Christmas might feel like it’s still ages off, but it will be here before you know it; whether you like it or not! This means it’s probably time to start thinking about what gifts to buy your loved ones, whether it’s your brother, mum or best friend. Some of the best types of presents are gift sets, because they come with so many different little items that they’re great even if you’re buying for someone really difficult!
So, if you need some inspiration when it comes to thoughtful gift sets, or other similar ideas, that make perfect Christmas presents, here are a few options to get you started.
One of the easiest but most thoughtful gifts is a perfume or aftershave gift set. They come with so many little extras like shower gel, body lotion and even travel sprays that are great for your hand luggage. Be sure to choose their favourite brand, or even their favourite scent if you know it.
It’s a perfect way to top up someone’s fragrance collection; after all, you can never have too many perfumes or aftershaves! There are so many to choose from, including designer brands like Thierry Mugler, Hugo Boss, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs.
If in doubt, some of the best gifts you can buy for someone includes alcohol; providing they drink of course. Alcohol hampers are a great choice for someone who loves experimenting with different tastes or combinations, so whether they prefer beer, wine or a spirit, you’ll find a great hamper to suit their tastes.
With how popular gin has now become, there are so many gin and tonic kits to choose from including your own set of garnishes and botanicals to switch things up a bit. Likewise, you could choose a cocktail making set or even a beer-making set for something unique.
A great gift idea for the women in your life is to treat them to some luxury makeup or skincare products. After all, everyone deserves to be pampered once in a while! Many beauty gift sets will come as miniatures that are perfect for travelling with, or with accessories like toiletry bags or makeup bags.
Think about who you’re buying for and decide what they would appreciate the most; a glamorous makeup kit complete with brushes for nights on the town, or a moisturiser and cleansing set that will leave them glowing?
Of course, there will always be someone on your list who already has everything and seem impossible to buy for. For these recipients, why not consider something completely different to the usual stocking fillers?
Subscriptions are becoming a hugely popular trend for gifts; from beauty boxes to books, you can set up a subscription to nearly anything to treat someone to a monthly or quarterly surprise.
Likewise, experience days are a great way to spend time with someone instead of just wrapping up a gift. Look for something related to their hobbies and interests so you know they’ll love it.
