It’s time to start dusting off the tree, planning the family feast and making your lists and checking it twice for the holiday seasons gifts.

This year has been tough for many but there are still many ways to make someone feel extra loved with special and personalised gifts just for them. Here are four gifts that are always appreciated: 

Self-care kits 

With the waves of stress and more that 2020 has brought, there’s no better time to gift someone a self-care kit than now. These can range from hand and nail creams to bath bombs and scented candles. These gifts let a person know that they deserve to treat and take care of themselves even during a global pandemic. 

A delicious, special, tasty treat 

Everyone’s favourite, delicious chocolate treats. A local favourite, Cadbury, recently launched their new Cadbury Festive range, just in time for Christmas – making it the perfect tasty and delicious gift - while still unique and special. You can choose your favourite flavour from this range that includes four decadent Cadbury limited edition festive inspired flavours: 

Cadbury Dream Cinnamon Crunch 150g
Cadbury Dairy Milk Butterscotch & Crushed Almonds 150g
Cadbury Dairy Milk Festive Gingerbread 150g
Cadbury Dream Whispers Snowballs 200g

To up the ante, Cadbury will also be releasing fun festive recipes showcasing their new chocolates – from Butterscotch Reindeer Truffles and Festive Gingerbread Mince Pies to Dream Snowball Men. As much as we know you’d like to keep these all to yourself, ‘tis the season for giving back, so make a batch to share with friends and family. These could be a decadent and special gifting idea or even an opportunity to make them together as a family for a shared memorable experience. All you need to do is get your hands on the new Cadbury Festive range and keep an eye on their social media platforms for recipe details.  

This is a gift that truly keeps on giving!


Another great gift idea is art. You could create a personal artwork; get crafty whichever way you choose and create something bespoke and meaningful to you both. Or, if you don’t have an artistic hand, reach out to local artists for a commission, or browse the framed art found in home décor stores for a pretty and lasting gift they can hang up on their wall.  

A unique and personal experience 

Perhaps gifts aren’t your strong suit or love language, and quality time might be the best gift you can give them. Planning an outing or experience that your loved one enjoys - be it a day at the beach or a garden picnic or movie night in with all their favourite snacks – is a gift that never fails. This perfect budget-friendly gift is bound to leave fond memories that last a lifetime.
