BLOGMAS - Gift Ideas For Christmas

You probably have started racking your brain on what to buy as a gift for your loved ones this Christmas. It is important to know that it's not really about the quality, quantity, or cost of the gift but the heart from which it comes.

When making decisions to surprise someone, it is necessary to make some observations that will help you in getting the perfect gift. This entails paying attention to the things they like, need, admire, and what they use regularly. Below, I will be walking you through tips that will guide you in picking great gifts this Christmas.

Exchange of gifts is a big part of the Christmas tradition, I can't tell you why because I don’t even know why. The idea of exchanging gifts can have your hands sweating in no time, especially when you don’t know the right gift to get. There a gazillion things in the market and you can pick one to present as a gift but it just does not work like that.

When gift shopping keeping the following at heart; everyone appreciates a thoughtful gift. Secondly, understanding the Love Language of the person you are shopping for.


I am yet to meet one who rolls their eyes at a thoughtful gift, if you do, that’s some weirdo stuff. When picking out gifts for anyone, put in the extra effort to learn what they need not just a random item.

Take note of conversations, their hobbies, things that can make their lifestyle easier. So instead of getting me that fancy dress, buy me a Kindle ebook reader. I will prefer books over a bottle of wine. My husband will prefer some cycling kits than a dinner plan in a fancy restaurant. Putting your thought into buying gifts will make the receiver feel loved and respected. 


I learned of love languages during my marriage counseling. We were encouraged to read a book called the 5 Love Languages®, it was written by Gary Chapman and I do encourage you to read this material if you are one who loves love. You might be like, “ what is the relationship between love languages and buying gifts?”. While you are trying to wrap your head around this, I love for you to know that every one of us has a love language. Regardless of if it is a child or adult, male or female, we have those moves that make us loosen our guards. We all want to be loved in different ways and different things work for different people.

Depending on our individual personality types, we may feel loved differently. Understanding and decoding these different ways of showing love will help take the guesswork out. The 5 Love Languages include; words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Understanding the love language of who you are shopping for will make a huge difference in picking the right gift this holiday.
