At the begin­ning of the 20th cen­tu­ry, the main win­ter hol­i­day for our coun­try was Christ­mas. After the rev­o­lu­tion, the New Year came to its place, but the trends are chang­ing, and now Christ­mas is regain­ing its posi­tions lost in the Sovi­et era. Peo­ple are again prepar­ing to cel­e­brate the birth of Christ, set­ting the table and, of course, won­der­ing what to give to loved ones.

For some, pre-hol­i­day shop­ping, wrap­ping and dec­o­rat­ing gifts is a pleas­ant and joy­ful fuss, but for some­one it is almost a heavy duty: so many rel­a­tives and friends need to be pre­sent­ed, and there is not enough imag­i­na­tion even to choose one small present. To save you from painful thoughts, We has com­piled a list of the most desir­able and pleas­ant gift ideas for Christ­mas in 2023.

Top 25 Christmas Gift Ideas

Any of these options will be a won­der­ful Christ­mas sur­prise for your friends or rel­a­tives. You just have to buy the gift you like and charge it with your love and good mood.

To kid

1. Knitted mittens

Christ­mas is the height of win­ter, the time for active walks, wal­low­ing in the snow and ice skat­ing. Warm mit­tens with a fes­tive pat­tern are the most prac­ti­cal and most win­ter present that you can imag­ine. You can buy a ready-made prod­uct in the store or, if you know how to knit, make win­ter mit­tens your­self — such a gift will be even more valu­able.

2. Book with fairy tales

A Christ­mas fairy tale will bring the spir­it of mys­tery and mag­ic to a frosty win­ter evening, fill it with warmth and com­fort. And besides, such a present will be use­ful for expand­ing the hori­zons of the child.

3. Puzzles

Putting togeth­er a puz­zle is not only an insane­ly excit­ing pas­time, but also a use­ful devel­op­men­tal exer­cise for the brain. The child devel­ops the abil­i­ty to con­cen­trate and ana­lyze, improves mem­o­ry, har­mo­nizes the work of both hemi­spheres of the brain. Just what kids need.

4. Soft Christmas toy

If the child is very small, then a large soft toy in the form of an ani­mal or a fun­ny fairy-tale char­ac­ter will be the per­fect Christ­mas sur­prise. A sim­ple but win-win option.

5. Coloring

All chil­dren love cre­ativ­i­ty, so a col­or­ing book as a gift would be more than appro­pri­ate. You can also donate a set of felt-tip pens, col­ored pen­cils or crayons along with the col­or­ing book.


6. Set for soap makers

You can buy a ready-made prod­uct, or you can encour­age your par­ents to be cre­ative and give them a kit for mak­ing sou­venir soap with your own hands. No soap-mak­ing skills are required here: the kit includes detailed instruc­tions and all the nec­es­sary ingre­di­ents.

7. Flor pot

Grow­ing par­ents can be giv­en a flor pot where they can trans­plant one of their pets. It will be great if you dec­o­rate the pot in a Christ­mas style. Or choose an indoor flor, the ide­al option is the poin­set­tia, which is also called the “Christ­mas star”.

9. A bottle of natural edible oil

Unre­fined cold-pressed oil is not only tasty, but also a healthy prod­uct, rich in many vit­a­mins, min­er­als and fat­ty acids. Olive, lin­seed, sesame, hemp — choose any, but rather give your par­ents a set of sev­er­al types of edi­ble oils.

10. Christmas wreath

Woman, wife or girl­friend

11. Ladanka

It is a small bag of incense and is worn along with a pec­toral cross. An ele­gant piece of jel­ry that match­es the occa­sion.

12. Bathrobe

What could be bet­ter after a hot shor than wrap­ping your­self in a soft ter­ry bathrobe? A prod­uct made of nat­ur­al hypoal­ler­genic mate­ri­als will be a won­der­ful and cozy gift for any woman.

13. A set of sheet masks for the face

A lit­tle risky, but a nice gift if you guess right with the choice. Such a present can only be giv­en if you know the girl ll and are sure which care prod­ucts she prefers. You can buy a ready-made set or assem­ble it your­self, choos­ing the masks of your choice and pack­ing them beau­ti­ful­ly.

14. Shopping bag

Not only a fash­ion acces­so­ry, but also an attribute of an eco-friend­ly and con­scious lifestyle. A roomy, reusable bag with com­fort­able han­dles made of eco-friend­ly mate­ri­als is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of prac­ti­cal­i­ty and style.

15. Silver jelry

A chain, a ring or ear­rings — a mod­est piece of jel­ry will be an appro­pri­ate Christ­mas gift for your beloved woman. Choose a lacon­ic design to be sure that the present will fit any look.

Man, hus­band or boyfriend

16. Warm scarf

Win­ter is in full swing, which means you need to make sure that your loved one is always warm. A warm scarf will be a great gift — both cute and prac­ti­cal at the same time. Choose wool with a small addi­tion of acrylic — such a prod­uct will warm ll, but it will not prick. A more valu­able alter­na­tive to a store-bought scarf is one that is hand-knit­ted.

17. Bag of sets

They say that men are big babies. What do kids love the most? Of course, sets! If the recip­i­ent of your gift has a big set tooth, he will sure­ly be delight­ed with a set of his favorite desserts. Sets, cook­ies, cakes can be dec­o­rat­ed in a Euro­pean man­ner by putting them in a sock-shaped bag.

18. Bath set

The min­i­mum com­po­si­tion is a tol, a bath hat and a broom. But you can expand the set based on your capa­bil­i­ties: it would be appro­pri­ate to add soap, sev­er­al types of tea, jam and aro­ma oils to it.

19. Christmas toy

Dec­o­rat­ing the Christ­mas tree is orig­i­nal­ly a Christ­mas tra­di­tion. The vicis­si­tudes of his­to­ry have changed it and now the green beau­ty is a sym­bol of the New Year. But at Christ­mas, it’s time to remem­ber the ori­gins of this cus­tom and give a loved one a Christ­mas toy in the shape of an angel, a dove, a house or a cute ani­mal.

20. Thermal mug

It retains heat no worse than a ther­mos, but at the same time it is much more com­pact and more con­ve­nient to use. Lover of hot drinks — just in time. You can com­ple­ment the gift with a set of tea or cof­fee.


21. Aroma candle with the smell of citrus

Pho­to: pixabay.com

The flame of a can­dle will bring mys­tery, and a bright cit­rus aro­ma will bring a sense of cel­e­bra­tion and an approach­ing mir­a­cle. What else do you need on Christ­mas Eve?

22. Turk

Pho­to: @samer-daboul, pexels.com

When choos­ing dish­es for cof­fee, be sure to pay atten­tion to the mate­r­i­al of its man­u­fac­ture. A qual­i­ty cezve should be made of cop­per, as this met­al best pre­serves the orig­i­nal cof­fee aro­ma. Con­nois­seurs of a hot drink will def­i­nite­ly not leave indif­fer­ent such a gift.

23. Angel lamp

The 3D night light gives an unob­tru­sive soft light and fills the room with Christ­mas mag­ic due to the illu­sion of vol­ume. The col­or of the lamp can be changed at your dis­cre­tion or you can set the auto­mat­ic mode for chang­ing the back­light. A very appro­pri­ate Christ­mas sur­prise.

24. Homemade cookies

If you’re con­fi­dent enough in your culi­nary skills, please your friends with your own baked goods. Christ­mas cook­ies are a cute and tasty gift filled with sin­cere love and care.

25. Christmas printed plaid

How pleas­ant it is to wrap your­self in a warm blan­ket with deer and snowflakes on a cold win­ter evening and, while sip­ping hot spicy tea, watch your favorite movie or read anoth­er book.

How to choose the right gift for Christmas

On the bright­est hol­i­day of the year, you want to please your loved ones with a spe­cial gift, but how to guess with a sur­prise? It will help to under­stand this dif­fi­cult ques­tion. spe­cial­ist in the field of psy­chol­o­gy Anna Dunae­va.

- If you think that the more expen­sive the gift, the more valu­able it will be for a per­son, then this is not entire­ly true. And it’s not even about the orig­i­nal­i­ty of the gift. Here are some use­ful tips to help you choose a present that the recip­i­ent will sure­ly like.

  1. You can focus on the inter­ests of a per­son if you know him ll. Based on what a per­son is fond of, what he col­lects, you can under­stand what he would like to receive. Hov­er, here it is impor­tant to dive deeply into the top­ic of the inter­ests of a loved one, oth­er­wise there is a great risk of mis­cal­cu­lat­ing and giv­ing some­thing that is not need­ed or is already there.
  2. If you are think­ing about a gift for one of the fam­i­ly mem­bers, then you can give some­thing that will res­ur­rect shared mem­o­ries and make you feel the warmth and ten­der­ness of the moments expe­ri­enced again.
  3. One of the best ideas is to give an expe­ri­ence (a tick­et to a con­cert, a mas­ter class and pho­tog­ra­phy). But for this you need to be sure that a per­son will not put your con­cert tick­et on the far shelf, and then com­plete­ly for­get about it. In this case, it is bet­ter to focus on mate­r­i­al gifts.
  4. And if you don’t know the per­son ll or you don’t have com­mon inter­ests, just ask! Ask what the per­son would like to receive as a gift, and then you will def­i­nite­ly not get into trou­ble. It is gen­er­al­ly con­sid­ered inap­pro­pri­ate to ask a per­son about a gift, but it would be eas­i­er for every­one if peo­ple re open about their desires. So a per­son will real­ly get what he dreams of and what he can­not buy for him­self for some rea­son.

The main thing to remem­ber is that a per­son always feels the sin­cer­i­ty of inten­tions, so when choos­ing a gift, show atten­tion and care, espe­cial­ly on such a bright hol­i­day as Christ­mas.
