Christmas is such a special time of year- of course there are all the wonderful gifts, the joy of giving, and all the wonderful decorations that come out during the Christmas period. However for me, the biggest joys are spending more time with close friends and family, and also treating loved ones to special gifts that light up their faces. If you’re feeling a bit stuck and not sure where to start for Christmas gifts this year, here are three special Christmas gifts you’ll enjoy giving:
1. A Baby Stroller
Do you know someone who’s just about to have a baby? Maybe a close friend or someone in your family? Having a baby is a life changing event, that’s so joyful and exciting, but the truth is having a baby can be very expensive. Between all the things the baby needs, such as a crib, clothes, toys and even the medical bills associated with the birth, things can get expensive fast. That’s why I think gifting the new parents something kind of expensive, that you know they’re going to use, is a great way to show your support. Check out andystork.com for a great range of strollers online. As strollers tend to be a little on the pricey side, it can be worth while asking a few friends or family members of the couple to chip in – it’s much nicer to get them a substantial gift, rather than smaller gifts you’re not sure they’ll even use.
2. Health Related Gifts
Giving gifts that encourage health are such a thoughtful way to show that you care about someone, and also to encourage them to live their best life. One year I got my boyfriend at the time a boxing membership so that he could pursue his love of the sport. Getting a gym membership for someone might be a nice thought, but I think it’s even better if it’s a health related hobby, like yoga or soccer. You can even get them related accessories, such as a yoga, new boxing gloves etc the options are limitless. If you know one of your loved ones suffers from achey legs and painful veins, then it might be worth treating them to a pair of high quality support stockings. Legion Compression Socks can make a big difference in terms of not only pain level in the legs, but also the overall appearance, making it a wonderful gift.
3. Don’t Forget Your Pets
If you have pets, then don’t forget to celebrate with them this Christmas. I personally love getting my dogs a special gift that they can ‘open’ with us on Christmas day. Obviously it doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but showing your pets that you love them and treating them is a special way to celebrate.

In my home, my dogs are basically like my children so it’s just logical that I would include them in our Christmas celebrations.
Christmas is such a fun time of year, but with these thoughtful gift suggestions I’m sure you’ll enjoy it even more.
