Get into the spirit of gift-giv­ing this sea­son

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

With Christ­mas just around the cor­ner, many peo­ple are get­ting out to shop now be­fore the Christ­mas rush be­gins.

Choos­ing the right gifts for your fam­ily and friends can of­ten be an ar­du­ous task dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son, when time and imag­i­na­tion are in short sup­ply.

Here’s a few gift ideas to get you in­spired for the fes­tive sea­son ahead:

Gar­den­ers:

When it comes to the gar­dener in your life, there are plenty of op­tions to work with. For the gar­den­ing en­thu­si­ast, a new set of gar­den­ing tools or a gar­den cen­tre voucher might just be the an­swer, or why not give them a plant gift with a dif­fer­ence - try a bon­sai tree, or a cit­rus plant such as a lemon, man­darin or or­ange for your pa­tio or gar­den.

Sports fans:

No mat­ter what sport or out­door pur­suit your sports en­thu­si­ast en­joys, there’s plenty of op­tions here for all hob­bies and bud­gets.

From sport­ing bi­ogra­phies, to sports ac­ces­sories, camp­ing equip­ment, sport­ing ap­parel, sports equip­ment, sports star branded items, ball sets, vouch­ers, and nov­elty sports items, the op­tions are lim­it­less.

Mu­sic lovers

There’s plenty of scope for the imag­i­na­tion for mu­sic lovers. Look out for spe­cial edi­tion box sets, or for the retro mu­sic en­thu­si­ast, why not find a turn ta­ble and col­lec­tion of records for them to enjoy the old fash­ioned way.

Fash­ion fol­low­ers

For the fash­ion con­scious, there’s a gift for ev­ery per­son and ev­ery bud­get.

For both males and fe­males, hats, sun­glasses, fash­ion scarves and fragrances are the per­fect choice for Christ­mas gifts and stock­ing fillers.

For the fe­males, a make up set or bath­room or­gan­iser is al­ways a good choice, and for the men, look out for a shav­ing or groom­ing set or trav­el­sized wash kit.

Gad­get lovers

For those that enjoy the lat­est and great­est gad­gets, think about some in­ter­est­ing and quirky presents that you know they will enjoy.

Think fun and us­able: a por­ta­ble fuse­ball ta­ble, an ice cream maker, pop­corn maker, elec­tric back mas­sager, espresso cof­fee maker, foot spa, nov­elty kitchen­ware or a cheese making kit.

Pet lovers

There’s plenty of gifts out there for fur and feather too. Check out the range of nov­elty cat scratch­ing posts, dog toys, nov­elty col­lars, pet beds, food bowls, blan­kets and leads.
