With Christmas just around the corner, you will be looking forward to hanging up the festive
decorations, stocking the cupboards with tasty winter snacks and filling your diary with celebratory
parties and events. However, there is one Christmas activity that many dread – choosing which
presents to buy family members and friends.
Christmas shopping is known for being a bit of a headache, especially if you leave it till the last
minute. Dredging through the high street crowds in icy weather, desperately clutching onto the
nearest gift set is not an experience that many enjoy. However, if you want to step away from the
usual perfume and chocolates and treat your loved ones to something a little bit special, I Need
Pampering has all the answers to help you choose the perfect present.
Presents for mum
It is always nice to surprise your mum with something special. But if she doesn’t need yet
another piece of jewellery and still has plenty of her favourite skincare and perfume left, thinking of
new ideas can be tricky.

presents for mums. The pampering gifts and afternoon tea gifts offer mums the rest and
relaxation that they so deserve, while family photos provide them with a memento that they can
If you are looking to spend some quality time with your sister or sister-in-law, a spa day for two
can be perfect. Not only do you get to treat her to a pampering session, but also get to catch up
on all the latest gossip and goings on together. Makeover and photo shoot days are also popular
presents for teenage and young sisters. The trendy makeup and hairstyles, flashing lights and
portfolio of photos give them a taste of the high life as they get to feel like a celebrity for the day.
For the men in your life
As dads, brothers and partners can be tricky to buy for, you may be left despairing well into
the festive season. Think about treating them to an activity such as a driving day, sky dive and
paintballing session, as these action-packed gifts are something a little bit different that will really
get their adrenaline going.
With plenty of gift ideas under your belt, Christmas 2012 will now hopefully be a stress-free
affair as you can enjoy a pleasant festive shopping experience, without having to worry any longer
about finding the perfect present.
