Less than two weeks to go until Christmas Eve. Do you have all your present’s ready? Well, me neither. But I did come up with a bunch of gift ideas that I’d like to share with you. As a rule, I only ever give away gifts that I personally like. Also, I try to make it something that is not uncalled-for – our homes are filling up with too much stuff anyways.
I think books are always great presents, so are things that you can use up, like booze or fancy foods. I also love to give away little sets of things that do not only fit together but also really match the person receiving the gift. Last but not least I think something you made yourself or something personal like an invitation to dinner is a great present!
For more tangible suggestions, check my gift guide* for 5 different types of people that you might have in your family or circle of friends.
