♫ Christmas time, Mistletoe and Wine
Children singing Christian rhyme
With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
A time to rejoice in the good that we see ♫
Okay, be honest. Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? ‘Cause I haven’t – and I am being so last minute this year because my trip to Paris in November completely wiped me out. Totally worth it, though.
I always find it difficult to shop for family because I always fall into the trap of buying them something similar that I bought them last year. My granddad already put in his request of no more slippers after I gave him slippers… for the third time in a row. ?
It’s what happens when you happen to work in a shoe shop at the time. What can I say?
But I’ve been doing some research this year and I’ve compiled a list of potential things you could buy for your family members. Even the ones you don’t like…
Mum’s are secretly big headed when their children get them something off the hook for Christmas like a holiday or fancy jewellery. But the way young people can’t even afford to move out, who has money for a holiday? So, here’s the next best thing! I mean, it’s definitely different.
Dad’s are the easiest to buy for, I swear. They’ll be entertained/amused/happy with anything you buy them – but what’s even better? You can get them something that will benefit you, as well. Make it about him, but really it’s an excuse for you let rip on your dad. Woop!
Also great for those spritely granddads – like mine. :3 Why not bring the whole family and going for paintballing for 8?!
This is the sort of gift you give to the auntie or uncle that you don’t really speak to, but you can get it personalised so it looks like you made some effort. You get me?
With Star Wars being released soon, this present makes me so much more excited. I would buy it for myself, honestly. But if you had a sibling or cousin who’s into Star Wars then this is the perfect gift! A crack wall sticker is even included. Eeep! You can also get BB-8, the Death Star and a Stormtrooper.
So, tell me. What are you guys planning to get your family for Christmas?
