Although you really might not want to, there are some people in your life that you simply have to buy a Christmas gift for, as it would be super awkward if not. Of course, most people are going to be more than happy to get a nice gift for their best friends, partner and direct relatives, but there are a few people who are too close where you can’t get them anything, but not close enough for them to warrant a substantial gift. We’re talking about those people such as your work colleagues that you have to get a secret Santa for, babysitters that have dealt with your screaming child all year round and distant Aunt and Uncles.
If you’re struggling to find a suitable gift that won’t overstep the boundaries of the relationship, but that also won’t disappoint, check out some of the items on the list to inspire you and get the best gifts possible for the people in your life who are just, there.
Chocolates are perhaps one of the most common and safe small gifts people receive, and that’s because they’re often a crowd pleaser and you can hardly go wrong. They may not be very personal, and may not require that much thought to buy, but people are sure to be far happier receiving something they can tuck into than a pair of socks or slippers.
Be sure to avoid the more everyday chocolate items and try to get something a little unique and luxurious. Everyone can go to the store and get a huge slab of Hersey’s, but luxurious Belgium chocolate is a little bit harder to come by.
A good, unique chocolate option is to get traditional Austrian treats from dallmannconfections.com, as these are not only delicious, but they also have festive vibes that makes them work great as a small gift.
If some delicious chocolate won’t cut it, then the next best option is to get this person something that will be useful. In this category, you can get them something such as a belt, scarf, hat, gloves, but the ultimate utility present is a wallet or purse.
This item will be greatly appreciated, particularly if you’ve noticed that their current money sleeve is a little beat up. It’s a great gift to get someone where you may want to foster a relationship, as the wallet will be used pretty much every day, meaning that your generosity will be constantly remembered. This makes it quite a personal looking gift, but in truth, it’s really simple. Just pick a color that you think will be nice and wrap it up.
The final option is to get them something that can be displayed in the home, but the issue here is that due to you not being very close with this person, you probably don’t know what their home is like and what items will suit that decorations.
The best way around this is to get them a succulent, because no matter what style or color scheme their house is using, succulents fit in anywhere. They’re also super easy to look after, meaning that you’re not gifting them a chore, which other, larger plants like a bonsai tree might end up becoming.
