Christmas 2020 is going to be a lot different than any other Christmases that have come before, due to the pandemic and social distancing. It’s expected that we’ll be complying with social distancing to reduce the risk of spreading.
Fear not, as this won’t ruin your Christmas. Instead, we have five of the best gifting trends this year that are easy and ensure that you don’t have to put yourself at risk to gift them.
Easy and affordable, Letterbox gifts are perfect. They can contain a variety of things from flowers to wine, as they can easily fit through your letterbox without coming into contact. It’s the perfect way to send a gift to someone you love throughout a pandemic.
To say it’s been a stressful year is an understatement, and we’ve all realised that self-care is important. That’s why you should give something that will help someone’s mental health and allow them to take care of themselves. Whether it’s a new hobby or an uplifting present, the receiver will appreciate the care and consideration.
It’s time to save the planet and we all need to act fast. Thankfully, sustainability has been quite fashionable this year which makes it easier to gift fantastic, sustainable presents. It can be an eco-friendly gift box or a home-made care package, just ensure that it’s sustainable to help save the planet.
GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK
Christmas is definitely the time to give back and help out those less fortunate. That’s why buying a gift from a charity or that donates towards a good cause is so rewarding for the buyer and the recipient. A present that’s helped someone, always makes you feel better.
Last, but certainly not least, personalised gifts are a great idea for Christmas. Due to being able to physically touch all of those we love, that doesn’t mean that there is no love there. Personalised gifts show that you care and went the extra mile. Trust me, it’ll make your Gran smile to see someone so personal.
