24 Nov Top 10 Gift Ideas to Bring Joy and Happiness This Christmas!!
We’re just under a month away from Christmas and it’s time to start shopping for gifts for him or her! Christmas shopping can be stressful. We’ve all been there; deciding what gift to get someone, hoping they will love the gift and worrying about our budget. If you’re looking for gift ideas this Christmas that’ll fill your friends and family’s hearts with joy without breaking the bank, then you’ve come to the right place!
From spa packages to FitBit, these gifts are sure to spread the happiness around. Get your pens and shopping lists out because we’ve compiled 10 brilliant gift ideas for you this Christmas, so Santa doesn’t have to (you’re welcome, Santa!).
1. The gift of self-love with a spa package
‘Me’ time is important, especially during the Christmas season. Spending too much time shopping, cooking, planning, and inviting guests over can get stressful. We could all use a little pampering, and that’s why we recommend a spa package as a Christmas gift!
Self-care is a woman’s best friend. Nothing will melt problems away more than a good old bath milk, a relaxing face mask, and a set of massage oils. Help your friend kick back with a spa package that will soothe their mind and rejuvenate their spirit! Check out Body Shop’s fabulous spa package products here!
2. Christmas outfits and jumpers for those who love fashion
No matter how old you get, getting dressed for Christmas will never stop being fun! Everyone gets the fashion memo for Christmas. You can’t go wrong with buying Christmas-themed jumpers, pajamas, and onesies for the whole family. The kids especially will love the comfort and style!
There is just something about the whole family wearing matching pajamas and drinking a nice cup of hot chocolate together — it’s what the holidays is all about.
M&S has a great selection of gorgeous looking Christmas clothes! These items of clothing are sartorial and a great addition to the wardrobe, not to mention crucial for those beautiful Christmas mornings! You can find the range of festive clothing here.
3. Give them a memorable digital greetings and eGift experience with JiveBird
The holiday season can often make us feel overwhelmed, and all we need sometimes is a Christmas gift that is thoughtful, instant and special. This is where JiveBird comes into play.
JiveBird lets you choose an eGift from dozens of top brands such as Amazon, M&S, River Island, New Look, John Lewis (just wouldn’t be Christmas without it, right?), and many more. Our eGift feature is optional but it’s suitable for every taste! Whether it’s a gift for her or him, our choice of brands will make your shopping easier.
We aren’t just an eGift app, however. We are an all-in-one greetings app meaning you can also attach a voice message, a song, an eCard or selfie just before sending the eGift to that special someone! Creating a JiveBird is heartfelt, fun to use and personal!
With the post offices being closed from the 17th, JiveBird is a convenient app to use because you can send it from the comfort of your sofa at any time. It’s 100% digital and it will leave the recipient grinning from ear to ear!
Plus, the first two JiveBirds are FREE! And then only 99p each.

4. Add to their Handbag collection
Handbag trends change as much as the weather. While the style and elegance are important, it’s the convenience of a handbag that makes it a thoughtful Christmas gift. Pack of chewing gum? Keys? Perfume? Make up? Sainsbury’s club card? A luxurious handbag is needed to carry all these items!
Marks & Spencer have a beautiful range of handbags that will get compliments flooding in the way of the lucky handbag-owner! Click here to have a look at their handbags!
5. Travel Backpacks for those who love adventures
Do you know someone who is planning to go to a big trip? If you do, then travel backpacks are a must-have! Once the new year arrives, opportunities for holidays are in abundance, especially with lockdowns and travel restrictions easing up around the world!
We mentioned the convenience handbags bring but backpacks are triple the convenience as they are efficient in packing a lot of items into the right space. You can fit in laptops, clothes, passport, device chargers and more! Amazon have an amazing range of backpacks. Check them out here!
The best thing about backpacks is the longevity they bring, as the quality will last through many fun trips and adventures!
6. Make their Christmas glamorous with Beauty advent calendars
The traditional chocolate calendars are a treat but how about some beauty advent calendars to add glam to the holiday season? We highly recommend checking out Amazon’s beauty advent calendar that has 24 products including nail products, make-up cosmetics, and skin care!
These products will no doubt leave a lucky lady shining as bright asa Christmas tree, and they’re perfect for your best friends who love all things beauty!
7. Update their Perfume collection
If someone on your list loves perfume, then they’ll be charmed by this gift idea! That Christmas morning when presents are being opened is a gleeful moment, and it gets better once you find a perfume under the Christmas tree!
Nobody can resist owning a perfume collection and smelling wonderful. We suggest New Look’s Dusk perfume products that are not only a bargain, but are elegant and carry a great scent of patchouli as well! Have a look here
8. Coffee Maker for the coffee lovers!
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year but as we mentioned before, it can also be overwhelming. Sometimes we could do with a coffee to get through the day and rejuvenate. We all have a coffee-obsessed friend that calls us to ask if we want anything from Starbucks. It is time to repay those coffee lovers with a coffee maker!
They’ll feel warm from the first sip from their new coffee maker and they will never stop thanking you for getting them this thoughtful gift! Argos has a great espresso coffee machine which you can find here. This machine is easy to use and includes a steaming wand, so they can enjoy their beautifully brewed home-made lattes and cappuccinos without a fuss.
9. FitBit for those who want to shake off the Christmas weight!
The proof is in the (Christmas) pudding. People love to eat on Christmas season and as foodies, we don’t judge them! We all eat a roast Christmas Turkey with no regrets.
People also like listing ‘exercise’ as their number one New Year’s resolutions.
If your husband plans to eat one too many mince pies, then a FitBit is the ideal gift to get him this Christmas! It will keep track of steps, active minutes, calories burned, and monitor the diet well! It’s the perfect motivation tool and no doubt will make life easier for the exercise fanatics out there! You can find the best FitBit at Curry’s PC world here
10. Upgrade their kitchen equipment with a Crock-Pot Express Multi Cooker
Sometimes what people look for in a gift is something that makes their daily routine easier, and something that drastically upgrades their kitchen.
Therefore, we are suggesting John Lewis’ Crock-pot Express Cooker as our 10th gift idea this Christmas! John Lewis love a Christmas advert (as do we!) but they also sell some high quality multi-cookers that make cooking dinner easy!
Perfect for anyone who has a busy schedule and needs a meal ready in an efficient way. For instance, the multi cooker can cook a whole chicken in 30 minutes! There is the option of pressure cooking and slow cooking. It’s a must-have and we could be here all day singing its praises! Your loved ones are in a treat if this is the gift you go for!
It’s important to remember it’s the thought that counts when buying gifts. Christmas gifts don’t always have to be expensive. Sending a JiveBird greeting and eGift will warm their hearts and bring a smile to their face as they hear your voice paired with their favourite song. Alternatively, a perfume or a coffee maker can put smiles on faces too.
Whatever you get them, we hope you have fun with your Christmas shopping, and we’re sure you’ll get your family and friends the most memorable gifts!
Now that we’ve given you our top 10 gift ideas this Christmas, you know what to do.
