5 Thoughtful Christmas Gift Ideas for the Important Women In Your Life
For many of us across the world, Christmas 2020 is going to go down in history as a memorable one thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, many of us will be forced to spend the festive season away from those our loved ones, whether it’s because you live in different countries and international travel restrictions make things difficult, or government social distancing rules won’t allow you to be together. However, this doesn’t mean Christmas is cancelled; these challenges are more reason to find special ways to make the women in your life feel even more loved than ever before. Whether it’s your mom, girlfriend, wing-woman or sister, here aresome gift ideas that can be enjoyed even when you can’t necessarily be together.
Her Favorite Sweet Treat
There has never been a better time to indulge in treats than at Christmas. After the year we’ve had, we all deserve something special to take the edge off this year. Whether it’s chocolate, donuts from her favorite bakery or a case of her favorite sweet wine, explore online delivery options and make sure she gets her favorite item.
Personalized Photo Puzzles
COVID-19 lockdowns forced us to discover new hobbiesor revisit old passion projects. Whether it was working your way through the family book collection or taking up painting, it was a time to be more creative with our time and relax a little. Puzzles became particularly popular. A great way to package this fun pursuit in a more thoughtful way is to have a personalized photo puzzle made. Find your favorite photograph – perhaps on a family holiday or of you guys dressed up for a night out – and let the gift recipient have hours of fun putting the puzzle together while reliving the good memories.
Pant Growing Kits
Plants and flowers can really add life to home and that little pop of colour or greenery can be just the thing to brighten up a loved one’s day. Having plants scattered around the house is even believed to have wonderful mental health benefits. Why not combine this gift with a little bit of a project and let her discover her green thumb? Having something to nurture is a great way to spend one’s free time. Every time she sees her little project blossoming, she’ll be sure to think of you as well.
A Virtual Wine Tasting Experience
It’s a shame you won’t be able to share a bottle of wine together over the festive season this year, but thanks to the power of technology, there is an alternative. Send her a case of different wines and order the same for yourself. You can then set up a zoom date and sample the wines together. While you may not be in the same room, you can create the next best thing and once the wine is flowing, it’ll certainly be an experience you’ll remember.
A Streaming Bundle
With all this extra time on our hands and limited opportunity to get out, everyone is looking for different forms of entertainment. A nice idea that’ll allow you to connect is to buy a streaming bundle for your favorite entertainment service. That way you can both binge on the same series and get caught up discussing the details over the phone. While you may not be able to watch your favorite festive movie together this Christmas Eve, this may be the next best alternative.
Sure, it won’t be the festive season any of us imagined this year, but this doesn’t mean it won’t be fun or memorable. With just a little bit of forethought and creativity, you’ll find that there are plenty of ways you can be with the important women in your life virtually. Who knows? All the additional effort might even make the season more meaningful!
