5 Tips that Will Guarantee You Find the Perfect Christmas Gift

Hi Everyone,

Sitting here in my favourite place about to wrap Christmas presents. I don’t know about you but for me deciding what to get my family and friends for Christmas has always been one of the hardest things. Ever so conscious of not buying something which they will never use or in reality not even like…

Perhaps I am writing for me, 5 very simple tips to help ensure I get the right gift for everyone – haha!

In addition a few gift suggestions from Kneipp. You may have read my previous post about my trip to Frankfurt with Kneipp (link here). Having learnt so much about the history of the company and the wellness/sustainability thought that goes behind each and every product, I have become a real fan.

Keep reading for more about 5 tips that will guarantee you find the perfect Christmas gift.


5 Tips that Will Guarantee You Find the Perfect Christmas Gift

Remember to keep reading past the tips for a few of my personal gift favourites from Kneipp this year. Such an easy way to gift something sustainable and useful and so very fairly priced.

If you have already seen Kneipp products in you local store let me tell you there are many more available online.  I really love reading the monthly wellness tips and looking into their various wellness courses.

5 Tips:

1. Reflect on what people have said throughout the year

This is a great thing to do if you are looking for a surprise gift someone would never think they are getting.

2. Evaluate the current mood or situation the person is in

How a person is currently feeling gives us great clues as to what to give them. Either to make them feel better or to help them on the path they are wanting to follow.

3. Focus on Hobbies

You can’t go wrong by gifting something a person can use as part of their hobby. Can a golfer ever have enough golf balls (silly but true example).

4. Collections

Adding to someones existing collection is always an easy present.

5. Think out of the box and go beyond a material present

The gift of time or a special experience can be one of the most special things you ever give someone. Especially if they already appear to have it all!

Favourite Kneipp Gift Ideas:

Herbal Teas

These are so good – my daughter and I seem to be surviving off these this Winter.

Scented Candles

I’m a strong believer in the effect of these. Speaking from experience when a few weeks everyone seemed to be in a bad mood here…I then lit the “Goodbye Stress” candle and within half an hour the mood had improved dramatically… was it coincidence or was it the candle?
