2016 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS for Busy Millennials


Hello, hello!

I can feel the Christmas spirit all around! In just a week, we will be celebrating the most wonderful time of the year. That also means we are supposed to be ready with our gifts, aren’t we?

However, if you are as busy as me and you ran out of ideas for this year, this blog post is for you.

In this millennial era, time is always running out and we have a lot of stuff to do but we can’t shrug off the holiday season! It’s always important to go back to your roots and enjoy the festivity like your 8-year old self again.

Hence, I made a list of gift ideas that may help you make your loved ones feel extra-special.

Gifts for Him and Her but mostly for her… (Ladies, we got this!)

I do believe that everyone adores shoes – and I assume ALL kinds of shoes. But because I am a sneaks-type-of-girl, I rarely wear heels so I have nothing to offer you but this pair of super comfy sneakers from NEW BALANCE. I wore it all day during my weekend shenanigans and I can attest that it felt easy and comfortable.

Okay… I am not a fan of make-up simply because I can’t paint my face right. BUT I love anything related to skin care! I love moisturizers and lotions and hand creams. (Fun fact: I do not leave the house or go to sleep without applying lotion.)

So when RITUALS COSMETICS GCC gave me an opportunity, I went straight to their organic skin care products. I LOVE how it feels and smells! And I’m pretty sure all you, girls, will love it as well! Tip: THEY HAVE A BOX SET EXCLUSIVELY THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON!!! Grab it!

For some reasons, I can see every woman having a relaxing time before going to bed. And so these candles and scented sticks from RITUALS GCC are UH-mazing! I light them up almost every night and I can feel the winter-y vibe in my bed room! Plus look at how classy and simple these look like. The best gift especially for this season.

Anything-TYPO is a perfect gift!!! You can never go wrong with this one. Typo is a one-stop shop for all your artsy friends! Tired of ol’ plain mugs?! Go get them something quirky…or better yet, something personalized! Statement pillows are cool, too! Add some crafts and viola ~ an instant gift!

I recently received a wireless earphones from Sudio Sweden and I fell in love with its quality. Superb sound! So I guess, this makes a perfect gift to all music lovers out there! You can also avail a 15% discount with my code: ABEER15


Probably a “pricey” gift but who cares!? It’s that special time to give the best of the best!!! Go for a classic DANIEL WELLINGTON watch! Need I say more? It’s classy, trendy and you can avail a 15% discount with code: lookingDW and if you’re from UAE, you can avail a 25% off when you buy a watch + a strap/cuff with the code: UAE  *lol guys, that’s how we advertise jk*

But seriously, it’s my go-to watch and I’m never disappointed! FREE WORLD WIDE SHIPPING + gift wrapping and orders arrive on time – 5 days to be exact!

Well…last but definitely not the least: BOOKS. What am I here for?! It’s that one *or more* treasure that you can give to your friends. Give them the right book and you have the power to change their lives forever.

What books, you ask? Here are some books that I have given as gifts to my friends in the past:

  • It’s Not How Good You Are It’s How Good You Want To Be by Paul Arden
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • Very Good Lives by JK Rowling
  • Twenty Love Poems by Pablo Neruda
  • Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
  • Looking For Alaska by John Green
  • Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur (I am thinking of giving this book to my friend this year)

Bonus gift for book lovers: BOOK MERCH!!! Over the course of two years on #bookstagram, I noticed that book merchandise IS THE DEAL. Bookish candles, necklace, cuff, subscription boxes, Pottermore e-books, Harry Potter related, bookish scarves and socks and bags and shirts… ALL THESE AMAZING THINGS are worth it! However, I am quite sure that these items won’t arrive on Christmas Eve, but if you want to extend your gift-giving ceremonies after the 25th, please, get one of these! Here are some online stores:


There you go! I do hope that you got some inspirations from my list. But what are YOUR gift ideas? Anything to add? Let me know in the comment section, please.

Enjoy shopping! But remember that whatever you give, no matter how small or big, if you are sincere then you are doing it right.

May the spirit of Christmas and the joy of giving be with you all! 😉
