From Secret Santa to the Love of Your Life: The Ultimate Designer Gift List
The weather outside is frightful, and Mariah Carey is on the radio. In the immortal words of Noddy Holder — it’s Christmas! (Well, nearly). After 2020’s lockdown Christmas, everyone is looking forward to getting together with loved ones and having an incredible festive feast.
But before we can all start tucking into the turkey and pulling crackers, we need to get everyone gifts. Buying Christmas presents can be a challenge as there’s often a lot of presents to buy. On average, most of us spend around £500 a year on Christmas gifts — so you want to find the perfect presents.
If you’re a little behind schedule on buying presents, we’re here to help. Our guide has everything you need to find the perfect gift this Christmas. Whether you’re buying for an office secret Santa or the love of your life, our ultimate designer gift list has got you covered. Well done if you’ve already got everybody’s present for this year, but keep reading as you might find something to put on your Christmas list.
Find the Ultimate Gift Ideas This Christmas
Buying gifts for the people you love can be a challenge — an enjoyable one, but a challenge nonetheless. Depending on who you’re buying for, there’s a lot of pressure to find the perfect present. If you’re racking your brains trying to come up with great ideas, you’re certainly not alone.
Luckily, buying gifts isn’t a complete mystery; there’s actually some science to finding that perfect gift. Here are some science-backed tips for putting the perfect present under your tree this year:
- Don’t think about the price tag — Going for a costly gift is a go-to method for many Christmas shoppers. But this can build your expectations of a good reaction as we expect the receiver’s response to equal the price tag. This doesn’t mean you can’t get an expensive gift; just make sure it’s something they’ll love.
- Don’t stress about making the gift unique — If you’ve got the perfect unique gift idea, that’s amazing, but if you don’t, it’s not a problem. A recent study found that many people want mainstream gifts rather than something tailored to their personality.
Don’t be afraid to ask them what they want — This is a contentious piece of advice for anyone that loves the surprise of Christmas. But research shows that people are more appreciative of gifts they ask for than ones they don’t. If you want to keep the surprise, the best way to get what they want is to listen out for clues.
