No one really has everything. Even the wealthiest of your friends will appreciate a token of your love and affection, however small. The most important thing to remember is that you’re buying presents for the recipient and not for yourself.

Show your personality with your present

If you want your gift to stand out, you don’t necessarily have to spend more dollars than anyone else. You could always go online and choose a gift from Glitter Gift Baskets and have a look at their range, or you can blow your whole Christmas budget on an extraordinary present and then spend the rest of the year wondering if you did the right thing.

Unusual presents

Often buying Christmas gifts entails a fair amount of research. The Huffington Post suggests that a unique and extraordinary present is the new Michael Kors watch. This item is actually called the ‘Watch Hunger Stop’ watch, as the manufacturers will donate $25 of the purchase price to the United Nations Food Programme. If you’re looking for the innovative present for the person who has everything, then $25 for someone who has little is a great way of celebrating Christmas. The recipient of your gift should applaud your originality and generosity.

Glamorous presents for women

If you want to give to charity and treat your glamorous friends at the same time, then consider the MAC-Viva Glam lipstick. This item is achingly fashionable. Miley Cyrus is headlining the Viva Glam event in January 2015, and you’ll also be ensuring that you’re contributing to MAC Canada’s AIDS fund. Charity Christmas giving needn’t be worthy or dull, and there are a whole plethora of these type of gifts around this year. Remember that it’s not the size of your gift that matters, it’s whether you’ve given a present because you really like someone.

Ballooning is a great idea

If you’re looking for an unusual or distinctive present, don’t opt for designer labels. If you can afford it, why not invest in a balloon trip? Just ensure that the recipient doesn’t suffer from Vertigo. This is a present that can be enjoyed at any time, and it is unique. Remember, the person who has everything probably has their own private jet, but a balloon trip will allow them to take life at a gentler pace and really enjoy the scenery. The travel specialist website Where Canada has some wonderful ideas for a perfect balloon trip.

Art doesn’t always have to cost a fortune

If you’re buying a present for someone who loves art, you don’t have to buy a Giotto or a Modigliano to curry favour. First Nation artwork is definitely unique and your present will be well received as a result of its originality. Alternatively, you could always have a look at some city bric a brac shops and look for an unusual curio. Individuality is what counts with present giving, and not the amount that you spend on a gift.
