Last year you probably swore to be more organised but before you know it Christmas will be upon us. (Sorry!)
Since we jumped into October, you can’t miss the signs that the season of giving and glitter is only a few weeks away. Supermarkets already have mince pies on and beauty gift packs the shelves and it’s not even Halloween!
That being said, we all want to avoid that last minute panicked dash that just results in buying presents “that will do” rather than something that speaks of our love and appreciation for a person.
A place to start is making a list of the hobbies and interests of the person at hand.
We’ve pooled our Christmas organisers from the last few years come up with some ideas that may spark some inspiration.

Gifts for Busy Mums - Coming soon...
Gifts for Couples - Coming soon...
And don’t forget, our Oh So clever team have come up with a few Christmas products that might help. Check out our gift tags and our 5 year Christmas organiser and never be stuck for a recipe or present again.
1. Busy B Couples Calendar 2015
Ok, so we may be a little biased, but our Busy B Couples Calendar for 2015 is a great (and very practical!) gift for any couple. You can buy it on the Busy B website here.
2. Penguins in Love!
We love quirky prints here in the Busy B office and this Penguin design, which can be personalised with couple’s names, is such a sweet gift for any couple that you know. You can find it at Not on the High Street.
3. Couples Date Jar
Why not inspire a couple you know to become their very own version of Romeo & Juliet, Bridget Jones & Mark Darcy…or Marge & Homer? A “Date Jar” is a great gift…and even better, you can create it yourself!
So, what will you need?
- Find an empty jar at home (an old jam jar with a gold lid would be perfect!)
- Some nice paper to write on
- A nice pen
- A ribbon to tie around the jar
- A list of 10+ date ideas. You could be as romantic or “fun” as you like – one could be “Try a restaurant you haven’t been to before” or “Do an outdoor water sport together!”
- A beautiful label to “name” your jar (our Sticky Labels are a great option!)
If you’ve not got the time to make one from scratch, you’ll find a readymade jar on The Green Gables website priced £12.50.
4. TV heaven!
The winter nights are well and truly here…the oh so perfect time to stay in and start watching some of entertainments best shows that you’ve missed over the past year. This list, even though it is refers to 2013, will help you to find the perfect box set for your chosen couple.
5. Pair of mugs!
Everybody loves a cuppa, so why not gift these cute personalised mugs to your favourite couple? You’ll find these at The Gift Experience.
6. Dinner’s on Us!
Although gift vouchers can sometimes feel like the easy option, we’re sure most couples would love to be treated to a romantic dinner! Why not pick up some vouchers for their favourite restaurant?
7. Camping in Style!
Do you know a couple who love camping or going to festivals? There’s no mistaking which camping chair is theirs with this nifty personalised joint camping chair! 8. YUMMY!
We challenge you to find any couple who wouldn’t enjoy this delicious gift…the ultimate chocolate lovers sharing platter! It even has some savoury inclusions! Is anyone else hungry all of a sudden? We’re off to Hotel Chocolat to buy this now!
9. Picture this!
This photo block we found on Bouf.com is a really unique way to display a couples’ memorable photos at home. Gift it with the photos included or leave it for the happy couple to fill in!
10. Double Christmas Delight
Back on trend now for another year is the Christmas jumper! Fun and fashionable, why not get a couple you know a matching set? Or you could get them an equally fashionable novelty version! We’re not sure which option we like best?
