Christmas Presents

Christmas is the time to show your loved ones how much they mean to you. Families and close friends gather together to celebrate everything that the 25th of December means to us. For many people, it's not about religion; it's time you can set aside to dedicate to your loved ones. 

Gift-giving is one of the essential elements of Christmas, but it's the thought that matters. So if you're worried about your budget, there's no need. 

In this post, we're going to reveal some fantastic gifts for Christmas 2021 that won't break the bank.

'Tis the season to be - well - drunk! Christmas is that time of year when diets, detoxes, and every other restriction goes out the window. We spend a whole week eating and drinking what we want - then promise ourselves that the next year will be all about health. 

You can guarantee that your recipient will appreciate a bottle of their favourite tipple, and there are plenty of options available. Let's take a look at some of the best alcohol gifts. 


Perfect for your parents, in-laws or anyone who enjoys the spirit, Whiskey is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks, and there are so many brands to choose between - you'll have no problem finding one to suit your budget. 

Higher-end bottles include Scotch and rare Japanese whiskies. If you're on a budget, nothing beats an old favourite such as Jack Daniels. 


Gin is no longer seen as a drink for people in their 50s, and in recent years it's made a big comeback. Not only is it a great mixer, but you can also get an assortment of flavours.

There are also selections of mini gin bottles, which make a fantastic gift. From pink gin to fruity additions and subscriptions, you can give someone a great gift without breaking the bank. 


We couldn't leave Prosecco out! It's one of those sparkling wines that are cheaper than Champagne but has a high-end appeal. 


You can't go wrong with chocolate, especially at Christmas. Most people leave their diets behind and dedicate the week to enjoying their favourite treats, so why not add a personal touch to your gifts? 

Manufacturers such as Toblerone and Cadbury offer personalised bars of chocolate and selection boxes. It might not sound like much, but something as simple as a name on a bar of Dairy Milk shows people that you care and made an effort to think of them. 

You can also buy Beech's chocolate gift boxes for older relatives or choose a themed chocolate set that matches your recipient's interests. Popular chocolate gifts include golf, football and make-up.

Sweets are one of the most popular Christmas gifts because they're cost-effective but always appreciated. Perhaps the best thing about sweet gifts is you can buy wholesale and make individual bags. 

Traditional sweets are especially popular with older people because they offer nostalgic value. You can also put together packets of jelly sweets or give people a selection of treats from the USA. 

Christmas Hamper 

So, we've covered the most popular Christmas gifts that won't break the bank, but if you want to do something extra special, you can mix and match different items to create a hamper. 

All you need to do is choose a selection of alcohol, chocolate and sweets for your recipients and put them in a nice hamper. 

If you're not keen on hampers, you can use boxes or create an advent calendar for younger people. 

Digital advent calendars are easy to make if you have software such as Canva, and you can reveal a chocolate treat each day for young children. They'll love enjoying the surprise of a digital advent calendar, and it's a great option if crafts aren't your thing. 

Novelty Gifts 

Novelty gifts are a great choice if you're buying for friends and don't want to go the sentimental route. Popular themes include adult joke gifts and cool gadgets for younger people. 

Let's take a look at some of the more popular options: 

Beer Pong Wars: People of drinking age will love beer pong wars because it combines fun with alcohol. Nothing more to say about this one! 

Dads Survival Toolkit: New dads will be so appreciative of this godsend. It features essential items babies might need, including wet wipes, nappies, a rattle and a survival manual. 

Festival Survival Kit: If you're buying for people in their late teens to early twenties, a festival survival kit will give them everything they need to enjoy the experience. 

Personalised Gifts 

If you want to show someone you care, then a personalised gift is a good option. Popular options include personalised photo frames or photo transfers. 

Things such as duvet covers, pillows, cushions and hoodies are excellent if someone has a pet or new baby. You could also use an image of their favourite print, such as a city backdrop of a tropical beach. 

Pet Gifts 

Let's not forget our beloved furry friends at Christmas! While you and your loved ones are opening presents, your dogs and cats should be part of the fun. There are some wonderful gifts for pets, so let's take a look at them. 

Cat Selection Box: From Dreamies to luxury Christmas pates, your feline friend will love a selection box.

The Wrap Up 

Hopefully, our selection of Christmas gifts gives you some ideas about what to buy your loved ones this year. Remember, you don't have to spend a fortune on presents because it's the thought that counts.
