Christmas Gift Ideas

Thursday, December 04, 2014

As Christmas is just around the corner, I think it's time to start thinking about Christmas present ideas! Here are my thoughts on what to give your loved ones on the special day!

For Her 

It is quite easy to choose a gift for a woman. It could be something with sentimental value - maybe a picture frame, personalised notebook/journal or anything handmade really. Everything from jewellery to beauty would also be perfect. My ideas would be a bit more weather related - a lovely warm scarf, gloves or hat/beanie, or a big and cosy bathrobe.

For Him 

Choosing ANY gift for male friends, boyfriend, husband is quite a challenge but for Christmas, everything cosy/manly/and sweet will probably do - winter sweater, scarf or printed T-shirt, electronics or video games, collage of photos or chocolate.

For Couples

Personalised baubles or pillowcases jumped immediately into my head. I also found this amazing creative online shopping site where they have many great gifts for couples - notonthehighstreet

For Parents, Grandparents

A handcrafted jewellery set for mum/grandma and personalised keyring or mug for dad/grandad would be perfect! I won't mention presents for my mum or dad here as both of them sometimes read my blog and I don't want to spoil their gifts.

For Friends

A couple of days ago I was searching for a gift for my friends in Estonia and I had so many ideas. One thing that really caught my eye was a 'Long Distance Friends' mug. It is such a good gift as there are miles between my really good friends and I, and I don't see them very often. A cooking book, kitchen stuff (apron, teapot, food hamper), personalised guitar pick or calendar are great gift ideas I came across too!

  7. I find it so hard picking gifts for boys! Socks and jumpers are usually good, or some kind of alcohol - like fancy flavoured vodka or something :)
