Shopping for Christmas gifts in 2020 isn't the easiest thing, especially with all the pandemic restrictions making what is usually the most hectic time a year, even more hectic.
Not only are queues are the queues in all the stores significantly longer (you might even have to dedicate a few hours to each store you visit) but the looming fears of catching COVID whilst out and about are a constant worry - and that's all whilst having to get your thinking cap on for great gift ideas for your loved ones. Luckily, the latter is something we can help with.
No matter how well you know your friends and family, we all need a little help when it comes to gift inspiration. This year, we've created bespoke guides to help you shop everything from Christmas gifts for your girlfriend, the best Christmas gifts on sale, and eco-friendly Christmas gifts to wellness gifts, cozy gifts and even all the best trending christmas gifts 2020 has to offer.
Shopping for the special woman in your life can be overwhelming. Between all the latest skincare, make up and fashion products out there, not to mention sentimental gifts like jewellery or anything personalised.
There are plenty of Christmas gifts on sale right now, you just need to know where to look. This year has been a difficult one financially, the pandemic has not only caused an economic crisis but our individual incomes have been compromised too due to lay offs and salary decreases.

It has never been easier to shop eco-friendly Christmas gifts. With all that's happening in the world, more and more of us are committing to a sustainable lifestyle to do our bit to save the environment and over the years, many brands have been doing the same.

From beauty products like make up and skincare essentials to fashion staples that'll last you all year around, some gifts are always going to be an instant win.
If there's one thing we all need this year, it's some lovely wellness gifts. 2020 has been a hard pill to swallow for many of us, that's no secret. We all need to unwind as we approach the end of the year and what better way to do so than with a little wellness session? From soothing diffusers to spruce up your energy and atmosphere to though-provoking journals to track your healthy progress and even calming candles to make you feel at ease, the list of Christmas gifts 2020 has to offer when it comes to self care is endless.
Cozy gifts are the best Christmas gifts. There, we've said it. There really is nothing like receiving something that amplifies your comfort, especially now that we're spending so much time at home.
In a year filled with crazy chaos and anxiety, all we really want to feel is calm and relaxed as we enter 2021, and what better way to do that than in a cozy environment? Help your friends, family and loved ones create just that by giving them a cosy gift this Christmas.
