For those with winter birthdays, celebrating in style can sometimes be a little difficult as it’s not as simple as hosting an outside BBQ, a garden rendezvous with canapes if you’re pushing the boat out, or enjoying long hazy summer evenings at the beach. For those with winter birthdays, it’s important to focus on keeping cosy, well-nourished, and enjoying turning another year older.
If you’re searching for a thoughtful and luxurious gift to give to someone with a winter birthday, then the following guide should put you in good stead for finding the perfect gift for that special someone.
Cosy nights in
Chilly nights call for cosiness and staying warm inside, so with this in mind, opt for gifts that the receiver will be able to make good use of as the temperature drops. Think indulgent woolen blankets, throws, and cushions for snuggling down in front of the fire, or the tv.
As well as this, consider buying luxury scented candles, warming hot water bottles by a British designer, a new tasteful set of china mugs and coffee cup sets, a new and improved coffee machine on their current one, a memory foam pillow to aid sleep, and decadent room sprays.
Flowers and plants
Luxury is largely about comfort and feeling relaxed and taken care of. When winter takes hold, and the mornings are largely frozen and there’s frost on the ground, it can make the inside of the home feel a little gloomy and dark.
One way to brighten up the house and add cheer is to bring the outside in and decorate with small plants such a lemon tree, a pear tree, and flowers too. Consider sending your loved one a large and over-spilling bouquet of flowers that feature deep red colours, and winter greens such as holly and ivy.
Their favourite tipple
More often than not, most people will refrain from buying luxury for themselves, so when someone else does, it feels extra special and heart-warming. If you know the favourite tipple of the person you’re buying for, then why not seek out a fine bottle of a much-loved wine or whisky of theirs? You might also enjoy shopping for new glassware, a decanter, carafe, tumblers, or cocktail glasses.
The cold weather has a habit of drying out even the most hydrated skin, winter is harsh on the skin, and can spell chapped lips, dry and brittle hands and nails, and well as eczema flare-ups. Anyone who takes care of themselves and likes to stay as healthy as possible during the colder months will appreciate the gift of wonderfully moisturising creams and lotions.
Search online for comforting scents such as sandalwood, lavender, pine, and jasmine.
When there’s a chill in the air, and you’ve just about had enough of having to wear a coat, several underlayers, a scarf, hat, and gloves, the thought of relaxing in a heated swimming pool, a sauna, and a hot stone massage provide utter bliss.
If you know you have someone with a winter birthday to buy for, then seriously consider booking them in for a luxurious and relaxing spa experience for either the two of you, or for them and their partner, close friend, or family member.
