Christmas Countdown #11: Holiday Gift Guide 2018

‘Tis the season to be jolly, however one thing that always seems to put a little bit of a damper on the Christmas spirit is the thought of giving presents to all the people in your life that you want to thank and wish happy holidays to. It’s easy enough to say that you’re going Christmas gift shopping, but another entirely on deciding what exactly to gift to certain people. Sometimes a list helps you to decide, sometimes thinking about the person and what they mentioned they wanted (or needed) in their lives. Maybe it is even just a little something that says that you take notice of the little things that they enjoy in life. Maybe our gift guide will help you a little in narrowing down your search for the ideal gifts for your loved ones this Christmas.

Coffee Maker

If you know someone who is a coffee addict, this would be a perfect present for them to receive from you. It would allow them to make their own brews within their own homes and it also shows them how much you pay attention to what they like. A coffee maker would have a lasting use and can last for years. Since Australian Christmastime falls in the summer season, you could spruce it up a bit and instead, gift them with an iced coffee machine, which can provide them with a nice, cool and refreshing beverage for any time of the day.

Jewellery Box

For someone who loves accessories, a jewellery box will never not be needed. If you have a friend or loved one who has endless pairs of earrings, bracelets and necklaces, this would be an ideal gift for Christmas. If their collection spans over more than one box, you can get various boxes for them, each for a different type of jewellery. Another option would be a multiple-layer box that they can use when they travel, which would make packing a lot more secure and easier, as all accessories will be together in the same container.

Clothes

You can never go wrong with a simple shirt, dress or even a pair of socks. The style of clothes can depend entirely on the person you are gifting it to. If your receiving person likes puns or graphics, there are an endless array of graphic t-shirts that they would love to wear. Some might like brightly coloured socks to wear from time to time. They might like something a little more dressier for those occasional cocktail parties or semi-formal events that are coming up. The choices are unlimited, and they can be a very fun way to enjoy the festivities of Christmas, both this year and potentially in the years to come.

Passport Holder

If your friends or family members love to travel, a fancy passport holder might be a good gift idea. There are holders that have multiple compartments for different documents so that they won’t have to remember multiple locations that they’ve used to store important documents, money or tickets. If your giftee likes a simpler design, there are holders that protect only the passport, so that they know where their passport is at all times. It might seem like a little thing but to a seasoned traveller, these little things can make all the difference.

Books

For all the readers, receiving a book, or books, for Christmas is a dream come true. You can be stealthy about this and obtain their literary wishlist without them knowing so that they will be delightfully surprised at the gift you’ve gotten them. Have a look at their libraries when you’re visiting and make a note of any book series that they might be interested in finishing. If they’re into DIY, there are many books that teach you how to make your own soap, cooking books and even how to code if that’s something that your giftee is fascinated by.

Jam/Chutney

While this might be a little unorthodox, these gifts can be received very well, especially if your friends and family enjoy trying new flavours and spreads. There are jams and chutneys that soak up that Christmas vibe and add some of the more traditional flavours such as cinnamon and gingerbread. These spreadables are a great way to bring people together and share in the Christmas spirit and it gives people the very taste and essence of Christmas.

 

If you’re worried about your gifts lessening the room you have for your family at home, you might want to consider storing some of your furniture or other belongings with Spacer. You can find a storage space within your own neighbourhood if you wished, so that it’s convenient for you to pop in if you need to take anything out or put things back in. on the other hand, if you have a little extra space in your home and looking to save a little for the Christmas holidays, you can list your space on the platform so that renters can see what your space has to offer. Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the happy reactions from the presents you’ll both give out and receive.
