Unlike other events where you often only have one person’s gift to worry about, when it comes to Christmas, you are likely to have a long list of people you need to buy presents for; mum, dad, siblings, partner, friends, the dog (and that’s just the start)! On top of that you have to join the hundreds of other people desperately trying to get all their presents in time for Christmas, in order to find the perfect gifts.
Perhaps some of those on your list are easier to shop for than others, but we all have that one person who is incredibly difficult to buy for every year. So, what do we get for that friend or relative who seems to have everything already?
A Magazine Subscription
There is probably a certain magazine that the recipient of your gift loves to read – perhaps they go to the shop and buy it each month. Wouldn’t it be better if it could be delivered directly to their doorstep? A subscription really will be the gift that keeps on giving, all the way until next Christmas. Magazines Direct have the perfect gift ideas for her or him – with titles to suit those that love fashion, beauty, music, interior design, sport or fitness.
They may already have everything, but the memories of an experience will last far longer than any material gift could. A hot air balloon ride over their hometown, a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a day up close and personal with the animals at the zoo or a relaxing spa day complete with afternoon tea so they can really pamper themselves. The only issue with this gift will be trying to top it the following year!
Gift cards or vouchers are the perfect present for someone who has everything, as rather than having to take your present back to the shop because they already have it, they can go themselves and get exactly what they want. Gift cards or vouchers may seem like a cop-out, but if you get it for their favourite shop or activity, you are showing you know what they’d like whilst giving them the freedom to choose – whether it is for a clothes shop, concert tickets, a restaurant or the cinema.
A Personalised Gift
A personalised gift is the difference between just another gift and something really meaningful and thoughtful! They may have a cookery book stand, but does it have their name on it? Is their mug covered in their favourite pictures taking them back to a special memory every time they drink from it? Find something they would really like and then make it unique to them.
An Unusual Escape
Give them the gift of a night away with a difference. Take them away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with an unusual escape. They can choose from glamping in a modern yurt or cosy wooden pod, staying in a former farmhouse or chapel, or trekking out to a remote lodge! This is one night away they won’t ever forget!
