Now, If you are thinking what can you during Christmas, don’t worry. In this post, I am gonna tell you what I will do and what I will buy during this Christmas. Here I have made a list for gifting purposes or buying for yourself.
Did you Know?
More than two billion people celebrate Christmas which makes it about 32 percent people of the entire population. And with Christmas, comes the exchange of gifts.
I think night and day what to give to our loved ones. As there is a wide range of gifts available in the market, we often get lost.
One way to get lost and buy gifts that don’t meet the expectation is to ask the people you would like to give a gift what they want.
If you have a sister like I have who says, “Give me this dress or that mobile, dear brother!” then you are lucky. On the other hand, having a brother like me who doesn’t clearly state or say something vague like ‘Whatever’, that’s when it gets tricky.
So, to help you out a bit, here is the list of gifts ideas for Christmas 2018.

We concluded that we will gift ourselves a tour. Now, for that tour, there are a wide variety of gifts we will love to receive.
There was a day when backpacks were considered boring.
Not anymore. Brands such as American Tourister, Wildcraft, Skybags etc. have brought nothing less than a revolution in this field. Nowadays, backpacks have excellent designs, funky prints, and an amazing quality. Brands use load reduction technologies so we can carry even the heavy loads with ease. These are best suited for someone who wants to travel with a lighter load.

Thread or Yarn:
Threads and yarns are very important things to craft lovers. A wide range of color, texture, and sizes are available for threads. Just check beforehand what work type is that thread is supposed to be used. Threads are sometimes interchangeably termed as yarn or wool.
You can also gift needles to a craft lover this Christmas. They come in almost every size and shape. Every craft work needs a different needle and thus it is very hard to determine what type would be ideal without knowing the task. In case you are not sure, buy a whole set.
Working on the exact same design every time is pretty boring. That is why craft lovers always need new designs and patterns. This is where a design book can come in handy. Gift one to your craft lover family or friend and see them in delight.
A yarn bowl does not the yarns fall into the floor. Buy a wooden one if possible for your family and/or friend, as they look really elegant.

Every family or friend circle has a friend who is a painter. Give that person a gift to hone their talents even more.
Painting equipment such as paint, palettes, brushes, and easels are all the necessary equipment for any artist. Gift them any of these things, or take a step further, and gift them the whole set. There will not be a better gift they would think of.
Of course, this one is primarily for children. However, coloring books for adults are also available on the market now. They are generally used for relieving stress and relaxation purpose.
What Do I Want For Christmas? Gift Ideas For The Writer:
The writers usually have their own world. You can give them gifts to fit into that world.
Books On Writing:
As a writer, I know how much help a sound tip and/or inspiration do. You can give them books that will help with their writing and will motivate them on writing and in life. Some of the examples are On Writing by Stephen King, Bird by Bird by Ann Lamott, The War of Art by Stephen Pressfield, and On Writing Well by William Zinsser.
Pen And Paperweight:
A pen is a great gift for any writer. They can use it to what they do the best, write. Also, if they have a published book, they can use the pen to sign their books on book tours and events.
Paperweights are also useful to writers for keeping all those manuscripts and papers on the place on their writing table.
A notebook with a personal touch is great for writers to take down notes whenever an idea hits. Also, they can plan their work schedule with the notebook. You can even go up a notch and gift them an aqua notes idea. This notebook has waterproof pads. So you can write even when you are in the bathroom.
What Do I Want For Christmas? Gift Ideas For The Book Lover:
This is where I get greedy while writing this post. I just love books. In fact, I am so obsessed with them that I don’t even borrow anyone my books lest any harm is caused to them. Of course, you can gift a book lover a book (or a book series), but there are so many, so I would leave that out. Kindle is another good option, but as we have talked about it before, let’s see some other unconventional gift ideas for book lovers.
Bookmarks are a useful item for book lovers. I personally have a lot of them. These days, bookmarks are getting funkier, have great designs, and are sure so much fun.
Bookends these days have so many options to choose from. You can not go wrong with these.
Hollow Book Safe:
Hollow book safes are really awesome. They have a stylish outer cover and you can store a lot of stuff inside them. What more does a book lover ask for?
A book merchandise is any book lovers top priority concerning gifts. Be it a Harry Potter scarf, or a The Lord of The Rings Ring, or a Game of Thrones merchandise, these are pieces worth dying for.
A Personal embosser lets you emboss your name on every book you own. In that way, you can brand them as your own property. How awesome is that? Give it to a book lover and they will always be thankful.
What Do I Want For Christmas? Gift Ideas For The Board Game Enthusiast:
I used to love board games. Many of my friends still do. If you have a friend who is a board game lover, you can gift him a board game. Like any other games, the board game is also divided into various categories. However, to know what game your friend already has is sometimes difficult. So, it is better to gift them accessories that are used in board games. You can not make a mistake here.
Board games have to be stored somewhere when not in use. You can gift them a cloth bag to store the dice, cards, and other materials of board games in one place. From solid colored to multi colored, your options here are endless.
Dice Rolling Tray:
Dice rolling trays are a great gift option when dice games are involved. The dice do not roll over to any place with its help. In addition, these trays are mostly lined with felt. As a result, the dice do not make much noise either.
Sounds a little weird, right? Bear with me. You might find this gift idea funny, but a person who loves board games would not. There are many games that feature a score card. Naturally, over the time they are used. So, a blank white index card will serve a board game in many ways.
Board Game Organizer:
Board game organizers face the weariness due to time and usage in general. If you gift a board game organizer to them, it will be really useful to them.
All of the aforementioned gifts might seem too small and unimportant to you. However, if you feel that way, you can buy all of them and gift them as a set. The person receiving it will be way too happy.

Our mothers take all the care of us round the year, every single day. It is our responsibility to gift them something very special this Christmas.

On this Christmas, for a day, do not let her cook, or wash, or do the dusting, alright, you got the point. You do all of that. And send her on a day out with her friends and let her enjoy.
Gift Her A Spa Trip:
Book a spa trip for her. Let her get the best massage available, along with other health treatments. Pamper her with the spa experience.
Send Her On A Date:
With your dad, of course. I’m kidding. Oftentimes, mothers bury their own emotions and needs in order to care for us. Send her and your father on a romantic date on a place they both love. They will really cherish this gift throughout their lives.
What Do I Want For Christmas? Gift Ideas For Father:
Fathers are often neglected as we become too busy selecting gifts for our mother. Do not make the same mistake.
