Christmas is coming, which for most people means that the time to find great gifts for the people they love is about to start. Finding the perfect gift can be tricky, especially if you’ve not given it any thought, but I have and hope that I can give you some good advice. I’ve been looking all around shops and online, and found a lot of great, eccentric gift ideas. Here are my top five:
1. A Programmable Slow Cooker. Making meals for the entire family can be a chore, but a programmable slow cooker is perfect for curries, chilli, soups and casseroles, and is very easy to use. You could buy one for your mom, wife, partner or anyone you know who likes to cook – and it will only help the chefs in the family to save time.
2. An e-reader. If you have a relative or friend who likes to read, but aren’t sure what books to buy them, you could always get them an Amazon Kindle or something similar. They can download books for themselves and read them at any time of the day. Perfect!
3. An exotic pet. A snake or pet tarantula would be great yet unusual for anyone you know who loves animals, but they can be taken care of easily and can give plenty of love back, just like a cat or dog. It is also a good way to teach your kids responsibility.
4. A painting set. Perfect for kids who want to be creative, it’s not that new console they might want, but rather more stimulating. Any art supplies store will have what you need including paint, an easel, paper and paintbrushes.
5. Flowers. A great traditional gift for this time of year, you might wonder whether flowers for Christmas are a good idea at all – I mean, it is not very conventional is it? However, if you can give it for Valentine’s Day, birthdays and Easter; why can’t you also give it to someone for Christmas? Ultimately, it depends on who you are giving it to – it may be more relevant for someone like a boss or a neighbour or the likes, just to show them that you remember them. They might not last for long, but they’re pretty, smell great and at a time when the weather’s a little bleak, they can brighten your office, your home and even your mood. Remember, it is the thought that counts!
