It’s safe to say that we’re going to have to do Christmas a little differently this year. But this doesn’t mean that we can’t give our loved ones the little treats that make them smile.

With Christmas just around the corner, we thought now would be a great time to share the gift ideas that say, “I love you” – even if you can’t celebrate the festive season together this year.

For long-distance loved ones

Christmas usually sees many people return to their hometowns to share festivities with family and friends.

Even if some of your nearest and dearest can’t make that fateful journey this year, you could send them a special letterbox gift to show you care, whatever the distance between you.

For the creative people in your life, this subscription box from Artful will provide all the inspiration they need to create great masterpieces for years to come. It was even featured in The Telegraph’s rundown of the best letterbox gifts for 2020. We’ll let them explain more:

“Unleash their inner artist! From lino printing to sketching or illustrating, Artful will help you master a different art technique in the style of famous artists. Every three months they will receive a box with equipment and instructions to get started.”

For the self-isolator

If someone special is classed as vulnerable and has to isolate over the festive period to stay safe, why not give them something to while away those hours? This 3,000 piece jigsaw from Ravensburger will certainly keep them occupied.

For the baking queen (or king)

Home baking has been on the rise since the first lockdown, and amateur and experienced bakers alike will find plenty of baking projects courtesy of the Bread Baking Club subscription from Bakedin. They sell gift baking subscriptions for 3, 6 or 12 months, and these can be delivered directly to the lucky recipient.

In addition to their Bread Baking Club subscription, you can sign a loved one up for their Baking Club so they can create a wide range of sweet treats from month-to-month. Subscriptions cost as little as £7.50 per month and provides more than enough baking fun.

Bakedin sells one-off baking kits and recipe books too if you’re looking for something a little different.

For the travel lover

If your loved one has been bitten by the travel bug, chances are they haven’t been able to indulge it as much as they’d like over the past year. But who needs plane travel when you can have a staycation.

Gift them a travel experience to look forward to by giving them a Citystay Christmas break. You can book a two-night stay in the heart of the beautiful and charming city of Cambridge at a huge 50% off.

During their stay, they’ll also receive a range of luxurious freebies, including a bottle of bubbly, box of chocolates, luxury slippers, and bathrobes.

Our Christmas packages are super flexible, meaning guests can stay any time within 12 months of the purchase date.
