Do not lose your heart and get some surprise gifts for your family members delivered at their doorstep.

Here are some innovative ways to surprise your family members even if you are miles away during Christmas.

Say It With Chocolates

Nothing works like chocolate.

To add to her pleasure, send her chocolates in different flavors. This will not only reduce her workload but also help her in serving guests a variety of sweets. Do avoid sending liquor-flavor chocolate as it goes a bit out of sync with the religious mood.

You can also send her chocolate flavored local Indian sweets adding more traditional variety to her layout.

Say It With Soft Toys

Do not get hassled over choosing gift options for cousins. Soft toys are perennial favorites with girls. Gift your younger cousins some cute soft toys of animated cartoon characters.

Cartoon characters like Noddy, Pinochio et al are quite popular. There is also a wide array of cartoon inspired pillows and cushions.

Go For Ethnic Indian Wear

Ethnic wear is all time hit when it comes to gifting options on festivals. Christmas is one time of the year when family members prefer to pray together. Ethnic wear suits the mood the most.

Say It In A Subtle Manner

If your plans to meet your future mother-in-law this Christmas went kaput due to your job, send her a gift instead. Unstitched salwar kameez for popular designs such as anarkali, angarakha et al make for great gifts as well.

Embellishment designs are equally enchanting with options in sequin, zari, lace, embroidery, crochet work. For first timers it is advisable to go for online shopping as it also provides ample description about each fabric and design.

In case of physical shopping ask someone experienced to accompany you to a reliable shop. Sometimes retail shops have self-styled prices and unsuspecting customers get duped. They end up paying extra bucks for low quality material.

Gifts With A Twist

While selecting gifts for Gen N relatives, opt for fusions. Instead of gifting them something purely traditional, opt for tunic tops. Tunic tops with embroidered and sequin work fulfills the requirement beautifully. One can wear it during formal ceremonies as well as on casual occasions.
