Non-Conventional Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is officially less than a month away and even though, year after year we keep saying that we will start Christmas shopping early, the same thing always happens time and time again – we leave it till the last minute in the hope that the perfect gift for each person on our list materialises in front of us in a festively decorated shop window.

Also, we try to wreck our brains to make sure we don’t gift the same things as last year or the years before. Fret not, for here I have some unconventional Christmas gifts that will surely impress your nearest and dearest ;)

For starters, one for the men in your life - KIR ROYAL is a little gem in Valletta that you should definitely check out. From the little details that complete an outfit such as pocket squares, ties and related accessories, to that perfect shirt, for the style-conscious male, you’re bound to find something to tick some gifts off your list. Best of all, everything is available in very limited quantities to maintain exclusivity. Oh and for the ones who have everything? KIR ROYAL also offers image consultation services!

We all know that women love shoes right? And what’s better than a personalised pair of shoes by Desirée that will have in your lady’s good books for many Christmases to come? Desirée will even hand paint designs on bags and even cushions to beautify your home if you so desire ;)

Another one for the ladies. Silk creations are always appreciated, especially when they are one-off pieces hand-painted by Rosita Silk Sense. In short, a silk scarf will definitely earn you tonnes of brownie points.

A new gift concept comes in the form of artisanal tea thanks to Tettiera which is the brain child of cousins Joanna Micallef Farrugia and Diana Mifsud. This is definitely the gift for any tea lover and with the Maltese tiles packaging designed by Stephanie Borg, it can definitely be re-purposed and loved for years to come.

Stephen Cordina Aroma & Therapy is now an established name in the industry and his many perfumes and scents are a great gift idea for home lovers or people who are moving houses. They even have a bath & body range to complement the home range. I especially love the linen sprays, candles and diffusers.

A gift from Charles & Ron can never be a wrong choice. If clothes shopping is not your thing, the formidable duo have come up with a comprehensive range of small leather goods to suit all budgets. Whether it's their iconic handbags or coasters or belts, you are bound to make a very good impression.

Lastly, we know that Christmas time is all about spending time with our nearest and dearest and it probably all happens over an elaborate dinner which would have taken the better part of the day to prepare. Why not gift a voucher from Chef Matt Vella instead? Chef Vella will come over and prepare a delectable meal to your tastes as well as set up the table for you!
