The holiday season is about spending quality time with the ones we love. Quite often this simple fact is buried by attempting to cook the most delicious dish, hosting a memorable gathering, and finding the perfect gift. How do you know what your guest will like? What’s the best way to give something special without breaking the bank?

Our gifting guide will help you find tasteful solutions for your gift giving dilemmas and help you maintain your holiday budget.

 

For the Culinary Crazed

If you have a friend or loved one who loves to cook, consider purchasing pre-owned or like-new kitchen gadgets as a holiday gift. Heavy, good quality well-maintained items are a hit in any kitchen. Look for items still under warranty, when possible, or items free of dings, dents, and scratches. Here are a few kitchen gadgets you can easily find brand new or like-new:

  • Instant Pot
  • Crock Pot
  • Air Fryer
  • Dutch Oven
  • Glass, Ceramic or Metallic Serving Platters or Stands

 

For the Home Décor Enthusiast

Purchasing home décor for someone who loves to decorate their home can be a great gift. However, it requires a bit of familiarity with their design style and the colors in their home. If you want to play it safe go for neutrals and metallics when choosing one of the following items to gift new or like-new:

  • Throw pillows
  • Throw blankets
  • Decorative Candle Set
  • Lamps
  • Vases

 

For the Woman Who Loves to Sparkle

Jewelry is a personal gift that can express style and personality. Whether searching for costume jewelry, vintage, estate, antique or precious gem pieces, the first thing to look for and understand is quality. Pay attention to wear and tear in clasps, prongs, chain links, ring walls, and the like. Look for the following items in excellent or like-new condition:

  • Earrings
  • Necklaces
  • Bracelets
  • Anklets
  • Charms

 

For the Fashionista

Giving the gift of fashion doesn’t have to be hard. Look for timeless classics that any fashionista would love. Shop high-end resale brands to find extra savings for the woman who loves to look her best at all times. These gifts are the perfect items to find new or like-new without knowing exact sizes:

  • Capes and Shawls
  • Kimono and Oversized Cardigans
  • Sunglasses
  • Handbags
  • Scarves
