Tips for Powering Up Your Holiday Gift List


No one wants to be known as the family grinch on Christmas morning. But we have good news for all you holiday shoppers: stealing the title of “best gift giver” is easier than you might think. Just follow these simple tips to make everyone wish you had drawn their name for holiday gifts this year.

Keep records: Listen to when loved ones say they like something or have an interest in a specific activity. Write it down at that moment so you don’t forget it and they’ll know you listen to what they are saying.

Write a note: Yes, actually WRITE it. A handwritten note that accompanies a gift is a thoughtful gesture that people appreciate in a world of email and texts.

Spend time: Instead of getting a gift, give the gift of time. Take a loved one to a sporting event, concert, museum, or on vacation. Spending time makes memories, which are remembered far longer than a thoughtless gift.

Think consumable: People love food. Take the time to bake or cook something you know they love.

Give a top ten: Search out the top gifts for 2015. Often, these gifts have been tested and approved by a number of critical giftees who assigned them the coveted title of “best gift.”

According to multiple gift guides for 2015, the top ten best holiday gifts for 2015 are all electronics. And  what’s the one thing you need to make your electronics work?  Power. So this year, if you really want to give the best gift under the tree, give the gift of power.

Recently named Popular Mechanics’ Best New Tool, Generac’s new iQ2000 portable generator is the quietest portable generator available. It’s also lightweight, and can be carried to even the most remote locations. That means quiet, non-intrusive power anywhere. You can use it on campsites, ice fishing shanties, hunting tents, tailgates, and even sporting events and backyard barbeques. Plus, the iQ2000 can help out in a pinch during a power outage, making it the ultimate portable power generator.
