4 thoughtful Christmas gift ideas for those looking for a new hobby
Christmas is here. Along with all the fun and frolic, comes the pressure of gift buying. You can't just pick anything up from Walmart now, can you? Neither can you give the same gift that you've given in previous years. Nor can you give two of your friends the same thing.
Ughhh! There are so many complications in gift-giving. Why can't it be simpler?
Why can't picking out a thoughtful present for a loved one be as easy as grocery shopping in the supermarket? Just line up, pick up stuff, and come on out.
Well, not to brag, but we've come up with the perfect gift guide for you. And it's based on sound advice that's been passed on over the years (by Santa, maybe?).
The first rule to giving a thoughtful present is to know the person's interests inside out.
What do they like?
What don't they like?
What are their interests?
One way to capture all the answers to those questions in one gift is by giving them something based on their hobby.
A hobby-based gift doesn't just show how much you know them, it also shows how much you love and support their passions.
And if those gifts are eco-friendly and sustainable, you're just going to get extra brownie points.
Let's dive right in!
For the creative doodler
You've seen your friend draw little doodles on paper napkins while waiting for your order at a restaurant, haven't you? And she's got rough books filled with sketches back home.
Why not give her something that fits right in with her creative spirit? Something like our limited edition doodle journal.
Hardbacked and covered in gorgeous floral offcuts, this doodle journal is as unique as their talent. It's got luxurious cream paper inside with dotted, grid, and plain variations for their drawings. What's more, there are several hand drawn illustrations to jog their minds when facing a creative block. The illustrations have been made with natural soot-based ink by local artists. Moreover, there's a handy pocket at the back to store all their stationary.
For the explorer
Do you remember that friend that disappears for months without informing anyone? And then, out of the blue, you get a call from Vienna, only to realize they're on a backpacking trip across Europe. They're explorers, backpackers, travelers. Simply put, they love to experience new cultures in far-off lands.
