Christmas shopping, you either love it or you hate it. We all know it can become a burden if it’s left till the last minute and we have to rush around, this is why online shopping with reviews is always a lifesaver and an excellent plan B for many. Writing yourself a list and finding out what your friends and family would like early in December or late November is always a good idea to avoid stress. Here are some ideas for everyone on your list…
The mum, the aunt, the sister, the friend, the wife, the girlfriend
For the women in your life, you can’t go wrong with designer jeans for women, as long as you know the correct size. Be sure to double check in case they have put on a few lockdown pounds or perhaps they’ve been hitting the gym recently. However, many shops offer gift receipts around the festive period or if you are ordering online there is usually a reasonable return period, just in case. Receiving a present you will use is always the best kind of present, if you don’t have anyone that would like jeans, maybe you can request a pair from a loved one or why not get into the festive spirit and treat yourself?
The boyfriend, the dad, the husband, the brother, the uncle
We all know men can be difficult to buy for, and perhaps it isn’t the year to buy another mug or a tie but a barcalounger can be a good idea for fathers. Think about your relatives’ hobbies, why not go for a guitar stand or an instrument-related gadget if they play an instrument? If not, you can’t go wrong with buying games, this provides something for all the family to enjoy on Christmas day and will create festive vibes. If you would like to buy them something to wear, trainers are always popular and now there are many options to personalise trainers with names, initials, or a message if you wanted to make it that extra bit special.
The cousin, the niece, the nephew
Clothes are always a great option, but if you aren’t completely sure about sizes you can go for pyjamas or something that can be baggy and doesn’t need to be a perfect fit Or you can give them cute costumes if they’re interested in geeky stuff. If you’re buying for children, you can ask them what you’d like or surprise them with an experience, like a balloon ride or boat trip. Experiences are much more memorable than toys that get forgotten about after a few months, for adults and children.
The Secret Santa gift you have a £10 limit to spend on
Whoever it is, you will find a present, especially if you are organised and start your shopping early. Secret Santa can be difficult when you get someone in the office you have never spoken to, or someone you just don’t know much about. You can find some cheap fun gifts that will be suitable for anyone and everyone. Why not go for chocolate, socks, alcohol or try your best to do some snooping to find out a little bit about them?
Good luck with your Christmas shopping, we hope you find all the presents you need and that you receive everything you wish for this festive season.
