We turn to Christmas songs right after Halloween. You have probably seen dozen of memes depicting listening to Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You from the 1st of November, and this indeed is the most popular Xmas song nowadays. But, let’s be honest – are there a lot of people that we want by our side for Christmas? Probably just one, so we either have that person that we want, or listening to the same song for the millionth time just won’t do it. So, this time around, let’s change our title Xmas song to, let’s say, 8 Days of Christmas by Destiny’s Child and let’s sing about presents. Since it is still a mystery what you will be getting this year (even though you can hope for the best), let’s take a look at all the amazing gifts that you can give to someone you love. Christmas can be an overwhelming period as you can get a brain freeze from thinking of too many different options, so let’s go together through some of the most original that you can opt for.
A class subscription
So, one of the most original options for a gift is a class subscription. Yes, you probably might think “who would actually want to attend classes?” but then again, it is up to you to try and find the best course that the person you are buying the present for will like. For example, if the person is into cooking, then getting them a class subscription for a good culinary class is an amazing idea. It’s also a good idea to browse around through the Masterclass details and pick the one that is right for the person in question. Masterclass might be pricier than expected, but it is really worth it. Come on, having Anna Wintour giving you several lessons on entrepreneurship is not a small thing, is it?
A board game
Board games are always so much fun, but then again you really have to think (once again) about the person you are buying the gift for. There are different board games and different people, and you really want to be sure that they love board games, as buying a board game to someone who’s simply not into games is… well, a lame choice. However, if they are, try to find the most original option. First of all, there are great up-and-coming games such as Ticket to Ride or Catan, but you can also turn to the classics such as Monopoly, Risk or Clue.
A designer piece
Next up, we have something for all the people who love to show off, or who like to have something of value. Having designer clothes is very popular right now, but it is also quite expensive, so it’s perfectly normal that people do not spend a lot of money on designer clothes. But, it’s not only clothes that designers make, but accessories as well, which tend to be cheaper. Browsing online to find the best designer watches on the market is definitely a great idea to save time on looking for a present, and also find something that the person in question will actually like. Apart from watches (which, by the way, are a must-have accessory), you can also opt for necklaces, rings, and bracelets.
A cool waffle maker
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which means that this could be an amazing time to teach someone about it. It is also time for the New Year’s Resolutions, and “eating healthy” will be on the list of most of us. This being said, a good waffle maker might be an amazing present, and there are plenty of different reasons why. First of all, it is a very useful device that you can use to make the best and tastiest breakfasts in the world. But it’s also because of its shape, as there are plenty of different ones on the market – ranging from the ones shaped like Star Wars characters to emoji ones.
A beard bib
Ask any guy out there (or at least any bearded guy) and he’ll tell you that a beard bib is probably the smartest thing ever invented. However, plenty of guys think of it as a cool thing but choose not to get it and still end up leaving hair all over the bathroom floor. This means that Christmas might be a great time to open your guy friend’s horizons and get them a beard bib of the color that you want. You won’t just be getting something that they will actually use and love, but also something that will save their time on vacuuming the bathroom.
A poster set
This is something that not many people will think of, but it is one of those presents that everyone wants but does not want to spend money on it themselves. Each and every one of us has a favorite movie, book, artist, you name it, so this might be a great occasion to give them a poster set of something they will like. You can find plenty of different designs online or on Pinterest (and similar websites), so the only thing that you will have to do is find a printing shop and have it printed and framed. Easy peasy.
Christmas is indeed an amazing and magical time. But, it can be a bit daunting or nerve-wracking, especially if you have to spend a lot of time trying to find the best present for your friend. Luckily for you, opting for one of these will be a complete hit. You’re welcome and Merry Christmas!
