The holidays are a wonderful time of year to reach out to others with meaningful gifts and let them know that you appreciate them.

This can be an expensive as well as exhausting task, though, especially if there are lots of peeps to thank. Here are a few ideas I've used over the years to honor teachers, neighbors, hotel staff (we travel a lot), and others without spending a ton of time or money.

Also, it's a good idea to order Christmas cards in bulk, where you can include both your holiday photo and a message. If you have time, you can write a personalized note to each person, but set it up so that if you run out of time, they're good to go as-is.

6 Meaningful Gifts for Someone Special in Your Life

1. Scented soap.

With coupons, you can purchase Bath and Body Works foaming soaps for around $3. It's a practical gift that everyone loves!

2. Holiday-themed dish towels.

These can often be purchased quite inexpensively. This year, I find a bunch at Ross that were between $4 and $5 for packs of two-five. Divide up those packs and mix and match. Again, practical and affordable.

3. A combination of soap and towels.

Still inexpensive and they go together really well!

4. Customized, mini wooden ornaments.

I ordered mine this year from a small business in Washington state for about $5 a piece. This is a great way to give a thoughtful gift as well as support a small business.

5. Jar candles.

Yankee Candles often has buy-one, get-together deals, and I've also found their large jar candles for under $10 at discount stores. Simple and thoughtful, and your recipient will be reminded of you all year when she burns it.

6. Starbucks gift card.

This one needs no further explanation. It's a winning option.

I'm sure there are many other great ideas for meaningful gifts out there, but these are the ones that have worked for me most consistently over the years! It's one more way for you to minimize stress during the holidays while still honoring important people in your life!
