Gift Ideas for Christmas


Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, you meet old friends, you are in a happier mood (well, I am usually a bit grumpy some of those days, but never mind), you eat delicious cooked meals and of course you get presents! But you have to give presents too, and that is the difficult part because suddenly you cannot think of anything interesting.. Here are some helpful ideas:


For Him (including boyfriends, friends, brothers, fathers etc):
  • Gadgets (video games, i-pods, digital cameras, funny stuff -men are always children in heart-)
  • Tickets (for a football match or for a concert, be sure that he will love you!)
  • Vintage T-Shirts and Hoodies (wearable and cool)
  • Underwear (of course I am speaking about boyfriends, I would never buy a pair of briefs to my father, for God's sake!)
  • Small leather goods (wallets, gloves, belts)
  • Accessories (scarves, cufflings, earrings -if he has pierced ears-, ties)
  • DVD Box Sets
  • Coffee Table books according to his interests (style, football, playboy, whatever!)
  • Massage Gift Cards (everybody loves a good, rejuvenating massage)

For Her (including girlfriends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers etc):
  • Scented candles (always appreciated by stylish recipients)
  • Tiny designer things that give a touch of glamour to our everyday life (brooches, key rings, pretty compact mirrors, pens, umbrellas etc)
  • Personalized stuff (a specially made gift is always welcome, think of personalized jewelery, a mug with a picture of you together or something like this)
  • Cute make-up bags, or make-up accessories (a nice mac brush from natural hair will surely be deeply appreciated, rather than one more pair of earrings)
  • Bath products (come on, we always love pampering ourselves with oils, moisturizers, scrubs -also known as the Cleopatra syndrome-)
  • Manicure / Pedicure / Massage / Professional Make-up gift cards (which woman would ever say no?)
  • A nice set of pj's or a funny pair of socks (I love wearing my Spiderman ones!)
  • Coffee-table books, or books in general (personally, a book that has to do with style is the best gift)
  • Make-up stuff (because we can never get enough!)

Those are some propositions to make your life a bit easier. But, above all, make sure that you will give your presents combined with pure love. That is what will make the difference.

If you have something more to add, let me know!
