In a day and age where people buy everything from food to furniture online, nothing is more exciting than receiving a gift card on Christmas. It is not only a safe present, but a considerate one as well, because you know they are going to use your gift to buy something they like.

 Almost all popular stores are online, and almost all of them have gift cards, which you can either print out or send via email, which is a great option for all the people you love that you can’t meet on Christmas.

2. A cake stencil

It is a cute accessory, which can help them accessorize their baked goods better, and make their Christmas even more exciting. Whether you want a festive message or a name or a pattern on your stencil, you can get it made, and put it in a stocking, which will account for one very happy soul on Christmas morning!

3. Nutella

I can say with relative confidence that there are very few people in this world who dislike Nutella. If you are determined to gift something that comes in a glass bottle for Christmas, swap the old bottle of wine for a “lifetime supply” of Nutella, which is the perfect present for people of all ages. You can buy several packs of the stuff on sale, since the holiday season is here, and dig into it after a hearty Christmas dinner.

If you have the time and resources, then you can also get personalized jars of Nutella, with the recipient’s name printed on the label, in the same font and color. If that isn’t one of the most unique Christmas gift ideas ever, know what is!

4. A five-year journal

A five-year journal is one of the most romantic and nostalgic things you could give someone, and Christmas is the perfect time to go around giving out five-year journals. These are diaries, where you fill in a line for each day of the year, and once the year ends, you start from the beginning, and fill in another line for each day, under the line you had written for that same day, only last year.

It is a wonderful way to keep track of your life, your progress, your mind, your growth and your memories. Also, because these are special journals, they come in super pretty colors and designs, and make for the most perfect gifts ever!

5. Googly eyes planter

Another cool gift that you can give the people you love- is plants. It’s like giving a pet, without worrying about maintenance, allergies, and a thousand other responsibilities. It is a beautiful thing that you can put inside your house and outside, and when they come in such cute little pots with googly eyes, you are bound to make some people very, very happy. These cute babies are small, concise, come in neutral colors and can look adorable in any home.

These things have been all the rage, and rightly so, because the life of adults is now all about stress, and various creative ways to relieve that stress. Since you are now an adult who must do adult things like giving people presents on Christmas instead of being on the receiving end of them, this is an appropriate gift, to say the least.

These detailed coloring books are therapeutic to the power infinity, and they even come with kits, so that you don’t have to take the effort to buy color pencils or sketch pens separately. These calming pieces of uncolored art are the perfect way to unwind, de-stress and relax, and make for some great, creative presents, especially for Christmas!

9. Custom illustrated phone cover

There are several websites, like Etsy, which customizes your phone covers, and if your friend has a pet that they are obsessed with, you can get an illustrated version of their picture on their phone cover, which would make for a truly special gift.
