Christmas Gift Ideas LetteringWant some Christmas gift ideas? Time to start your Christmas shopping, but you have no idea where to start? I’m here to help.

We all have that tricky person on our Christmas gift list. Someone who is difficult to buy for and dare I say it, a little bit Bah Humbug? Someone who is very practical, down to earth and likes to give and receive “a present you can use”. Today I have Christmas gift ideas for these people.

So, I will be publishing a series of posts pulling together a variety of Christmas gift lists. To help you fight Christmas gift clutter, I have aimed to make everything useful, beautiful or both.

So if you need Christmas stocking fillers, Secret Santa presents or are just looking for new ideas for Christmas gifts this year for friends and family then read on.

There will be present ideas here to suit everyone: For her, for him, mum, dad, sister, brother and friends. The ideas can also be scaled to your budget i.e. for a wallet you can spend £1 or £50.

Each post will cover a group of Christmas gifts that are linked together by a category. That way you can either choose just one or you can take a few from each list and put them together as a theme for a Christmas hamper or stocking stuffers.
