It is not early to think about Christmas gifts. Santa Claus is preparing presents for all children. You should also plan some for those you cherish the best.
I know many of you are planning for Christmas from now on. Presents are an unmissable part of completing this meaningful time. But, you do not know what to prepare, don’t you?
Keep in mind one thing:
The best Christmas gift is not the most expensive one. Instead, the gift indicates how you care for the receiver and wish him or her a Merry Christmas!
Here I suggest you eight best non-boring Christmas ideas, some of which are inspired by my favorite gifting store - Eyeskady.
But I confirm this post has no bias; I share the best for you!
Does your family wear special costumes at Christmas such as T-shirts, pyjamas, reindeer hats, or the like?
That every family member puts on similar clothes shows off the belongingness, unity, and harmony in such a fuzzy union time like Christmas.
To my family, the T-shirt is a never-boring choice.
Every year, we wear different colors, funny quotes, and designs. The most meaningful part is to gather under the pine tree on the uniform T-shirt and take a family photo!
I have just found one lovely model at Eyeskady. How do you think?

T-shirts are great to wear indoors. For outdoor events, take uniform hoodies instead.
Family hoodies! (Source: https://thai.bestpriceupdate.com/cf/1050/cdn/HLB1rQFiXJjvK1RjSspiq6AEqXXaF/Christmas-Hoodies-Family-Matching-Sweatshirt-Xmas-Print-Family-Look-Family-Matching-Clothes-Father-Mother-Son-Christmas.jpg)
Not only are hoodies warm, but they are unisex. Both men and women can wear it. More excitingly, hoodies are easy to mix with other clothes.
Similar to the T-shirts, you can print some family quotes onto the hoodies and shout out to the world that you are a happy family.
Say, “The joys and warmth of Xmas bring us together, from the heart to heart and from home to home.”
Gifts for Kids (Source: https://i.pinimg.com/564x/6b/8f/b4/6b8fb41ad1ae8d96d4ef60c054766bee.jpg)
Back then, my son was bouncing off the walls when I gave him a handmade Gryffindor scarf for Christmas.
I bet almost every child wants a Harry Potter stuff like this, so you should think about weaving one for your kids. Ask which House of Hogwarts School they like and whether they fancy a scarf like Harry or Draco.
It is going to take you a month or more to complete the scarf so that you can prepare from now on.
How lovely! A mug is a great gift for Christmas.
On the one hand, you can decorate the mugs with personalized content. A photo of couples or a love expression, for example.
On the other hand, it is practical to use mugs daily.
Mugs are often made of ceramic, which are more durable than glass. You can expect those lovely mugs to last for various Christmas seasons. Even better, you serve your family with hot chocolate. The ceramic mugs retain heat excellently so that the drink remains warm for a long chat.
DIY Christmas Cards
The DIY card is never out-of-date! (Source: https://i.pinimg.com/564x/f1/39/31/f13931eac8028a2c6de96e3f19150826.jpg)
In the context of instant messengers, tweets, texts, or emails like today, a DIY handwritten card is still an unmissable practice at Christmas. It makes a special sense of caring and sharing.
I know many people who are not comfortable when saying lovey-dovey things to their parents face to face. It does not mean they do not love their Mom and Day, but it is just hard to be direct sometimes. Then, put those words down onto the card, wishing them the best and a merry Christmas.
Books are intelligent gifts for Xmas (Source: https://i.pinimg.com/564x/b5/eb/77/b5eb77174df64b1ba578058ef4d48caf.jpg)
You can give books at any occasion. They are an intelligent gift.
Like a card, a book might send your love and thoughts to the receiver indirectly.
Or, you want to share an interesting book you have read for others to make them happy like how you feel from the book.
I usually give my kids a book at Christmas so that they can learn new things. It is a family tradition that my Dad used to give me “Letters From Father Christmas” by J.R.R. Tolkien.
If you do not know what book to give your kids, then I recommend trying The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, or The Night Before Christmas.

For foodies, no gifts are more attractive than food gifts!
Since we have much spare time at Christmas, you can roll into the kitchen and make some healthy and yummy food to bring to your friends’ house.
I can give you some suggestions such as Valley Wines, Salted Chocolates, Pepperoni Rolls, Marshmallow Cookies, Caramel Popcorn, and many more. There is a bunch of recipes on the Internet to try.
A Reunion Dinner
Yes, Christmas dinner has a lot of calories. But who cares? (Source: https://i0.wp.com/metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/8360127281.jpg)
Christmas is the reunion time. So, gather around the table and make a toast for a merry Xmas!
The best Christmas gift is a delicious feast with all family members. How meaningful it is to prepare all the stuff from appetizers, sides, drinks, and desserts and have a memorable time together.
No matter which you present at Christmas, whether it is a simple handmade card or a dinner of full delicious dishes. As long as you prepare them with carings and love, the receiver can feel your heart. And you guys will share a wonderful Christmas!
