Christmas is just around the corner. If you have yet to go shopping for presents, the fear is more than likely beginning to set in. Pause the panic button, because these last-minute buys are totally hassle-free and will score you serious brownie points with your better half, mammy or sister.
There’s nothing more thrilling than being whisked away on an impromptu getaway. Surprise her with an overnight stay to somewhere special during the weeks after Christmas. Following the festive buzz, it will be a welcome hotel break to look forward to in the New Year.
Many hotels have fantastic hotel deals including late check-out, breakfast or an evening meal. Plus, this is a super easy and time-saving alternative to braving the high street in search of a gift. You can do it all online from the comfort of your sofa!
Maybe your sister has travelled home for Christmas or is busy planning her 2017 wedding? A relaxing spa treatment followed by a delightful Afternoon Tea will be the perfect opportunity for her to catch up on all the gossip by spending some quality time with your mum. The pair will no doubt be seriously impressed by your thoughtful gesture.
If you’re really stumped for innovative ideas, a fragrance gift box or limited edition make up set is always a failsafe item. The assistants at the beauty counter of your local department store will be able to direct you towards this year’s top-selling products from lip kits to contour palettes and everything in-between. Alternatively a pamering spa break is always a firm favourite.
Just don’t forget to request a gift receipt – better to be safe than sorry!
It’s always nice to receive something you wouldn’t necessarily splash the cash on yourself – and a pair of high quality pyjamas is one of those items! Spoil her with a set of soft and luxurious garments, so she can relax in style after cooking the Christmas feast. Prepare a roaring fire, box of delicious chocolates and an indulgent glass of wine for the ultimate evening of Netflix and chill.
