How to choose the best Christmas gifts for friends

Christmas time can often be stressful. This is often because we put ourselves under too much pressure to find the perfect gift. When it comes to buy gifts for your friends, you want to find something memorable and more importantly, something your friends will really love. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect gift.

  • Think about their personality - If someone was to ask you to describe your friend in one word, that word will usually tell you a lot about the kind of gift they'd enjoy. Loud? Maybe they'd like something fun or an experience gift they can share with others. Sentimental? Perhaps think of a gift that immortalises a memory you shared.

  • Consider their age - The stage of life someone is in can help you think of practicable presents that suit their lifestyle. If they're middle aged with a family they might like something for their house or clothes that they wouldn't buy for themselves, if they're young they might like something fun and lighthearted, or a voucher from their favourite retailer to choose something for themselves.

  • What type of relationship do you have with them? - What is your relationship with the person you're buying the gift for? Is it a coworker who you don't know very well? If so stay away from personal gifts and get something general, like wine or a book. If they are someone very close to you try and think of something personal that shows you know them well, like a copy of their favourite album or something in their favourite colour.
