How to give the perfect Christmas present (or for any other holiday)
you know what’s really difficult about Christmas? Trying not to shop for yourself while shopping for presents for your family and friends. This is why I mainly make gifts for people. Here’s how to be efficient when finding presents.
The main reason why I like Christmas is because it’s a great chance to give someone something meaningful to show that you care or even if you’re fighting with someone, you can give them a gift to show you care for them and can really help your relationship even!
How to figure out what your friend wants for Christmas:
If I’m having difficulty thinking of what to get a friend, I usually just ask them what they want and give them a few examples of what I’m getting/making for other people. I also like to go through DIY tutorial blogs and sites and see if I can find something they would like. (You can just google DIY tutorials)
How to remember what present you’re getting for each person:
I have a lot of trouble trying to remember what I’m getting for each person, so I like to keep a list on my computer. I write down the name of each person I’m getting a present for, with either the thing I’m buying for them of the link to a tutorial of what I’m making them.
Here’s an example of what my list looks like for my immediate family.
Mom: custom camera strap (LINK TO TUTORIAL HERE)
Dad: flies for fishing
Alex: star trek shirt
Every time I get something for someone, I cross that thing off the list (but don’t delete it, just in case). I also make a list on my phone of in a little notebook I carry around with me of what I need to buy or what supplies I need to make the presents.
I forgot to make one of my friends/family members a present and don’t have to to think up a present for them! What do I do?!?!?!?!?
I have done this so many times that I have had to come up with backup gifts that I do each year. (This will pretty much only be applicable for use if you have a tree that you hang ornaments on).
If you don’t know what a bauble is: it’s like those ornaments that are sphere, but you can buy them from any craft store during the holiday season and they will be either glass or plastic, but you can open them up and fill them with anything you want.
I usually buy a few of them and put in pictures or quotes along with sparkles and such and take them with me when I go to give presents out to my friends and family in case I forgot someone. This is so easy to do and doesn’t cost much at all. (A bauble on it’s own, you can probably find for as low as 99¢ each). They are extremely customizable and easy to make. I’m even giving one to my friend and it’s going to be filled with sparkles and cut-out pictures of hot guys.
I hoped I helped and happy holidays!
