Gift Ideas For Different People At Christmas

If you are looking for a gift for a loved one this Christmas, it can be a little bit difficult to know where to begin. We have decided to put this blog post together to help you out. We are going to reveal some present ideas based on the person you’re buying for, and we hope that this will give you a helping hand. 

Gift for a baby – A giant teddy bear

A giant teddy bear is a desirable gift for many. It can provide masses of comfort and something warm and cuddly to snuggle into at night. It can also be a symbol of love and affection and is thus a great gift for Valentine’s Day. Furthermore, it can also become a child’s best friend and confidant. It is fair to say; everyone loves a teddy bear!

Almost everyone has, or has had, a giant teddy bear in their life at some point, and if you haven’t then the choices are you probably want one. Buying a teddy may seem like an easy process however it can prove to be more difficult than some of you may imagine. With so many versions of the soft toy available, it is often hard to know which giant teddy bear is the best for the person, you are buying it for. However, by following these few simple steps you can make the process a whole lot easier…


This is essential when considering buying any toy, especially in the case of young children. If you are buying a giant teddy bear for a young child make sure it does not have any little beads or other small elements attached. The best idea would be to buy a bear with its features merely sewn alone rather than having to worry about the possibility of loose beads etc that the child could easily pick up and put in their mouth. 


The colour of the toy is again an important note to consider, once more especially when you are buying for a child. If your child is slightly older then the chances are that they will probably have a favourite colour so this can make things a lot easier. However, if you are buying for a young child then it is important not to buy a colour that is too intimidating. I would recommend going with traditional colours such as a soft brown, as this is generally associated with comfort. If you are buying a teddy bear for your loved one then go for colours associated with love, softness, and affection, these include; red, pink, whites and creams, and brown. 


Finally, an essential thing to note when buying a giant teddy bear is the features of the bear itself. If you are buying for a small child then it is crucial that the features of the bear are large and placed at the front of the toy. This is essential in provoking an immediate and long-lasting reaction from the child. Children become disinterested easily so you need to make sure that the features are substantial enough to maintain their interest. If you are buying a giant teddy bear for your loved one then it goes without saying that the bear needs to possess a loving element and this is obviously created through its features. Go for a bear with a loving smiley or one with a heart in its hands, to create a direct symbol of love.

Gift for a couple – Titles 

It can be difficult to buy a gift for a couple. You want something that they are both going to like. However, buying a bottle of alcohol or a hamper seems a bit too cliched, and you may be worried that someone else has already gone done this route with their gifts. This is why we recommend something like Celtic Titles, as this is a gift that the couple in question certainly will not expect. 

With this, the couple will be able to become Lady or Lord of Ardmore, meaning they can add an official title to all of their documents, such as their passport. That is pretty cool in itself, right? However, they will also have their own plot of land that they will be able to visit at any time. This sort of gift helps the environment too, as it will help couples to create and sustain a nature reserve in Ireland. 

Gift for your grandparents – Something that is personal

Buying a gift for your grandparents can be difficult. As your grandparents are obviously from a different generation, it can be difficult to understand what sort of presents they will enjoy and appreciate. 

This is why we advise going for something that is personal! This is the sort of gift that is going to mean a lot to your grandparents. This could be a framed photo of you together, or it could be an experience gift that you can all enjoy together, such as going out for a lovely meal.

Putting this sort of thought into a gift is something that is guaranteed to put a smile on your grandparent’s faces. After all, all that most grandparents want is a bit of love and recognition, so giving them this gift is bound to make them feel incredible at this festive time of the year.
