When it comes to Christmas I tend to think that people are generally really easy to buy for or an absolute pain. I’m sure we all have that one person who we really struggle to buy a gift for. If you find yourself in the same position you might want to consider these 7 Christmas gifts you can never go wrong with.
Socks and tights
Growing up, I remember getting at least 1 pair of socks every Christmas. It seemed to me that if I didn’t get a pair, Christmas just wasn’t the same. Now, as an adult, I still feel the same way and it’s something I’ve brought into Christmas for my own family. SOCKSHOP have socks for absolutely everyone, from Christmas socks to knee high socks and even super cool purple tights. Not only would these make great gifts for the family but also as a Secret Santa present.
Christmas provides the perfect time for buying new pyjamas. The shops are filled with all different kids of options and there’s something for all; men, women, children and even the dog! If you’re buying for family you might want to go down the matching pyjamas route or you might want to go for traditional red tartan. Whichever you choose, the recipient will love them!
Most people like jewellery in one way or another, whether that be a ring, necklace or maybe a watch. The great thing with watches is that you can also buy accessories to go with them. Another option is a watch opening tool, if you are buying for someone who loves to tinker with or try to fix watches. This will make getting into the watch so much easier.
Sometimes, I think buying food for gifts can be hard, especially if you don’t know the recipient too well. We hear more and more of food intolerances and allergies and there are a lot more people choosing to be vegan compared with a few years ago. Luckily, companies are catering for these requirements more now and there are so many more options for chocolate gifts for everyone.
They always say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend but it doesn’t really have to be diamonds. Jewellery makes a really lovely gift, for both men and women. There are so many different kinds to choose from, including rings, necklaces and bracelets as well as watches. Find out what kind of jewellery the recipient likes, such as gold or silver or any particular brand and go from there.
Winter is a lot of people’s least favourite season, mainly because of the cold. For me, I can’t stand having cold hands because it means not being able to do as much. I always tend to lose gloves too, no matter how hard I try or how many pairs I think I have. Gloves make a great gift because they tend to be something most people need and you can get them in so many different colours and designs. Kids will love brightly coloured gloves with patterns or you might know someone who would love a smart, leather pair.
There are so many fantastic games out there, whether it be a card game, board game or maybe even a computer game. I’m not sure I know anyone who doesn’t like to plays games in one way or another so this could be a great idea for a Christmas present. If you’re buying for a family you could buy a really fun game for everyone to play or maybe you could look for ideal games you can play on your own for someone else.
Although a bit more of an impersonal choice of gift it’s something that is bound to suit absolutely everyone. You could go for something really generic, like an Amazon or Love 2 Shop voucher, which covers a whole lot of different things or you could find out where the recipient really likes to shop. This way you could get a voucher for somewhere more suited to that particular person and show that you’ve put a bit of thought into your choice.
