Christmas is looming on the horizon, and along with it a perfect opportunity to demonstrate to the special people in your life that you care about them. Shopping for smaller gifts for friends can give them a warming glow, without breaking the bank, and there’s plenty of them to choose from, whether you’re shopping for a gift for a woman or a man. Let’s take a look at some of the cutest gift ideas.
A mug which comes with a personalised message is a great way to remind a friend you haven’t seen in awhile that you’re thinking of them. You might be in separate countries on opposite sides of the planet; you might be just down the road and unable to see one another because of lockdown restrictions. Whatever the case may be, a personalised mug means they’ll get your message every time they fix up a brew.
Keeping a daily journal has been linked with mental health benefits. It’s a practice that everyone should get into – and that’s much easier when the notebook you’re writing on is of a decent quality, and personalised to your particular tastes. There’s no shortage of quality lined notebooks out there, so pick out the one that’s best for you.
Kitchen supplies are always worthwhile, especially if you know that there’s an item in their kitchen that needs to be replaced. When it comes to cutesy potential, oven mitts and aprons rank highest, as they can be daubed with humorous imagery and captions that’ll provide a rush of positivity every time a batch of cookies needs to be whipped up.
Scented candles and diffusers can transform an interior, making it a much more pleasant space in which to unwind. There are hundreds of scents to choose from, so pick one that matches the tastes of the person you’re buying for.
If they’re a fan of cocktails, then why not get them the glass that a quality drink deserves? Balloon glasses make a great match for G&T, but they tend to take up a lot of cupboard space; go for a highball, a personalised wine glass, or a set of champagne flutes instead.
The gift here is the frame itself, but you can just as easily install some sentimental image or other inside. Get a treasured photo printed professionally, and it’ll be a constant fixture in the person’s hallway or kitchen. Doesn’t get much cuter than a picture of yourself!
