9 Original Christmas Gift Ideas
Are you growing tired of giving the standard shower gel pack as a gift? Well, we’ve done some ground work and compiled unique gift ideas that will surprise your family and friends with their originality. Keep on reading for some wonderful personal and authentic gift ideas to mix things up this festive season. Remember, if you don’t want to spend time in crowded malls trying to find that perfect gift – you can use our unbeatable fibre internet to search the web from the comfort of your couch!
1.) Your 5 favourite books.
Suitable for: your bookworm brother
Pick 5 of your favourite books (they can be selected from a second hand book store!) and wrap them in brown paper. Add a note with a prompt on the front that will hint at the best occasion to read each given book: e.g. “read this when you’re feeling sad”, “ read this for a little drama” etc.)
2.) A vase and a monthly flower subscription.
Suitable for: your beloved mother
Talk about giving a gift that keeps on giving! Surprise your mother with a beautiful handmade vase and then some: a monthly subscription to a flower delivery service, so that she can find joy in a new bouquet every month.
3.) Personal Stationary.
Suitable for: your father
Here’s a fresh take on the annual diary or desk planner: use your father’s initials (or simply his full name) to design personalised stationery. Have it produced and gift it together with a sophisticated pen and he’ll be set for a good start to the new year.
4.) A custom compilation of wines.
Suitable for: your best friend
Compile a custom collection of 5 bottles of wines that you and your friend have shared over the years. Add a note to each bottle to describe which memorable occasion you shared each bottle on. What a lovely way to commemorate a long friendship (and enjoy some wine together)!
5.) Fibre Internet Subscription.
Suitable for: someone you really love
Hear us out here. Instead of gifting yet another box of chocolates, why not gift something that the recipient both wants AND needs? How about surprising your hard-working wife with the speedy internet connection that she needs to work from home (and stream her favourite series)?

6.) A tailor-made pamper pack.
Suitable for:your sister or aunt
How about a creative spin on the generic shower gel gift pack? Pick a chic gift box and fill it with small but useful spoils to treat the recipient. Think big woolly socks, a jade face roller, luxurious bubble bath, sheet face masks, exotic chocolate, a massage voucher… the options are endless!
7.) Custom “Merch”
Suitable for: your brother
Use the recipient’s signature or one of his doodles to design and produce customised merch. Pick a T-shirt and a cap (or any other clothing items) and have the signature/doodle embroidered onto them to create a gift that he will be proud to wear!
8.) A festive tart in a tart dish.
Suitable for: your aunt or cousin
There’s nothing quite like a delicious home-baked treat to soothe the soul. Find a unique, locally-made tart dish and gift it together with a home-made tart. You might want to consider a pecan nut tart, an apple tart or if you’re particularly confident in the kitchen something more exotic such as a Gingerbread Amaretto Chocolate tart
6.) Custom-made mugs.
Suitable for: your grandparents
Find your local potter and order stylish mugs, complete with the recipients’ names on. Not only will you be supporting local, but you’ll also make the recipients feel particularly special – who doesn’t like drinking from a mug with their name on!
