We’ve all heard the saying, giving is better than receiving, and that’s never truer than when you’ve got a corker of a present up your sleeve for your family and friends. Though that’s remarkably easier said than done; they may be your favourite people in the world, but sometimes narrowing down a thoughtful Christmas surprise for them is about as easy as juggling snow. As much as we love them, Christmas shopping for them can be painful, which is why we’re here to help.
Our edit’s pulled the very best of the best from our 140 stores to bring you a collection of gifting classics for him, for her and for the little ones in your life. We won’t leave Santa guessing, if it’s here, they’ll love it.
We’ve all got the following ladies in our lives: Miss Buys-Everything-She-Wants-Anyway; Miss Eye-Wateringly-Expensive-Taste and Miss-Takes-Everything-Back-to-the-Shop. As much as we love them, they’re the hardest bunch to wow with a great Christmas present.
Which is why we’ve pulled together a few little gifting classics that aren’t to be sniffed at. Candles, lingerie, makeup, and chocolates all make the prettiest of presents, especially at Christmas when retailers go the extra mile with fancy packing and presentation. There’ll be no need to keep the receipt, we promise.
Stumped by what to get the guys in your life this holiday season? There’s only so many times you can buy your dad a different colour tie, and do you really want to add another PlayStation game to your boyfriend’s already excessive collection? This year we’re helping you out with our pick of some slightly different ideas that they’ll actually want and love.
For Little Ones
One of the leading trends for Christmas 2016 in terms of decor is brights. Whilst we’ll always be a sucker for the good old red and white traditional Christmas, we have to admit the super bright shades of turquoise, cerise, canary yellow, tangerine and lime are catching our eye this Christmas. If you’ve got kids this is the perfect time to make the most of this trend. Let them pick the brightest, gaudiest of decorations, and take solace in the fact that this year, your tree will actually look pretty good adorned with a pink flamingo, a pineapple and a moose with a wreath for a scarf!
