It can be very easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to Christmas shopping and I am personally guilty of buying the same kind of presents over and over again. Being organised over the Christmas period can really help when it comes not only to Christmas shopping but getting all of these presents to the right people as well. If, like me, you feel the need to do something a little bit different this year then here are some quirky ideas for Christmas gifts.
Some people I know are really into certain things such as Harry Potter, Star Wars or even just really like cats or dogs etc. Instead of buying something maybe a bit more traditional then themed gifts could be a great idea. There are usually plenty of items available for things like films or television series and prices can range from a couple of pounds to however high you want to go. If you can find something in a particular theme that’s a bit different and quirky then even better!
Is the person you’re buying for a lover of a certain kind of food or maybe they like a particular cuisine more than any other. Instead of giving a gift of something they might expect, perhaps buying them an experience day or cooking day could be the way to go. This kind of gift won’t get wasted and the recipient will remember it for a very long time. If that fails, maybe think about a selection of gifts focusing on that particular food or cuisine.
The people that seem to have everything can be the trickiest people to buy for. I’ve had a few of these in the past and you can end up spending hours and hours trawling the shops or the internet for gifts for them. If you do manage to find a few things then personalised Hessian sacks make the perfect gift to put other gifts in. These sacks can be used year after year and is something much more useful than another pair of socks.
I love getting experience days as a Christmas gift. The great thing about them is that there are so many available to choose from now so there really is something to suit everyone. We have personally been on experience days to zoos, restaurants, hotels and afternoon teas and enjoyed every single one. If the person you’re buying for this year likes an adrenaline rush, then a fast car experience or water sports day could be ideal for them. If the person you’re buying for likes a bit more of a relaxed time though spa breaks are a wonderful gift and sure to be enjoyed!
Christmas gifts don’t have to be boring and you certainly don’t have to buy the same thing year after year. Have you bought any quirky Christmas gifts before? Let me know in the comments!
