It’s Christmas time soon, which means that it’s the season of giving and sharing the love with thoughtful gifts. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Movement Control Orders and social distancing, shopping for the perfect gift has become harder than it’s ever been before.
So, since we already know the difficulties that come with freely browsing for gifts at this time, we have created a list of our favourite gifts to help you keep the spirit of Christmas alive with ease this 2020.
1. Christmas Albums
The best thing about this season is the music. No matter what is going on around you, as soon as one hears a Christmas jingle, it’s guaranteed to get you in the holiday mood instantly. That’s exactly why we are gifted with new Christmas songs every year, and this year isn’t any different. From Meghan Trainor to Carrie Underwood, this year’s Christmas albums are the ideal gifts for both Christmas and music lovers.
2. The Big Book of Christmas Games
‘Tis the season for spending quality time with family and friends. So, having a fun activity to enjoy together is a must during this season!

Whether this gift is given to a mother, father, sibling or friend, anyone from any age is bound to enjoy its multiple activities.
3. Children’s DIY Christmas Crafts
No matter what age you are, none of us can deny that there’s a pure excitement to creating your own Christmas decorations. How thrilling it is to bring all the festive colours together with sequins, glitter and more to create baubles, snow globes, and even gingerbread houses! With that in mind, another gift idea that’ll be perfect for young kids is DIY Christmas crafts, which can be crafted according to their own imagination.
