As you sit and write your beautiful and luxurious photo Christmas cards, to send to your family and friends, you may well be wondering how you will budget for the festive season. As the spirit of Christmas is found in gathering with loved ones and making happy memories, it’s really not essential to spend a fortune on presents in 2022.
If you do want to buy Christmas gifts for your partner, children, family and friends, it’s a good idea to set a limited on your spending. On a budget of £30 per person, you have countless options of fabulous gifts that your loved ones will love to receive.
A Gift For Your Partner
Buying gifts for the one who has your heart can sometimes be challenging. While your partner my say that they don’t want a present this year, deep down they do.
Surprise them with a budget-friendly gift that is absolutely priceless. Commission a custom ‘royal’ portrait that is digitally painted and professionally printed. A favourite photo of your partner can be magically transformed into a piece of modern art with legendary status. You decide whether you want your partner to look like the King or Queen of the castle, or an important historical figure.
Gifts For Children
When you’re writing your photo Christmas cards, encourage your children to pen their letter to Santa. Having access to their Christmas present wish list will help to simplify your present shopping experience.
It’s crucial that you make the right decision, when deciding what item to tick off their list. Especially if you’re sticking to a budget and you intend to buy one gift per child. Younger children usually ask Santa for the latest in toy trends, so you’ll need to select something that suits and is also within your price range. If your children are open-minded, you can stretch your budget further by buying arts and crafts materials, wall decals and accessories to decorate their bedroom, or handmade gifts that are personalised with their name.
Older children are likely to be fussier about what they would like to receive on Christmas Day. Explore their interests, hobbies and passions for great gift inspiration. Teenage girls are likely to be happy with any gift that allows their to express their personality, fashion style and taste. Ultra cute stationery, glitter airpods, a vlogging light, or an on-trend makeup set will definitely do the trick.
Impress a teenage son with a cool Christmas gift in 2022. Choose a retro Tamagotchi, an uber stylish phone case with universal grip, an illuminated gaming mouse, or a steering wheel adaptor for their favourite gaming device.
If you have a large brood, you can always buy a single present that everyone can share and enjoy.
Gifts For Relatives
To accompany the gorgeous photo Christmas cards that you send to your siblings, parents, aunts and uncles, you may want to choose a selection of personalised presents that are suitable for anyone.
The ladies in your family will be delighted to receive a beautiful piece of jewellery that is personalised with their unique birthstone gem. It’s fun to choose a style and design that suits everyone and to customise it accordingly. A elegant silver, gold, or rose gold plated bangle style bracelet that is embellished with a dangling, raw birthstone charm makes an excellent statement accessory that complements many different outfits. To avoid disappointment, do make sure that you correctly identify birthdays before buying birthstone bling.
It may not be as easy to Christmas shop for the gents in your life, as it is for the ladies.
A custom-made beer crate caddy is the ultimate Xmas gift for any relative who loves craft beer. Handmade from reclaimed and distressed timber, the practical multiple compartment caddy has a carry handle, and a handy bottle opener attached to the side. As this gift is well within your £30 budget, you can even splash out for a few bottles of favourite brew to include with it. Name personalisation is entirely optional.
Anyone who isn’t partial to a tipple, may prefer to receive a luxurious men’s spa hamper. Spoil him with an essential self-care package that includes: a facial exfoliator, pore strips, a face pack, eye patches, body wash, bath salts and herbal teas.
Gifts For Friends
Choosing presents for good friends is one of the most pleasurable Xmas shopping experiences that you can have. As close buddies, you share your likes and dislikes, as well as your expectations. To wow and impress your friends, on a budget, it’s a great idea to think inside the box.
Hamper style gifts that are beautifully presented in a stylish box typically contain a number of goodies, and often appear to have a much greater value that the money you have spent. To perfectly complement your stunning photo Christmas cards, shop for luxury items that represent a ‘hug in a box’. You can buy ready-made gift boxes that contain a heavenly scented candle, pulse point essential oils, relaxing bath products or skincare items that benefit an individual’s wellbeing.
If your friend has a sweet tooth, or a craving for savoury, you easily find foodie gift boxes that are packed with delicious treats. Alternatively, show someone how much you care by gifting them a ‘hug n a box’ that comprises of a variety of handpicked items that are associated with their hobby or interests.
