Gifts for the Holidays – Gifts for Young Adults

Welcome to week number two of “Gifts for the Holidays”  This week we are talking about gifts for young adults which are difficult for me.  Both my daughters fall into this age group so some of the gifts I am blogging about this week are things they might like to have.


When it comes to laptops we’ve always had Dell at my house but I’m keeping an open mind.   Here are a couple to consider.  Prices start at $300 and go up from there based on the equipment you choose.

There are lots of tablets to choose from with prices from around $100.  I have an iPad and love it but I’m sure there are other tablets just as good.  The line is now blurred between tablets and readers.  Many tablets started out as readers like Amazon’s Kindle.  Now the Kindle operates as a tablet as well as a reader and my iPad has a NOOK app so it is operates as a reader too, oh my goodness.

I love gift cards both as a giver and receiver.  The choices are endless and if you don’t want to pick a certain store, restaurant, or coffee shop you can always go with VISA, American Express, or one of the dozen or so similar bank gift cards.

Some friends gave my adult nephew tickets to a local art museum for Christmas a couple of years ago.  For him it was the perfect gift since he was an art major in college.  So tickets based on the recipient’s interests are always appreciated.  Some ideas for ticket giving are:   museums, art galleries, concerts, sporting events, plays, movies, or a special class.  I’m sure you can think of even more.



Gift services are less expensive if you do the service yourself and much more personal.  Of course any of these gift services could be hired out but still greatly appreciated by the recipient.
