Top Gifts for Loved Ones You Are Unable to Meet Up with This Christmas
20:49 27 December 2021
Unfortunately for everyone, not least the brave doctors and nurses on the frontline, the worldwide coronavirus pandemic appears not to be as managed and controlled as everyone first thought, and this means, especially with Christmas just around the corner, that there could well be loved ones that you are simply too worried about visiting this festive time.
However, this means that the Christmas present you bestow on absent friends, family members, and other loved ones should be extra special and also be practically possible to post in the mail or send through the internet.
With that being said, continue reading to discover the top gifts for loved ones you are unable or unwilling to risk meeting up with this Christmas.
1. Chocolate Fondue Set
For those close friends and family members that absolutely and completely understandably utterly adore all things chocolatey, a fondue set is one of the most perfect, all-in-one gifts to send them through the post this Christmas time.
Chocolate fondue fountains come in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes so you can be sure to find exactly the right one to suit your loved one’s preferences and tastes. There are many foodstuffs that one would perhaps not traditionally associate with fondue fountains, and aside from the usual strawberries and other pieces of fruit, cheese can be used instead of chocolate and apples, pears, bell peppers, bread, and even cauliflower and broccoli can be dipped.
2. Flower Bouquet
A traditional, but all together absolutely stunning Christmas present for your grandma, your aunt, and uncle or for anyone else in your life for that matter, is a beautiful bouquet of flowers which you have chosen and put together yourself online.
You can even have a bespoke bunch of flowers delivered today to anywhere in the country, just with a click of the finger, and delight and surprise your loved one when the postman knocks on the door.
3. Authentic Newspaper
For the older relatives and friends this Christmas time, a highly interesting and entertaining gift is an authentic newspaper from the day they were born or even from the Christmas day of that year.
Authentic newspapers, which are original editions, make for an absolutely fantastic keepsake and a truly sentimental and thoughtful Christmas present, and you could even choose to frame the newspaper (although admittedly, this would make the cost of the postage significantly higher)!
4. A Mindfulness Journal
Throughout the past two years, possibly in some way to do with the impact of the pandemic on people’s emotional health and wellbeing, self-care rituals and mindfulness is finally being given the respect and due consideration it has always needed but has generally failed to receive.
If your loved one is someone that has perhaps struggled with their mental health or even simply has a stressful and hectic daily schedule, practicing mindfulness with a journal every day is one of the best possible Christmas presents.
