This is the second in a little series of christmas posts. Loads of people have done similar things but i love to read them and each one usually has some new ideas which are definitely helpful to me! So here is my take on gift ideas.
Gift cards: this might seem less thoughtful than some other presents, but i know i love receiving them! I would often do something like this for my sister so that she can choose what she wants to buy, or save it for next season :)
Tickets: i think these are a great gift. A good idea if you are unsure what to get for a brother or boyfriend as well. It creates something that you can go to and will always have memories from.
Photo frames: these are perfect when a photo of you and whoever you are giving it to is popped in. Gives that little personal touch which is one of the main reasons of giving presents!
Bath goodies: this is just a small example from the lush christmas range, but smellies are nearly always a fail proof option. And its hard to resist the ones from lush!
Socks: perfect as a stocking filler or secret santa gift. I have a little addiction to socks but dont always like to spend my own money on pretty ones so they are great as a gift for girls.
Hamper: these make a great gift for parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents. The basket itself can be fairly inexpensive and then it can be filled with whatever you fancy. Its a great opportunity to do a bit of baking or handmake something. Other ideas could be cds, books, wine, cheese, chutneys.
Wall art: or just etsy in general! There are some really amazing sellers on etsy who have ideal christmas presents just about everyone. Its a good way to support individual businesses too.
I think the important thing to remember is that its about the thought and not how much you spend on someone. Taking some time to think about what they would love makes the gift that little bit more special. Think about there favourite hobbies, or is there something they have had there eye on for a while? Maybe they have just bought a new car, or moved into a new house? Buying a gift that is a bit more unique is a big positive :) Have you got any great gift buying tips?
