We are going to start off this series by talking about some of the
most timeless holiday gift ideas.
Throughout our lives, there are certain constants that always
remain. Whether it is a simple black dress that goes with anything,
or the suit blazer that can be worn with a T-shirt, a collared shirt or
even formal wear. Or even how a pair of jeans always remains in
style – there are always a few timeless items that never truly grow
old. This article is to help you with some timeless holiday gift ideas
that are sure to last more than a lifetime.
One timeless holiday gift idea is the gift of music. Young or old, if
someone special on your list has an interest in music, supplying
them with a musical instrument can be a wonderful investment in
their lives. Some of the more popular musical instruments are the
piano and/or electric keyboard, guitar, violin, flute, recorder and
drum set. Even though it will take time for the person to learn how
to play the instrument, once learned it will be a gift that continues
to give, possibly for several generations.
Another popular and timeless holiday gift idea would be that of
handmade or heirloom jewelry From the stunning pendants to the
glittering necklaces, jewelry has always remained with us.
Although there does exist what some would call fashion jewelry,
there remains a simplistic and yet elegant charm to the designs of
old. Jewelry also seems to become a tool for passing down family
stories and heritage, and thus fits nicely into the timeless category.
For those who are believers, a wonderful and timeless holiday gift
idea is that of the Good News, also known as the Holy Bible. For
quite a long time, passing down the Holy Scriptures from Parent to
Child has been an important tradition, and one never taken lightly.
The old family Bible, although tattered and torn and perhaps even
worn in a few places, it is a special part of the family and is more
precious to them than gold, silver or even platinum. Bibles and
other such books always make a smart and timeless gift to give.
This leads us to another timeless holiday gift idea in the form of a
book: photo albums and scrapbooks. Whenever a natural disaster
strikes and someone’s home has become destroyed, when asked
what they miss the most out of their belongings, it is always the
family photo album. Photos hold our memories with them, and help
remind us of where we came from and what we have become.
Thus small, handmade collections of special photos are always a
welcome and timeless gift to receive.
Of course, one tradition that will always be a smart and timeless
holiday gift tradition will be that of making and giving away baked
goods made from the heart and family recipes passed down from
as far as the family can remember. The number one requested
item out of these baked goods are always Chocolate chunk Cookies.
No matter what, the smell of cookies cooking is a
welcome scent, and one that always brings a smile to our face.
And who can forget making sugar cookies with our mothers and
grandmothers for the special holiday occasion?
Finally, the most timeless holiday gift idea of all is that of giving
money. When all else fails, money is seldom, if ever, turned away
as a gift. No matter how fashion and technology changes, money
or it’s equivalent will always remain as a good and thoughtful, and
especially timeless, gift to give. In fact, money is the number one
requested item no matter what the holiday season being
