6 Meaningful Christmas Gift Ideas To Surprise Your Loved One With


With Christmas right around the corner, there is no more time to procrastinate. In less than a month, Christmas will be upon us, so you better get moving and figure out what gifts you are getting for your loved ones this year. If you are not particularly good at picking out gifts, or you are stumped about what to get a loved one this year since it seems like you got them everything up to now, these 6 gifts are going to help you out. The following list is full of amazing ideas including some that can be adjusted and used for different ages and interests.

1. Scrapbook/Journal

The most meaningful gift to some people is good memories. Crafting a scrapbook or journal and filling it with memories of the two of you together is bound to bring happiness and joy to your loved one. You can even leave some pages of the scrapbook empty for future adventures and memories that this person can add. Not only will this scrapbook bring up good times, it will also be an unforgettable gift that will remain unbeatable for years to come.

2. Dessert Box

Who doesn’t love a little specialty sweetness around the holidays? If your loved one is fond of sweets or loves making desserts, this is the perfect gift idea for them. You can create a kit of raw materials and ingredients for them to enjoy the process of making their favorite desserts, or you can put a box together, including a variety of desserts they enjoy. The items that you choose to include in your Christmas dessert boxes might require some creative arranging though. You will need to get an appropriately sized box, as well as any decorations to dress up the desserts you will be including in their gift package. If your loved one does not enjoy desserts, you can make them a hot chocolate box or a tea-making kit; the possibilities are endless.

3. A Buddha Board

A meaningful gift shows that you know your loved one’s interests and want to show them that you care about these interests. A buddha board is perfect for anyone interested in art and enjoys calming activities such as coloring mandalas. All you need is a brush, a board, and some water. Your drawing shows up when you dip the brush in water and start using it on the canvas. After a while, when the board dries, the painting disappears and the canvas can be reused endlessly. This is also a great gift for children who enjoy drawing and it also teaches them patience since they have to wait for the board to dry to reuse it.

4. Portable Coffee Maker

If your loved one is a coffee addict then a portable coffee maker is what they need. There are different brands that have their own version of this product. The basic idea of this product is you can get a cup of joe whenever you are craving it. Because it is portable, it is compact and only gives you a shot or two of espresso. However, in a pinch, it will work out amazingly. It is also great for people who enjoy camping and don’t want a ton of supplies with them.

5. Supplies for a Hobby

Hobbies are an important part of everyone’s lives. A gift that shows your care needs to be meaningful. There isn’t a gift that shows care more than a gift that is relevant to your loved one’s favorite hobby. For example, if your loved one enjoys camping then you can gift them with camping supplies. Similarly, if your loved one is an avid golfer, you can get them a new club. No matter what hobby your loved one has, you are bound to find supplies for them to use in their hobbies.

6. Smart Watch

The last but definitely not least gift idea that you could get for a loved one is a smartwatch. Smartwatches can be quite helpful for different situations. Not only is it helpful for those who are concerned with fitness, but it can be great for any business person to check notifications on the go. Some smartwatches also make it easier for people to take photos by displaying what the camera is seeing on the watch’s display screen.

Christmas gifts do not have to be expensive to be appreciated. As long as the present is chosen with love and care in mind, it will be well-received. If you are hesitant and do not know what to get your loved one, the list of gifts above is going to broaden your thought processes and will give you more options.
