Out of ideas? Want to make an impression this year? Or are you shopping for someone who just seems to have... everything? 

Follow our guide to 3 of the coolest gift ideas we came up with this year:

1. Give the gift of time.

We remember one of our beloved supporters, Dorothy "Dot" Sheehy, who made a lasting impact on the lives of others through her business Dot Will Do It. Why not continue Dot's legacy by giving the gift of "Do It" and offering to run an errand for a friend who's pressed for time. 

Make it special: promise a "drop everything" moment when they really need it.

2. Give the gift of memories.

There are so many great memory companies out there, from Shutterfly to our local Classic Elegance. Pick one and create something lasting.

Make it special: Have an elderly family member who is having trouble remembering names? Make a family photo album to help them remember.

3. Give the gift of art.

Our community is blessed to have great theater companies and each one is dedicated to bringing something special to our cultural life. Why not give a gift certificate to a youngster in your life who has never been to a live performance? Opera, dance, concert, theater: the possibilities are endless. 

Make it special: Try something like one of IVRT's Theater Adventure Kits for kids to get them excited about their theater experience!
