Christmas Gift Guide


Christmas is the ultimate time to show your friends and family how much they mean to you. It is the best time to buy people lovely, thoughtful gifts and watch their reactions as they open them. There are so many different options you can go for when picking the best Christmas gifts for your loved ones.

You could send something through the post with Shiply to family members you don’t see very often, or maybe you just want to say a special thank you to your other half. Here are just some of the ideas you could bring to the table this year.

For Homebodies

We all know that one person in the family who would much rather stay at home and bake some cookies or take a quiet evening on the sofa in their pyjamas rather than going out, and for these people there are plenty of lovely home gifts you can buy. For example, if they love to bake, you could buy them some cookie cutters, a smoothie maker or maybe a recipe book from their favourite chef. If they are into cosy living, go for scented candles, a plush throw and maybe a festive cushion they can place on the sofa. All of these things will be great ideas for a homebody.

For Tech Lovers

These group of people are pretty simple to buy for, because you just need to stay on the lookout for new games and videos out that year. A brand new game for their favourite console or a PS4 gift card would be great gifts for tech lovers.

For Animal Lovers

If one of your family members loves wildlife, you could buy them an experience day with falconry, wolves, or even the chance to be a zookeeper for the day. They will have fun with their favourite animals and have some amazing lasting memories to enjoy from the day.

For A Bit of Fun

If you want some silly stocking fillers for your family or friends, here are some quirky ideas:

  •         Inflatable willy costume
  •         Funny t-shirt
  •         A mug with a pun
  •         A roll the Christmas pudding game
  •         Funny childhood toys

These presents don’t need to cost a lot, and they will provide a bit of entertainment on Christmas day.

Make It Personal

To really show someone how much they mean to you, buy them something with a photo on it. You could opt for a classic photo frame or canvas with the two of you on it, a mug with a single photo or a collage, or even a cushion with a photo of their pet on it.

For A Spa Treatment

To make the perfect spa treatment gift for your loved one, you can buy a pretty box from the store and fill it with different items to create relaxing evening. For example, you could opt for a mixture of the following items:

  •         Face mask
  •         Hair mask
  •         Shower gel
  •         Bubble bath
  •         Perfume
  •         Moisturiser
  •         Nail polish
  •         Chocolate
  •         Fluffy socks
  •         A good book
  •         A bottle of wine

    Hi Candace, great pressie ideas. Personally, I would love a falconry day, that would really make my day. I’d love to see my Mum dressed in an inflatable willy costume. I can picture her now!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC and creating this image in my head of my Mum.
