Now that Christmas is around the corner, we are all super excited about all the festivities and joy that come with the holiday season. After all, Christmas comes but once a year. However, there is one thing that makes the holiday prep quite stressful — choosing the perfect gifts for our loved ones. So in this post we are giving you some of our best Christmas gift ideas.
It’s only natural that we sometimes run out of Christmas gift ideas. We want to find presents that are amazing and yet, completely different from what we bought in previous years. On top of that, we sometimes fear that our friends and family won’t like their gifts, so we may even feel a lot of pressure to perform well.
With that in mind, here are the best Christmas gift ideas we believe will help you beat the holiday blues and make Christmas shopping much easier. In this list, you will find gifts anyone would be happy to receive, such as custom-made canvas prints, as well as special and romantic gifts for him and her.
Everyone and their grandma are now hooked to smartphones. And, as we all know, batteries don’t last forever. Our devices seem to follow Murphy’s law and always run out of charge at the worst moment possible. Therefore, a portable phone charger is an amazing Christmas gift that should suit anyone who’s often glued to their smartphone.
Canvas prints are fantastic gifts in so many ways! Besides being beautiful, they can evoke memories or serve as signature pieces in any room.
For example, a canvas with an image of our first date or wedding day can be a perfect romantic gift for our partner. Also, any mum, dad, or grandparent will love a beautiful family photo. There are plenty of options when it comes to making canvas prints for friends too — they may include group photos, their favourite TV characters, or motivational quotes.
The holiday season is usually filled with various events. So, why not cheer our friends and family up with some tickets?
We can go for tickets for an interesting live gig, a stand-up evening at a local comedy club, the latest blockbuster movie, or a popular play. The possibilities are endless, thus making it easy for us to find an upcoming event our partner or friend is most likely looking forward to.
What many will find surprising is that most men enjoy their beauty routines as much as women do. Therefore, we think that a nice grooming kit would be a great Christmas gift for any boyfriend, husband, dad, or granddad.
If the lovely gentleman likes a clean-shaven look, a shaving kit is a great option. It can include various razors, priming oil, shaving cream, and post-shave balm for soothing the skin. On the other hand, if the guy in question sports a beard, he would probably be thrilled with a scented beard balm and conditioner, new beard brush, and high-quality scissors.
If we run out of fresh Christmas gift ideas for dad, partner, or friend, it’s good to remember that cologne is always both a safe and a classy choice. Most men like cologne and would be thrilled to add a new scent to their collection.
The tricky part with this gift is that we need to know someone’s taste quite well to pick the perfect aroma. So, it’s best to take a look at their perfume shelf before making the purchase; we can then make a choice based on their favourite perfumes.
If our man is a huge music lover, he will probably fall in love with a new Bluetooth speaker. These devices have truly outstanding sound quality in comparison to phones and tablets.
He will be able to drive, work, or enjoy outdoor activities without worrying about cables. What’s more, we can connect most Bluetooth speakers with our phones and use them to make calls. Thus, he will be able to drive and talk on his phone at the same time quite easily.
Personalised clothing is a great way to show our men that we know them well and appreciate their interests. A T-shirt with his favourite MCU character, a sweatshirt with the sigil of a beloved Game of Thrones house, or even socks with a graphic that relates to an internal joke, are all amazing Christmas gift ideas for him.
Most men think that beer is the best thing in the world. So, why not surprise him with a fantastic beer set? He will probably love it — and surely won’t expect it.
There are plenty of different beer sets available online, so it will be easy to find one that will suit him perfectly. Our favourite sets include mugs that always keep the beer cool, multi-functional bottle openers, and unique growlers.
Another good option is to buy the man in your life a set of different types of beer from different parts of the world. Finally, extreme beer enthusiasts will appreciate brewing equipment and personalised tap handles the most.
Career-driven men who enjoy every moment spent working will love Christmas gifts that can make their workday easier. So, why not go for a new laptop bag, leather-covered planner, or a journal?
Another great idea for businessmen is a pen set with a personalised message that should make them think of us even while facing a business crisis.
Most women agree that good things come in small packages, and jewellery is a perfect example. Whether your lady loves necklaces, bracelets, earrings or rings, she will surely adore a new piece of jewellery.
However, before making a purchase, it’s important to know her taste. Some women adore casual, Christmas-related designs, while others prefer something a bit more elegant. In any case, though, this is one of those ideal Christmas gift ideas for mum or girlfriend that shouldn’t disappoint.
A well-made, fashionable bag is the favourite statement piece for many women. Also, since ladies can hardly go through the day without one, it is also one of the safest choices when it comes to Christmas gifts.
If our girlfriend or wife spends a lot of time outside or in the office, she probably carries quite a lot of things with her. In that case, a large handbag (a tote, perhaps) will be an amazing gift. However, if she likes to go out in the evening, she will probably fall in love with a nice and classy clutch.
It’s no wonder that polaroid cameras have made their comeback — they make instant and cute images that everyone likes. Thus, one of these cameras could be the perfect Christmas gift for a lady who loves photography.
With a polaroid camera, she will always be ready to create party or date mementoes. And, even though polaroids are not as aesthetically pleasing as canvas prints, these photos are still quite classy. At the very least, she can use the camera to improve her photography skills!
Ladies who love working out regularly and taking care of their bodies will adore sports gifts.
For example, if our girl is a devoted yogi, she will surely appreciate a new yoga mat or accessories. She probably needs a new workout outfit too, so sports tops and yoga pants are usually welcome.
On the other hand, if she’s a serious fitness fan, a fitness tracker band or watch will come in incredibly useful. And, of course, we can also add some interesting custom items to the mix, such as a personalised water bottle.
After a long day at work, a glass (or two) of martini may be the perfect way to relax and unwind. So, one of our favourite Christmas gift ideas for her is a martini set. It’s both useful and original; our darling girl will be able to pour some martinis wherever she goes.
Some sets are quite simple and include glasses and a shaker while others contain additional equipment and drinks. Thus, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a set that would suit both our lady’s preferences and our budget.
Let’s be honest — most women enjoy pampering themselves. Therefore, a nice gift box with all her favourite products will surely be appreciated.
We can include bath bombs and salts, as well as body creams, face masks, and essential oils. Other things that should fit in nicely too are sleeping masks, comfy slippers or pyjamas, and silk pillowcases.
While many believe that Christmas gift shopping is extremely stressful, we truly enjoy it! With these Christmas gift ideas, you won’t have to worry about picking the perfect presents. Thus, it will become a fun part of the holiday season instead of an irritating responsibility.
We have tried to cover different styles, budgets, and tastes, so there is a gift for everyone on our list. Overall, we find custom canvas prints to be the best universal Christmas gift, while cologne and jewellery are the winners in the him and her categories.
Now that we have inspired you with our ideas, it’s time to get out there and start your Christmas shopping adventure!
