Getting your head around those last minute gift ideas can be really frustrating. Some people are really easy to buy for but for others, trying to think of something suitable is a real nightmare.
It could be that you’re on the lookout for a perfect gift to accompany one you’ve already bought or to complete a present. So, to give you a little inspiration during a very busy December, here are some ideas to give you food for thought.
Your female friends will love candles. There’s a fabulous range of candle holders to house everything from the large church candle to the humble tea light. All can create the most wonderfully ambient atmosphere in any household. Also, you have the option to buy scented candles, which produce the most fabulous smells. All you need to consider is whether your friend is a fruity, flowery or perfume fan, however if you’re not sure, why not choose the festive fragrance and buy Christmas scented candles.
A clock is a great gift for someone who only ever knows what the time is by looking at their phone. It's traditional, but a great idea.
Buy something beautiful to inspire a friend to start a collection or help them to build an existing collection. There are so many collectable ranges available that can make a table, shelf or glass cabinet in their home look fantastic including Lilliput Lane, Pets with Personality, Willow Tree and many more.
The majority of us love a cup of tea or coffee each morning, so a mug never goes a miss. Try to establish the interests of the recipient, as there are so many different mugs available now from Dr Who to Disney Princess’s.
Jewellery is a great gift for femaile friends. Necklaces, bracelets or a brooch are brilliant but not earrings, as these cannot be exchanged.
Hopefully this will have given you some ideas. If all else fails, a voucher is always welcome so that the recipient can choose their own gift or put it towards a larger purchase.
Whatever you give, the spirit of Christmas will always give it that extra sparkle!!
