Legacy's guide to holiday gifts
Holiday time is near, time for tidings and great cheer! But most importantly, the holiday season is all about the gifts. At a young age, the choices were obvious with a plethora of Tickle Me Elmo’s and bikes. However, as times change, toys and gadgets keep getting better and better. That is why this year, Legacy is helping you find the best presents for each of your unique friends.
For the film buff: With the new Star Wars film right around the corner, it is obvious that any multitude of Star Wars paraphernalia will work. One could even get a MoviePass; alike to a Netflix subscription, MoviePass is a monthly subscription to the movie theater. For $30-$35 a month, one can go to unlimited movies at selected theaters. For more information, check out their website here.
For the tech nerd: Drones are becoming popular. These amazing flying machines are the new toy helicopter, and even adults are mesmerized by them. Drones can range in price and quality. Before rushing into a purchase, make sure to clearly analyze the many features of different drones.
For the gamer: The gamer spends endless nights playing video games. From Five Nights at Freddy’s to Call of Duty, the gamer has played them all. The gamer could benefit from a multitude of video games; however, that gift is getting cliché. To spice up the gamer’s repertoire, buy a cool Pac Man-inspired light like this one.
For the sci-fi nerd: This person has already bought their tickets to the premiere of Star Wars. Always one step ahead on the Star Wars versus Star Trek debate, this friend will deeply benefit from a R2D2 Bento Lunch Box.
For the puzzle lover: This person is always in need of a good puzzle. Whether they are searching for words in a crossword or scribbling at Sudoku, this friend loves a challenge. To accommodate their continuous need for puzzles, buy this friend a Tetris lamp.
For the superhero fanatic: Whether they’re a Marvel or DC Comics fan, this action-loving buddy will adore a 3D Deco Superhero light. Available here, this 3D light is feeding the inner kid inside of everyone.
For that person you do not know what to get: At one point in everyone’s life, they must encounter someone who seems to have everything. It takes hours and hours to find one solitary present that is nice enough to be passed on to them. Instead of tossing away $15 for an iTunes gift card, try getting them cold weather gear. The best gloves would be North Face ETip gloves; at $45, the gloves are incredibly comfy and compatible with almost every touch screen.
For that active friend: There is always one friend in the bunch who suggests taking the stairs instead of the elevator. They eat healthy and even motivate you at times. There has been major developments in tech wear, especially athletic wear. One can easily purchase a Fitbit Zip, which will allow them to track their physical activity. The nifty gadget is also compatible with an app available for iPhones and Androids.
For that music lover: This is possibly the hardest friend to buy something for. What if this friend streams music? As concert season is quickly approaching, the best present for the music lover is a Ticketmaster gift card. To push it over the edge, throw in a copy of Robert Dimery’s novel, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Even though the music lover may have already heard every album in the novel, it is a good way for them to reference the greats. Another option for the music lover is a dancing water speaker. This version from ThinkGeek has incredible sound quality.
For the coffee fiend: By now, this person has received their fair share of mugs and Starbucks gift cards. This year, it is best to invest in a subscription box for them. For only $20 a month, Bean Box gives recipients a taste of Seattle’s best coffee as well as customized notes on how to brew.
For the fashionable friend: Usually, this is the friend with the best clothes. They know exactly what to buy, when to buy it, and where to buy it. The best advice when buying anything for this friend would be to envision their mindset. The best gift for this friend would be a gift card to the Container Store. This will allow them to store all of their many purchases. One can also play it safe with a copy of Alexa Chung’s novella, It.
For the photography guru: There is always one aspiring photographer who is constantly snapping pictures from every angle, but the constant shutter is all in fun. One could splurge the hefty $100 on the new Fujifilm Instax Camera 8. (Older models of this camera are about $50 here.) Alike to original Polaroids, it comes in many shapes, sizes, and colors, delivering wallet size photos instantly. On the contrary, a true photography guru will already have this camera. Try to buy a graphic disposable camera. This retro camera will have several varying overlays that will give pictures new meaning. These adorably vintage-style cameras are available here.
For the book lover: This person loves to read, whenever and wherever. That is why this person would greatly benefit from an Audible subscription or Kindle gift card. Many people are auditory learners, making it easier for them to listen to books as they complete their daily tasks. However, some book lovers enjoy the physical presence of literature. A Kindle gift card will allow this book lover to indulge on their favorite novels wherever they go.
For white elephant parties: White elephant parties are notorious for gag gifts. Here are a few options that are sure to be the envy of the night.
