It happens every Christmas. There are always one or more people within your circle of friends and family who is an absolute nightmare to buy even a moderately useful gift for during the festive season.
It is no fun trying to work out what sort of gift will thrill and delight them during the Christmas season, especially when you know they will either scowl at you for suggesting a wish list, or they will unhappily demand the receipt back from you.
Statistically men are harder to buy for than women, Women can easily be given flowers, a fashionable garment or even a cuddly teddy bear can be an endearing gift, but giving ‘Cuddles’ the pink fluffy teddy bear to a man may not give you the same reaction you were expecting… or it might, you never know.
So what do you give the nightmare of a person?, Socks? Well not only have they got a sock drawer but they probably have enough for a sock room, as socks seems to be the safety present for most people, chocolate? It is all very well, but it doesn’t always look like that you have put the thought in, Vouchers? Well you may as well have not bothered, as Lee Evans quotes, Buying vouchers suggests ‘here you buy it I can’t be bothered’.
Being original is the key, repeating the same gift for every holiday not only gets a bit tedious the receiver will resent the gift more and more. A family member of mine told us he liked mars bars, for us this was the open door we had been waiting for. Every Christmas, birthday, father’s day, Easter mars bars were on repeat, Unfortunately the gift reached a sad end after 3 consecutive years, year in year out of mars bars coming out of their ears to the point that they now hate them. We have gone through 3 chocolate bars the same way, Mars, Twix and Curly Wurlys are all on the hate and banished gift list now, So a lesson to be learnt, spread out the gifts.
So here at flowers24hours, we are here to help, we have catered even for the trickiest of people, our gifts are brand new this season, and there should be something for everyone. We hope that our products will help get those creative juices flowing, even for those at a lost cause.
We have fine gifts from alcohol baskets to gourmet hampers.
Our Frosty’s Feast has been the favourite on our site this month, a basket of walnuts, marmalades, chutney and jam, is a gift that can be catered for anyone.
Christmas sophistication is a classic for the difficult man, titled a sophisticated gift for a sophisticated person’ this classy present contains a distinctive bottle of port and delicious pate.
Seasonal basket looks impressive, it is most definitely a thoughtful gift, a gift basket of fruit, chocolate, nuts and wine is always a winner in our books.
If you do not want to send gourmet and alcohol gifts, then we have some beautiful Christmas arrangements that can be perfect for anyone, our single poinsettia is a cheery present. Poinsettias vibrant colours certainly make an impression; Poinsettias can last for years if looked after properly.
If all of these gifts do not suit your friend or relative, then we have a limited addition spiele set which has been very popular over this festive season.
