New Year Gift Guide 2016

The holiday season is almost over and the New Year is upon us. New resolutions are being finalized, the fireworks are being readied, and parties are being planned. With so much going on we are stuck with the ultimate question: What is the most commendable of resolutions? Before making this year’s resolutions, we would suggest looking at what happened to last year’s resolutions? How long did they last? Were any of the resolutions achieved? We can budget all we want, but if we do not compare them with actual results, how will we ever go into profit?

Regardless, for couch potatoes like us, it is inevitably going to be to get more exercise. Some noteworthy advances have been made in 2015, which make it easier to balance work and exercise. Our favorite was the adjustable work desk, which made it possible to work while standing up or sitting down. Healthier workplaces tend to improve productivity. Eating healthy will be another thing high on most people’s list. Obesity is on the rise in the US, but more people have become aware of this problem and we hope that healthy eating will bring it down. But, we should also be looking at alternatives, perhaps give out gold like Dubai did to incentivize their citizens.

Let us leave aside these meandering thoughts and come to the point, you are here to see the list of our New Year gift ideas, and you will not be disappointed, for we have once again done the research for you and bring you our Top New Year Gift Ideas.

Then know that the best gift of all is to make someone smile. For as Mother Teresa said: We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

and most dangerous gift of all is an idea. For as Einstein said: Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
