Art supply gifts
For all you budding artists out there, this season could be a great time to stock up on supplies. Why not pop an acrylic paint set or new brush set into your wish list. Perhaps you’ve run out of large paper, or you fancy having a go at air drying clay modeling. Art supplies make perfect gifts, and they’re great fun to give and receive.
Sporty people might fancy a new sports top or even a pair of sneakers. As you’re choosing the style and size, anyone buying you the gift is guaranteed to get it right. Tennis enthusiasts always need new balls. And golfers often need to top up their golf balls too. Other gifts for the season can include sports bags or even wearable tech. Fitness bands are very popular, especially those that connect to your smartphone. Pop them in your wish list and see if anyone picks them for you! It could be the start of a new fitness program for you.
Classes as a gift
Of course, not everybody likes to shop for gifts from a wish list. Instead, you might need to drop casually hints about what you would like! Have you ever considered classes for a gift? Dance classes, Yoga classes, painting classes and DIY classes are all quite popular right now. Some local adult education centers start classes in the New Year and sell taster sessions for gifts.
Cooking and baking hobby
If you love to cook, and you’re always receiving kitchen items for Christmas, why not take it more seriously? Cooking and baking are great hobbies. Perhaps the best thing about it is the opportunity to make money. You might bake cupcakes to raise money for a good cause. Or you could even get certificated to go into a catering business. As a new hobby, you could always invite your friends over to sample your projects.
Even if you usually receive gifts you’re not that keen on, you can turn them into a new hobby. Have you ever tried blogging? Writing reviews and thoughts about products you receive as Christmas gifts can open up a new hobby for you. Beauty and bath product reviews are particularly good reading online. Who knows? That unwanted gift pack could be the start of something fun and new to do for the New Year.
