Ah, Christmas, the amazing period of carols, traditions, lots of tasty food, and, of course, gifts. Shopping during this period can be very hard, since you are not sure what thoughtful present to get that would make the person understand how truly and deeply you value them. If you happen to be friends with someone who says that they don’t want anything for Christmas but then get mad when you actually don’t get them a present, here are a few gift ideas that will hopefully make your shopping easier this season.
Mini printer for photos
Now this is really something that one would want for himself, but wouldn’t necessarily buy. A mini printer that connects to your phone and can print any photo is high resolution is a real find. They are not too expensive, or at least much more affordable than a professional camera, and they also come in many colors and sizes. So small that it can be taken anywhere, your friend will definitely enjoy it. Take a picture together on Christmas morning and that photo is sure to be treasured for a lifetime.
And while we’re still discussing technology, a projector is once again something that absolutely everyone can enjoy. All you need for it to work is a white wall or even some sheets. And if your friend somehow has none of these, even the ceiling can serve as a screen. Some of them are small and portable, which makes them suitable for camping and travelling, while others can be really heavy, best used at home
There’s nothing better for winter than a good old knitted sweater. A classic crew neck or turtleneck sweater made of high-quality wool is something that everyone needs in their wardrobe, even that friend of yours that never wants anything for Christmas. It is practical, comfortable, breathable, and overall, a delight to wear. Although a bit pricey, it is an amazing present for someone whom you deeply love. You can look for one in the stores that sell woolen products or you can simply order a wool knit Aran sweater at Tara Irish Clothing, which is renowned for making high quality knitted Irish sweaters.
If you’re tired of seeing all these threats that recommend buying gloves and mittens (not that they are not necessary, just a bit too basic) and you want to get your friend something really special, get them a hand warmer! Just like the printer, it is not something you’d think about purchasing for yourself, but you always wish you had one when your hands are freezing. Hand warmers come in many shapes and designs, you can choose from hearts, animals, or basic, neutral-colored ones.
A humidifier is a wonderful device to have at home, especially if you have small kids or if you’re prone to asthma and other respiratory diseases. There are lots of different types, and they come in all shapes and sizes, from basic plastic ones to more expensive metal or wooden ones that look much better as a part of the interior design. Some water, a few drops of essential oils and voila, the house smells amazing and the air is not as dry and dusty as it used to be. Who wouldn’t want that?
