Before you all think I'm crazy, I know we are only in October still but Christmas will be here before we know it! Every year I usually leave it till the last minute well not this year - that's right I'm being organised and ordering most of the gifts online this month! The one thing I'm usually not so good at is deciding what to buy for people, especially family members I don't see anymore as some can be rather awkward to buy for.
I've put together a little gift guide to hopefully help you gather some ideas for people who you usually find hard to buy for.
These amazing family portraits by Blackshoe will put a smile on anyone's face. They will make a lovely gift for everyone. I just had to share them with you all. I recently came across them on Facebook and couldn't resist buying a few.
You can't go wrong with a Filofax for the stationary lover. There are so many pretty and simple designs there's something to suit everyones taste.
Do your kids love playing outdoors? Maybe a new pair of boots or a warm winter hat would make a good gift in your family. It's essential to keep kids warn whilst playing outdoor during the winter especially their heads, hands and feet. Why not buy a pair of kid's snow boots to keep your little one's feet nice and warm.
Why not treat a loved one to a new watch. There are so many watches to choose from you'll be sure to find something to match their taste. These Ice Watches come in a wide range of colours and are available for both adults and children.
The avid reader today will most likely own a kindle. They are convenient for travelling and when out and about instead of carrying numerous books in your luggage. If you know a kindle reader in your family or circle of friends why not treat them to a nice kindle case, Etsy have a gorgeous range for everybody and are all handmade!
Do you know a baking lover? Why not treat them to a Tala bakeware gift for their kitchen. The vintage themed Tala 1960's bakeware collection will add a splash of colour and funkiness to their household. From biscuit jars to sugar shakers you'll be sure to find something to their taste.
LED TV'S are better suited to certain types of TV due to the high refresh rates especially in gaming. If you have a partner or son who loves gaming then this would be a fantastic gift for them!
Last but not least, something slightly different than your usual gift, why not treat someone with a gothic interest to a stay at Whitby holiday cottages. Whitby is a popular town for those who have an interest in gothic history. There are many day trips which include a visit to the Dracula experience and guided ghost walk around the town.
Can't think of what to get your little ones or some one else's children this year? Pyjamas are a easy gift to buy and a safe option as you never know what toys they may already have. Why not buy some Christmas pj's? I found these ones on Loveaboo and recently bought Amelia some.
