Holidays Gift Guide

The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and if you want to avoid panicking because you haven’t bought presents for your friends and family, you should start preparing in advance and making lists of things you can give to those you love most. To help you deal with Christmas shopping madness, we’ve prepared a brief list of lovely presents you can give and which everyone will love.

For that special someone

For your special someone, you will want to find something that’s just perfect, and that kind of gift is always hard to pick. If you are familiar with their hobbies and know what they’re passionate about, it’s easy, but if you’re not quite sure, you can always get them something that shows your love. A nice frame you decorated with your photo inside, a special edition of their favourite book or a video game they’ve wanted for a long time, or even tickets to a concert or a show they wanted to go to will all do the trick.

For the little ones

Depending on how old the children are, you can start buying things that will encourage them to develop their hobbies and inspire their interest in certain things. Why not you give them their first diary or musical instrument (before you get them the latter, make sure it’s all right with their parents). Of course, when they’re small it’s all about toys and accessories they can use in their rooms, for example a teepee tent where they can read, play with their favourite toys or simply daydream if they want. When in doubt, it’s also convenient to buy them clothes with prints of characters from their favourite cartoon or movie – a Star Wars hoodie or Wonder Woman shirt will be much loved and often worn too.

For your parents

They have been doing their best to make every single Christmas peaceful and to make you feel happy and content, and now you can do something for them. As it gets cold this time of the year, you can always buy them super-soft blankets and warm fuzzy socks (the more ridiculous the design of the socks, the better). You can also give them personalized mugs and make your own Christmas ornaments which they can hang on their Christmas tree and wreaths to put on their front doors or windows.

For gym rats

Gym rats are easy to buy gifts for because they make their passion clearly visible and don’t hesitate to share with you how much they love the gym and their workouts. This is the reason why this Christmas, your favourite gym rat should get a gym-related gift from you: a nice pair of yoga pants so their workouts are always comfortable, a pair of New Balance Australia running shoes, a fancy water bottle so they can finally replace the old one, or a brand new gym bag. They will love your thoughtful gifts and whenever they use your gift, they will think of you, which will be quite often probably.

For yourself

When was the last time you bought yourself a Christmas present? The possibilities are endless, but you should give yourself time to reflect on the year that’s passed and to think about what you want from the year before you. If you are feeling a bit worn-out, you can treat yourself with a little something that will make you appreciate the Christmas spirit even more.  Buy that book you’ve wanted for months, treat yourself with a weekend getaway with your special someone or your best friend, visit a hair stylist and change your hairstyle, and go on a nice dinner in a fancy restaurant; you’ve earned it.

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year when you get to spend quality time with those you love the most. People tend to get a bit carried away with the gifts and the food, when the focus should be on bonding and love you share with your family and friends. Don’t forget what the Christmas spirit is all about – feeling warm and safe, and sharing that feeling with others.
