Christmas is the time to tell your loved ones that they are special. We usually say this with a gift that is thoughtful and full of love. But, it is not always easy to get the perfect gift for a loved one and that is why we have compiled a list for you. There are lots of ways to come up with a gift that is simple, memorable and doesn’t add to the post- Christmas clutter.

Traditional Gifts: Most people, especially kids love the experience of getting up on Christmas morning and pick up their wrapped gift kept under the tree. Depending on the what the recipient loves, there are lots of traditional gifts that one can opt for like toys and books for the kids, a set of mason jars or wine glasses, a planner for the new year, a pen, a box of assorted chocolates or cookies, coffee mug, scented candles, bottle of wine, scarf, perfume, body scrub, bath and body hamper among many others. Also, nothing says thoughtful more than a personalised gift with the initials, name or picture of your loved one.

Quirky Gifts: For friends and family who are fun and love the unusual, there are so many quirky options to choose from like quirky oven mitts, apron with a quote, beer pong, mugs, posters with fun quotes, bath bombs, fun accessories and much more.

Wine and Dine: Who doesn’t love a great gastronomic experience or some wine and dine with their loved ones? There is so much that you can do for a food lover from an exotic food hamper, to fine chocolates, a gift voucher for a brewery tour, a hamper with assorted tea or coffee, a bottle of wine, or even a wine and dine experience in a great restaurant. Canberra has so much to offer for someone who loves food and drinks.

Experience: Few cities offer experiences as diverse as Canberra. Imagine the amount of joy that a recipient will get by floating over the capital in a hot air balloon at dawn, or a quiet night at the cinema, an encounter with some furry creatures in the zoo or even a month’s supply of free morning coffees. Canberra offers a wide range of experiences from hot air balloon ride to Jet flight simulator experience, spa vouchers, local sporting team memberships, cultural memberships, theatre and concert tickets, full day rafting tour, hiking tour among many others. The best part is that you don’t even have to step out in the Christmas rush since most of these are online.
