Before I begin talking about more item-based gifts, I just wanted to say that you should consider experience gifts. Experience gifts are fun and you can guarantee that your gift won’t end up in the landfill. My family has a regional parks pass that we love to use! For my birthday, my cousin gifted me two tickets to a Plant Nite from Groupon while by boyfriend got bought me ClassPass credits. Some other examples of experience gifts include workout studio passes or tickets to a cooking class, local theater show or museum.
