December is here, and even though I’m not such a fan of autumn, I do love the Christmas month. I just can’t wait to get together with family and friends to celebrate Christmas. Yes, this must be one of my favorite holidays! 😀 But I have to admit it also give me a bit of stress… Those damn perfect Christmas presents are always so difficult to find! This year I’ve been writing down (in my bullet journal of course) whenever a cool present came in my mind, so maybe this might help you as well? 😉
A portable selfie light
If you ever tried to take a selfie of you and your friends when it was even just getting dark, you know why this might come in handy. Of course you can also take great selfies of yourself of course. 😉
A cashmere scarf
This time of the year is perfect for giving gifts that will keep someone warm. A cashmere scarf will do so, and also looks and feels amazing.
While we’re talking about keeping someone warm. A bathrobe is always a fun gift because it’s both useful and (well, most of the times) funny. I’m still wearing the one I got from the boyf yeaaars ago.
Travel scratch map
If you know someone who just looooves to travel, this gift will be perfect for him/her! Again, speaking from experience here. 😉
A piece of jewelry from your travels
I love to bring home clothes and jewelry that will always remind me of a place. And most of the times, you can find really unique and one of a kind jewelry when you’re traveling. It’s always a great idea to keep in mind when you cross this to buy something as a Christmas present for someone. These were for example some earrings the boyf bought for me when in Croatia:
A skin care gift set
Everyone loves to take care of him/herself every once in a while. Skin care gift sets usually comes with so many different types of creams and whatnot that are perfect for a very varied me time session.
A couple bucket list
If there are tons of things you’re constantly telling your significant other you would love to do, why not write everything down in a bucket list and start ticking of things together?
A photo album from a special day
Have you celebrated the wedding anniversary of your parents or another special occasion? Make a photo album with pictures from that day!
A board game
… which you can play on Christmas eve already. If you know a board game your nephew would love to play, why not give it to him and learn him to play it at the same time? That’s actually how my uncle and aunt gave us a board game last year: first we played it before dinner, then we said we loved the game and might just as well buy it, and then after dinner we received it from them as a present. 😀
Do you know someone who loves to read and loves to have plants in the house? Then a planter bookends might just be perfect for them! Your books won’t fall down again and it looks cute at the same time.
Running with earplugs might sometimes be a drag: you constantly have to adjust them because they don’t stay put, sometimes they even just fall out of your ear, … Did you know specialised earplugs for sportsmen exist? Running with them is more comfortable, which you really wish for every runner you know (and have to buy a present for).
(Indoor) skydiving session
For the more thrill-seeking people you know: book an (indoor) skydiving session which they’ll certainly never forget!
I hope this inspiration list helps you a bit while searching for Christmas presents. What would you love to receive or give? 😀
