With December fast approaching it means it’s time for lots of Christmas shopping.
We’ve all opened a lovely looking, perfectly wrapped present to find something disappointing inside. So, when it comes to choosing things for your nearest and dearest, you want to get it just right.
Depending on the budget you’ve set and who you’re buying for, some of these luxury gift ideas could come in handy. Whether for your partner, parent or friend, this gift guide will help you give something extra special.
Lots of Pampering
Who doesn’t love to be pampered and feel relaxed? We all work hard, whether in the office or raising a family, so this could be a great way to help them unwind.
To pamper them, you could gift luxury skincare products like bath oils and lotions. Place these in a homemade spa hamper complete with candles, their favourite treats or a little tipple.
A Piece of Jewellery
Jewellery is a meaningful and very personal gift, speaking volumes about what the recipient means to you. So, if you really want to treat an important person in your life, this could be the way to go.
You could buy them a designer watch, a beautiful necklace and earrings set, or a pair of engraved cufflinks. Or something personal from the children? I think my favourite piece of jewellery came from Elsa. It’s a necklace with two links interconnecting. She chose it herself and told me that it represented the two of us. How adorable is that?!
Food Glorious Food (and Drink)
We’ve all got a friend or family member who is a real foody, making a food-related gift an excellent choice. There are loads of high-end hampers on the market that are bound to please them.
This includes luxury chocolate selections and cheese boards, as well as tea, coffee, hot chocolate and alcohol. These range in size and price, from mini to huge hampers costing hundreds of pounds.
Looking for a luxury chocolate box for a vegan or someone who is dairy free? Try these, they are divine <3
Accessories and Finishing Touches
Picking clothes for people can be difficult. From fit to personal style, it’s often an impossible task. You could give them a gift voucher but consider some luxurious accessories instead. Last week, I shared with you several gorgeous brands that I absolutely love. Click here if you missed it.
Find something they’ll love and that will complement any outfit, with a leather handbag, wallet, or a soft scarf and gloves set.
A Day or Weekend Experience
While you can spend hours trying to find a nice piece of jewellery or a luxury hamper, sometimes gifting an experience is best. This allows them to spend some time doing something they enjoy and make lovely memories.
Depending on the recipient, this could be anything from adrenaline fuelled days driving around a track or up in a hot air balloon, to a relaxing few hours enjoying afternoon tea or a three-course meal, as well as a night or weekend away.
