10 Great Gift Ideas your friends and family will LOVE this Christmas

It’s that time of year, summer is not quite over and suddenly Christmas starts to creep in! The shops are starting to fill their shelves with Christmas products (Halloween never gets enough attention in my opinion) social media fans are sharing the obligatory Elf meme and mince pies start to appear on the supermarket shelves.

However, it’s a time when many people start to plan for the big event and spread the cost of Christmas, something which will ring especially true this year with times being so challenging. If we start early, we won’t feel so overwhelmed, it makes the cost more manageable, and we will have more time to enjoy the festivities in December.

Studies have shown that giving gifts makes us feel much happier than when we receive them. Everyone loves to receive a gift, it makes us feel special and also lets us know that we are in someone’s thoughts. It’s also a well-known fact that by giving a gift, the pleasure and reward centres in our brain light up as though we were actually the one receiving a gift. Our body releases endorphins that make us feel great and the effects can last for up to two hours. Giving someone a gift is about more than just the gift itself, it allows us to connect with someone we care about. And remember, gifts don’t have to be lavish and extreme, often the simplest and most thoughtful of gifts can be priceless.

Here’s our top 10 gift ideas for Christmas 2022:
