Choosing what to get for someone for Christmas can be tough. It is all too easy to throw a few gift sets of soaps and chocolates into the trolley when shopping, but if you are looking for a really thoughtful gift for special people in your life this year, think a little more thoroughly about their hobbies, personalities, interests and the things that they enjoy doing.
When you do this, you will be able to think about some thoughtful gifts that they will be really grateful for- remember, when it comes to gift giving, quality is better than quantity and it is the thought that counts. Here are some ideas that may help you to get started…
For many people, there is nothing better for a Christmas present than something to wear. If you have a person in your life who loves to look their best, think about the sort of styles they like in clothing – for example, a man who is into fashion, would probably love a pair of Tommy Bowe shoes like these www.louisboyd.co.uk/footwear/brand/tommy-bowe.html . For people who like to look their best, you could also have a look at styling products, or hair and beauty items – these are all things that are likely to go down well.
Over lockdown, the love of gardening increased even more, and many of us started to appreciate the relaxing and enjoyable time that can be had when spending time in the garden. Planning flower beds, getting things growing, and making the garden a haven to enjoy and relax is a popular pastime, and if you know someone whose garden is their pride and joy, you could please them by getting them a gift to enjoy in the garden. Things like practical items, such as gloves are a good choice, or perhaps some bulbs or seeds that they might want to grow in the spring?
Another hobby that someone may have that you can use to help you choose a great gift is cooking. There are so many handy kitchen appliances which you could get for people who enjoy creating delicious dishes in the kitchen. If they like to bake and come up with great cake creations, then you could get them some tools for doing this, or look at some of the creative and colourful cake toppings that they could use. Or if they are a barbeque lover, there are lots of amazing tools and glazes that you could get them to make their barbeque even better.
If you know someone who just loves to experience things – whether it is travel or music, then a good gift along these lines will go down really well. Tickets to a show or even, a guidebook for a country that they may be planning to visit or even a language course to help them with their travels. You could also look at handy luggage items too, if they are planning on a trip in 2022.
