The holidays are around the corner and choosing the right gift for each member of your family can be a challenging task – especially if you wait until the last minute. There is nothing worse than waking up the week before Christmas and realizing that you forgot to buy some of the gifts this year.
Or, perhaps, your busy schedule just didn’t allow you to go Christmas Shopping. Instead of stressing out about it, create a list of the most important people in your life and figure out what their passions are. Besides, there are many last-minute gift ideas out there – and we created a list of our favourites.
For the One Who Appreciates a Sentimental Touch: Heirloom Jewellery
If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to gift your daughter a precious family heirloom, this is your chance. Do you know that gorgeous set of gold earrings that you wore on your wedding day, or your grandma’s stunning pearl rings?
Whatever it is, it will make for an amazing and definitely unique present, and the best thing is, it’s already in your home.
For the One Who Has Everything: Charity Donation in Their Name
Have you always had trouble finding the right gift for your boss? No surprises there, as he already has everything he wants. Well, we found the solution for you.
Make a donation to a respectable charity in his name. It’s quite easy, you can do it online, and you can choose the amount you want to donate. Besides, it’s a really nice way to help someone in need.
For Your Artsy Sister / Friend: Digital Art
If your art-loving sister loves redecorating her home every month, then this one is for you. Instead of buying her another sweater from the nearest shop, try gifting her a set of art prints that she can use to refresh her gallery wall.
You can find amazing designs at affordable prices on Etsy or Society6. Besides being a really great gift idea for someone who loves art, it takes 5 minutes to purchase and download the files and you’re all set.
For Mum and Dad: Tickets to an Event
If you are like most of us, you are probably buying your parents a shared Christmas gift almost every year – and that’s ok.
For this year’s holidays, why not surprise mum and dad with two tickets to their favourite show, movie, concert or any other form of entertainment – your choice? Besides being a thoughtful gift, it’s easy to purchase tickets online even on Christmas day.
For the Coffee Lover: DIY Coffee Gift Box
We all have that one friend that can’t start the day before drinking a cup of coffee – or two. In fact, we’re betting many of your friends fit in this category.
If you’ve found yourself on Christmas Eve without a gift, just go to the nearest hip coffee shop and head straight to their assortment of blends.
Choose a few delicious beans, a fancy mug, a festive gift box and voila! You’ve got yourself the perfect gift in no time.
A Photo Book For Christmas:
Photo books and albums are timeless. Giving someone a quality photo book full of great pictures always makes for a great gift. You can get these done pretty last minute nowadays too.
If you’re thinking of gifting a photo book for Christmas you need to think about what kinds of pictures you’re going to use. Maybe you can fill them full of photos of past Christmases you’ve spent together. Or they can be full of fun candid photos that’ll make them laugh.
If they enjoy photography and curating photos, you could even buy them a photo book gift card so that they can put their own together when they get some free time. Whatever you choose, it makes for a thoughtful and personal gift that they’re sure to appreciate.
