If you have special people far away, sending a care package is a wonderful way to say you’re thinking about them. For college students, make sure the package contains lots of munchies. For a new mom, fill a box or basket with luxurious skin care products, a journal, some relaxing music and of course, something sweet. Match the box contents to the occasion, and you have an easy gift that works.

It might seem that gift cards are almost too easy as a present. But the fact is, a gift card is often like permission to treat yourself to something you otherwise wouldn’t buy. Figure out what they love, but seldom indulge in, then pick out a generous gift card to let them enjoy, guilt-free.

8. Fruit baskets

With all the emphasis on health, fruit is a better gift than ever. And the fruit that comes in gift baskets and fruit towers is usually a lot fresher and tastier than ordinary grocery store fruit.

Pick a basket of fruit that’s at the peak of its season, place the order, and your easy but delicious gift is on its way.

7. Rose bushes and other plants

A vase of flowers is lovely, but a plant that will provide fragrant, colorful roses or other flowers season after season is even better. Select rose bushes that work in their climate, pick their favorite color (or yours!), and order.

They live in an apartment? This is one of those easy gifts that can work there, too. A pot of miniature roses will grow near almost any sunny window, and bring a garden feel indoors.

Yes, I know it’s considered crass to give someone cash as a gift, even if it is one of the easiest gifts to give. But sometimes cash is also the gift someone wants (or needs) most of all.

New parents trying to buy endless boxes of diapers, recent graduates looking for their first apartment or someone who’s just moved to a new city might love receiving a much-needed gift of cash. As long as you’re not giving cash to avoid thinking about what they might really want, it’s an excellent choice.

4. Picture frames
