Last Minute Christmas Gift Shopping Guide
You’ve left all your Christmas shopping until the week before Christmas haven’t you. It’s OK. I know the feeling, it’s one I get every year…panic and fear that the shops will be rammed. You want to get in and out as quick as possible and avoid the endless queues of crazed shoppers.
Luckily we’ve compiled a last minute Christmas shopping guide to help you with your ideas on what to get you friends and family. So strap in.
The Film Fan
Netflix Gift Subscription
No one likes arguing over the remote control at Christmas and not everyone likes the traditional offering of animation and Christmas specials. Give the gift of TV and film. Netflix learns what you like and suggests films and shows to you from a diverse range of genres from rom-com, action, and comedy to television series and much more.
You can choose whether you want to give a month’s subscription for £5.99, 6 months for £35.94 or a full year for £71.88 and Netflix is accessible on over 800 devices, so anyone can settle down to enjoy a film in front of their laptop, games console, smart phone or other internet enabled device. Go to www.netflix.com/gift
Marshall MS-2 Micro-Amp
This micro amp is possibly the cutest way to rock. Who am I kidding, what do I know about music. The Marshall MS-2 Micro Amp can be used as a speaker or if you really want to draw people’s attention, as a tiny guitar amp.
It measures 14cm x 11cm x 6 cm and is available in black for £27.95 from www.prezzybox.com.
The Beauty Lover
For the fickle make up and beauty lover, this is the ideal gift and if you plan on getting a subscription, it will make Christmas come every month. Expect luxe sample sizes and one full sized product every month. There are numerous companies that do this service but Glossy Box is the best know. Can’t find anything for men this side of the pond yet though, sorry guys. Get Glossy box at £10 a month, £27 for 3 months or £50 for 6 months.
Quarterly.co is an awesome new scheme which bundles up three products curated by your favourite contemporary influencers. As the name suggests, the box you receive is quarterly and contributors include designers, bloggers and writers. The packages you receive varies depending on which subscription you sign up to, but trust me, there will be something to peak your giftee’s interests. Subscribe at Quarterly.co.
Kindle E-Reader or Tablets
I can’t recommend an e-reader enough, I have one and it’s saved my arms on many tube journeys. Also I can pretend to be all zen and clutter free as my library becomes digital. Amazon’s range of Kindles is perfect for a variety of demanding gift recipients. Ranging from a basic distraction free kindle at £69 to the all singing all dancing Kindle Fire HD at £159 you can even get Amazon to gift wrap your presents at the warehouse before they ship it. Get yours at Amazon.
Evernote Smart Notebook
A notebook so clever you need a video to show you how it works. Moleskine’s synonymous with creativity, but how can paper be intelligent? Well the notebook combined with the app combined with colour co-ordination makes your life and your gift recipients one simpler. Now maybe they’ll remember your birthday. The Evernote Smart Notebook costs £19.99 and is available from the Moleskine Store
