The holidays are how we keep track of time. It has a tendency to slip away from us, after all!
Colorful Easter baskets for the kids, fun sparklers to usher in the Fourth Of July…these really are some of the most exciting times of the year. 2019 is proving to be no different! Adults stressed out from work and children wanting a break from school can all enjoy a little something special over the summer, fall, and winter. Planning out these events is as simple as jotting down notes on your calendar to gather up all the necessary materials. You can even try a little something new to provide this year its own special spark.
Cheap stocking stuffers or one of a kind gifts? Below are some great gift ideas for the upcoming festivities. Let your creative flag fly!
Did You Know?
You’re not the only one wondering how you can bring out the best in 2019! Many Americans today are going the extra mile to use the resources around them — a 2015 study found e-commerce sales making up nearly 8% of all retail sales. Global e-commerce sales are also expected to double between 2016 and 2020, good news for busy mothers and fathers that need to cobble together a last-minute party. It’s estimated 25% of the American population wait until the last minute to purchase gifts. What do you want to give your loved ones this year?
Creating The Cutest Easter Ever
Easter may be over, but that’s no reason not to prepare! This remains one of the most joyful holidays for children thanks to the cute decorations and tasty treats. Easter baskets bring a certain level of charm to the process, able to be customized down to the last egg and chocolate rabbit. A 2017 survey found up to 40% of American Internet users having bought items online several times every month. Imagine what buying a few Easter baskets and candy online can do to ease up next year’s egg hunt!
Celebrating The Fourth Of July
How about holidays that are just around the corner? The Fourth Of July is a showstopper, dazzling the imagination with great barbecue and fun fireworks. It’s not just an opportunity to get out of the house, but spend some much-needed time with your family. Heart sparklers can give children something to play with as they wait for the firework show to start, though you can always try a horseshoes mini kit to shake things up. According to a recent 2017 U.S. Census report, retail sales hit a record high of $5 trillion.
Appreciating Back To School Season
Ah, you thought this was just going to be a list on federally recognized holidays! Enjoying the year means celebrating all of it, up to and including back to school season. While children are yearning for summer vacation to last longer, parents are often thrilled at having some free time back to themselves. Keep everyone on the same page by creating cute little gifts to make school seem fun again. These can include mini gifts inside backpacks, new hats, or a desktop garden…just to name a few!
Preparing For The Best Christmas Yet
Who said it’s bad to prepare early? Christmas is one of those holidays that often needs months of preparation in advance, so consider jotting down some notes on your calendar for stocking stuffer ideas. Ideas for stocking stuffers include favorite candies, small plushies, CDs, DVDs, and art supplies. You can also try a miniature paint set for the artist in your family or miniature Uno cards to give everyone something to do after dinner! There’s no such thing as too creative when your memories are at stake.
From Easter baskets to cool sparklers, there are a lot of ways to bring out the best in your 2019. What ideas are you cooking up for this years’ holidays?
