Christmas gift ideas for him and her

Christmas gift ideas for him and her

Christmas is close by and everyone is off to search for the right presents. Every year I am super late and am running from one store to the next without any plan what to gift my family and friends. I am really not good at this and my creativity for presents that are non sentimental is just super limited. So every year someone gets a scarf, a bottle of red wine or a bracelet. Not that these ideas are bad, but I would love to give this year some more distinct presents for each one of them.

To make your life a little easier as well as mine, I have been thinking a little ahead to christmas about some great present ideas which you can find here below.  If you have any more ideas, then please let me know in the comments below! I hope you’ll like them!

P.S. at the end of this blog post you’ll find a give-away for you to win!

    I like to put more thought into a gift. I like to get lots of little things that the people like and making a little gift hamper which I can decorate and make look exciting. This includes home baked goods, nice face and body products, perfumes, little bottles of alcohol ect. I find this so much fun and it also means you can be super creative!

  2. Emma

    It has to be when you name a star since loosing little one and nanna this year buying a star for close family members named after them has been a priceless gift something that makes us smile when see see a star and something that will be passed on threw the generations

  3. Emily Louise

    I’m putting together a memory frame for hubby this year, he got to meet his hero from his faveourite band so im putting photos and his signed bits and pieces with a flyer from the gig in a nice deep frame so they will be kept nice forever!

  4. I was surprised to see Poloroid camera until I remembered the new ones are digital. I remember when they discontinued the old ones and I was left with no film. I’d be interested in the new camera.

  5. Sara Colclough

    I like to make sure my presents are personalised, from names to hobbies. Every year I do a hamper for my nan with her favourite things… It’s not about how much you spend but it’s the thought.

  6. Terrie-Ann Wright

    I think a really nice idea for a friend or relative is to have a photocopy printed using pictures from the year from their social media account. Not many people actually print their photos these days so it makes for a lovely keepsake and can become and annual present.

  7. jackie beckett

    Really interesting I like getting locally produced presents and we are really fortunate to have what they call a forest showcase twice a year where local produce and crafts can be bought also many of the stall holders will adapt a product so its just what you want for a particular person

  8. Kay Broomfield

    I do little hampers for friends and family with exactly the kinds of things I know they’ll love. I start in September and keep adding to them. People always comment how thoughtful they are.

  9. Pauline Burroughs

    I like to arrange something like a facial or massage. Everyone seems to lead such busy lives that it gives them an hour without being interrupted by the kids or the phone. An hour of pure bliss xxx

  10. Ann Sandover

    I like to put together hamper of body goodies, hand cream, shower gel, shampoo scrubs etc and a couple of alcohol miniatures just for the ultra relaxation.

  11. Ruth Wollerton

    I love the idea of naming a star after someone, especially if they are in heaven. It’s a beautiful way of remembering them. Thanks for the chance & MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  12. Sarah Haynes

    I love making up hampers of things I know the person would love. My best friend is getting a baking hamper. Another is getting a hamper for a DVD night in.

  13. Nicola Dow

    I am making my mother in law a hamper filled with her favorite things. Edinburgh Gin, Too face Chocolate Bar pallet, Sloe gin mince pies and lush products are what I have put in so far.

  14. Tina Cleveland

    I like to get presents through the year to give to my realtives for me at Christmas, by the time Xmas comes I’ve forgotten what I’ve given them but I get what I want

  15. Debs Geordie Johnson

    Since my children have all grown up now with their own homes, every year I buy them each a special bauble for the tree, personalised or crystal so they can build up their own special collection that can then be passed on to my grandchildren
