Find The Perfect Gift

How to find the perfect gift at Christmas

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the most stressful time of year. From arranging countless parties to the organisation of gifts; temptation to grab a mulled wine can get quite alleviated! Choosing that right gift for a friend, loved one or even a family member can be quite daunting especially in a shopping climate when the options are phenomenal! And how much do you spend? It then becomes a battle of sentiment over value!

Choosing the perfect Christmas gift

However, you can choose the perfect gift and all it takes is a simple list! Map out exactly who you need to buy for, what your budget is and the rest will come naturally. You will look at that pen frantically scribbling across the paper and once you see it in black and white, you will suddenly feel excited instead of stressed. Below are just a few pointers to get you started:

  • Write down who you need to buy for
  • Allocate a budget for each person
  • Write down three words that would describe each person
  • Write down their favourite colour or a colour that you think they would like
  • Note down any hobbies, interests or niches that they love
  • Make a note if they like bought or homemade presents
  • Write down sentimental gift ideas & items you could make within a realistic timeframe
  • Decide if you would like to create a themed gift such as gifts that are all one colour or smell
  • Make a separate list of gifts you can think of such as a day out, a product, a treatment etc
  • See if you can match your gifts with your name list
  • Choose wrapping that matches the style of the gift be it the colour, the type of gift or the theme

And last but not least, always give yourself plenty of time to wrap! This works well with a calming Christmas CD and a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate by your side!
