With every Christmas, it seems to get harder to find the right presents for family and friends. It is like we are running out of ideas. Plus: Everyone seems to have everything already. Finding the right gifts for your loved ones is probably becoming the most stressful part of the advent season. But it doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips on how you can master the art of giving – without anxiety, pinky promise.

Be Prepared

Preparation is everything. Does this sound familiar to you: All year round you have an idea what to buy your mum for Christmas and then, when December hits, it is like someone just deleted the gift hard drive in your brain. In this case, it helps to have a gift section in your notebook or even a list on your phone will do. Log your ideas. Log when people drop wishes in a conversation. 

Stop Competing

Your present doesn’t need to be bigger, better or more expensive than everyone else’s. Try not to make a competition out of it and focus on what you think might be something the other person enjoys. This also applies to compete with yourself. Christmas is not a career, it is a chance to spend some time with your dearest. Presents are just the icing on the cake. 

Choose Personal

If in doubt – go with something personal. Try to find out what your special someone likes, which scent they love, what kind of skincare they use. Also, initials are always an easy way to gift more personal. Another approach is to gently give a direction. Let’s say the presentee wanted to live a more sustainable lifestyle you could support it by getting some eco-friendly items such as soap bars or a recycled toothbrush. There is no limit to your creativity as long as you keep the other person in mind.
