Gift of Giving Made Easy

The break we have been waiting for all semester is almost here.

My fellow UT students we have all definitely earned this five weeks of no studying, exams to take, or papers to write.

No matter what you are celebrating this season.

If you have not already done your holiday shopping on black Friday now is the time to do so.

Shopping for gifts is never easy no matter the occasion. We have to take into consideration people’s personalities, styles, preference and the list goes on.

Truth be told, shopping for loved ones is never an easy task.

Below I have put together a list of practical, easy gift items you can buy without the risk of getting something the person does not like.

Gift Cards/Certificates are a man’s best idea yet! Well, it may not be the best, but it sure is close.

This is one of the easiest, stress-free gifts you can give someone no matter their age.

You can buy them a gift card to their favorite store, restaurant, spa ect.
This saves you the risk of picking out something they do not like. Plus, you don’t have to wrap it!

The only tricky thing with gift cards is deciding on the amount you should put on the card.

I would however suggest to a price limit of no less than $25.

Gift baskets are a good way to get a lot with a little.

You can get a customized gift baskets filled with anything you want and you can order them online.

You can get a variety of things the person will like all wrap together in one. This gift idea is great for anyone especially for older persons such as your parents or grandparents.

You can get a gift basket with anything from fruits to sweets, to even bath and body.

Electronics are alwasy a safe bet. Living in a world overtaken by technology who wouldn’t want one for Christmas.

If you decide to go the electronic route it may be a little more costly.

However, you can find great deals on electronics in stores such as Best Buy or Circuit City especially around this time of year. Some popular gifts include digital cameras and picture frames, video games, dvds, cell phones, and ipods to name a few.

University of Tampa memorabilia is a great way to spread holiday and school spirit. Pick up a Plant Hall history book for Dad or a pair of UT sweatpants for your siblings. All of these items are available at the UT bookstore located in the Vaughn Center.

Stationary is a cute and fun way to keep in touch with loved ones while at school. You can customize the paper at various stores in the mall, buy cheap packs at Target or even make your own at home.
