I’d like to believe I’m a good gift-giver, carefully observing and listening to interests, wishes and personalities of people closest to me. Not being a huge cheerleader of all things disposable means I am certainly not into disposable gifts. Investing a lot of time and thought into a gift and giving a great one does not necessarily equal investing heaps of money. In my opinion, three most important “rules” when brainstorming a present are: functionality over everything; it needs to fit that person’s personality, style and possibly wish; and longevity – has to be either long lasting or in some way reusable/ be able to be re-purposed. I thought I’d combine showing you what I received this Christmas and giving you a mix of timeless gift ideas for all budgets and interests. Hopefully you’ll still get some inspiration and good use out of it for years to come!

 

1. Gadgets

 

If you’re planning a gift for someone really close to you that just loves technology and/or is working in that sort of field and your budget is fairly large, consider getting them a tech piece – new laptop, camera, phone, game console. If you can afford it, I really don’t think you can ever go wrong with those. For a blogger like me, these things are always welcome! I’m lucky to have had my lovely Santa who got me a new laptop when my old one literally broke recently.

 

2. Jewelry

 

Another great option is quality jewelry. Girlfriends, sisters and mothers who are accessories junkies would fall in love with a new pieces of bling anytime! Here I showed you few different options: a necklace with a statement pendant by Alice Made This; a set of earrings and a thin bangle by a talented designer & musician Renée Sys, from her Confetti line; and a set of marble ring and necklace from Vitsyle.

Wrist watches are my favorite focus piece these days and I am happy to share the lovely gold one from Cluse and a classic leather-strap watch from Daniel Wellington (you can also get 15% off ANYTHING at their store with the code moi_minnie !)

 

3. Beauty

 

Got a beauty junkie on your hands? Why not stop by your local MAC counter or head to a drugstore and pick up their favorites for a little personalized beauty gift basket! This holiday season I treated myself to a cream highlighter & face mist from MAC and a new foundation from L’Oreal. Body & hair products are a great idea too!

 

4. Misc

 

If all else fails and you just do not know what to get for that one person that has everything – keep it simple. A set of handmade ceramic coffee cups, a scented candle with their preferred scent, a potted plant “for good luck”, a cashmere scarf in their favorite color, a journal with a personalized message inside… the options are truly endless.

If you’re crafty, there’s a plethora of DIY projects you can easily do and have a unique gift for little to no money! Pinterest and ISpyDIY are a great starting point for getting inspired for gift ideas. Just trust your intuition, make it meaningful and whatever you buy/make – do it from the heart.

Let me know if you have any timeless gift ideas that never fail! Also, hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I wish you nothing but health, love, wealth and happiness in the New Year and a great time when the clock strikes midnight! See you in 2016!

Zaista klasičan izbor poklona. Fotografije koje prate post su kao i uvek sjajne i govore više od reči. Ja biram sat kao bezvremenski poklon :)
