With Christmas quickly approaching, you’re probably trying to figure out what to get your friends and family members who are a big part of your life. Choosing the right Christmas gifts can seem stressful, but it doesn’t have to be with these tips on choosing the best gifts for every type of friend. Whether your friend is into sports or spends all their time reading, there’s something on this list that they’ll love and will let them know how much you care about them.
For the Sports Fan
Score big with tickets to their favorite team’s game. Suppose your friend is a fan of a minor league baseball team. In that case, you can score some great deals on tickets by purchasing them online and choosing a seat in an otherwise empty section of seats. Tickets typically start at $6-$20 depending on where they are; however, it will depend on if they have a winning season or not. Make sure to choose tickets as soon as they go on sale to avoid missing out.
For the Gamer
If your friend is a video game nerd, don’t go with an expensive console—seriously, they already have one. Instead, try something unique like a limited-edition graphic novel or T-shirt from their favorite franchise. Or how about a vintage strategy guide from back in the day? These are usually inexpensive but provide a great collectible they can enjoy over and over again. You can also buy them action figures from vintage stores or a new game for their console that they’ve been eyeing but haven’t yet bought. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s unique and valuable to your gamer friend’s interests.
For the Fashionista
Everyone wants to look good and feel great. If you’re shopping for a fashionista, consider giving them a new pair of trendy shoes or an accessory set that will suit any occasion. They’ll easily incorporate these into their wardrobe with their sense of style. Your gift can also help them stay fashionable by making sure they always have new and unique items to add to their closet. Vintage fashion is in again these days, so you won’t go wrong with these.
For added effect, purchase something that compliments what they already own. A belt to match a purse is a fantastic example of how combining two gifts can create one fabulous present.
You can also consider giving them a jewelry box or some good-quality wooden hangers that will help keep their wardrobe nice and neat. You’ll be helping them stay organized without even having to ask. If they’re tough to shop for, you can always give them a gift card. While that might not seem like much, any fashionista will appreciate your thoughtfulness. They’ll be able to find exactly what they want and never have to worry about purchasing an outfit twice.
For the Bookworm
Book lovers are always looking for new books to read. Give them what they’re looking for with a book or an e-book gift card. With an e-book card, your friend can choose from thousands of titles, from the classics to more contemporary writing. If your bookworm friend prefers paperback copies, buy them a gift card to their favorite bookstore, so they can pick out their books to enjoy over winter break.
For the Artist
You might have an artist in your life. They spend all their time scribbling or painting or drawing or photographing. They frequently have to be dragged out of their studio to socialize. If you have an artist friend, consider getting them a gift that will allow them to pursue their craft full-time; you’ll be giving them exactly what they want.
There are a lot of craft tools you can give them like paints, pencils, canvases. You can also give them kits they can do themselves, like making bracelets, putting together puzzles, or card making kits to come up with their cards, which can be fun for any artist.
For the Musician
You might not get on board with your buddy’s Slipknot obsession, but give them credit where it’s due—maybe they have a knack for creating anthems. Help them write those songs down and see if you can turn them into something by purchasing an audio recording device or software to help make their vision a reality. While some people might be born with musical talent, everyone needs good practice tools!
