Top 5 Hottest Christmas Gift Ideas in 2023

Always stuck for Christmas gift ideas for friends or family who are impossible to buy for? Whether it’s your sister who buys whatever she wants all year round, your Dad who says he doesn’t want anything or your in-laws who already have everything, we all have at least one person (if not more!) who stumps us when it comes to Christmas gift ideas.

Even if they tell you Christmas gifts are not necessary or give zero helpful hints, you still want to give a gift you know they’ll like. You want your Christmas gift to be thoughtful and don’t want it to go to waste or just be another materialistic thing they don’t use. Plus, there’s nothing like that feeling of a nailing a Christmas gift, and even more so when they’re hard to buy for.

1. Experiences

The number one hottest Christmas gift ideas this year are experiences. This type of gift is becoming more and more popular and it’s easy to see why. Experiences are just the thing if you want a Christmas present they’ll remember -from relaxing hot tub experiences to thrilling canyoning in breath-taking locations. Giving adventures and excitement as a gift is scientifically proven to make them happier. Plus they’re way better than receiving more things you don’t need. Experience gifts are personal, thoughtful, and you can never have too many. Instead of giving a material possession, you’re giving a Christmas gift that is sure to last a lifetime in memories. What do you remember more, that box of chocolates you got last Christmas or that time you went ziplining? Exactly!

5. A class to learn something new

Learning new things makes people feel good and there are so many options. So, if they’re the sort of person who’s always keen to try something new, then a course or class of some sort is a great Christmas gift idea. If they’re a foodie maybe cake decorating classes, cheese making or a beer brewing experience. If they’d like to learn a new skill you could gift a class to learn a musical instrument or photography. Or maybe they’d be keen for something more physical like dancing, boxing or a rock-climbing class? They may even be keen to try their hand at woodwork, flower arranging or painting.
