Can you believe that Christmas Day is just less than 7 weeks away? That gives us just 47 shopping days which is not long at all. However most of us hate the Christmas shopping rush, after all what’s to like about it? The queues, the pushing, the travelling, parking, having to drag kids along. Christmas shopping on the high street can be extremely stressful so it’s best to start as early as you can or save the stress and shop online. Websites Such as Amazon are extremely popular at this time of year. They do sell pretty much anything don’t they?
Whether you choose to shop online or shop on the high streets, choosing presents for loved ones can also present a huge task. Sure, buying for the kids isn’t too difficult, most kids will simply hand their poor parents a list to pass on to Santa, but buying for other relatives is often more difficult. So I’ve compiled a small list of present ideas that most relatives would be happy with this Christmas.
Mums are special they are usually the ones who have been with us our whole life and now that we are older they deserve a treat from us.
I found this beautiful personalised clock at Write from the heart. It costs just £35.95 and allows the sender to insert 12 photos and add personalised text. It’s beautiful isn’t it.
Hampers always make great gifts and they don’t have to be limited to just food either.
This one is from Celebrate gifts and costs just £31.95. It’s very girly with lots of pink and pink silk roses along with pink Yankee candles and a variety of chocolates.
For the mum who loves Jewellery, why not make a piece that is extra special such as a personalised engraved necklace.
This piece costs £32.40 from Getmeanecklace.com and is sure to put a smile on any mums face.
Dads and men in general can be very difficult and awkward to buy for and usually end up with socks or some sort of aftershave or body wash set. Dads can be just as important as mums and although they rarely admit it, they do like receiving special gifts too.
For a dad who likes his novelty fun gifts and also beer, this lifting dumbbell beer glass from gettingpersonal.co.uk may just be perfect for him. It will hold 24oz of drink and ideal to help build up those muscles, especially after filling the belly over Christmas. It costs just £14.99.
For a more traditional dad then this beautiful coat of arms print may just do it.
For just £34.99 you can have your surname, coat of arms and a full family history printed and framed from Find me a gift UK.
FOR GROWN UP SIBLINGS
Again brothers and sisters can be difficult to buy for, especially if, like myself, you don’t see them often or they live far away. If you won’t be seeing much of your siblings over Christmas but still want to send them a gift then I would recommend using Parcel2Go. I use them all the time as I send many parcels and have not had a bad experience yet.
This pretty cushion from The gift experience would be something that I would love to receive from my sister. It can be personalised too and costs £14.99.
And for a loving brother I found this personalised phone docking organiser. It has a very retro feel to it, with space to charge a phone and keep things together such as keys. This comes just under £30 from the wedding puzzle shop.
FOR A BEST FRIEND
We all have that one special friend whom we like to treat at Christmas, tho this seems to apply mainly to us ladies as men don’t seem to bother when it comes to buying their friends at Christmas.
A good gift for a friend I think, is jewellery and I spotted this gorgeous infinity bracelet from Mynamenecklace.co.uk.
Again it can be personalised with any name. It’s very pretty and available in a choice of metals too. Prices start at £39.90.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? The clock is ticking.
