We’re only a few months away from Christmas! To be prepared and avoid stress, it’s time to start thinking about your holiday shopping now. There are two kinds of people: the ones that are naturally great at selecting amazing, thoughtful gifts, and the ones that get stressed out at the thought of it. We all want to put a smile on our loved ones faces this holiday season, but for some it comes more naturally than others. Here’s a quick, foolproof guide for anyone in the latter group.
How To Choose The Perfect Christmas Gift
Before you start shopping, make a list of everyone you want to buy gifts for. That way you’ll be organized, won’t forget anyone, and you can also use the list to brainstorm gift ideas. Beside each person, write down some of their favorite things/hobbies for inspiration. If possible, try to spend some one on one time before going shopping so you can get an idea of what kind of gift they would want. It’s totally fine to drop subtle hints during this time. Ask them about things they’ve been into lately. Do a little window shopping and pay attention to what they’re eyeing. If you’re still stuck, we have some suggestions below.
Fashion & Designer Jewelry
Who doesn’t love a beautiful piece of jewelry? It’s a timeless gift that holds a lot of sentimental value and a quality piece can last for years and years. Most women incorporate jewelry into their daily looks for this reason even if they aren’t big into fashion. Also, major bonus, it’s way easier to figure out sizing. Unlike an item of clothing that may go out of style next season, be ill-fitting, or end up lost in a closet, a special piece of jewelry can be worn daily.
To make your gift extra unique, personalize it! Nothing makes you feel more special than receiving something that has been custom made for you. It’s always the personal gifts that are remembered the most. For the book lovers in your life, shop our selection of hand stamped bookmarks. Alternately, you can tailor make a charm bracelet for that special someone.
You can’t go wrong with a knitted accessory in the dead of winter. It’s a gift suitable for every age and gender (again – no worries when it comes to sizing!), and a great sign of affection. The person you gift the accessory with will think of you, and mentally thank you, for keeping them cozy as they fight the cold in their lovely new scarf or hat.
Take it easy when it comes to shopping this Christmas season. That way you can focus on what really matters – spending time with the people you love!
