Simply opting for what's popular, or getting the usual Christmas aromas like winter berries or apple and cinnamon is not always the best option.

And that’s just for starters, you also need to include an engraved towel, some delicious chocolates and a scented candle or two.

Finally, all the items should be placed in a large, Christmas inspired basket and wrapped in appropriate wrapping paper for a more powerful presentation.

Bring something to life

For example, if they draw or paint, have one of their artworks framed without them knowing. This type of gift will show that you admire their passion and support their work. On the other hand, when it comes to kids, having their drawings made into fun, colourful and unusual dolls can be a magical surprise, and one that they will cherish forever. It is definitely something to consider, and it doesn’t get more personalized than that.

There you have it, some imaginative, yet simple ways you can personalize your Christmas gifts this year. The value of such a gift far exceeds any expensive item you could get last minute at the local shop. So make sure you make the time to do it.
