As soon as Thanksgiving is over, many retailers immediately dive into their preparations for the big holiday shopping season. It’s a time filled with good cheer, better food, cold weather, and a startling amount of bargain hunters.
The busiest shopping season used to begin officially on Black Friday, but many stores keep pushing that start date earlier and earlier to make the most of the season), but the wise shopper starts making their list earlier so they aren’t rushed as their time winds down.
Of course, sometimes it’s not a question of scheduling, but of what to get someone. Many people worry (justifiably) that their gift won’t be the “cool thing” or the “fun thing” unwrapped this year. So why not try to go with something a little unique and different?
Whether you’re shopping for someone who is particularly eco-minded or has a great eye for style, these bamboo products may be just what you need to surprise everyone this year.
Beat the Rush and Start Holiday Shopping Now
While a lot of people wait until the last week to get their shopping in, you should really take this chance to beat the rush and make sure you get exactly what you want for your friends and family.
With the reliance on online shopping and shipping, the earlier the better. The news often reports on the huge crowds at stores Black Friday, but they rarely show the crowds in the local post office or other shipping providers that are just as packed (though they occasionally interview people who seem surprised that the item they shipped across the country on the 23rd didn’t make it to its destination on the 24th).
Beat the rush by shopping now and finding the perfect bamboo gift for your friends and family.
What Makes a Great Gift?
Obviously, it’s “the thought” that counts, but, beyond that, there are some good options in bamboo for many different people.
Bamboo Blankets – These make great gifts for almost anyone, and they’ll feel particularly useful when they’re received in the cold winter months. Christmas may seem like mid-winter in some places, but there are still plenty of cold days to look forward to.
A throw blanket is a good choice for anyone from the youngest to the oldest in your family. They’re great for snuggling up on cold days, adding layers at night, or just to have something soft and nice for a quick nap.
Bamboo Clothing – With the New Year coming up, this is a great way to start it off in style. This includes everything from socks and underwear to something a little more fun like graphic t-shirts and fashionable polos. Add a bright scarf to your wardrobe or prepare for the spring and summer months with some new tanks tops.
Bamboo Handbags – Do you know someone who is trying to make their old bag continue to do its job despite it being too old, too small, or too big? You can help someone accessorize with these bright, vibrant styles.
Active wear – With the New Year comes a lot of goals to get back to the gym (and this time for real). These active-wear options are the perfect gift because they naturally wick away moisture and fight bacteria. This is your chance to help them with this year’s resolutions.
Giving gifts can be a stressful experience for a lot of people, but all they need is a few good ideas to get started. These bamboo products are a unique choice and will have your friends and family talking after all the gifts have been opened.
