Here are the top Christmas gifts you can give this holiday to every member of your family and every type of friend you have.
1. Binge-watching Starter Pack
During this era, people are finding ways on how to enjoy things at the comfort of their own homes. Leisure activities and gatherings are done online through video conferencing. Even watching the latest movies are done online. Thus, a binge-watch starter pack is a great Christmas gift idea.

You can make things extra-special by sending them movie snacks and treats or a copy of some classic films you think they would love to watch again.
2. Skin Care Package
This gift idea is perfect for your girlfriend, mum, or sister. You can look up online what are the best skin care products in the market today.
This is one of the easier gifts to purchase because most skin care products are already sold in packages for overall face and body care.
3. Set of Scented Candles
Recently, scented candles are getting on trend again. People are stuck at home and they are looking for things that can improve their stay.
Scented candles are perfect gifts for your friends and family that are beautifying their homes. There are tons of available scents online and you can easily purchase one and send them.
4. Bottle of Wine
Who will turn down a bottle of wine especially during Christmas?
A bottle of wine is another go-to gift idea during the holiday season and it never gets old. You can send this gift item to colleagues, or your boss as a sign of appreciation.
5. Chocolate Box/Hamper
If you think sending out bottles of wine to family and friends is not enough, why not add a box of chocolate or a chocolate hamper? Great quality chocolate plus a bottle of wine is a great combo especially during Christmas.
Another good thing about chocolate is it can be enjoyed by all ages. Whether you give it to a 10-year-old or a 50-year-old, they will appreciate it.
Today, many chocolate makers produce chocolate mixed with unique flavours. There are chocolates with nuts, biscuits, and other products that add to its texture. Others add spices which makes the treat more interesting.
Moreover, most Christmas chocolate gifts come in boxes or sets which makes it more suitable for the season. Just add a little message and you have a special gift to send.
6. Personalised Items
This list will never be complete without some personalised items. Whether it is a jewelry, food item, or a simple Christmas card you personally made and wrote, it is already a good Christmas gift idea.
7. Digital Prints
Similar to scented candles, digital prints are also a great gift for those who are into home improvement projects.
You can send some digital prints to creative friends and family, who you think would love some additional Instagramable items inside their homes.
8. Indoor Plants
Indoor plants also fall under the home beautification category. If your grandma or mum are into plants, this is the best gift you can give. It will keep them occupied inside their homes.
Also, this is a great gift for friends and family that recently moved into a new place or opened a new business.
9. Art Supplies

Goodies meaning packed with candies, treats, chocolates, Christmas stickers, or anything you can think of that reminds you of Christmas.
This can be a DIY project but there are some businesses that offer packages and personalized gift boxes. You just have to look for them online.
Christmas 2020 is definitely different. The world is still facing a health treat and no one knows until when, however, the spirit of the season lives on.
