I LOVE Christmas shopping, I really do. ♥ So here are some ideas of things you can get for special peoplee(:
O1. GRANDMA// MOM // AUNTS ♥
- if you have a grandma // aunt // mom that's all personal about things, make her something sweet.
- try taking a cute picture of just you & her, & get it framed or make a frame yourself(:
- you can also make a mimi photo album, get her a locket with you & her in it, & things like that.(:
- besides pictures, you can knit // embroider // sew her something.
- write a poem or a story(:
- make a POP-UP card.
- bake her something special.
- take her out to dinner // movie.
- spend a girl's day out with her, YOUR treat. don't make her pay a thing. (try to find places you can WALK to then, so that she won't have to drive. ;D)
- helll, you can MAKE her a homemade video!
- you can also buy a plain mug & decorate it yourself.
- or you can make pottery,
- just head to a nearby art store, & make anything, really(: be CREATiVE. ♥
- if your grandma // aunt // mom's not really like that, you can just as well buy her something. (;
- perfumes & lotions are great, common gifts. ;p
- try to listen througout the year for hints she may give, accidentally [OR on purpose (; ]. for EXAMPLE, if theres a hole in her favorite boot & she mentions it, buy her a new pair! ♥
- some other ideas are
- a purse,
- a hat,
- house supplies, (i dont even know why but my stepmom loves getting expensive cooking supplies for christmas)
- gift cards (bath &body works, etc),
- DVD's // tapes that she wants (or likes. my mom LOVES "I love lucy")
- hair products // supplies,
- a tea set (complete with tea she might like),
- a cute stocking with many adorable & inexpensive stocking stuffers(ie a teddy bear, etc.) (:
O2. DAD // UNCLE // GRANDPA♥
- sometimes these are a little harder to do. once again, though, if they're the sentimental type, see the list above. ;p
- if not, try some of these: a mug (decorated yourself, or premade), DVD's, homemade goods (the best way to a guy's heart is through their stomach! ;D), baseball cap or jersey, gift cards to stores like modells, etc;
O3. LiTTLE SiBLINGS ♥
- these are pretty eaasy peasssyy. ;p
- get them a cute little stuffed animal, or baby's things, like a bib, a rattle, a cute little shirt, pajamas, shoes, hat, etc.
- get them a cute little toy that sings. xD
- just go to toys R us or babies R us & find something cute(:
- a pillowpet is adorablee(;
O4. SiSTERS ♥
- sisters are fun to shop for, but they're a little more materialistic than moms, USUALLY, so i would go with buying something rather than making(;
- get them a really cute shirt from their favorite store.
- articles of clothing -- scarves, shirts, (jeans? sometimes that might be weird. xD), shoes, hats, sweaters // cardigans, pajamas, etc.
- perfumes // lotions.
- if you're really close & not on a budget, a bracelet from juicy couture would be really nice. they're a little less than $6O, & quite adorable(:
- an engraved necklace works, too. i'd say about $7O, ishh?
- gift cards to girly stores ;p
O5. BROTHERS ♥
- this is a pain in the neck for me. /:
- try baseball cards, a baseball hat, or something. sports equipment.
- sneakers? guys love them, IDK why, but they're a bit expensive.
- gift cards to game stores // shoe stores // sports stores work fine(:
- bake something nicee ♥
O6. FRiENDS ♥
- if you have lots of friends, it may be a little difficult.
- lotions & perfumes are great. (:
- articles of clothing (see list for sisters)
- stocking stuffers in a cute little stocking. (;
- gift cardss ♥
- for okay -- not really great friends, you can just hand out candy canes(:
- make a collage of pictures of you together. put in cute quotes ♥ (ie. best friends? psshh, more like SiSTERS, ♥)
O7. GUY FRiENDS // BOYFRiENDS ♥
- these are HARD. <|3
- a videogame?
- try to listen to what they wantt. ;p
- jerseys? shirts? sneakers?

- personalized gifts. (ie, photo albums, etc.)
- a batch of baked goods(:

O9. THE GENERAL POPULATiON ♥
