Sometimes you’re just too tired to go out, but it doesn’t mean you’re not up for a fun night! Deliver the perfect movie night in for someone special on your list. Create a basket full of a Vudu or Hulu gift card and another gift card for takeout dinner from a favorite eatery. Stuff popcorn packets, Goobers and Snowcaps into a cozy blanket perfect for couch surfing, and rest assured that a relaxing night in lies ahead.

Nothing can make a spa day go out of style, especially during the busiest time of the year. Busy folks need time to recoup away from the hustle and bustle, so give it to them. Find a local spa that allows them to choose the services they want, so they can use your gift to create their perfect respite. Want to go the extra mile? Offer babysitting services, if needed.

If you’re looking to provide your loved one with a local experience like no other, give the gift of a Segway tour. With businesses popping up in all major cities that allow groups to take in different attractions, it’s easy to find an establishment that can provide a truly fun-filled day. From tours of haunted houses to architectural or museum excursions, pick the perfect one for the person on your list.

Missing someone who used to live close but moved away? Nothing could be better than a care package filled with their top local favorites to enjoy throughout the season. In Chicago, that might mean deep-dish pizza, Portillo’s or Garrett’s popcorn. Add some Goose Island brew and a blues CD to complete the package. From New York, send a favorite deli selection, like H&H Bagels or a treat from Junior’s Cheesecake. Include a favorite nightcap beverage and “The Godfather” box set to ensure a New York state of mind. No matter where you live, dream up your personal local favorites to share and send this season.
