Considering the unprecedented stress the global coronavirus pandemic has put on us, we could all use a little cheering up. According to a 2020 article published by the Cleveland Clinic, there’s evidence that giving gifts activates “happy chemicals” in the brain associated with positive moods and bonding. Basically, giving someone an occasional treat will cheer you both up.
Most of us want to give gifts that are not only special but distinctive. Something that will remind the person of you every time they see it. Whether it’s for a special occasion or a “just because” gift, consider these unique gifts that anyone can enjoy.
Get them something they actually need.
Gifting the person in your life with an occasional treat that they actually need is probably the best gift you could get them. Think of things like a food service subscription, a babysitting service, or even food for their pet. Whether you get them some luxury puppy chow for their pooch or waxworms for their pet reptile, they will appreciate the kind gesture and you’ll give them one less thing to worry about while running their errands. This will also show that you take notice of what’s important in their lives and that you have some appreciation and insight into their day-to-day experiences.
A Photo Storage Device
Consider the gift of comfort and convenience knowing where their photos are backed up. Meet IBI, the smart photo manager that backs up all your photos and videos from the devices you connect to it and saves them all in one place. Let’s be honest, it’s such a hassle to have to back up photos and videos manually for safekeeping. With this automatic backup device, that’s a chore of the past. IBI sits comfortably anywhere in your home storing all the memories accumulating over the years.
IBI not only collects photos and videos from your devices, but this smart photo manager will also collect photos and videos from any social media platforms that you connect to it as well as any cloud accounts that you choose. IBI is the best place to store your memories not only because this smart photo manager is super easy to use and has a ton of space (a whole terabyte), but also because it provides privacy as you need to login and allow others access if you wish to share with family and friends.
Pink Glow Pineapple
Perhaps the only cool thing to come out of 2020 is the pink glow pineapple which is now available for purchase! This pineapple is a luxury version of a regular old pineapple that has been in development for years and is known to be sweeter and juicer than a conventional pineapple and, well, it just looks super cool!
Not only is this a unique and delicious gift with tons of flare, but it’s also a super nutritious gift. HealthLine notes that pineapples are not only low in calories, high in nutrients, and antioxidant-rich, but they also aid in digestion and boost the immune system. At the right room temperature, the pink glow pineapple is both quirky and nutritious and a gift that your friends didn’t know they needed in their life.
An Outdoor Projector
The perfect post-pandemic event that most people are looking forward to is watching movies in the yard once the weather is warmer. With an ideal temperature for late nights in the garden, some cozy bedding, and a chocolate and chips diet, an outdoor projector is a perfect device to top it all off. For a friend or family member with a good amount of yard space, consider an outdoor projector that will play movies. Bonus tip: Do a “movie theme” gift basket with popcorn, movies, movie candies, etc. to really wow them!
A House Plant
According to WebMD, how houseplants can relieve stress, symptoms of allergies, aid in sleep, purify the air, and elevate your mood. Whether it’s a snake plant, flowers, lavender, aloe vera, or another type of easy-to-care-for houseplant, recreating nature indoors is a great way to brighten someone’s day and home.
