A SHOCKING new survey has revealed that more than 80 per cent of people lose sleep worrying about Christmas shopping and fretting about Christmas present ideas for friends and family. Added to this more than half of people report that they receive gifts that they will never use or appreciate. Sometimes you have to wonder if it wouldn’t be better to hand each other money a few weeks before Christmas so that we can buy our own gifts and think up our own Christmas present ideas.
But that wouldn’t be in the spirit of Christmas, now would it?
The sweetest Christmas present ideas
Here’s something to chew over: Can you think of anyone who doesn’t like a sweet or two, or maybe a bag or two? We might all have different flavours and textures that we prefer but everyone loves a sweet treat. So here’s what to buy all your friends and family for Christmas: Sweets. It’s as easy as that!
No more losing sleep, no more tearing your hair out, more writing list after hopeless Christmas present ideas list. Just buy everyone sweets.
Personalised Christmas present ideas
But there is still another potential clanger in the Christmas present ideas conundrum. According to the other part of the survey, 58% of people say that Christmas gifts bought specifically for them are useless. (Hmmm, are you thinking ungrateful meanies?!)
Well, don’t worry as we have the perfect way to make sure the gifts are specifically and only useful for the recipient!
Make sure your hamper, box, jar or bag of sweet treats is also personalised. A Quarter Of has a superlicious range of retro sweets that can be personalised. How about customised sweetie jars or personalised hampers? Other Christmas present ideas for your loved one include personalised wrapped lettered rock pieces, sweets in printed wrappers, logo lollipops and personalised gift boxes of delicious sweets.
Added to this, gift buyers can choose the type of colour of sweets that the (newly created) happy, smiley gift receiver will personally love. Does your friend adore jelly babies? Does your mum love aniseed? Does uncle give a thumbs up to liquorice? Does auntie have a thing for flying saucers?
The Christmas present ideas that will always score a smile
When your favourite friend or much loved relative opens their special gift from you on Christmas morning to find that it is displayed with their name or a special message and that all the sweets have been chosen to suit their taste they will suddenly find themselves in the 42% category. That is, people who like their gifts and can’t imagine a Christmas without that exact gift being chosen for them.
Now off to bed for a good night’s sleep: That’s your Christmas present ideas dilemma sorted!
