With the festive season fast approaching. And if you’re one of the 34% of UK shoppers who do their Christmas shopping in November, it’s the perfect time to start thinking what you’d like to buy for those special someone’s in your life. Even if you don’t fall into that category, it’s never too early to plan out your Christmas gifts for friends. Proper planning and preparation for your festive season shopping will also help to ensure that you aren’t one of the 17% of shoppers who go over budget on their gifts.
No matter who you’re friends with, there are a few classic gifts that never go amiss. Read on to find out more about our favourite Christmas gifts for friends.
Staying in is the new going out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t quaff the best vintages. A great bottle of red is always a winner
for any wine lover, but what about 6? Or 12? Wine subscriptions are the gift that keeps on giving. Just a few clicks and your friends will have a carefully selected case of wine delivered to their door every month. What’s more, wine delivery day is the perfect excuse to get together for a monthly catch-up!
The fact that it’s one of the most common gifts of all time certainly won’t dull the shine of a great piece of jewellery. Whether it’s a necklace, bracelet, pair of earrings – or even a brooch – a pretty trinket is sure to put a smile on your friend’s face. Choose something that suits their personal style and have it engraved with a meaningful quote or date. Or purchase a piece that’s set with their birth stone for a great personal touch.
Whether your bestie is prefers print or e-pubs, a good book is a gift that will never go out of style. Rather than making a beeline for the year’s best sellers (she’s likely to buy those for herself), take stock of your favourite reads of the past year and buy her a copy of the title that transformed the way you see the world. Books are the perfect way to share something you love with someone you love and deepen your friendship.
Fragrances are another classic gift choice that will have your friends smiling from ear to ear. Rather than heading over to your nearest department store to pick up a big-name brand, pick out something a little more unique this year. Choose an enchanting luxury perfume that will uplift and refresh your friend whenever she catches the scent throughout the day. Fragrances packed with citrus notes are perfect to energise, while herbal infusions like mint will provide a freshness. Be sure to purchase an eau de parfum, which has a higher concentration of the essential oils that create the scent and provides a longer lasting fragrance.
There are plenty of gifts out there, but a few fan favourites that will always put a smile on your friends’ faces. Whether it’s wine, jewellery, books or a great fragrance, the only thing you need to stress about with these Christmas gifts for friends is how to wrap them.
