Want to give a Christmas gift that is out-of-the-ordinary, won’t be forgotten about by the next day and doesn’t cost you a lot of time and money to find and purchase? Contact your local state college and find out what continuing education courses they are offering this winter and you may just find the prefect Christmas gift that will fit your gift giving criteria and will last a lifetime for the gift recipient.
Local state colleges always offer continuing education courses on a wide array of subjects, and education in any subject remains with us throughout our lifetimes.
Your local state college will offer practical application courses like basic computer and internet usage, which is a great continuing education course for many grandparents who want and need to learn how to use a computer for staying in touch with distant adult children and grandchildren. Continuing education courses in financial planning, money investing and practical day-to-day money handling are taught at local state colleges, which in these tough economic times can help teach a person how to get out of debt.
Continuing education courses offered at local state colleges can help a gift certificate recipient further their current career or get started in a new career. Real estate courses for those looking to get started in the real estate business, photography for the photo buff in your family, sewing courses for beginners, wedding instruction for someone planning their own dream wedding or who would like to get into the wedding planning business, along with a host of other continuing education courses that can help launch a new career path are available at your local state college.
Not all continuing education courses are practical or even career minded, some courses are just for fun, like introduction courses to belly dancing, ballroom dancing or salsa dancing. My local state college is currently offering a continuing education class in ‘Massage For Couples’, so a continuing education gift certificate can make a perfect Christmas gift for a favorite couple on your list, or even for yourself and your spouse.
Contact your local state college and ask about the types of continuing education courses they are offering for winter. You may be surprised to discover the wide range of educational options they offer, including clubs for runners or chess players.
A continuing education gift certificate to your local state college may be a perfect gift for someone on your Christmas gift list, and it will certainly be a Christmas gift that will remain with the recipient for many years to come and could prove to be a catalyst for a positive life changing event.
