The current lockdown measures are meant to end in just a few weeks, but there is no doubt about the fact that this Christmas will be a little different from any other – in a way or another. Indeed, we might be able to go back to work, but gatherings, family dinners, and office parties might not be so safe.
But, you can still feel closer to our loved ones during such a special time of the year: gift-giving! Yet, picking the right present for your loved ones is crucial, and you should make sure it entirely matches your budget. Here is some inspiration for safe, thoughtful, and affordable presents to be close to your loved ones this Christmas – virtually!
Personalised Care Packages
Care packages can represent a great Christmas present, especially as they have never been as useful as this year. Indeed, many people have found themselves facing the lockdown and ensuing restrictions alone or in a situation in which they don’t feel totally comfortable.
If you know of anybody who could do with a little support and love during these unusual times, a care package should be the first idea for a gift for them. The beauty of this is that it is easily customisable, and you can design it to perfectly fit your budget.
Our homes have never been as important as today, and the number of families and households that have decided to give their homes a makeover during the last months keeps increasing. So, why not add a little extra beauty in your own home? You can do so with thoughtful Christmas tableware, centrepieces, or frames to display your kids’ pictures. And, of course, this is the perfect season to finally invest in high-quality throws and blankets to make this winter season extra cosy!
Flowers and Plants
Flowers and plants are always a thoughtful gift, especially when paired with a card or note. They can help the receivers make their homes even more beautiful, and they can be delivered at a distance – for an extra safe Christmas. You can also find Christmas-themed flowers and plants that carry a special meaning, as well as being beautiful.
eReader (+ eBook Gift Cards!)
When planning the gifts for your other half, things can get truly complicated. Especially if you have been together for a while, it can become challenging to think about a gift that you have not already done before. And, of course, some experiences and activities are not on the cards at the moment.
So, why not opt for a gift that they can enjoy at home?! An eReader, complete with a gift card for some eBooks, is the perfect present for anybody who wishes to read more, but never seem to have the time!
If you love baking, there is no need to jump from an online store to another to find the perfect gift! Indeed, you can create delicious goods that, when packaged properly, could impress anybody! This is a perfect gift for anybody around you, including colleagues, neighbours, family members, and friends. If you are an expert in other crafts, knitting a scarf, hat, or jumper might be an even better solution for anybody who is far away from you!
