If you’re the sort of person who struggles to come up with ideas for Christmas gifts, you’re not on your own. This can be a stressful time of year, and it can be especially difficult to buy for someone who seems to already have everything. The good news is that we’re here to help: we’ve put together some Christmas gift ideas to put a smile on your loved ones’ faces.
Perhaps one of the most obvious – but useful – gift ideas we can offer on this list is a gift voucher for your loved one’s favourite store. Whether it’s an online gaming platform like Steam or a voucher for Betty’s Tearoom in York, a voucher is more personal than money as it shows you want the recipient to spend it on something you know they love. Shop around and look out for deals and special offers – some brands actually discount their vouchers in the run-up to Christmas to boost sales, so you could get a great offer from a top business.
We know that artwork is subjective and something you love might not be to someone else’s taste, but personalised artwork such as alphabet art from the Trendy Alphabet Art website is another option to consider. You can immortalise a loved one’s name on the wall, or perhaps celebrate the coming together of a couple with initial artwork. Not only does it look stunning but it’s a truly personal gift that you won’t find anywhere else, and it won’t break the bank.
We mean, is it even Christmas without chocolate? If you know someone who has a real sweet tooth, then a chocolate selection box or gift set is another option that’s very well worth considering. Whether it’s dark chocolate, white chocolate or a mix of them all, shop around and consider a premium retailer like Hotel Chocolat to really show them how much you care.
One report has found that experiential purchases bring us greater pleasure in terms of anticipation and remembrance than do material purchases. So, if you really want to buy a gift that your friend, partner, or relative will remember, then an experience is definitely something to consider. Whether it’s a wine tasting event in the countryside, a trip away to Disneyland Paris, or even gig tickets to one of their favourite bands, experiences are right at the top of our list. Just remember to double-check they’re able to be off work before buying something.
Finally, consider gifting clothing this Christmas. From a cheesy Christmas jumper to something more suitable for everyday use, like a dress for a woman or a watch for a man. Be sure to keep a gift receipt so that your loved one can exchange their item should it not fit or they decide it’s not for them, and be sure to double-check their size before you buy stuff!
