With Christmas sneaking up on us once again (and doesn’t it always seem to loom ‘just around the corner?’), the gift-buying list seems to get bigger every year. There’s your partner, your family, your grandparents, friends, clients, your Secret Santa at work… and don’t forget the boss!

This is the time of the year where not only do the wallets come out, but so do the nerves and anxiety. Buying gifts can be one of the most stressful encounters – what do they enjoy? What’s the right amount of money to spend? What is considered an appropriate gift for your boss? On top of all that, there’s a thin line between being cost-conscious and avoiding looking frugal. That is when people start looking online to find some great gift ideas for their specific recipient. A lot of the time the same sort of gift takes people’s fancy, And that is a personalized one! With the variety of personalized gifts on the market you have enough choice of gift to suit the recipient. Also, you can’t go wrong with a personalized gift as they are unique to that person, so it would be obvious you put time and thought behind it! For example, you can get a Foto Lámpara which means a personalized photo lamp in Spanish. See, they are a hit all over the world!

Needless to say, the right Christmas present depends on the recipient’s age, what they enjoy, and of course your budget. A good option is always a custom gift, like custom face socks. It shows you’ve thought carefully about the recipient and they’re not usually too expensive, despite the customization. Here are just 5 fail-proof Christmas gift ideas for 2015 that are guaranteed to put a smile on their face when they open up their present on December 25:

  • Christmas Gifts under $20: If you’ve already bought the main gift and are looking for stocking fillers, there are plenty of little gifts under $20 that add the perfect finishing touch. Try these decadent chocolates from Lindt, available in an adorable Christmas-tree shaped box or ornament star, bell, or snowball. Select from white peppermint, green mint, milk chocolate, and an assortment of flavours. Everyone has a sweet tooth, and the best part is they can be shared with others in attendance on Christmas day!
  • Christmas Gifts between $20-$50: This is a bit quirky, but is so good for the soul: donate the money that would have been used for a gift to a charity online at Karma Currency. This is the perfect gift to give someone who has everything and doesn’t need anything else. There are so many great causes that you can help fund, from basic needs to community, animals, and the environment – be charitable and give to those in need so they can live a better life. And isn’t that what Christmas is all about, anyway?
