With the heat of festive summer season right around the corner. It’s the time of year when families and close friends from all over Australia gather to spend some quality time together. Whether you share the traditional English dinner with roast turkey or have a seafood barbecue in your backyard, Christmas is all about staying connected. But regardless the convivial joy and happiness the festive season brings, for a lot of us it feels like the most hectic time of year. With the cooking, the decorations and the parties, the holidays may seem to be more like work than a vacation. Some of us also get caught up in searching for “the perfect gift“ to present to our loved ones. With six weeks to go until Christmas and time still on our side, here are some gift ideas for the in-laws to show your appreciation and love.
The Bluetooth speaker
Finally, it’s the time of year to hit the beach again, surf and sail, ride bicycles and hold barbecues beside the pool. With the summer outdoor season at its peak and music lovers will be keen to take their favorite tunes everywhere. A wireless speaker is a brilliant Christmas gift ideas , when paired up with a smartphone or tablet it makes a great listening experience under sunny skies. So why not surprise your brother with one of these waterproof Bluetooth speakers and let him turn the surf trip into a beach party with all his friends?
The health booster
Everybody loves smoothies. They are easy to take to the office or a refreshing drink to serve when friends are over. Smoothies are a great way to add fruit and veggies to the daily diet, and they are easy to make also. Last time you talked on the phone your mother told you she’s planning a reboot to start the new year? Great, get her a blender that turns ordinary food into superfood to support her healthy lifestyle.
The racing machine
For cyclists, almost nothing beats time on the bike. While on the road, riders see things they’d otherwise never get a chance to and the long miles provide an escape from everyday life.
Bikes are the absolute classic when it comes to Christmas gifts. Your father always wanted a new one but never found the time to purchase? There you go. And while it’s still summer, why not take the first ride together and make some memories.
That vintage accessory
Leather jackets have been around for decades and are yet still fresh and modern. They make a great present hence their universal use, complimenting both the party dress or smart casual clothes in any season. Your sister got a new haircut? A biker leather jacket, fitted and figure-hugging is the must have to underline her new summer look.
The stress relieving toy
You’ve seen them on the streets, in playgrounds and maybe even watched a video on youtube: fidget spinners. First marketed as aids for individuals with anxiety, autism and ADHD, now the season’s hottest toy. “Fidget spinners” are small, ball bearing devices that the user can rotate between his or her fingers. The momentum of tossing, transferring and twirling the toy is supposed to provide a pleasing sensory experience. Give your nephew a spinner this Christmas to share all the new tricks with his peers after school while waiting for the bus.
The gourmet treat
When surrounded by friends and family you want to ensure a memorable holiday celebration, so give them something you can be proud of. A gift basket is a unique and delicious present for the people in your life and the perfect way to feast on holiday flavours with the whole family. A beautifully presented festive Christmas hamper filled with a variety of sweet and savoury treats like bottles of the stunning Churches Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Honey Roasted Peanuts from Ogilvie and Co. Fine Foods are the ultimate foodie indulgence and the best way to excite your in-law gourmands this festive season.
