It's the little things that people don't often buy for themselves that make the best gifts.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
With a little more than two months left until the holidays are here, there is no better time than now to start gift shopping. Instead of giving usual presents like a sweater, pajamas or a gift card, PromotionalCodes.com suggests that gift-givers get creative with cool and unusual things like weekend getaways, novelty gadgets or home-made goodies; all things that prove time and great thought were put into choosing the perfect gift.
“I've found that it's the little things that people don't often buy for themselves that make the best gifts,” said PromotionalCodes.com consumer savings expert Regina Novickis. “Things like online subscriptions, museum memberships and workout classes are gifts that can be enjoyed for months to come.”
Holiday retail sales for 2013 in the U.S. are expected to total $602.1 billion, according to the National Retail Federation and whatever the gifting budget may be, make every dollar count by simply thinking outside the box. The savings team at PromotionalCodes.com put together a list of ultimate gifts for the 2013 season that requires just a little creativity and will make a big impact.
Shoot Like a Pro
For the son or daughter in college, a compact system camera like the Nikon 1 S1 digital camera will give DSLR quality shots and high-definition videos. It comes with two interchangeable lenses, a 3” LCD display, Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization and many more features. Best Buy has great deals on this and other cameras.

The Gift of a Break
Treat parents to some time off by booking a hotel for a short getaway in a nearby city. This is the perfect time to look for holiday travel deals and will give consumers the chance to take advantage of sales. For a good deal, book the getaway in between Christmas and New Year’s or in the beginning of 2014 after the New Year when rates have dropped. Hotels.com is currently offering up to $100 off orders.
For the Fashionista
When in doubt about what to get for a special woman, go with shoes. Choose from a huge variety of celebrity-designed exclusives, pumps, boots and more; or go the extra mile and surprise her by designing a custom pair. Milk & Honey custom shoes are all made with superior craftsmanship in mind. If designing a pair of shoes is too scary, get a gift card for Milk & Honey and let her have all the fun making her very own pair.
Everyone is seemingly on a health craze as of late and it’s not a bad thing. For a fitness enthusiast, a gift certificate for a month of yoga or a year-long membership to new low-priced clubs like Planet Fitness is a good idea. Another healthy option includes gifting a fitness magazine subscription like Runner’s World, Men’s Health or Shape through discounted sites like Magazines.com and Magazine Discount Center.
For Music Lovers
For aspiring DJs, frequent party hosts or any music lover, the Crosley Cruiser Turntable is a fun way to blast tunes at small parties, on a weekday night or when on-the-go. Target has this cool gadget at a great price as well as others like the EZ DJ Pro Mixer Turntable for just $49.99.
Appreciation for the Party Host or Hostess
‘Tis the season for holiday parties galore and it’s always good to come prepared with a small token of appreciation for the host or hostess. For a small gift of pampering, a gift card from Spa Week can help a hostess unwind after the festivities are over. For a holiday-themed flower bouquet, plant, gift basket or more, FTD is the way to go. FTD has a variety of fall and winter options and is always offering great deals and low prices with coupons on PromotionalCodes.com.
