Finish your holiday list in NO time with this legendary list of Christmas gifts for uncles.
Who else includes their uncles on their Christmas shopping list? *raises hand*
I am blessed to have multiple uncles that I love to the moon and back, but shopping for them can be tough.
Can you relate?
If so, let’s remove the stress and put the FUN back into holiday shopping today with this epic list of Uncle gifts.
How to Choose the Perfect Christmas Gift for Your Uncle
If you really want to put some thought into your uncle’s gift this year, sit down and make a list of his favorite hobbies, foods, interests, and more.
It will make gift-buying sooo much easier, trust me.
If you are struggling, here are a few things to consider to make this brainstorm easier-
What Are His Favorite Hobbies?
Does your uncle love golf? Has he been bit by the travel bug? Does he love a good craft beer?
It’s important to think about his hobbies and interests before shopping. It gives you a starting point and ensures you don’t get something that’ll wind up in the trash. (Hey, it happens).
For instance, if your uncle loves hunting and fishing, avoid moisturizers and hair care gift sets.
If he loves football, don’t get him baseball tickets.
That sort of thing.
Think About Things He Wouldn’t Buy for Himself
This is the best kind of gift in my humble opinion.
They’re the ones you open and think “oh yeah, I NEED this!” Without even saying anything, it shows the recipient that you really know them well and that you put some thought into this.
So when shopping for a Christmas present for your uncle, think of something that he’ll enjoy yet wouldn’t necessarily buy for himself.
Include Something That Will Make Him Laugh
Funny gifts and gag gifts can be fun and memorable.
Tread carefully though. You definitely want to keep his special type of humor in mind!
If he has a wild sense of humor, silly jokes and gag gifts are welcomed.
But if he is more strait-laced, you may want to keep things more classic, subdued and witty.
Consider a Gift He Will Remember You For
A surprising or unexpected gift can be one of the most memorable – the kind you’ll still be talking about 5 years down the road.
Personalized gifts fit the bill. Whether homemade, engraved, or custom-crafted, these types of gifts go the extra mile.
