Gifts for the New Year
New Year is one of the most beloved holidays for several generations and it is hard to even imagine a person who would not celebrate it. For most people, the New Year has a stable association with gifts, so it is unacceptable to forget about such an important element of the celebration. At the same time, you always want to give something worthwhile, which at the same time would not be too banal or stupid.
So that none of our readers rack their brains in vain, will consider the most popular and appropriate gifts for all the main categories of loved ones.
Choosing gifts for children
If for adults this holiday can still somehow do without gifts, then for children the New Year without presents is a complete failure and disappointment. Kids are sincerely waiting for cool and cool gifts, mainly from their parents and other close relatives. Consider the various options for what you can put your baby under the Christmas tree.
- Toys can be a good solution for childrenwho have not yet outgrown the lor grades of school, but such a recommendation is too general. First of all, for one of the two main holidays (the second is birthday), you should not choose too modest decisions, otherwise they will be associated with an everyday gift from parents.
In addition, the chosen toy should correspond not only to the hobbies of the child, but also to his age.
- Gadgets and accessories are popular gifts for any modern person, and even for a baby, they often become an indicator of his “coolness”. If the child is very small, it is worth consulting with the parents whether it is necessary to distract the child from school. new smartphone or tabletbut here’s a cute and beautiful cover for the unit, which has already been purchased, you can always give.
- Impression — one of the best gifts for a person, especially if it is a child who is a priori impressionable. At the same time, it must be remembered that the New Year is a non-banal holiday, here it is necessary, albeit a small, but a real miracle, because a good solution would be, say, ticket to a concert of your favorite artistespecially if the recipient is already a teenager.
You can also beat something that the child really likes: for example, someone who likes to splash in the water can give a subscription to the pool.
- Clothes and accessories are generally considered to be stop-listed for children, but there are two categories of minors to which this statement does not apply: fashion girls and teenagers of any gender. If the thing is truly stylish, the child will quickly appreciate that his environment considered the new look “cool”. Gloves, bracelet and even a bacweack (with the right print) will be received with a bang.
- Childhood is a continuous movement. If adults usually need an excuse to play sports, then children simply do it every day in huge amounts, without even thinking about it. Of course, it is more interesting to keep yourself in physical shape if sports exercises are dressed in some kind of game form, therefore goods for football, basketball, volleyball or hockey will come in handy. With no less enthusiasm, “personal transport” will also be accepted: a bicycle, a scooter, a skateboard or roller skates.
Sometimes a good option is to install a Sdish wall right in the nursery — the projectile can be additionally equipped with swings or horizontal bars.
- As in the case of sports, children rarely think about the role of creativity in their lives - they simply create if there is such a desire, and it is usually present. At the same time, a certain set for drawing or modeling is quite small for the New Year, so you should pay attention to large creator’s Kitproduced today for children of all ages. With their help, you can try yourself even in an unusual role, for example, a soap maker.
- If are talking about a girl, cosmetics can be a good gift for her. Contrary to popular belief, this gift will fit at any age, you just need to choose the right kind. Babies who want to be like their mother should be given special children’s cosmetics, which do not hold up so ll, but are completely harmless. The girl will learn the basics of makeup in a playful way.
If are talking about a teenager, then perhaps it is time to give her real cosmetics for personal care.
- If the child is sociable and always surrounded by a large number of friendsfor him the best gift would be something that can be used in a fun company. A popular option in recent years has become a trip to the quest room, where friends will have to turn into a real team in order to solve the task. Alternatively, you can send all the kids to the movies.
Presents for adults
That’s where the space for choosing gifts is huge, so this is when choosing a present for the New Year for an adult. Sometimes such a person will be pleased that they have not forgotten about him at all, and then even the most banal souvenir will seem like a sensible idea. In addition, in most cases, adults are not tied purely to the New Year theme, you can give them anything — useful or long-desired.
For this reason, our list does not even remotely claim to represent all possible options, only suggest several popular, but not the most hackneyed solutions.
- Plaid with sleeves, decorated, for example, with deer — a chic practical New Year’s gift that suits a person of any age and gender. This is a very convenient thing for those who like to warm themselves under the covers and are very upset that their hands are often outside — here the blanket is with you everywhere, and not just in bed, and your hands are protected from the cold. With such an accessory it is convenient and warm to even play on a tablet, even to knit socks.
- Animal hat — a great gift for girls who love animals. In winter, such an accessory will come in handy in any case, and there is no contradiction in such a gift — although it looks like fur, in fact, the material here is artificial. Such a present looks very cute — usually it is also equipped with characteristic ears.
- Kitchen aprons with a typical Christmas print - another solution for all ages. Such a gift is good because it is inexpensive, but it also creates the appropriate mood, and will come in handy in the household. Depending on the gender of the person who is given such a gift, Santa Claus or his faithful friend Snegurochka can be depicted on the product.
At the same time, women should give such things with some caution — the apron should neither be “sent to the kitchen” nor look vulgar, since there are models of such a plan.
- snow blaster — a technological solution for those who are ready to fall into childhood again, only with a serious, adult approach. Similar device allows you to automatically make perfectly round snowballs and launch them by analogy with an ordinary school slingshot. In everyday life, such a thing, of course, is not useful, but if there are at least two more like-minded people with the same “apon”, there is no more effective way to organize a New Year’s mood.
- Gift package or basket - this is an interesting symbolic gift for those who have long lost the habit of a miracle. Instead of a banal presentation of gifts, such a present can really be received by mail from a person who decided to surprise you. There, most likely, there will be nothing really expensive, the emphasis is usually on various food products, but they are made in the best traditions of bygone times — all natural and without flashy wrapping paper.
Of course, such a set is already sold ready-made, but the recipient will probably get the impression that he has gone back in time for at least half a century and received a real package from somewhere far away — this is the miracle that everyone is waiting for.
- Down slippers — Another inexpensive gift option, which, in spite of everything, is in stable demand. It is no secret that warm air rises to the ceiling, and cold air descends, it is also ll known that it is enough to overcool the legs to catch a cold throughout the body. Slippers based on down are not only very soft, but also indescribably warm, they are time and forever solve the problem of socks - at home they simply will not be needed. Of course, you don’t look like such slippers all year round, but literally everything in their design suggests that they re created specifically for winter.
Interesting ideas for friends
To be honest, good friends must know what a friend is dreaming of — it definitely slipped through the conversation at least once, and this is what will be the perfect gift, because what could be better than a dream come true?
By giving a friend the gift that he wanted, you will once again show that a friendship is not accidental: at least you know how to hear a friend and are ready to take certain steps so that a loved one is satisfied.
Another thing is that it is not always so simple. Often, adults, accomplished people as a whole already have everything that others could give them, and the only thing that is missing, therefore, has not appeared yet, since it costs a very impressive amount or, in general, is not measured by financial categories. Naturally, leaving a friend without a gift at all in such a situation would be completely stupid, so consider pleasant solutions with meaning that will help get out of the situation.
- Tea or coffee often give to colleagues, spending a small amount on such a present, but your friend could turn out to be a real connoisseur of the drink, and you could find something very rare and expensive for him. It is possible that the recipient not only can afford such a gift himself, but even tried what you give — this still does not change the essence, because you show the value of a person.
- Alcohol in some ways very similar to tea or coffee, but it is usually given only to the stronger sex. You should not give such things if a friend is completely teetotal or uses only on very big holidays, hover, in all other cases, such a present will fit, only do not be too lazy to find a large store and choose something not the most typical there.
A hot drink in small quantities will help a friend relax after hard work or be used productively during the next holiday.
- Tie — Another popular corporate gift option for a man, but if your friend does not work in a company where he is presented with them annually, such a present will come in handy. The essence of such a gift is to take care of the appearance of a loved one, but strangers meet him precisely by his clothes. If the suit, or at least just a shirt, is not completely alien to the gifted, handed a tie to impresswhether it’s a job interview, a business meeting, or a date with a charming lady.
- Oil burner — a good gift choice for women who have everything. Women, as representatives of the more sensual sex, are very picky about all the details around them, including the atmosphere in the room. Various aromatic oils today are no longer a rarity in our country, they began to be used not only as components of various cosmetics, but also as incense. With the help of an aroma lamp you provide a gifted friend with a good mood and pleasant relaxation.
- Tableware as a gift for the New Year seems too banal option, but in fact it all depends on how you approach this issue. No one forces you to opt for inexpensive and banal solutions — it is quite possible to give a friend an expensive and exquisite service or a set of dishes. Let them not be used every day, but the hostess will no longer blush in front of the guests because of trivial plates. In addition, dishes are not always used as cutlery: you can give a commemorative plate from a distant country, which will be a wonderful souvenir.
- Cigarette case — a common gift for men, but for ladies, even if they smoke, such products are usually not produced. In fact, such an accessory is not so necessary — most modern gentlemen do without it, but with it your friend will look like a true aristocrat.
- Headphones — a gift option that does not provide for restrictions on the gender of the person being presented, since everyone listens to music without exception. The beauty of this solution is that you can not worry about whether a friend already has other headphones, and whether someone else will give him the same gift. Any person who has experience with this accessory knows that headphones are usually not only not eternal, but not even durable, because in any case, your present will not have to gather dust for too long.
- Flash drive — a solution for those who have not come up with anything better. Although computers today are used by everyone without exception, in recent years such a gift has greatly lost its popularity — now almost any gadget is freely connected to the Internet, which means that there is no need for a portable physical storage medium. On the other hand, it is still better to store copies of important documents on a flash drivewhich you can always take with you and for a friend who is actively working with documents, such a gift will still not be superfluous — its “competitors”, as in the case of headphones, will not last forever.
If you have also chosen a flash drive of a non-standard “appearance”, guided by the hobbies of a friend, then the gift becomes good from two sides at once — both the souvenir is beautiful and practicality does not fail.
List of universal things
There are also gifts that are both logical, pleasant and not tied to the role of a person in your life — they can be given to anyone. Here the space for fantasy is the widest, therefore Let’s look at some of the most common examples of New Year’s gifts.
- picture can be presented at any time of the year, but the New Year’s flavor will be added to it, for example, by the depicted symbol of the coming year. At the same time, if you do not chase after a purely New Year’s design, the gift will remain an actual interior decoration for many years, but a cozy atmosphere is already a good gift.
- Ball for decision making everyone saw it in the movies, but in reality you can meet it very rarely. Of course, it is not very correct to trust your fate to the theory of probability, but some people are so indecisive that they are constantly tormented by doubts even in such matters as what to ar or what to choose for dinner. For them, such a gift can be very practical.
- Even a document cover can be a good gift, if you approached the choice of a presentation with a creative idea. To be honest, it is better to make such things yourself, but only if you are confident in your abilities. Scrapbooking coverand even exploiting the favorite subject of the gifted person, he will surely like it.
- Coffee table or breakfast tray in bed — indeed, not the most common solutions, but this is a plus. Most people are not very happy about the need to wake up in the morning, and even on a day off, when a person has already had enough sleep, they often do not want to get out of bed. Any accessory that adds comfort to the moment of awakening should be received with delight, especially if you find it in a personalized design.
- Santa Claus invitation — a somewhat unusual option if this is a gift for a person over eight years old, hover, in recent years, such solutions have been practiced quite often. In the end, if such actors are invited to corporate parties, then why does the idea of inviting them to a home party look bad? Such a decision will appeal to those who want a little miracle on New Year’s Eve, but in fact, the situation can be beaten in a completely different way if his granddaughter comes instead of grandfather.
- Glass ball with an installation in the form of a landscape and falling snow inside — a very popular souvenir that creates a New Year’s mood in any situation. The beauty of such a decision is that it is appropriate in any case — for relatives, and for colleagues, and for friends.
- A wallet is a simple, but at the same time very practical gift.. With this present, you seem to symbolically hint that new levels of income should come with the New Year, which is regularly mentioned in congratulatory toasts.
- Suitcase, bacweack or handy travel bag. If the recipient does not belong to those who constantly sit at home, but often go on business trips or travel, the practicality of such a solution is obvious. Of course, this is not the same as directly sending a loved one on a luxury tour, but if he starts packing himself, then thanks to you, his fees will be a little easier — at least you don’t have to look for a bag.
What should not be given?
There is no unequivocal stop list of gifts for the New Year — theoretically, everything depends only on the preferences of a particular person, and he can suddenly be glad even that everyone else would consider a completely unsuccessful present.
For this reason, the most sensible advice is to always start from the situation.
Hover, gifts that are more often unsuccessful can still be singled out, which will do. First of all, not only children, but also adults are waiting for a miracle this night. If you are not too close with a person, you can give him nothing at all — often this is better than handing a trinket. The little thing with the symbols of the New Year that you handed over to the person presented, most likely, is completely unnecessary, but now he feels obliged to you, and if he has not prepared anything in return, this will put the person in an awkward situation.
Another unwanted gift is personal items of any kind. Cosmetics, perfumes and underar are undoubtedly useful things, but they are usually part of a certain image that a person has defined for himself and is unlikely to deviate from it. If are not talking about the closest person, whose features you know by heart, the probability of guessing with the choice will be minimal. With underar, the problem is also in choosing the size.
If it seems to you that the recipient of the gift would still be interested in such a presentation theme, just hand the certificate to the appropriate store — let the person choose for himself what he likes.
In a situation where you want to show your disposition towards a person with a gift, Don’t even think about postponing the choice of a present until the last moment. As practice shows, you can’t pick up a good gift in the hustle and bustle — when time is running out, consciousness involuntarily seeks to solve the problem as quickly as possible and grabs the most primitive options. As a result, in a panic, you will almost certainly opt for a stupid trinket, all the shortcomings of which have already been described above.
In addition, the person to whom you hand it over will consider such a present a gesture of courtesy, but will understand that you did not try to be interested in his real hobbies.
