Christmas Is Coming: Think About Your Gifts Now
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 • 23 comments
Christmas is only a couple of months away. Do you already know what you are getting for your nearest and dearest? If not, it is time to start giving it some serious thought. After all, you don’t want to be left red-faced on Christmas day because you have bought some crummy last-minute presents. So what do you get all your closest friends and relatives? Here are some fabulous ideas.
If you are completely stuck for ideas, you could just buy some Christmas decorations for everyone’s present. There is now a trend for people to pay for top-quality decorations that really stand out from all the rest. So why not treat everyone to some fancy new christmas wreaths or tinsel? And don’t worry that they won’t get them until Christmas day. There is still plenty of time to display them until the decorations come down. And as they are of a high quality, they will last for a good few years!
Do you have some friends who consider themselves foodies? Then why not indulge their hobby with some kitchen treats. Think about getting them a slick new appliance, such as a juicer or food processor. Or how about a trendy cocktail making set? Another cool foodie idea is to buy them some expensive local produce. For example, buy them a hamper of foods and ingredients from your local organic farm shop.
Still stumped for gift ideas? You can always fall back on gift vouchers. Most shops on the high street and in malls will offer ones of various values. If you know the receiver’s favorite shop, then treat them to one of their vouchers. Not sure where your friend or relative likes to shop? Then you can always buy them one that is valid in a number of different shops. Don’t forget that you don’t have to get vouchers that are only for shopping in person. There are now many shops that offer e-vouchers!
In the run up to Christmas, all the shops will be getting their top sellers ready to sell to Christmas shoppers. For bookshops, celebrity autobiographies are some of the best sellers. You might notice that a lot of famous names publish their autobiographies in the next couple of months. It’s so that people buy them for Christmas presents! So find out which celebrities are your friend’s favorite and see if they have a book coming out anytime soon.
If your friend or relative has young kids and never has much time for a date night with their partner, offer to babysit for them one night. You could even book them a table at their favorite restaurant and drive them there so that they can both drink. This is a great option if you are a bit low on cash. If you can afford to, offer to get the check for their fancy meal! It’s a great gesture of goodwill.
Hopefully, you will now have plenty of bright ideas for Christmas presents!
