Here's Your Definitive Guide to Lockdown Gift-Giving

Christmas is going to look a little different this year. With so many people shielding, we're relying more on being able to send each other presents through the post. That, paired with the fact that a lot of us lead different lives than we did last year, means it's time for you to get creative with the gift-giving, and we've got your back. Here are some great presents for a Christmas like no other.

A subscription box fits the bill perfectly- they're designed to be sent via the post and we have loads of options available- from a Stirrd box for foodies to a WBC YA Book Club subscription for the young adult in your life. Subscription services can be sent directly to the recipient, so you don't have to worry about going to the post office or wondering if it'll arrive on time. Plus, your gift will keep on giving- one payment will mean your loved one will get a present every month for as long as you'd like.

Our Favourites;

The WBC Gardening Book Club- £49.99 for 3 months.

Perfect for that one person who got super into gardening over lockdown- plus, for every purchase, a donation goes to Book Aid .

The Retro Vinyl Club Subscription- £104.85 for 3 months

For anyone who loves music- the Retro's experts will pick out 3 records they think they'll love and have them delivered right to their door.

Right now, lots of us are looking for ways to travel without leaving the house, and books are great for escapism. Plus, they'll definitely survive a trip through the post if you're sending them to someone who's shielding or if you're shielding yourself.

Our Favourites;

If you know someone feeling the lockdown wanderlust, this beautiful coffee table book might be the perfect escape.

Persiana by Sabrina Ghayour- £19.99

This beautiful book of Middle-Eastern recipes is so perfect for the foodies in your life.

For the people in your life struggling with lockdown boredom, and especially the ones trying to keep kids entertained over the holidays, a board game is a welcome distraction and a great bit of family time.

Our Favourites;

Obama Llama- £24.95

This rhyming game has long been a favourite among families. The rules are simple; all you have to do is find the rhyme in time!!

Think you've googled some pretty weird stuff? Think again. This game asks you to try and complete the 160 weirdest google searches, and the result is all-out hilarity.

Little Treats

These are little things you can buy someone to show them that you're thinking of them. Think of these as the next best thing to giving someone a hug.

Spacemasks- £14.99

These self-heating, jasmine-scented eye masks are relaxation incarnate, and a great way of soothing tension headaches and migraines when the holiday stress gets to be too much.

Show someone you love them the best way possible- through chocolate. This chocolate set comes from Lithuania and contains Orange Liquorice, Super Dark, Peanut Butter, Spices, Tahini and Incan Berry flavours.

If you do happen to leave gift-giving a little late for posting, please remember we also have a gift wrapping and card writing service that takes out the middle man. This means you won't have to have the gift shipped to your home first and then send it to the recipient- we can wrap it beautifully, write your card for you and deliver it directly to the recipient looking stunning.

We hope our guide helps you to figure out some gifts that are perfect for what will be a very unique Christmas!
