What to buy your loved ones this Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve rounded up some gift ideas to help you out!

Concert tickets

There are so many incredible artists with concerts and tours lined up for 2022, and we just can’t wait to tick them off all of our bucket lists. Bear in mind that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, so there’s no guarantee that these shows will go ahead at their scheduled dates and times, but it’s worth buying them anyway as they’ll be rearranged and eventually performed. Whether it’s Lady Gaga and Adele or Elton John and Dua Lipa, we’re going to have to take out a loan to get through all of these incredible gigs. Other acts we really want to see perform in 2022 include Ed Sheeran, Celine Dion, Little Mix, and the virtual ABBA show. 

Initial artwork

Make your loved ones feel a million dollars with customized artwork that they can proudly display in their living room. The stunning alphabet art from Trendy Alphabet art is one of our favourite choices – you can select your own alphabet pieces to be displayed in a frame and spell out your loved one’s name, initials, or even a funny word that means something to the pair of you. Products like this are in high demand, so we recommend stocking up early this Christmas to ensure you get your hands on one before the big day – you won’t regret it! 

Cocktail ingredients 

Let’s face it, we could all do with a drink after the year we’ve had! If you’ve got a friend who likes the odd cocktail or two, why not make them a hamper packed with all of their favourite cocktail ingredients like orange juice, vodka, and syrups? Bonus points for adding a cocktail shaker and some cute recyclable straws and streamers to really get the party started over the festive period. The best part? A gift like that means your friend will be hosting a party and you’ll naturally be invited to sample a cocktail or two – check out these festive favourites!

Celebrity videos 

More and more celebrities are joining platforms like Cameo to make an extra buck and allow their fans to have personalised video messages delivered to their inbox. The truth is that they can be expensive – expect to pay anywhere from £50 to £500 for a personalised video – but it’s a cute way to wish a loved one a merry Christmas and will give them a virtual souvenir that they can hold onto for the rest of their lives. Some of the names we’ve seen on the platform include Perez Hilton, Miriam Margolyes, James Buckley, and Carole Baskin. Some stars, including Gavin and Stacey’s Mathew Horne, donate their proceeds to charity.
