With the festive season upon us and what can be the headache of gift buying, we wanted to help with some suggestions for those hard to buy for loved ones. We've all got them, Charlotte's is her Mum who can, of course, take her pick of bags. Mine is my Father! At 85 when I ask him what he would like for Christmas his answer is always "I don't need anything"!
So here are just a few ideas that we hope may help inspire you and make what can become a stressful time a little easier.
GIFTS FOR MEN
As I mentioned above, my difficult to buy for man is my Father! I know he really doesn't want anything new and parents never want us spending lots, do they? So this year I have had a lightbulb moment! My dad maybe 85 years old, but he still goes out walking his dog twice a day and goes all over the country caravanning during the Summer months. What could he possibly use in the Mia Tui range you may be thinking .... Well this year, I am buying him an Oxford folding Backpack for when he goes out walking at home or on holiday, a Gem toiletry bag to keep his iPad cable (yes he has an iPad and uses it) and phone charger in when he is off on his hols and a Stainless Steel Water Bottle for taking when he walks.
As well as these great smaller gifts that are really handy to have, the Sydney backpack makes a great gift for men who commute to work or need a bag for the Gym. Team this with a glasses case and Gem organiser, plain Winter scarf in Black or Grey and you have got a great gift set!
GIFTS FOR TEENS
In some cases, teens can be even harder to buy for than men! Backpacks are very on-trend at the moment for teens and we haven't let this go unnoticed! Jess and the more recent addition the Emily backpack are a great size for teens as well as adults. Or maybe if your teen is looking for a school bag they may like the Maya backpack or Zoe shoulder bag.
As well as bags, we have some great winter scarves which you won't go wrong with as they may never want to wear a coat but give them a scarf and they are happy! Add in a Coin Purse, Beau Makeup bag. bracelet and glasses case and Hey Presto there's a fab collection of gifts right there.
We do a Secret Santa at Mia Tui HQ, a budget is set and then it's just having to come up with ideas to suit your recipient! Not always easy is it?
Have a look at our Stocking Fillers Collection, we have put together some really great little gift ideas that work well when on a strict budget. From Sue folding shoppers (everyone needs one of these in their life surely?) to the really handy Alex folding travel bag, or Lily clutch/crossbody we really think you will find that perfect gift.
GIFTS FOR HER
We couldn't ignore gifts for us in this little roundup, could we!
I mentioned at the start that Charlotte finds it hard to buy for her Mum, as of course she can pick and choose from the range. But this year Charlotte is going to be wrapping her namesake bag up for her as she knows her Mum loves the fact that the Charlotte's 2 different styles of the strap give it a really versatile look for all occasions, day or evening.
Why not send your wish list to a loved one who may be in need of some inspiration on what to buy you? We had requests for a wish list and so Charlotte has added this to the website. You may be longing for a travel bag for next year's holiday or would love to find one of our newly launched Rebecca bundles under your tree this year.
There are some great offers on the website to help with your gift-buying this Christmas, such as the Samantha with 20% off or the Annabelle bundle giving a FREE Megan worth £26.50!
Don't forget you can also purchase Gift vouchers on the website that are sent via email, they are available in denominations of £10, £25, £50 and £100.
We really hope this post may help with a little inspiration this Christmas. But whatever you buy or receive this year we wish you a joyous time with family and friends.
