Christmas might seem like a distant speck on the horizon, but it’s never too early to start finding the perfect gifts for family, friends or colleagues. Choosing wisely now means there’s no last-minute panic buying of presents nobody really wants. Here are some great gift ideas to put on your shopping list.
Paddington Bear Plush Toy
With a new Paddington Bear film set for release this November, kids will be craving all things Paddington this Christmas. A plush toy Paddington Bear that talks will go down a particular treat this Yuletide, and will be adored by kids of all ages.
Virtual Reality Headset
Gadget gifts always go down well, but if you’re looking for one gadget that’s sure to top anyone’s wish list, it’s a virtual reality headset. VR technology is bang on trend at the moment, and the Polaroid virtual reality headset, for use with smartphones, is one item that will get a resounding thumbs up.
Buying gifts for colleagues can be tricky. Practical items are useful, but injecting a sense of fun or interest means gifts don’t stray into the boring category. Desk pads are a good bet, but why not go for a vintage Ladybird desk pad to add a sense of nostalgia when making notes or writing down ideas?
Fun Salt and Pepper Shakers
Do you need to buy gifts for any foodie friends who have a great sense of humour? If so, Despicable Me 3 salt and pepper shakers are just the job. Incredibly practical, they also feature loveable Minion characters that are sure to make meal times a real delight.
Knitted Beanie Hat
When it’s cold outside this Christmas, friends or family will always greatly receive the gift of a hat. For those with a penchant for whisky, a Jack Daniel’s knitted beanie hat is sure to bring a smile to the face and warmth to the head.
If you weren’t already aware, unicorns are the latest love for all little girls. You’ll melt the heart of any young lady this Christmas by giving a unicorn themed gift. In particular, a sterling silver unicorn pendant necklace will become a much-treasured present.
The popularity of Star Wars knows no limits, so for young or old enthusiasts alike, there are plenty of themed gifts to choose from this Christmas. If you’re looking for something practical, a Star Wars bag, watch or t-shirt will always please, but Star Wars earrings, necklaces or cuff links will also gain approval from any fan.
Do you have a work mate who likes to wear loud colours? Ditch the drab presents this Christmas and give them something that will brighten up the office. A retro rainbow skinny tie will tick all the right boxes.

This brilliant gift lets you add 10 photos to light up pegs, with the option of including your own message.
