This year has been a difficult one for most people and as Christmas is approaching many people want to make it as special and memorable as they can. As so many people won’t be seeing their families this year and won’t be able to enjoy other normal Christmas traditions because of COVID-19, then presents are going to be one way to make it special. However, rather than just splashing out on Amazon which is very tempting and will save you lots of time, this year you could kill two birds with one stone and buy some great gifts which are also meaningful. Here are a few meaningful gift ideas to get you started.
Why Not Consider These Gift Ideas For Your Loved Ones This Christmas
Buying jewellery is always a meaningful present as it’s something that you will give to someone who will then think of you every time they wear it. While many people won’t want to remember this year, it is one that will go down in history so having some jewellery to remember it or perhaps something which is engraved to tell someone that you love them and they are not alone could be really helpful. You can also find jewellery which has a meaning, take the history of ChloBo for example, this is meaningful jewellery, and if the story resonates with you or someone you know, then it could be a great Christmas gift.
This year many small businesses have really suffered and if you want to do your bit to help them out then buy your Christmas presents from them. Seek out local businesses on Facebook and find out what they sell. Not only will you support local but by doing this, you’ll find a load of ideas for Christmas presents you didn’t know about. You will find plenty of handmade gifts which can really add that personal, unique and meaningful touch to the presents you’re giving.
Another way you can support local, and support charities is to search for your Christmas presents in charity shops. If you’re not someone who shops in charity shops regularly, then you might think that all you will find is bobbly old second-hand jumpers. This couldn’t be further from the truth, you can find so many things in Charity shops, and not everything is second-hand. Why not take some time to go and have a look in your local charity shops and give it a chance, you might be very surprised and end up getting some real bargains.
There are many ways you can create a personal present yourself and at the same time supporting local businesses. For example, you could take yourself off for a very relaxing afternoon at a pottery cafe and paint someone a mug or a bowl. You could find a small business who specialises in personalising things and get your loved one a canvas tote with a portrait of their dog on it, a special COVID-19 bear or something you found in a charity shop you could have it personalised. There are so many choices; you can find something meaningful and unique for everyone.
