It’s the season of giving. From your parent and your best friend, to your partner and your Secret Santa, you’ve probably got a long list of people you want to spoil with something special.
Christmas shopping can be tough, but we’re here to make it easy. Here’s our comprehensive list of the best gift ideas for people with different interests.
Got a sneakerhead in your life? Spoil them to a new pair of kicks! Adidas Gazelle’s, Stan Smiths, or Superstars would be a great addition to their sneaker collection. Another great pair is the Converse Star-Studded, which provides a unique twist to the classic All Star style. Or if you want something bold, why not gift them Converse Leopard Love sneakers?
Got someone that loves dressing up? A new item for their wardrobe is the perfect gift. Gifting them a stylish new dress or shirt to wear to one of their summer events is the perfect idea. If you’re too nervous to buy clothing, accessories are a great alternative. Those that collect bags will adore a statement bag from Mango, Guess, or Aldo. A statement watch, a new pair of sunnies, or bold jewellery are also great options.
Beauty lovers will always appreciate new skincare or makeup for Christmas. If you’re unsure what they would like, you can’t go wrong with a gift set with multiple uses. We recommend the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour 3-piece skincare set that moisturises, soothes and protects from head to toe. These products can be used to hydrate dry skin, lips, nails and cuticles, tame hair and brows, soothe minor irritation, and add radiance and shine. We also love the anti-ageing Retinol Ceramide Capsules gift set for intense hydration. If skincare isn’t their thing, a fragrance is a great alternative. The popular White Tea by Elizabeth Arden is a crisp and vibrant floral fragrance with a lingering warmth that is sure to be a hit under the Christmas tree.
Tech is always a good idea. Those that love learning about new technologies will be blown away by the Dyson diffuser, which uses intelligent sensing to remove 99.95% of pollutants as small as 0.1 microns. You could also gift the Google Chromecast, which allows you to stream all the entertainment you love in up to 4k resolution and features a voice remote for hands-free searching. For people that are always listening to music, a great gift to spoil them with is a JBL speaker or headphones. Another great meaningful gift idea is a Polaroid camera so you can capture all the memories you’ll make this festive season.
Got someone that loves to host? Anything for their home would be a well-received gift. Appliances like toasters, coffee machines, and premium milk frothers add a more luxe touch their lives. You could also opt for unique serveware and glassware that they can bring out for their next dinner party, or a chic marble board for when they make charcuterie boards.
