When buying holiday gifts, we seek to find something that our loved ones will not only enjoy, but also keep. Unfortunately, many gifts are headed straight from under the tree back to store shelves. In fact, more than half of holiday shoppers expect to return gifts this holiday season, according to a recent national survey.

Whether these gifts are missing the mark, don’t fit right or just plain don’t make sense, there are three tips gift givers should consider to ensure their gifts are home for more than just the holidays.

1. Use your social savvy – One of the best recipes for a successful gift is doing preliminary research. A great place to start is on social media sites where friends and family often share details about their interests and brands they like. It is also smart to consider what parts of their daily routines could be spruced up with a hot new tool. Going into holiday shopping with a plan helps ensure you don’t just grab the first cool gadget you see.

2. See what’s in style - We all like to keep our look fresh and sometimes the best gift is the tools to achieve this year’s hot styles. From the football field to the red carpet, guy’s grooming styles have been creating a lot of buzz. That’s why the guys in your life could use the gadgets to get the job done. New Lithium Ion grooming tools from Wahl give him the power to spruce up his look, from head to face.

3. Shop by the numbers – A recent study found that 85 percent of Americans are in pain – so it’s safe to say a majority of the people on your list could use a gift that relieves. While a gift card for a massage is good for one-time relief, there is new at-home technology that offers relief every day. One tool that combines the relieving power of hot/cold therapy with massage is the Wahl Hot-Cold Massaging Gel Pack. Its Velcro straps offer hands-free pain relief with a powerful massaging disk for an extra-deep penetrating massage on those problem areas.

Wahl is a leading manufacturer of grooming and massage therapy products available at major retailers nationwide. For more gift ideas, visit wahlholidaygifts.com.
