Your Gift Ideas for the Christmas Season

Your Gift Ideas for the Christmas Season

If you’re in the middle of planning out your holiday shopping, you’ve come to the right place! Christmas is supposed to be the season when everything is merry and bright, but let's face it… Sometimes, it can be one of the most stressful times of the year. 

Between shopping for holiday gifts, cooking family potluck dinners and planning cocktail events in between, there always seems to be so much to do in so little time, especially when it comes to shopping for gifts that are unique and thoughtful.

That’s why Bread and Butter Basket Company is here to help you out with a few popular gift ideas that are perfect for the holiday season! So without further adieu, let’s get into it!


Weighted Blanket.

Give them the gift of comfort! Weighted blankets are all the rage right now, and for good reason! Not only are they comfortable, but the pressure of weighted blankets also puts your autonomic nervous system into “rest” mode, reducing some of the symptoms of anxiety, such as a quickened heart rate or breathing. This can provide an overall sense of calm, and ultimate relaxation to your gift recipient.

Gift Basket.

This one might be the perfect suggestion on the list, and we’re not biased when we say that! Gift baskets are full of surprises that just one or many can enjoy! They’re versatile, customizable, affordable and thoughtful, and can contain whatever you want! Suitable for those who love sweet treats that are Baked With Love or savoury eats like a Christmas Charcuterie Board, with Bread and Butter Basket Company, your gift recipient will receive the gift of deliciousness with a personalized unique and beautifully arranged gift basket that they’ll adore. 

Hot Chocolate Bombs.

Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Perfect for the time of year, hot chocolate bombs are a delicious treat that’s both fun and unique. These tasty gifts are hollow chocolate spheres that are filled with dry hot chocolate mix and marshmallows. Your gift recipient can place their hot chocolate bomb into their favourite mug, pour hot milk over top of it, and watch it “explode” into a delicious cup of hot chocolate! To keep things inexpensive, you can even make this one yourself!


Personalized Photo Frame.

As a timeless, flexible, fully customizable choice, picture frames can be your go-to gift this year. Not only are custom picture frames a simple and stress-free gift option, but you also have the ability to make them as personal as you’d like. Choosing photos of shared experiences and precious moments to frame allows the recipient of your gift to look back on the memories you made together.


Paint Night Experience.

Paint night has become super popular in the last couple of years, and rightfully so! It’s a fun and creative way to hang out with your loved ones, and provide a bonding experience through the art of painting. You get to go to a local bar, cafe or to a painting studio, and create a masterpiece with the guidance of an instructor! Paint night events happen frequently in the greater Edmonton area, so with a bit of research, uncovering tickets to this artistic experience might be just the thing to get you on the nice list! 


Custom Christmas Ornament.

Come on, we’ve all seen those adorable customizable ornament kiosks in the mall! These seasonal trinkets make excellent gifts that lets your gift recipient know that you were thinking of them. If the mall kiosk ornaments aren't on your shopping list, get creative! Take a trip to your local craft store to collect supplies to make a home made ornament is a great idea too! Personalizing an ornament with a name, milestone, message, or year makes it more meaningful because they know it was sentimentally picked out or crafted, especially for them!


Your present isn't the only one they’ll receive this holiday season, so make sure you (and your gift) find a way to stand out this year with a Bread and Butter Gift Basket! Surprise your loved ones with one of our unique gift baskets, and before you know it, you’ll be known as the season's most creative gift giver! Start ordering today!
