Let’s be honest, gift giving is well, a gift. Chances are you’ve been on either the giving or the receiving end of an unfortunate ‘thanks-but-no-thanks’ or ‘re-gifting’ scenario. So instead of wasting more money on those one-and-done presents, consider these gift options people will appreciate and use, and use, and use again.
Gift of Knowledge
As the adage goes, “Give a man a restaurant gift card and he eats for a day; however, give him a cooking-class gift card and he eats for a lifetime.” Ok, maybe that’s not quite how it goes, but you get the idea. Cooking classes are a great gift for someone with no experience, someone looking to brush-up on their skills, or someone looking to learn new and exciting dishes. Secret family recipes are also a thoughtful gift option, if you’re so inclined to share some of your trade knowledge.
Gift of Membership
Memories last a lifetime, so why not give a gift that gets your friend or family member out and about and experiencing life. For this task, a zoo or museum membership is just the ticket. However, if your gift recipient is more of a homebody, an online movie or book subscription is the perfect complement to their couch surfing.
Gift of Goodness
Giving the perfect gift sometimes means giving to someone else. For example, in the name of your gift recipient, consider sponsoring a child in need or making a donation to their favorite charity. There’s no limit to the lasting impression this kind of gift can make.
Gift of Good Health
You want the people you love to be happy and healthy, so why not do what you can to make that happen? For example, instead of the staple spa gift certificate, consider a hand-held therapeutic massager. One day of pampering, can instead be rejuvenation and pain relief for years to come. You can even step it up a notch with a massager that incorporates temperature therapy. The combination of heat to increase blood flow and loosen muscles, cold to reduce muscle swelling and inflammation, and massage to relieve muscle tension, is the perfect recipe for customizable pain relief.
Speaking of recipes, good food is also essential to a healthy body. However, with people’s busy schedules a fresh home-cooked meal is often left on the backburner. Make it easier by gifting one of the many meal delivery services that are now available. Wouldn’t you like to come home to a box of fresh ingredients, and healthy easy-to-prepare recipes every day?

Wahl introduced the first electric massager nearly 100 years ago, and has been at the forefront of the category ever since developing hand-held massagers with powerful motors, ergonomic designs and specially engineered attachments that allow for customized treatment of pain and discomfort.
