-This post is in collaboration-

Making sure you’ve got all of your bases covered when it comes to Christmas gift-giving can be stressful. The last thing you want to do is forget about somebody important and experience the awkward one-sided gift exchange. While we can’t help you with that level of forgetfulness, we can offer you some tips on buying gifts for your Bristolian friends and visitors to this fine location. Here, we’ve made a list of 4 of the best gift ideas this Christmas time, so that you can be sure to find something for even the most complicated folks.

Bristol Experiences
Buying an experience for someone you care about is becoming a much more popular choice when it comes to gift-giving. The problem today is that products are so incredibly accessible now, and unless you’re buying something obscure or something from an independent seller, the chances are they’ve already seen it, bought it or told someone else that they want it. 

Instead, treat someone to a day or weekend of memories. This can be anything from food and drink experiences, sporting and active experiences like hot air balloon flying and go-karting, to wildlife experiences or classes and workshops. There are so many things you can do in Bristol—the city has so many sights and activities on offer. It would be a shame to not find some amazing things to do to truly experience what Bristol has to offer.

Gift Hampers
If you’re looking to get something to show your appreciation to someone but are unsure what you could possibly buy them, especially if they’re the type of person that already has everything. There are some great ideas however that can really help you to show how much someone means to you, without helping to fill their home with unwanted clutter. 

Christmas gift hampers are a great example of this, and they can contain anything like foods, confectionery, alcohol, beauty products, or a mixture of all of these, among other things. Getting a box of gifts for someone such as a Bristol Hamper from Box Local is sure to put a smile on their face. Just make sure you have a good think about what they’ll enjoy, as there are many different things to choose from, and you can even build your own hamper.

Local Artisanal Gifts
Bristol is home to some amazing independent shops and crafters, including talented brewers and exquisite chocolatiers. Not only could it be worth buying something that has been made in Bristol itself, but it might also even be a good idea to search for gift cards to encourage your giftee to visit these wonderful local professionals. Some of these can be coupled with some great Bristol experiences too, whereby your gift can include a day of learning how to make some of these amazing items to take home later on.

Traditional Glassware
As a local, you’ll probably be well aware that Bristol is famous for its beautiful blue glass products. These gorgeous items, from vases to jugs and tumblers, date back around 3 centuries and are a perfect way to give someone a gift that reminds them of the time they spent in this wonderful city. Whether you choose to buy them something practical like kitchenware or tableware, or just something that serves as an ornament, the rich, stunningly deep blue of these iconic items are sure to wow them.
