With Christmas quickly approaching, the time for gift shopping is slipping away. If you’re stuck for what to buy for that awkward cousin or don’t know what to ask for yourself, here are a few quick ideas to help you out.
Donate to Charity
This is the perfect idea for those who don’t want physical gifts or who want to help make a difference in the world.
Donating to a charity is a wonderful gift idea and will help benefit whichever charity is chosen. You may already know who to donate to, or need to do some digging into the person’s charitable history; what are their interests or passions, have they volunteered in the past, is there an organization that’s close to their heart?
As well as a one-off donation, you could also adopt or sponsor an animal on their behalf- there are endless options, and you’re bound to find one that is perfect for them.
Goat Milk Soap
Goat’s milk soap is a perfect gift idea, as it can be used by anyone, any gender, and any age. It’s also great for many skin types and conditions, including acne and eczema, and is also really beneficial for beards.
Due to the natural benefits of goat milk soaps, it helps nourish and heal your skin, supporting its natural processes and leaving it feeling hydrated and pampered. There’s no harsh chemical, so it won’t strip away natural oils. All the ingredients are natural and organic, and the packaging is also great.
There are plenty of scents and types to choose from too, so you can find the perfect fit.
Planners, diaries, and journals are really common Christmas gifts but can be quite restricting if they are for a certain year. Often, you might start using it, and then a few months later have forgotten about it. This leaves the planner useless, as it’s predated with the month, year, and day.
By gifting an undated version, it doesn’t matter if you forget about it or don’t use it for a few months.
You can put the dates in yourself, which means it’s flexible and useful- especially if you’re forgetful or have a stack of journals to get through first! These types of journals are also handy if you’re looking to get into bullet journaling but are feeling intimidated by the freedom.
They can give you a basic template to use, allowing you to grow your creativity and expression without feeling overwhelmed.
Multi-store Gift Card
What do you get the person who has everything?
You can’t go wrong with a gift card that can be used at a huge range of stores. This means the recipient can buy their own gift whenever they need it, which takes the pressure off of you!
Gift cards like this are great because of their flexibility. They can be redeemed whenever and at many different stores both physically and online. They are also useful if you don’t know the person that well, or if you want to help them buy something a little more expensive than your budget.
What’s more, they can be themed- food, clothes, entertainment, and many more, which helps to make it a little more personal.
