It’s 10 more days till Christmas and we’re getting really excited! It’s the most wonderful time of the year where it’s filled with the wondrous joy of giving and expressing your love to others. However, we understand that it could be quite stressful to pick out gifts aside from social gathering preparations and our busy work schedules. We’d think, is our gift unique enough? Will our gift or secret Santa receiver like them? What if he or she doesn’t use it?
Fear not, because we’ve got some gift ideas lined up for you this year to help you through this festive season. Here’s a gift guide for 8 types of people that you may wanna express some love to. Leave it to us and enjoy! ;)
1. Frequent Travellers
If you travel frequently, you’ll know that comfort and convenience is key! We personally think MUJI has great travel essentials that can be an on-the-go pick-me-up. Gift that special someone a MUJI Travel Christmas Gift set available in all MUJI stores! You can even customise your own set of gift according to your recipients needs with MUJI’s gift wrapping products. MUJI has minimal, sleek and practical product designs that can assimilate easily into anyone’s lifestyle.

2. People who needs self-care time
People’s lives have never been busier by year 2017. No matter if it’s our main career or side hustlers, it’s easy to neglect self-caring time and get overwhelmed by workload. This Christmas, show your mom, those stressed out friends or your anxious home girl some love by gifting them some aromatherapy goodness!
Bath & Body Works has a great range of aromatherapy products that can suit anyone with different needs. No matter if it’s a need for stress relief, to focus, to be happy or etc, it includes body lotion, candles, hand soaps, body wash, body scrub and even fragrances. We’re using the Eucalyptus and Spearmint hand cream and it smells devine! 😍

3. Fashionistas & Beauty Connoisseurs
It can be tricky giving someone clothing items, but you can always opt for non-size sensitive items like FUNKY SOCKS! Matter Socks is a great option for those who likes taking fashion risks to stand out. Besides, what are the better ways to express your mood besides through your feet? They can be quite understated sometimes but that’s what gives them an element of surprise.

For your beauty connoisseurs, pamper them with a make up set. Here’s Benefit Cosmetic’s Beauty & The Bay. It makes a great gift because of its funky and unique crystal ball packaging, plus it makes a table decorative piece for your recipient. This set has a few full sized items for a full face make up to get them festive parties going! It features Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer as well.

4. Photography lovers
For all your photographer friends, get them a disposable camera! It’s fun, direct and easy to use since most of them are point and shoot cameras. Let them experience the joy of analogue photography and bring them back to the carefree old days where Instagram doesn’t exist. It can be a mindful and mindless practice at the same time to reduce social media comparisons and just have fun!
Alternatively, photographers seek for inspiration almost everywhere to make their work a reality. So why not bring some inspo to them? ;) Maybe some coffee table books or slow living magazines?

So here are some granolas for their Insta-worthy smoothie bowls and the ultimate breakfast and snack to fuel their day. Granola Geeks are healthier handmade granolas.

6. The Organised Person
Ana Tomy by The Alphabet Press sells minimal and sophisticated customised planners. If you’re gifting someone that’s an organised planner, this will ensure they plan and journal hassle free! If your recipient is into fancier and craftier planners, Ana Tomy has some pretty cute designs from their artist collaborations too. Best part is you can letter press their name or a special word that means a lot to them, to make the gift exclusively theirs.

7. Super MommiesThis season, appreciate and shower super mommies around you with all the love! They must’ve been so busy taking care of their infants and working at the same time that they forgot to relax. Send them some spa and massage gift vouchers for them to pamper themselves and their hubbies. Trust us, they would appreciate this precious alone time together. ;)

8. Young Children
What if you’re going to a family gathering and you’re not sure what to get your nieces and nephews? If they’re young children at a developing age, getting them books can be a good and useful gift. This story book suggestion targets young girls, but reading them to boys would educate them as well!There are so many educational books around, but this one’s our favourite yet in developing confident girls! This number one most funded book on Kickstarter talks about unconventional and empowering ways women stood for themselves and lead people to good causes (and not just marrying a rich and handsome prince and become a princess!). Give them a try, kids will love you for it after. ;)
And that’s it for our 2017 Christmas Gift Guide! We hope it helps you minimise some stressful and indecisive moments during this season of love and relaxation! You can now get yourself a cup of hot chocolate. Have a Merry Christmas!
