Christmas is just around the corner and choosing a gift that both partners will appreciate and get use of can prove rather tricky. If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect present, these age specific ideas are a great start.

The Golden Oldies

After years providing endless love and care, it is always nice to return the favour by spoiling your parents or grandparents. A relaxing hotel break or getaway will be the most magical surprise this Christmas. Travel dates will be more flexible for those who are enjoying retired life, so keep this in mind when researching potential breaks. Many of the luxury hotels throughout Ireland have some fantastic midweek package offers available which an evening meal.

The New Parents

The arrival of a new addition to the family can be both a joyful and stressful period for first-time parents. Settling into a new routine of night feeds is exhausting, especially if baby is a light sleeper. Rest and relaxation will now be a distant luxury for this pair. A couple’s spa break experience will be the perfect way for mom and dad to reconnect and unwind together. An indulgent massage followed by a heavenly stint in the relaxation room will go down a real treat.

The Newlyweds

Celebrating your first festive season as a newly-married couple is truly exciting and romantic. A sentimental gift idea is required in order to mark such a celebratory occasion. A meal voucher for the hotel restaurant at their wedding venue is sure to conjure up some treasured memories. Or if you’re searching for something more meaningful, a canvas print of a sound-wave from the couple’s first dance song is a hugely popular purchase for newlyweds on Etsy.com.

The Expats

A hamper full of delicious snacks from the homeland will be a godsend over the holiday season for couples living abroad. Imagine how excited they will be to wake up to a good mug of hearty Irish tea on Christmas morning! There’s no taste like home.

The Health Nuts
