Josh's Splurge Worthy Holiday Gift Guide

Whether it’s investments, real estate or my clothing, I’m all about value. So when it comes to gifts, I give quality gifts that people can use and enjoy daily. I also love supporting fellow small businesses who focus on quality and make a difference in a community. Assuming that you are following a holiday budget (as per my end of year financial checklist), here’s some holiday gift ideas for those on your Christmas list, that will have as great an impact on a company as they will have on the recipient.

Holiday Getaways

Our family tradition is to go on a Christmas trip, rather than buy a bunch of stuff. Experiences, in my book, are the best gifts. In Georgia we are within a 6 hour drive of a great B&B in Savannah, a house on the beach near Charleston, the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, an amazing old train station in Nashville, Little St. Simons on St. Simons Island and the best beaches in Florida.

Christmas Gifts for Women

These are all gifts I’ve gotten my wife over the last year or two. They’ve proven to be her favorites and great quality.

So, go forth and spend some of your hard earned money … wisely. Let it be on something that they will love and will last for years! And this year, give yourself the priceless gift of security and peace of mind: schedule a meeting with a financial planner. I can create your financial plan and keep you accountable so you reach your goals.
