Most of us today live in a society that is very much "want it now, get it now" and even for most kids this seems to be the case. Certainly back in my childhood days if we wanted something we generally had to either save up our pocket money for it or add it to our Christmas or birthday list and wait to get it! Even adults waited for these times for presents and this made it so much easier to buy presents as you could almost guarantee they would not already have it!
Now days though people have unfortunately got used to just buying the latest gadgets, fashion trends and must-have items, so that leaves us asking - what do you buy them for Christmas?
Thankfully this is where the "experience gift" market has grown to fill a gap, not only for Xmas but any gift or present that is needed and it provides us with unique gift ideas for everyone. Whether it is a customised thank you bottle of champagne or a romantic hot air balloon ride for an anniversary there are thousands of gift ideas out there that you will never be stuck for presents again!
There really are thousands of christmas present ideas, for all kinds of occasions and celebrations, from birthdays and Christmas to graduation congratulations and mothers/fathers day. Although as much as we may like to think it was easier in the old days, modern technology has also played its own part in making finding the more unusual and unique gifts much easier to find.
This year's over all top gift ideas have been:
- Gifts for men - driving experiences, especially Ferrari driving days
- Gifts for women - luxury paper spa days
- Gifts for boys - tanks & paint-balling day
- Gifts for girls - superstar singing experience
So don't waste your hard earned money on socks and novelty knitted jumpers that they just won't wear, give them a gift that will be really appreciated and you never know it could inspire them to take it up as their new hobby for the new year!
