, present them with a bottle of good wine or champagne along with a gift of wine glasses, Amazon Hand Painted Stemless Wine Glasses, or champagne flutes. Spend the day enjoying and revering in the past.
Watch a favorite movie together. Again, present them with a card indicating your intentions. If you do not know their favorite movie, introduce them to one of yours. Or have a discussion about different genres and choose one that is agreeable to both of you. Supply the popcorn, snacks, and drinks and wile away the afternoon or evening.
Baking cookies and cakes for the upcoming holiday season. Explain to your friend or family member that you will be inviting them to your home one evening or day to create lavish (or not so lavish!) holiday treats. Supply all the ingredients. Once baked, wrap them in colorful cellophane and wrap it with a lovely bow. Put on your favorite tunes and sip some wonderful tea, Shop Amazon, while creating deliciousness.
Dance together. So many people are self conscious when it comes to dancing. I personally love to dance and could really care less what others think about me when I do some crazy moves. It’s all about having fun. Set up a time to have a dance-a-thon. Pick out some great dancing tunes on Spotify or some other streaming service and create your own playlist so you can have continuous dancing. Make sure you supply refreshments to quench your thirst!
When looking back on the past, what do you remember? Probably some great, or not so great, experiences. How about creating some wonderful adventures with others? Consider these suggestions as a perfect gift for the person who has everything.
Adventures. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, select a Groupon adventure to connect with that hard to buy for person. Even if your friend or family member is not a fan of the outdoors, by selecting an appropriate activity you may just open their eyes to a new hobby. Things like zip lining, wacky walks, escape rooms, or boot camps could be fun!
Daytripping. Research scenic routes in your area or holiday activities and plan to spend an afternoon taking in the season. Perhaps treating your person to lunch or a happy hour to top the day off would be a good idea.
Brisk Hike. Regardless of where you live there is more than likely a scenic walking path close by. Research best hiking trails for your area and I’m sure you’ll find many to choose from ranging from easy to more difficult and short to longer. Pack a lunch in your backpack along with a blanket and you’re all set.
Horseback Riding. When was the last time you were on a horse? Even if you’ve never been, there are places that will saddle up a newbie and/or a more experienced rider. Explore Groupon Homepage Link below for some good deals.
Broadway Play. A trip into a major city is always fun. Now that Covid 19 is somewhat under control, especially here in the northeastern part of the United States, Broadway is back on track. If you don’t live close to NYC, there are plenty of local community playhouses that perform current shows.
Orchestra/Choir. There is nothing more impressive than experiencing an entire orchestra in a concert hall. You see and hear all the instrumental sections including the softness of the strings, the booming of the brass, the pounding of the percussion and the light whimsy of the reeds and woodwinds. If you’re lucking enought to have a robust choir accompany the orchestra, you’re in for a real treat. This may be a once in a lifetime event that everyone should experience.
Commune With Nature
When a person is outside enjoying all the beautiful plants, trees, and flowers you cannot help but feel relaxed and content.
According to the American Psychological Association, “There is mounting evidence, from dozens and dozens of researchers, that nature has benefits for both physical and psychological human wellbeing,” says Lisa Nisbet, PhD, a psychologist at Trent University in Ontario, Canada, who studies connectedness to nature. “You can boost your mood just by walking in nature, even in urban nature. And the sense of connection you have with the natural world seems to contribute to happiness even when you’re not physically immersed in nature.”
Below are a few suggestions that will help your special person become more in tune with nature and help them reduce stress in their lives.
