Your best friend just had a birthday. Your niece got married. A co-worker had a baby.
What can you give them that’s meaningful—something more than a few towels or a Starbucks gift card? If you’re looking to take your gift giving to the next level, we’ve got you covered.
This little gift guide from the Dave Ramsey store will help you find the perfect something to inject a little hope into someone’s life.
They just got plates, silverware and bath towels. Now that they’ve become one, what they really need is to be on the same page with money. This is crucial for every married couple, especially newlyweds! Here are two great gift ideas. Buy a membership to Financial Peace University. They can take a class in their area and learn money habits that will last a lifetime. Or reserve seats for the couple at one of our live events in 2016. Talk about a memorable date night!

For New Parents
The new baby is so adorable—and so time-consuming! Mom and Dad don’t have all the time in the world anymore, so they're learning to make the most of the time they do have. You can’t give them more sleep, but you can give them Dave and his daughter Rachel Cruze's best-selling book, Smart Money Smart Kids. They can read the book now and keep it on their bookshelf as a reference for years to come.
Bonus Idea: Also consider opening a savings account in the baby’s name. That would be a great jump-start for college!
For the Person Who Has Everything
Maybe they have every gadget and gizmo under the sun. Bet they don’t have this! Get the Starter Special and help them get started on Dave’s plan with his number-one product bundle. It includes some great getting-out-of-debt staples, like The Total Money Makeover, The Guide to Budgeting PDF e-book and the Dumping Debt DVD. It’s the perfect way to start a life of being smart with money.
For the Person Who Tells You Not to Get Them Anything
We all have one on our gift lists. They tell you not to get them anything, but they’re disappointed when you don’t. It’s a trap! Here are two ways to avoid it. Get Dave Ramsey’s The Total Money Makeover. It offers money wisdom on everything from dumping debt to the importance of saving. Or consider the Starter Envelope System. It’s the perfect way to help them control what they spend on a daily basis.
Bonus Idea: If they really don’t want anything, you could always donate to their favorite charity. Can’t go wrong there!
