Gift Ideas for the Men and Women in Your Life

It might be that Christmas is just around the corner, and you're struggling for gift ideas for your husband, or maybe your girlfriend already seems to own everything, and you're struggling for new ideas for a creative and thoughtful gift. Take a look through this list for women and men, and see if you can find something to wow them the next time you buy for them.

Gifts for the Lady in Your Life

A digital photo frame – as an addition to printing out pictures, you can also put them onto a digital photo frame. This way, you can see a whole slide show of images you could never get with a printed picture.

A home-cleaning gift set – if you want to make someone feel better when they are unwell, a clean house can make all the difference. Make them a gift set with lots of nice smelling products and air fresheners. If you're feeling particularly generous, you could also volunteer to clean for them if they are too unwell to clean for themselves.

Magazine subscription – for anyone that's stuck in the house because they aren't well, finding something to do to stave off the boredom can mean the difference between having a restful day and a day of pain. A subscription to a magazine can mean that your loved one has something to keep their mind off things, or try to find lots of back issues of a magazine that you know they like.

Bath gift set – when someone is feeling unwell, taking a relaxing bath is one of the best ways to start feeling better. The heat from the bath can help you sweat out a cold, and essential oils have properties that can aid with relaxation and healing. Try making a bath-themed gift set that had everything you might need for a night of pampering. This might include a new bath bomb, body lotions, and a candle to really set the mood.

Incense – after a relaxing bath, nothing sets the mood like lighting a stick of incense. Pick a flavor like jasmine for a more subtle mood-setting scent that will make a room that much more relaxing. These are also cheap to buy, so they are the perfect thing to include in a gift box with other treats to make someone feel better.

A shawl for winter – if the turning season is causing your partner or a good friend to feel sick, try buying them a new shawl to make them feel warm and cozy. A girlfriend will definitely appreciate a fleece with arms, so they can wear it around the house.

Flowers – perhaps the most classic of presents, this doesn’t stop flowers from being a wonderful gift for any occasion, be it for an anniversary or if you're struggling for condolence gifts delivery ideas. Colorful flowers in spring can bring life to a room, and roses will always signify love and relationships perfectly. Try having a custom bouquet arranged for your gift, and if you know them, choose flowers that you know your loved one likes. If you want to take it a step further, try your hand at arranging them yourself with flowers from the garden.

A heated blanket – if it's the dead of winter and you hear someone you know worrying that the house is getting too cold, try gifting them with a heated blanket or a personal heater. A heated blanket can be put on top of the mattress when you're making the bed, and then set to a warming temperature before you go to sleep. This makes the inside of the bed warm and toasty ready for you to sleep. You can even buy blankets that fit double or king-sized beds with different settings for each side, meaning that a couple can choose how warm their side of the bed is.

Gifts for the Man in Your Life

A new novel – if you've recently read a book that you love or that had an impact on you, consider gifting it to someone who's trying to feel better. The book will hopefully have a similar impact on them, and you can share time bonding about it. If you know that someone reads a certain author or genre, this can also be a great gift.

An electronic book reader – for anyone that has a house with more books in it than anything else, an electronic book reader like a Kindle could be a perfect gift. If it's for someone that isn't feeling well or not feeling themselves, a book can transport them into another world and let them forget about their ailments for a while. Electronic book readers are tiny and light compared to traditional paper books, meaning they are easier to hold or read in bed. In addition, the screen is lit up by a special technology that means you can read them in the dark without straining your eyes.

An audiobook subscription – some people prefer to listen to the radio or their books rather than read them. There are many audiobook subscriptions now available that allow people to listen to books, whether they are in bed recovering or can walk and listen at the same time. Audible has thousands of books available, all narrated by professionals, and offers a subscription service that you could gift to a friend. If they already have a subscription, try buying a gift card for them, so they can purchase some new books.

Puzzles and games – one of the worst parts about being sick and unwell is that we have to stay in the house and recover. For busy people, this may be very boring after a few days, so a gift of a puzzle book or brain teasers can be perfect for helping to keep their mind active and pass the time. For anyone that likes gadgets, Alexa from Amazon has several interactive puzzle games, as well as being a useful speaker to have in the house.
