Exchanging gifts with loved ones is a holiday season tradition. That tradition figures to continue this year, though families will almost certainly have to adjust the ways they exchange gifts.

Social distancing guidelines have encouraged people to limit get-togethers, indoor gatherings, etc., and forcing some of us to think outside the box when buying gifts for loved ones. The following gift ideas hopefully will make a socially distant holiday season that much more special for a loved one!

Cooking classes

Many people have spent the last several months honing their culinary skills. Gift givers can help them take those skills to the next level by enrolling them in online cooking classes which will be a perfect way to learn new ways to cook all the yummy produce found in our Redland Market Village’s Farmer’s Market! The options are endless and some even include access to legendary celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay. Many online cooking classes feature monthly memberships or single classes, making them ideal for loved ones of all skill and interest levels.


Technology has helped many people stay connected with friends and family while social distancing, so a new tablet, laptop, or desktop computer can be just what people need to fully engage in family Zoom sessions or weekly virtual happy hours with coworkers and friends. If a new tablet or laptop stretches your budget, consider a pair of noise-canceling headphones, which can make it easier to concentrate while working remotely in a crowded house. And don’t forget to shop our Indoor & Outdoor Flea Market for all the accessories, covers, and gadgets to go with that new device!

Crafting kit

Hobbyists may have had their passions for crafting reinvigorated while social distancing, making a crafting kit an ideal gift to help them fill their downtime. Beginner’s kits also can make an ideal gift for novices looking for an engaging, time-consuming hobby. -Get inspired for your loved one as you rummage for vintage or thrift pieces to re-purposed or flip in our Flea Market and find the activity that is just right for your loved one!
