At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, we will awake to climb down the chimney. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a hanging stocking, long suppressed, finds Christmas.
We might take a little liberty with famous speeches, but it’s time Santa Claus (read you) started working on ‘the list’ of gifts that takes us to the next level. This year, however, don’t just give a gift. Say how much you love them with a touch of you. Here are 10 personalised gifts that the favourite people in your life would go nuts to receive. Get on the sleigh already! And while you’re at it, here are 10 Amazing Outfits For Christmas!
One For The Jewellery Buff
“I have enough jewellery,” said no woman ever! Whether it’s your mother, sister, BFF or girlfriend, a jewellery, and personalised while at it, makes for a great gift. They’ll wear it like a lucky charm and always remember you for it.
One For The Bag Lover
There’s nothing a new bag can’t fix! Know someone who has a healthy obsession with bags? Here’s a perfect gift for her. This oversized tote bag with attached tassels is as chic as it’s colourful. This is what joy must look like.
One Who Likes The Effort
Now, who doesn’t love customised t-shirts! Imagine their expressions when they unwrap it to find their favourite quote written on it. That’s the kind of memory you want for life. Plus, it’ll show them how much you pay attention to the little things.
One For The Make-up Junkie
We all have that one friend who wakes up for make-up. Here’s a cute cosmetic kit where she can put all her favourites of the day. Her very own personal vanity, and how pretty! Here are 15 AMAZING Makeup Essentials For Every Girl (All Under Rs 150!) to add to her new bag if you feel like showing her some extra love.
One For The Handy Girl
Whether it’s a lip balm, or earphones, your credit cards, or a hand sanitizer, let all your essentials find space so you never lose a thing. This would be just perfect for the clumsy one in your group (yup, we all have one of them too. If not… ahem... it’s you!)
One For The Fine-apple
A night suit might sound like a different (read weird) gift to give someone, but trust us, when it’s personalised and has cute pineapples all over it, they’re going to love it! Don’t just wish ‘sweet dreams!’
One With The Metallic Mania
Laptops are not just restricted to a 9 to 5 life anymore. We use them all the time whether for work or for binge-watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S like every other night. Here’s a metallic laptop sleeve to brighten her desk (and her days!)
One For The Chef
There are two types of chefs in the world - the Michelin chef and the Maggi chef! How about you gift this oh-so-personal apron to your chef friend this Christmas? They make you food, you make their day!
One For The Travel Freak
Lucky are those who have a travel buddy to count on for the planned (as well as prompt) vacay plans! Get yourselves these matching passport covers and make travelling all the more fun and memorable.
One Who’s All About The Charms
Let your bestie know how well you know her by making her a charm bracelet with all her favourite charms. That’s the best friendship band she can have, and a gift that you'll be appreciated for, for a really long time.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…
