Holiday Shopping for Difficult People

by: Danielle Ternyila, stylist and Zyia Active Independent Rep

What makes a person difficult to shop for? They might have so many things already, be the person that buys what they want when they want it, or they might live a clutter-free and simple life. Some people hard to holiday shop for have hard-to-shop for passions, like golf and cigars; what else could you get them that would actually be a good gift that they haven’t received already?

The one thing all of these difficult people have in common is they all wake up and get dressed every day! Clothes are among the best gift ideas for the holidays because they will never go to waste, and even when they’re outgrown or go out of style, they can be donated to live on in another life. A gift that keeps on giving!

The trick to gifting clothing is snagging quality pieces that have a purpose! The best for colder regions up North, for example, would be winter coats, hoodies, and warm things that will surely be used for a few months after the holidays. If you live in warmer climate weathers, vice versa! You can also be thoughtful about their lifestyle, like someone who works from home might really get good use out of some new sweats! A friend who is regularly booking their next cruise or one who has a boat might benefit from a quality beach bag or the perfect outfit for a day at sea.

Shop small this season and explore the top gifts in my online boutique below. I know exactly what you can get that hard-to-shop-for loved one this Christmas and Holiday season!

A Shopping Spree Under the Tree: Gift Cards That Aren’t Lame

by: Danielle Ternyila

A gift certificate may not feel very genuine, but when there’s thought put into it, you’ll be the talk of the season, if at least to the gift card recipient! When you don’t know what exactly to get someone, it can be so easy to just hop over to your local convenience store for a Visa or big-chain gift card. Instead, be more thoughtful in your decision, even if it’s kind of last minute!

In reality, the cash gift cards you typically grab when you wait until the last minute are going toward gas, a grocery trip, or dinner out for one forgettable night. The perfect present should remind someone you are thinking of them, and so your gift certificate selection should reflect that, too. If you know your recipient has been itching to redecorate, it’d be thoughtful to get them a gift certificate to a home store so they could treat themselves to something of their choice. You also eliminate the chance they’ll have to go wait in line to return something you tried picking out instead that doesn’t match their aesthetic or fit right.

If you aren’t sure what your recipient would really like under the tree, consider introducing them to a new brand to treat themselves on something they ordinarily wouldn’t have. Everyone loves to be spoiled sometimes, and a new pair of pants or fresh blouse can be the perfect little gift, so long as it’s in the form of a gift certificate so they can pick exactly what they want!

Here’s a few people who might be on your shopping list to consider a Zyia Active gift certificate for, and the reasons it could make your gift the most unique and special this year, even if it’s last minute! As your Zyia Active Independent Rep, I’ll make sure they get the most perfect piece and know who to thank when they’re done using your gift certificate.

  • Your Neighbor, the Busy Mom, Your In-Laws, and the Teachers…
  • To Your Friend Who Lost Weight This Year
  • To the Friend With Big Dreams to Lose Weight Next Year
  • For the Professional One on the Go or Always in the Office…
  • Your College Kids and Grandkids
  • The Nurses in Your Life

Zyia Active is an active lifestyle brand that serves every body from women and men to juniors and kids. This versatile collection of active and athleisure wear help me go from the gym to the office, a flight to a corporate meeting, and date night to Disney World. With countless styles sizing from 2XS to 4XL, there is something for everybody’s needs and cover way more than just the basic wardrobe essentials.

This eco-friendly, versatile, quality brand supports women around the world who run their own businesses, whether it is a part time side hustle like my own, a full time gig, or just a title for personal deals. As your rep, I’m not only here to help you buy your gift certificate and print it out. I’m your shopping buddy and personal stylist! When your recipient wants to claim their gift card, I’m available to help them with sizing and finding the best fit, and any potential returns/exchanges that come up. You aren’t giving just a gift certificate, but a shopping experience, to say the least.

Give a gift they might not have ever gotten for themselves.

Gift Certificates available

Maybe you are unsure what to buy someone who goes to the gym often and loves working out. It’d be tricky to buy them workout equipment, and even more risky to attempt buying gym clothes for someone else. A gift certificate to a fitness-inspired business that allows the recipient to pick their own goodies could be a unique and genuine present for that special someone.

To someone who doesn’t treat themselves enough during the year, someone who has gone through a weightloss transformation, or the busy bee in your life who is always on the go, introduce them to a new brand with a gift certificate to shop the boutique online and choose what they like or want most! Get them something they weren’t expecting. Give a gift they might not have ever gotten for themselves.

We offer gift certificate options online, and as your Independent Representative, I can personally provide a printable or digital copy of the gift certificate with the shopping code to make your life easier upon request.

Let me know the details for a custom card, print it at home or at a local printer, and watch their face light up this Christmas when they see you bought them a Shopping Spree!

What better gift than the gift of shopping? Purchase gift certificates before you forget, and have the code emailed to you so your gift is ready to go for the holiday.
