Five Incredible New Year’s Presents

We often usher in the new year by celebrating with family and friends, and many people choose to give their loved ones a gift as part of the festivities. There are several creative and thoughtful items that make great presents, including gourmet food, personalized barware, flowers, and more!

Gourmet Food

Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the famous comic strip Peanuts, was once quoted as saying, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” Although we consider Mr. Schulz to be a funny guy, there is something about this thought that rings true as many of us love to receive the gift of sweet, tasty treats. If you are uncertain about what your friends might like to receive as a New Year’s gift this year, why not give them the gift of a gourmet gift basket? From luxurious chocolate-dipped strawberries and decadent gourmet brownies to fresh fruit arrangements and delicious mixed nuts, you are sure to find something to suit everyone’s palette.

Personalized Barware

If you have friends or loved ones in your life who appreciate a well-mixed drink or finely aged wine, giving them the gift of personalized barware is a thoughtful way to wish them well in the new year. Have a friend who likes to kick back at the end of the day with a glass of fine scotch? A set of whiskey stones and engraved tumblers will surely put a smile on his or her face. How about those friends who love a cold, frosty beer? Gifting them with personalized, wall-mounted bottle openers is a great way to let them know you’re thinking of them. In addition to being stylish and thoughtful, personalized barware never goes out of style, and your recipient will think of you each time he or she uses your gift.


While many people associate flower deliveries with birthdays, Mother’s Day, anniversaries, and other personal holidays, there’s never a wrong moment to send someone special in your life a beautiful flower arrangement to express your love and appreciation of him or her. At Venus et Fleur, we pride ourselves in offering stunning flower bouquets that can last a year or more when properly cared for. When you choose an arrangement from our holiday collection, you have a wide variety of luxury roses to choose from. You may also design a custom arrangement, allowing you to choose the rose color, box style that best suits your recipient, and you can also include a personalized card and lid message for an extra personal touch.

Day Planner

The beginning of a new year indicates a fresh start for many people. As such, this is a great time to begin new practices and reinforce existing ones. From committing to a new gym membership or practicing more mindfulness in one’s day to day activities, there are many ways in which people choose to kick off the new year. The beginning of the year also provides some with the much-needed opportunity to clear out their current day planner and start anew. If you have a friend or family member who relies on a planner to keep their days in order, purchasing replacement pages or a new planner altogether for your recipient is a great way to show him or her that you care.

Spa Day

Although many of us see the holidays and New Year’s as a time of celebration, all the travel and fun can leave us feeling more than a little depleted. Sometimes, many of us are left feeling as though we need a vacation from the holidays in order to recover from the hustle and bustle and start the new year off right. If you have a friend or loved one who could use a break, there’s no better New Year’s gift than that of a spa day. This gift is completely customizable, and your recipient can choose the spa services that he or she most desires. From massages and flotation therapy to facials and pedicures, your loved one will surely appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into this present.
