I’ve been terrible for writing festive posts this year, life has been so busy for me recently. With Christmas fast approaching its time to get my head down and write the posts! Christmas has come around way too quickly and I’m not prepared in the slightest. I only officially started Christmas shopping last week and still need to buy a few pressies. Since everyone seems to have everything they want or need it was difficult to think of the perfect presents. In the end I thought about things I always enjoy receiving to generate some great gift ideas, hopefully everyone will love their Christmas presents this year!
Yes you read that right, socks! When I was younger I used to be a little disappointed when receiving socks but now it’s one of the best things ever. They make great gifts, especially bed socks!
Don’t laugh when I say PJs, these are always a great gift, especially if you don’t know what to get someone as Pyjamas are always needed all year round.
In my opinion sports clothing is one of the best gifts. Whether you go to the gym or do a specific sport, there is plenty of choice. I find that its always good to introduce some colour or patterns into sports clothing, look around the shops and find something a little different. I personally love Piba for my leggings, I brought some Iron Woman ones and use them for flexibility classes so I know first hand how durable they are as they can withstand splits! For people who don’t “exercise”, sports clothing can still be a good present, perhaps jogging bottoms or a new hoodie is exactly what is on their Christmas list.
I don’t know about you but I think candles are a great present! They don’t need to be expensive Yankee Candles (even though these are amazing), you can also find beautiful scents in supermarkets so have a little look around.
There are plenty of choices for gifts that can be personalised, whether its a present for adults or kids there are many options. For friends in the past I’ve purchased personalised mugs or Christmas Tree decorations that have always been well appreciated.
Experiences can make amazing presents, have a little browse online and you’ll be able to find an activity or day out to suit anyone. Whether it’s driving a fancy car, enjoying a day drinking fine wines or taking part in a photoshoot.
What do you get for a person who doesn’t want nor need anything? Instead of buying something cute for the sake of it why not treat someone to a meal out. My friend and I are going to Zizi’s for a meal as our Christmas present to each other, it’s a great opportunity to go somewhere you wouldn’t normally go so it makes it extra special.
Tech products are another great gift idea, whether its a new phone case or selfie stick there are so many options. I would personally recommend looking at Cath Kidston as they have some beautiful prints and it’s great quality.
