2020 has been a year unlike any other, and as a result, the holiday season will no doubt feel more important and sentimental than in years gone by. Though we may not get to spend as much time as we’d have liked with loved ones this year, we can still give them meaningful and thoughtful gifts. Below, we’ve rounded up some amazing gifts to give to your daughter…
Cash towards a house deposit
If your daughter is saving for her own house, now could be the ideal opportunity to assess your own finances and offer her some support. Whether you can spare $100 or $5,000, the gift of a cash donation towards a house deposit will go a long way, and perhaps be more meaningful than a box of candles or some chocolates. If she’s already on the property ladder you could offer to pay towards her mortgage for three months or pay to have her living room renovated. Our homes have never been more important, so help her make the investment.
A bespoke piece of jewelry
Jewelry is the gift that keeps on giving, a unique and thoughtful gift that will last a lifetime. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary that pays tribute to your Irish heritage, then you might want to consider a Claddagh ring. Such rings feature a heart, a crown, and a pair of hands, which represents love, friendship, and loyalty respectively. Treat her to a ring that she will wear for years to come, and she’ll think of you every time she looks at it. True love!
Pass down a family heirloom
Perhaps you’re holding onto an important family heirloom that you could pass down to your daughter? Whether it’s a piece of jewelry or artwork, decide whether now is the right time to hand it over and be sure to stress its importance in your family. Your daughter will wear it or display it pride of place in her own home, and then pass it onto her children in years to come when she’s ready to do so. This’ll serve as an emotional reminder of how short life really is.
Transform her garden with a greenhouse
As we’ve already touched upon, our homes are more important than ever right now. If your daughter’s garden is looking worse for wear, or you want to encourage her to spend some more time in the great outdoors, you could buy her a greenhouse so she can grow plants like tomatoes and berries. Over the years, her ambitions will evolve and she may even bake you and your husband a pie to thank you, with delicious berries she’s grown from scratch!
Build her a home spa hamper
Finally, consider building a hamper full of your daughter’s favorite cosmetics products. In our fast-paced world, it’s hard to find the time to sit down and pamper yourself, so buying her the ingredients she needs for a relaxing night soaking in the bath will work wonders. From face masks and bath bombs to lotions and potions, you can build a hamper around your budget.
