How to avoid a Christmas disaster? Here are 5 ways
A sulky child quickly throws an unwanted educational toy into a corner, her mother-in-law feels humiliated by an elegant cream, which she perceives as an indication of a bad appearance, and her brother puts his gift on the auction service the next day. How to avoid buying wrong Santa Claus gifts this year?
There is no such thing as a universal gift that will please everyone – it all depends on the person we want to give it to, but most of all on their personality and interests. The most difficult thing is to buy something for a person we don’t know very well. Here are a few suggestions of gifts that can prove themselves and the reasons why it is worth choosing them.
Gifts – surprises with eggs
The best gifts are those… the most ingenious and tailored to the interests of the recipient. If we want to surprise the cinema fan with something, let’s buy him not only a DVD title for his collection or a ticket package for cinema screenings, but also an Oscar statuette with his name on it or a thank you for being the best sister, father or friend. The connoisseur of wine, apart from a bottle of tasty and long chosen beverage, can add a funny glass in the shape of a bottle of wine with a capacity of 750 ml, and a Swiss penknife for MacGyver, as well as a stylish set of keys Woodman Le Grand with a card that now nothing and nobody can stop him.
Infect your child with the love of sport – the first bicycle to win his or her heart
If we want to encourage children to take part in sports… we must set a good example ourselves! At the same time, a given discipline should be fun for a young person, and the related gadgets or equipment should be very attractive. For example, cycling is such a sport – you can talk about its advantages for hours, and on the market you can choose from interesting proposals for children, such as the original first bicycle to learn to ride such as Le Grand Gilbert or a unique bike resembling the style of American series such as “Wonderful Years” such as Le Grand Kevin.
Jewelry for mom, grandmother or sister, who think about others, and never about themselves.
Every woman loves jewelry, but often can’t afford it. And it’s not necessarily about financial issues. For example, for a mother or grandmother, even if they receive an unexpected cash injection, there may always be more important things on the shopping list than the desire to make the desired gift, even once. Children or grandchildren could use new shoes, pants, tennis rackets, other times it would be useful to buy something for home, e.g. a new vacuum cleaner or a blender, and sometimes someone in the family needs support and needs help. Therefore, when thinking about a gift for such a person, it is worth appreciating their efforts and willingness to do everything for others. This time, however, let the gift be only for them.
Instead of another computer game – infect with love for board games
More and more hours spent in front of monitors, computers, laptops and tablets is a growing problem of civilization. And it is not only about children or young people. If we want to give the player something other than another computer game, accessories or points to be implemented in the game, let’s consider buying a board game. However, its choice must be dictated by the interests of the person to whom this gift is dedicated, e.g. a strategy game for a born strategist or a board game with the Lord of the Rings motif for a lover of Middle-earth, as well as a proposal that we will gladly play with him.
A book with a dedication, e-book factor or a voucher for shopping in a bookstore
Not everyone will enjoy a gift in the form of a book if they prefer to watch series every day. However, if the person we want to give a gift to is a true bibliophile, then it is enough that we conduct a small investigation to discretely learn about his reading preferences and titles, which are not yet on the shelf. If we are not able to check it, a gift card is a good solution – however, you should think about a special dedication to show that we have not taken the easy way out. For those who can afford a more expensive gift, a good idea is an e-book reader, thanks to which a literature lover will always be able to carry with him… practically the entire home library.
The above suggestions are only the tip of the iceberg – as many people as there are, as many ideas for gifts for Santa Clauses and Christmas trees. And remember – the gift is not about making the gifts as expensive as possible (too expensive can be troublesome for the host, because they may not always be able to answer with the same answer), but thoughtful and presented from the heart.
