Looking for something fun and easy for gift giving this holiday? I’m in the Chicago area and came up with these ideas for fun holiday gifts that I can find in my area. These are all pretty easy to obtain as well, so there is no need to go searching all over for the perfect present for someone special in your life. Instead, just try one or more of the below options!


Illinois Lottery Holiday Instant Tickets

Illinois Lottery Logo

Scratch off lottery tickets make great gifts, and the Illinois Lottery offers a number of fun cards with holiday themes. Check out the Merry Millionaire, Season’s Winnings, Jingle Bell Doubler, Holiday Cash, and Candy Cane Crossword tickets for easy stocking stuffer gifts. Or, give a bunch of them as a super fun bigger present. Adding a card to the top of a gift wrapped present is a fun touch to any gift as well. My favorite is the Candy Cane Crossword, because it is extra fun to play. You can see all of the Illinois Lottery instant tickets here. They are easy to find a most convenience and grocery stores.

Holiday Nail Polish Sets

Stores are full of holiday nail polish sets right now. These limited edition sets are perfect for any nail polish lover. With multiple colors in hot holiday shades, there are  perfect colors for anyone in the set. If you know a lacquer lover, you can trust that she will love any holiday edition nail polish set! Look for them at department stores, specialty makeup stores and big box retailers.

Custom Charm Bracelet

Custom charm bracelets are very popular and a lot of fun. You can have fun putting together a custom bracelet for a friend, family member, or loved one, or take her to the store and let her make her own. This is a great gift since if can be so personalized and involves that special touch of customization.  Look for these opportunities at jewelry stores and larger department stores.

Spa Day Packages

Spa packages are excellent gifts and just about any day spa will happily help you set up a package with however many services you wish to give. For those on budget, a simple gift card for a manicure or pedicure is perfect. In the mid-range, massages or facials are perfect. Finally, for big spenders, treat your loved one to a full spa day with multiple services.  Send a friend along with her too in order to keep her company!  Spa packages are not just for women either. Men love massages too. For extra fun toss a few of those lottery tickets in with the card for the spa!
