Winning at Holiday Giving
● By Family Features
Accept the challenge and make it your mission to earn the title of Ultimate Gift Giver with items to match the unique style and personality of each person on your list - even those on the "naughty list."
Here are five ways to fuel your holiday spirit and rebel from the standard gifts with unique items that break the mold.
Inject an element of style
Forget about socks, hats and gloves; amp up the cool factor with Harley-Davidson MotorClothes apparel for the chicest on your list. The Long Way Leather Jacket is made with vintage-style goatskin leather, features iconic back graphics and carries a price tag that will make you consider picking up one for yourself. For the woman in your life, consider the Scroll Skull 3-in-1 Leather Jacket, which offers warmth and versatility plus a removable full-sleeve fleece hoodie.
Present a project
Inspire the tinkerer on your list to get hands-on with the gift of a new skill. From woodcarving to micro-brewing or even bacon curing, project packages reflecting nearly every pastime you can imagine can be found online.
The gift of freedom
Everything doesn't need to fit in a tidy box with a pretty bow. Give the baddest on your list an experience of a lifetime with a skydiving excursion or a rock climbing adventure. Or, for the ultimate thrill seekers, give them a ticket to learn to ride a motorcycle. This is more than just a motorcycle lesson; it's the start of a new lifestyle. Check online for special deals, adventures and Harley-Davidson Riding Academy motorcycle classes specific to your area.
Celebrate with sound
Bring on the good times with some good ol' rock and roll. A gift that lets the rocker on your list enjoy their favorite tunes is sure to please. There are countless ways to bring them closer to their favorite sounds, from stylish headphones to Wi-Fi speakers. Or turn back time with a turntable perfect for kicking back to the sounds of classic vinyl.
Meet function with fashion
"Handy" is one way to describe Harley-Davidson's LED leather gloves that include a mini flashlight on each index finger. This clever design makes rummaging for keys or finding the ignition when darkness falls as easy as one click of the finger.
Stepping off the beaten path and opening up your imagination make finding the perfect gift a more enjoyable endeavor. Check out the guide at H-D.com/Holiday, which offers something for everyone, whether they ride or not.
