Time poor? Stumped for best Christmas gift ideas? Just want to get your shopping out of the way quickly so you can go back to reading the latest celebrity gossip? Me too! That’s why I chose to get the whole family Christmas gift baskets this year.
Sure, some people might call me lazy. Some people might call me a little impersonal. But damn! It’s the thought that counts, right? Who doesn’t want to receive a surprise gift basket direct to their door (or even at work) with a sweet little note attached? I know that I have loved getting them the few times in my life I’ve been lucky enough to get them!
Let’s take a look at what the go is for various family members when it comes to the best gift baskets. You can’t very well give everyone the same thing because that is a little impersonal – well as far as I see it anyway. So here is what everyone is going to appreciate the most.
For mum – the pamper pack
The Urban Rituelle “Inspire” Gift is a great choice for mum to take time out for herself. We all know that she deserves it! What with running around after the whole family and keeping the house shipshape, she deserves a “me” break – which is what this gift is inspired by. With a gorgeous little diffuser, some lovely smelling (and feeling) hand cream, and a candle to put her in the mood, you can even add a little mini Moet or a plush robe to the pack to make it truly special.
For dad – the scotch whisky pack
If your dad is anything like mine, then he loves a tipple at the end of the day to relax – which is why a Chivas Regal gift hamper is the way to go for him. He’ll get to enjoy his favourite glass neat, on the rocks, or even with some Coke, and then have it paired with some goodies like cashews, olives, relish and crackers, and maybe a Ferrero Rocher or two. He might even share some with you if you are lucky enough!
For bro – crack a coldie
While dad’s a scotch drinker, my brother’s tastes (like him personally) are not quite as mature as yet – he still loves drinking his beer. That’s why a beer sampler pack is a great gift. A crack a coldie hamper filled with Coopers, Becks, Heineken, Pure Blonde, and a Crownie gives him a vast range to choose from too. Paired with some beer nuts, pretzels, and crackers it’s sure to give him at least an indulgent afternoon over the Christmas period.
For sis – champagne tastes
Is it something about sisters that we all have one who loves a glass of champers or two on special occasions? If you have one of these sisters, then a champagne gift hamper makes perfect sense for her Christmas hamper gift. Try Australia’s favourite Moet & Chandon bottle alongside an ice bucket (if she doesn’t guzzle the whole thing in an hour that is) and which some chocolates like Ferrero Rocher to go along with it.
Of course, if your family is more than just mum, dad, and your sister and brother, there are plenty of other gift baskets to choose from. There really is something for everyone when you check out the full range available online. Make sure to get your orders in on time so they’ll be delivered in time for Christmas and remember to include that sweet note I was talking about in the beginning to make sure they know they are special to you!
