When it comes to searching for gifts for those we care about, the holidays can be a busy time as we want to impress these people just how special they are to us. Here is our 2020 holiday gift guide which includes gifts that range from useful to stylish to cool to suit everyone on your list.
This sounds like a Christmas stocking gift but it is a good way to introduce your gift of a vacation, whether a night away or a week in the Caribbean. Choose a stylish or fun tag that is instantly identifiable on the carousel, with one larger tag for a suitcase and a smaller size for a carry-on bags. There are designer leather tags or order a customized pair, especially for the one you love.
Classic cufflinks with a round enamel profile embedded in silver are quintessentially elegant and match any smart ensemble. Jewelry gifts for her are many and varied, but check what her favorite pieces are so you can get something in the same style, don’t buy a bracelet if you have never seen jewelry on her wrist. Bold colors are on-trend, so choose her favorite and add diamonds to the design too.
Embellish a credit cardholder with your recipient’s name, initials or monogram. It is now easy to get this done with many artists and craftspeople online. An alternative is to choose a cardholder with interior card slots from their favorite designer which is embellished with the brand’s logo and beautifully presented in a box. An understated yet sophisticated design in a small size to carry up to four cards is perfect for nights out.
Everyone wants to protect their phone, and you can help them do this with a phone case. Whilst we wait for French researchers to move on from their prototype that mimics the touch feedback of human skin, there are dozens of designs to cover all styles from mixed graphics, to classic styles in leather or high-quality polycarbonate material.
Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, but pure leather driving gloves provide a sophisticated winter style. Choose soft black leather, perforated fingers and keyhole snap fastenings for a timeless finish. This gift is not only sleek and stylish, but they are also practical too and make a handsome gift. Available for men and women, choose leather golfing or cycling gloves to protect your loved one’s hands from blisters and calluses.
The holidays are a time to gift a touch of glamour to the women in your life. An Art Deco hair-comb or another elegant headpiece will lift every outfit and if she likes bold jewelry, consider a statement hair comb in her favorite color.
For young girls, add some glamour to her everyday look with velvet and glitter hair clips or bows inspired by Belle or Minnie Mouse. For a fun gift to get into the holiday spirit gift beard bells to those hirsute men in your life.
Create a mystery bag of goodies you know your loved one will adore. For example, if you have an Australian friend to buy for, gift a jar of vegemite if that is difficult to the source where they live and create a hamper of other Aussie goodies. There may be a vinyl they have been searching for or some other items that you know they would love but may not be able to justify buying for themselves.
