Has life gotten in the way and left you with little to-no-time-at-all to even think about Christmas gifting? The truth of the matter is, we’ve all been there and Christmas has snuck up on us with no warning! If you’re finding yourself in this dilemma but still want to give your loved ones something thoughtful, then we have the guide for you. Here’s our guide to last-minute Christmas gifts:
Is a loved one a massive music lover? If you’ve got a fair bit of money behind you, buying gig tickets is one of the best gifts you could give them. While showing (if only slightly fibbing) you’ve made the effort, it shows your loved one that you’ve taken an interest in their taste of music as well. Gutted you didn’t manage to get those Adele tickets at first sale? Ebay will sort you out! If you are willing to pay a fair bit of money for them that is…
Christmas and feasting go hand-in-hand, and one of the easiest and more personable gifts you could give is food; i.e, YOU making something tasty! Anyone will appreciate that you’ve taken time (or the night before) to bake, and you could even get another family member to help you if need be. So why not bake something traditionally festive such as a gingerbread house? There are tons of recipes online.
Yes this might seem a little obvious to some, but if you happen to be gifting for a girlfriend, sister or female friend, jewellery is the perfect go-to gift. If she’s particularly girly, something dainty and sparkle will no doubt get her attention. What’s even better is that you don’t have to burn a whole in your pocket with this type of gift either, as you can choose from nearly any shop on the high-street.
Something for the Men:
It is often said that men are notoriously hard to buy for, especially at Christmas; but this doesn’t have to be! If he’s a sports lover, a football biography perhaps? Or a massive geek, get him his own BB8 toy? Usually if you stick to the basics you’ll be able to find something he’ll love.
And if all else fails…
CHOCOLATE! You can never go wrong with it. If you want to go the extra mile, stop by your local Thorntans or Hotel Chocolate, they have a wide range of Christmas gifts that are utterly delicious.
Feeling less panicky now? Wonderful. From all of us at Bloop, we wish you a Merry Christmas!
