Shopping for a holiday gift for that special someone can turn even the most cheerful of us elves into grinches. Whether it’s due to a limited budget, time constraints, or you’re simply at a loss for gift ideas, it may take more than just a trip to the mall to find that perfect gift. Sometimes all we need is a little extra help in finding the gift that will give your boo that look on Christmas morning that says “Santa Baby, you did good”. Here are some timeless holiday gift ideas for men and women that are sure to delight.
Traditionally women are known to swoon over all things sparkly; lucky for you guys, that hasn’t changed. So if you are in a bind as to what to get your lady, look no further than the jewelry department. For a woman with a classic sense of fashion, a set of simple diamond earrings or a floating pendant necklace is a gift that will never go out of style. Tiffany’s has an assortment of simple, elegant jewelry with prices starting around $100. Not a jewelry gal? How about a new hand bag. Consider the MICHAEL, by Michael Kors Large Colgate Grommet Pebbled Leather Tote or the Madison Leather Isabelle Shoulder Bag by Coach. Both come in an array of bright colours that will compliment any woman’s wardrobe.
The holidays are a time to spend with loved ones, so a gift certificate for a couple’s massage is a romantic way to spend time. If you have money to burn, you could turn your gift into a vacation with a trip to a Nordic spa or resort. On a budget? Try a couple’s hot stone massage.
If you’re like me, shopping for the man in your life can be a challenge. After the go-to gift of a new tie or watch, I used to be oblivious as to what else they might want. Here are some hints to help you cross that gentleman’s name off your list.
Sports events tickets are a tried and true gift that will not disappoint, and this way you get to go to the game too! A great add-on gift would be to order a jersey with your man’s favourite player.
These days it’s not unusual for a man to want to pamper himself, and many spas offer spa packages for men that any guy would enjoy, even if he wouldn’t admit it. Many of the packages include a facial, manicure, pedicure and massage. If your man is a spa enthusiast this gift will be a hit.
Also for the man who enjoys looking his best, give him a scent to match! Cologne preference
varies from person to person but my personal favourites are Chanel Pour Monsieur Eau De Toilette and Oud Wood by Tom Ford. They’re available wherever fine colognes are sold.
So there you have it folks, just a few helpful hints to start you on your holiday shopping journey this season.
