Buying Christmas gifts for family and friends can be a hassle — not only is battling the crowds at the mall to find the perfect gift a pain, but we all know someone who is incredibly picky or who seems to have everything already. Well instead of picking up another gift card, or stuffing cash into an envelope last minute, we have 10 Christmas gift ideas that are sure to surprise your friends and family.
1. Cooking Classes
Obviously signing your mother up for cooking classes probably isn’t the best idea, [unless she really needs them] but maybe your friend or brother have been talking about learning how to make authentic sushi, so why not sign them up. A gift like this shows you’ve been listening to them all year and is something they probably wouldn’t get for themselves.
2. Event Tickets
Whether you know an avid Oilers fan or a Lady Gaga fan, event tickets are a great gift. So if you are stuck trying to decide on the perfect gift for the person who has everything, get them tickets to their favourite concert, show or sport.
If someone you know has been talking about learning how to snowboard, lessons are a great gift. It will get them out of the house and trying something new — and if it doesn’t seem to be their sport at least the memories of the falls will remind them that next time they should try skiing instead!
MAC Cosmetics has adorable limited edition holiday sets — from lipgloss to eyeshadow, these sets are the perfect gift for your girlfriends, sisters or cousins.
