The C word is fast approaching – Christmas! Knowing which Christmas gifts to buy others can be quite tricky, as some people are harder to buy for than others. Last year I had some fun creating a wish list of Disney themed things I would like, but this year I thought I would also do a round-up style post of gift ideas for all.
Gifts for women who have their own families/are parents
There are some great gift guides, such as this article on Christmas gifts for mums. Consider their interests and tailor your gift search around their interests.
Candles (or other relaxation/spa products) – For mums who need to relax, you could get them candles or spa treatments.
Perfume – Find out what their favourite perfume is and I’m sure they will be so pleased receiving it as a gift. You can also now get the perfume bottle personalised with a message, which is a lovely touch.
Clothes and/or jewellery – Who doesn’t like a bit of sparkle?!
Personalised gift ideas
Personalised Christmas gifts are great because they are a way of expressing your feelings, or letting someone know how special they are to you. You can have gifts engraved with text or personalised using images, which usually adds a perfect extra touch to a gift. If you do opt for a personalised gift, make sure you order it in advance, as sometimes the turn arounds can be a little while depending on what the item is.
Subscription boxes – If you don’t want to subscribe for longer than a month, don’t worry, as most give you the option to only subscribe for a month but please do double check!
Experiences – Booking an experience for someone can be a great option, as some people prefer to create memories instead of receiving an actual object as a gift. There is so much choice, you are sure to find something to suite anyone.
Gift ideas for the kids and young family members
Christmas eve treats have become increasingly popular over recent years. Christmas eve boxes are a super cute idea, where the individual gets a few small gifts, such as PJs, hot chocolate, snacks, etc. You could also consider their interests as an individual, e.g. are they a huge Harry Potter fan? If so, you could get them a Harry Potter themed gift. Obviously this isn’t just limited to children and young people – adults can be Harry Potter fans also.
Christmas gifts on a budget
On a budget? Do not worry! Christmas can be extremely expensive, especially when you have children or a large family. There are plenty of options for cheap Christmas gift ideas, such as little stocking fillers and additional festive treats. You should have a budget for the person/each person and stick with it. This will make the process a lot easier.
Overall, it doesn’t really matter what exactly you buy your loved ones – they will love it anyway. I do understand though, that there is a pressure to buy the CORRECT gift. Good luck with your Christmas gifts shopping! You can do this!
