A GUIDE TO SEASONAL GIFTING

I believe that it was Francis of Assisi who said;  “For it is in giving that we receive” and I wholeheartedly agree. I am a giver by nature – both materially and emotionally.  I rarely turn up to a function empty handed and love to surprise people with gifts ‘just because’ or to reward an act of kindness. The best gifts, for me, are the unexpected ones – which is why Christmas can be so tricky! The pressure to get the right Christmas gift can take the joy out of giving – especially if you are working within a budget (which is usually the case at this time of year, especially with more people to buy for).

Sometimes, the perfect Christmas gift is the very thing you’d never think of purchasing for yourself – like high-end, luxurious skincare, designer candles or champagne truffles. A gift is a treat and doesn’t always have to be what the recipient (thinks they) want, but more so what they would be happy to receive, use and enjoy!  Below are some of my gift ideas that any woman would be happy to open on Christmas day!

GIFTS FOR HIM


It’s always tempting to play it safe with Christmas gifts for men. They are simple creatures and for the most part, easily pleased. But that doesn’t mean one should be lazy or unimaginative when it comes to gift giving. Fragrances and handy/ portable tech/ gadgets are always a good shout. Fine Liquor is good too – especially if you can get hold of a limited edition bottle. If you insist on socks or cuff links – why not go for a personalised version to make it that little more special?

Customisation is a thoughtful and simplistic touch that requires little effort at all and comes at a very low cost – although, depending on the purchase and time of year, may even come as a free option, so worth investigating:

Don’t have an endless pot of cash to spend of presents? Then you’re preaching to the choir! I know that it’s hard to find a lovely, meaningful gift at ‘secret santa’ prices, but if you shop around you can setill find some pretty decent buys. When gifting at he lower end of your budget, miniatures are always a quick and easy win – especially with fragrances and skincare. Accessories and smaller leather goods, as well as quality stationary are also viable options. If all else fails – there is nothing wrong with the humble gift card!
