Thoughtful Giving Guide 2019

Dec 3, 2019 | Financial Education | 0 comments

At R&D Financial Coaching we believe in living an intentional life where not only do we maintain healthy financial lives, but we also promote healthy lifestyles, eco-friendly choices and thoughtful consuming. So this giving season, we rounded up some of our favorite gift ideas that encourage a healthy lifestyle and thoughtful spending.

Let’s get started!

  1. Digital Memberships

    Truly a zero waste gift! These memberships allow you to access content online that you can listen to or watch from your device any time, anywhere. Great for the commuter, traveler or multi-tasker looking to enrich their life. Think, Audible for audiobooks, Beachbody on Demand for workout videos, or Calm for meditation and better sleep.

  2. Digital Gift Card 

    For pretty much anything these days really…but we love environmentally friendly companies such as LUSH, Prana, or Rasa that sell items anyone would enjoy while also being ethical.

  3. DIY Gift basket filled with locally made items 

    One of our favorite gift ideas is to go to local stores and find fun, locally made products that you can then put in to a gift basket or a care package for the whole family to enjoy! Not only is it thoughtful and custom made, but you will also cut down on packaging, decrease your carbon footprint and support  local businesses by shopping local rather than online.

    Some of our suggestions for here in Chattanooga: Check out the selection at Locals Only and put together something uniquely Chattanoogan!

  4. Relaxing experiences

    All of us are stressed. Literally. ALL OF US. So give the gift of relaxation and a little Self-Care. We suggest a massage at a local day spa, a visit to a float tank, nail salon or sauna!

    Some of our suggestions for here in Chattanooga  The Woodhouse Day SpaLucidity Float and Wellness Center or Sisu Sauna Studio (Like this idea but out of your budget? Try gifting a Groupon!)

  5. Make Memories

    A gift that truly keeps giving is spending time with those you love, making memories that will last a lifetime. Get tickets to a show at a local venue, take a class together, or experience a new attraction in your town!

    Some of our suggestions for here in Chattanooga: See a show at the Tivoli,  take a class at The Chattery, Throw an axe or 20 at Civil Axe

  6. Achieve Goals

    Most everyone makes New Year’s resolutions or sets a goal for the year ahead to be healthier, more balanced or mindful or just try something NEW! Get them stoked on a healthy lifestyle or a fun new hobby and buy them a membership to a climbing gym, martial arts school, yoga practice, or cycling!

    Some of our suggestions for here in Chattanooga: Rock Climb at High Point Climbing gym, Get centered at Yoga Landing, or enjoy some heart pumping cardio cardio at Echelon .

Remember, whatever gifts you decide to give this holiday season, be sure to do so thoughtfully and not to overextend yourself financially. No friend of family member wants to give you debt for Christmas.
