Here comes the biggest gift-exchange season once again. Imagine how quickly this year has flown by! Many stores are probably crowded at this hour with early bustling shoppers looking for something to give their loved ones.
But, who says gift-giving is just about other people? Ahem, Christmas is a great time to treat ourselves, too! While it’s easier to think that “gifts from me to me” should be the latest iPhone, fancy interior knickknacks or any of those coolest fashion staples out there, let us be reminded that these things will just go out of style in the years to come. So, why not leave the typical presents to your loved ones and give yourself something that’s out of the box—something that won’t lose its lustre even after so many years?
Have you ever heard of life insurance as a Christmas gift? Well, it may not be a popular option, but it’s something that never gets old or should I say a gift of a lifetime it is? If you are not yet convinced, check out the many good reasons why life insurance makes the perfect self-gift this year.
It secures you and your family.
Nothing is more fulfilling than ensuring the life you planned for your family, especially when you have kids who depend on you. When you reach parenthood, you start to view life from a different perspective. You become more selfless by putting your children’s needs before your own. That’s what makes life insurance a perfect gift to buy yourself. You don’t just secure your life but you also make sure that your family’s financial future won’t be affected by your absence.
It gives you peace of mind.
The end of the year is always a perfect time to plan for the coming year. What better way is there to prepare for your financial and investment goals than buying a life insurance plan during the holiday seasons? Doing this, you start the new year with peace of mind—knowing that your family will be (financially) okay even when you’re no longer around. Your kids may not realise it right now, but soon as they get older, they will appreciate this act of benevolence far more than any material gift.
It is a gift that keeps on giving.
Unlike any other presents, a life insurance plan is something that lasts beyond the holidays. Aside from protection, many companies also offer a life insurance policy that comes with cash value investment. By availing this, you receive a kind of gift that keeps on giving as you can get a varying amount of profit based on the performance of the company’s investment funds whenever you need the money.
You avoid the shopping crowds.
When buying a life insurance policy, you don’t have to enter a busy, crowded store and wait for long queues just to pay for your purchased items. Your life insurance policy is just one click away. Visit the website of your chosen life insurance provider and a reputable agent will be happy to assist you with your needs. Payment is even made easier as you can pay your premiums online with your credit/debit card.
It’s cheaper than you think.
The price of life insurance may vary depending on your age, amount of coverage, and health history. If you are in your 20s or 30s and with no diagnosis of any health condition, you can score a policy at a very reasonable price. In some cases, the price of your monthly premium can cost less than your annual subscription to Netflix. Though it may not be as entertaining, you can rest assured that your policy will be much more valuable than your Netflix subscription.
