Dinks Holiday Gift Guide

by Kristina on December 13, 2012 · 3 comments

The holidays can be a very exciting time of the year. However with the pressure to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list they can also be very stressful.  Shopping around malls and browsing through websites in order to find the perfect gift can be very time consuming.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could just visit one website that told you what gift to buy for everyone on your list? Well fret not my Dink friends, allow me to introduce the Dink Finance Holiday Gift Guide, we will help you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list:

For the Foodie:

A set of specialty olive oils.  My father loves to cook and he always appreciates a delicious olive oil.  Many food shops offer a trio of specialty/flavoured olive oils as a gift set during the holidays.  Olive oil is a staple in most recipes and therefore it is a very practical gift for all of the foodies on your list.

A crème brulée torch.  Any kitchen savvy person on your list would love to have a crème brulée torch to help them crisp-up (aka brulée) their dishes during this holiday season. Who knows, you may even get a delicious desert out of the gift.

For the Fashionable Female:

A pair of new shoes. Unlike clothes which we change every day the same pair of shoes can be worn several days of the week.  If you don’t particularly want to spend time in a shoe store or just in case you don’t know your fashionable females shoe style or size you can also pick up and gift wrap a gift card.

A shoe membership.  You may not even know that this exists, but it does. Offer the fashionable female in your life a membership to a shoe website. Popular shoe shopping websites include Heels.com, JustFab.com or ShoeDazzle.com.

For the Workout Woman:

The latest workout DVDs. Wrapping up a new Zumba, Dance Central for x-box, Wii Just Dance, Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl Workout or The Biggest Loser DVDs are all great gift ideas for the workout woman in your life.

Cute workout wear.  Online companies such as PV Body will send your workout woman a monthly box of quality workout wear at discounted prices. For only $49.99 per month your workout woman will receive a box of quality workout wear each and every month.  Free shipping is included.

For the Man in Your Life:

Electronics and Apple Products. Any electronics or the latest gadgets are always a big hit with men during the holidays.  My boyfriend Nick wants a new iPod, he would also love to receive the new iPad mini as a gift.

A New Electric Shaver.  Men have to shave almost every day so if you are looking for a practical gift for the man in your life why not gift wrap a new electric shaver.

For the Reader:

A new book or e-book.  I am a big fan of books and I love receiving books as gifts.  If the reader on your list prefers e-books over paperbacks or hard covers you can always get them a gift card to Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.

Crime Fiction and Thrillers.  These are the types of books that I love to read.  I enjoy books by Joseph Finder and James Patterson.

What are you buying for everyone on your list this holiday season?

My wife did pretty much all the Christmas shopping. In fact, I’ve been so busy I haven’t even started shopping for her yet :0 We have a $30 spending limit, tho, so it should be relatively easy.

Woah….only 30 bucks? Dang man.

I think that’s a great idea DC. My family usually has a $50 limit and it’s amazing how much stuff you can actually buy for only $50. I feel that we should lower our limit because it will force everyone to get a little creative. I can’t believe you haven’t started your shopping yet…are you one of those Dec 24th at 6 pm shopping guys? My step dad is like that…every year like clockwork he is out on December 24 at 3 pm buying gift cards for all of the women in his life :-)
