Gift Ideas for Almost Anyone!

Happy Friday Everyone!

This week went fast!  It's already December 3rd!!!  I have been looking around at gifts online and thought I would post a little something about what you can give almost ANYONE for the holidays...gift cards.

I know a lot of people do not like to give gift cards, but this is a gift that allows the receiver a fun opportunity to SHOP for something really cool.

I think iTunes is one of the best gift cards you can get for almost anybody.  It doesn't matter if you have an iPod or if you do not even listen to much for music.  You can buy or rent movies and even pre-order new release movies!  If you want to be a little more creative, you could include a nice blanket, throw pillows, slippers or pajamas.  Perfect gift. http://www.itunes.com/


Many restaurants are promoting a "Pay $25, Get $30" type of gift card.  Locally, I know Piggy's in La Crosse and Syl's Place in Barre Mills both offer this great deal.  Make it a dinner and a movie package and get a theater gift card too!  http://www.piggys.com/ and http://www.sylsplace.com/

Not from around this area?  Check around with some of your favorite restaurants for these value-type gift cards!



One of my favorite places to shop (both in-store and online) is Target.  I wish, wish, wish we had a Super Target, but we don't...yet.  However, I have found many great bargains on Target's website.  They usually even offer free shipping on many items.  Clothes, electronics, games, CDs, movies, household items & decor, food, etc, etc...anybody can shop here!  http://www.target.com/

Try a small business that has a lot to offer.  For example, Holmen Locker & Meat Market is a one-shop stop for some really yummy things...the recipient of this gift card will thoroughly enjoy shopping inside the market, where you’ll find a wide variety of fresh meats and cheeses, microbrew beers, wines, specialty foods, gift baskets and house wares.  http://www.holmenlockerandmeatmarket.com/

Send them on an adventure to find unique shopping!  My favorite picks?  Tomah Cash Store and Burnstad's Market http://www.tomahcashstore.com/ and http://www.burnstadsmarket.com/ . 




If you send 'em shopping at one of these unique stores, they can have lunch right at Burnstad's European Restaurant, or send them over to the other side of Tomah to the Ground Round.


Don't live around the area?  Check out YOUR city for unique gift ideas!

Hope this helps for those "hard-to-buy-for" loved ones on your holiday list!

Have a great weekend!
