It requires a little extra effort to find the perfect holiday gifts for loved ones. To show how much you value and appreciate your partner, family, and friends, it’s thoughtful to choose gifts that have a special meaning.
Holiday Gift Ideas
Instead of relying on the traditional shop-bought gifts that you buy every year, it really pays to consider ways in which you can personalize your presents. By swapping pre-made gift hampers for DIY selection boxes, old-fashioned photo albums for contemporary layflat photo books, and personalizing with decorative monograms, your holiday gift is likely to be the most memorable item received.
1. Special Gifts For The One You Love
Sentimental one-of-a-kind gifts that you have chosen with care will melt your beloved’s heart this Christmas.
If you have an unlimited budget, you can delight your significant other with the gift of a romantic getaway. Book the penthouse or honeymoon suite for two at an exclusive venue that will impress your partner, and organize everything so that you can whisk them away for a memorable short break in the New Year. Design a stylish DIY voucher to present to them on Christmas Day.
A Happily-Ever-After box that is filled with an array of gifts that you can enjoy together is a lovely holiday gift idea for the one you love. Spoil them with their favorite foodie and alcoholic beverage treats, a few music CDs, books, candles, sexy underwear/lingerie, massage oil, and toiletries, all wrapped up in a beautifully presented gift box, with a bow on top.
Alternatively, surprise your partner with an elegant bespoke photo album that’s filled with your favorite romantic photos of the two of you loved up. To make this stylish gift even more special and unique, opt for chic lay-flat photo books that boast a stunning magazine-style design, in a square or landscape format. Present a striking collection of double-page spread photographs of your most recent exotic holiday destination or of photographs that show and tell your heart-warming love story.
2. Perfect Gifts For Friends
Good friends deserve to receive holiday gifts that are as beautiful and unique as your friendship.
The Christmas holiday season is the perfect time to enjoy a little indulgence and decadence. Treat your dearest friend to luxurious silk pajamas and cashmere bed socks. A gorgeous handmade sweater in their favorite color is another luxury garment you could consider as a thoughtful seasonal gift.
If she’s a fashionista or a style diva, gift a chic personalized photo book that flaunts a lay flat magazine design. Your BFF will adore browsing at photos of herself looking like an absolute glamour queen. Make sure that the cover features your favorite portrait shot and is elegantly monogrammed.
Friends who have everything are notoriously tricky to buy for at any time of the year. A monogrammed gift is definitely the way to go if you want to impress a loved one. Choose a gift that reflects one of their interests or a hobby, and have it upscaled with the addition of gilded initials. A friend who loves music, cooking, or travel will be happy and grateful for the personalized leather AirPods case, handmade chopping board/cheese board, or passport cover that you have gifted them.
3. The Best Keepsake Gifts For The Family
When choosing a special holiday gift for members of your immediate family, it’s worth taking some time to think about things that you can enjoy together. ‘Experience’ gifts are far more precious and memorable than the latest must-have on-trend item that is easily forgotten once the festive period is over.
Spending quality time together post-Christmas is a lovely way to start a New Year. There’s a huge selection of ‘experience’ gifts for all of the family, including visits to theme parks and heritage sites, theatre shows, stadium tours, lunch river cruises, afternoon tea, walking tours, and sporting events. If you prefer something a little more daring, you can opt for treetop adventures or an escape room. Everyone will make their own unique memories on a family outing ‘experience’, and you’ll also have many great stories to share.
Stylishly contemporary layflat photo books are the perfect keepsake gift for the family, as they can be enjoyed today and tomorrow, and handed down for future generations to cherish at a later date. This Christmas, gift your family a beautiful photo book that is filled with a collection of your favorite photos. You can pick out a themed array of snaps, or create a stunning travelogue that displays the best photos of your family holidays. A family photo book of memories will be treasured for years to come.
A family portrait photography session is another excellent ‘experience’ gift that will long be remembered. You can reserve some pages in your personalized layflat photo books to showcase the gorgeous professional photo of parents, children, and grandparents happily posing together.
For a photo shoot with a difference, book a fantasy cosplay experience that allows you to dress up as your favorite superheroes. Youngsters will be excited to put on a costume and pose in front of a realistic movie backdrop. Before printing your photos, the photographer will add special effects that give the captured images a full-on Hollywood blockbuster treatment. Your superhero photographs definitely deserve the display glory of a double-page lay flat photo album spread. Just add some quirky captions, comments, and anecdotes to bring the unique family portrait images to life.
