The season of giving is fast approaching. 

And for some of us, although we’ve had 300-plus days to prepare, shopping for Christmas presents still leaves us stumped.

Figuring out what to get our loved ones can be a difficult job.  The significance of getting a meaningful gift increases because most of us want to get something we know will be cherished or found to be useful.  

Have no fear, Yello is here. 

We’ve come up with some out-of-the-box gift ideas that we believe will delight those on the receiving end.  These suggestions are going to see you well on your way to becoming an A-list gift-giver (our title) among your family and friends.

Let’s rock ‘n roll.  Here’s the list we’ve compiled.  And, it’s early yet, so there’s still time to make it happen.

This present is sure to ‘wow’ your mum, sister, partner or spouse.  Samantha La Touche of PurElegance Designs has been crafting beautiful and functional African print accessories.  Visit PurElegance Designs on Facebook and scroll through their catalogue of handcrafted clutches, hats, earrings and bracelets–all at affordable prices.

While purchasing a van Gogh may be out of the question, acquiring a beautiful, practical piece of art isn’t.  Society6 has wonderfully designed pieces that will lighten your home or workspace.  Choose from among custom artistic prints on mugs, throw pillows to wall tapestries and throw blankets.   These are gifts that are guaranteed to warm the heart, and you get to be a patron of fine art.

Now we’re thinking outside of the box.  Ask anyone; no one wants to hear the word ‘cleaning’ after the holidays—and, certainly not your little cleaning elves.  So why not purchase a cleaning voucher and give your spouse, partner or mother a rest. Chances are after the days spent redecorating, baking and entertaining they’ll need it.  The folks at Extreme Cleaning Services have been receiving rave reviews for their fast and efficient service.

Natural soaps

Give the gift of soap; no we’re not trying to be snide.  We’re not talking about any soap; this holiday, give the gift of a beauty soap made of natural ingredients. Skin Indulgence is known for using natural herbs, minerals and plants to produce a cadre of soaps.  Tumeric, sulphur, cactus, goat’s milk, and rosemary are just a few of the soaps available.  Check their Facebook page if you’d like to learn more about them, or even better, to shop.

Decorative paper gift boxes

One of the joys of receiving presents is the presentation, or rather the wrapping.  Seeing the beautifully wrapped boxes lends to creating that ‘special’ feeling.  Well, Tease Bootyque has revolutionised this idea of gift wrapping by creating beautifully designed paper boxes.  These delicately crafted boxes are ideal for housing that piece of jewellery you’re planning to give. The team also creates distinctive paper lanterns, with LED lighting.  Visit them on Facebook and take a gander of their offerings.

With a little less than a month to Christmas, it’s time to get on it.  There are many other unconventional gift ideas out there. However, we would like to think we’ve given you a good start.

Happy shopping!
