If you have a group of people to buy for, for example a family in general, a group of children in a family, a group of managers in a business, etc., the following three ideas will help you to come up with some really great gift ideas for them.
One: Give the gift of attending an event, function, or place of fun. For example, if you are giving for a group of children within one family, why not purchase tickets for a local indoor water park that is open year round. Or perhaps a show is coming to town, such as Disney on Ice. Check for broadway plays, concerts, children’s events, and local gatherings that you think the group would like and purchase away. This is a great gift because it is one that is used after Christmas and can be thoroughly enjoyed.
If you are giving this gift for a group of adults, you could purchase tickets to an opera, a comedy club, a sporting event, etc.
Two: Purchase one large item for all members of your group to enjoy, and little items for each individual person to enjoy, and put them all together in a gift. For example, if you are buying for children, you could purchase a DVD player (Blue Ray or not) for the group, and an individual DVD for each person. You can wrap it all individually or together.
If you are giving this gift for a group of adults, you could for example, purchase an expensive bottle of wine and include an engraved crystal wine class for each member. If you want to get really fancy you could engrave the person’s name on the glass.
Of course the options are endless for how you could create these types of gifts, and can easily be tailored to the group you are purchasing for.
Three: If you are purchasing for a large group of people and are unsure of what their individual tastes are (perhaps you have a family member who has recently married and blessed your family with a group of step children you have not met, or not quite gotten to know yet) then consider a group gift card. You could purchase it for a child oriented place, such as Chuck E. Cheese. Or if it is for adults, you could purchase it to a restaurant of good quality. Again, the type of gift you choose with this option is endless and can be tailored to fit the group in question.
Buying for groups of people, or families as a whole, is sometimes easier, and far less expensive than purchasing for each individual member, and doing so does not have to diminish the quality of the gift. Quite the contrary is true in fact. You can use one of these great gift idea options, or with a little time and consideration, come up with a really wonderful idea of your own that is sure to please.
