With less than a month to go until Christmas, you should start your holiday shopping as soon as possible, before you’re scrambling to find that special gift and stuck with hefty shipping costs and delays. Getting Christmas gifts for the holidays can feel like a chore, but thanks to online ordering, it’s now easier than ever. Whether you’re shopping for your family members, your bestie, your office colleagues or your significant other, these appealing Christmas gift ideas are sure to make anyone’s holiday unforgettable.
Essential Oil Gift Set
Is there anyone you know who isn’t anxious these days? I assume the answer is no, so purchasing essential oils for your loved ones should be on top of your shopping list. Let’s be clear: these gift sets will not solve your problems or suddenly make your troubles go away, but they will provide a calming mood to your giftee’s day. It’s all about finding pockets of happiness in the midst of all the craziness.
The smell is the most primal of all our senses, and it is related to some of the brain’s oldest and deepest parts. Aromatherapy uses your sense of smell to soothe your mind and body, making essential oils the perfect present for anybody who is overworked or overburdened. When we inhale the smells of essential oils, we might experience emotional and even bodily responses, as well as strong memory recall of people and places. That’s why essential oil blends are referred to as the aromatic guardians of beauty and health.
These essential oil gift sets often comprise smaller sized bottles and are very simple to wrap and send over to someone’s door. Depending on the recipient’s persona, you can purchase an essential oil gift set with summer aromas, festive scents to get into the Christmas spirit, or a collection of 12 essential oils all placed in a lovely wooden box. This way you can introduce your loved ones to a variety of essential oils they can experiment with. If you’re not sure about the scents and flavours and haven’t tried them yourself, it’s best to go for the essential oils that many people enjoy like lavender, peppermint, tea tree, grapefruit, sweet orange, lemongrass and frankincense.
Bedroom Sheet Set
If your objective for this year’s Christmas shopping is to bring peace and comfort into someone’s life, then a bedding sheet set is an excellent match for that. You can also pair it with essential oil sets to improve the giftee’s feeling of relaxation throughout the holidays.
Another good reason to give linens as a gift is if you don’t know the recipient well enough. We are frequently invited to spend Christmas parties with new and distant family members who aren’t as close, making it difficult to purchase for them because you have no clue what they would like. However, no one can argue the value of a good night’s sleep, so gifting a high-quality set of bedding may be just what they need during this holiday season.
Your giftee should be able to sleep in luxury every night with sheet sets that will make them want to stay in bed all day. Thread counts for luxury sheets range from 300 to 1500, so double-check the numbers before buying a pair to guarantee you’re receiving the quality you’re looking for. In general, the greater the thread count, the softer the sheet will be and the more probable it will wear nicely with time.
Good sheets have numbers ranging from 200 to 800, with numbers sometimes exceeding 1,000 thread counts. The astronomical thread count numbers on a sheet do not always indicate the sheet’s quality. There are 200-count cotton sheets available that are beautifully made and feel like they have a larger thread count. To avoid any marketing gimmicks, experts recommend investing in cotton sheet sets in the 300 to 500 thread count range that are often available at reliable linen stores.
A Luxurious Bathrobe
There are various robe styles made of excellent quality fabrics to choose from – from a 100% cotton terry to a cotton-bamboo blend alternative. Whether you’re going for cotton terry or cotton bamboo materials, in the range of luxurious bathrobes you can find the best solution for you and your budget.
For a lighter embrace, choose a satin or micro chamois bathrobe. Or maybe you’re looking for a certain cloth texture. One of the primary reasons bathrobes are so popular gifts is that they may be worn throughout the year. From season to season, your giftee will appreciate being embraced in luxury. Nothing beats waking up or going to bed to the pleasant touch of a fluffy robe, whether it’s chilly or hot outdoors.
Except for being more high-end and high-thread, cotton robes tend to retain more heat than bamboo fabric. Bamboo robes are cooler and more pleasant to sleep in than cotton robes because of the inherent breathability of bamboo. Unlike cotton and silk, which require more work during manufacturing and are not as sustainable in the long term, bamboo grows on its own and can produce up to ten times more than cotton. It also takes less pesticide to grow, making it ideal for folks who are concerned about the environment.
A Reusable Water Bottle
A reusable water bottle isn’t just for ecologically concerned friends, coworkers, or family, it’s also for everyone who wants to maintain a certain daily water intake. Everyone, young and old, sports enthusiast or couch potato, needs to remain hydrated. Carrying a reusable water bottle encourages people to drink more water, so your personalized present can assist your loved one in leading a better lifestyle. Filling a reusable water bottle rather than using disposable plastic bottles will also save your friend lots of money down the road.
An Advent Calendar
And last but not least, advent calendars are a must-have holiday tradition, whether you’re searching for a fun activity to keep the kids engaged until Santa arrives or you simply want a little something to get yourself into the Christmas mood. Advent calendars are as much a part of the holiday season as Christmas trees, hanging lights, and chocolate. But what exactly is an Advent calendar, and why do we use them to count down the days until Christmas?
An Advent calendar helps countdown the days before Christmas by revealing a little object or devotional word on each day. Traditional Advent calendars are rectangular cards or boxes that may be hung on the wall or placed on a table and include miniature sealed doors or windows that must be opened in the correct order on each day of Advent. Advent calendars come in a variety of styles, ranging from religious devotional editions to those portraying Santa, winter wonderlands, and other contemporary Christmas themes. Aside from the distinctive style and design of each calendar, there are also differences based on what surprises are hidden behind the little windows for each day.
