How to make a perfect Christmas surprise for your nearest and dearest?

  • Number one in our top-5 Secret Santa gift ideas list: local food and drinks

No matter what country you live in, if you want to share something authentic and personal with your family abroad, there’s a good old way of arranging a perfect Christmas surprise for your nearest and dearest by ordering a door-to-door delivery of some extraordinary and delicious food and drinks which you particularly like. Believe us: thinking about someone who has arranged a Christmas feast for them will bring smiles to their faces.

  • Number two: vintage and original design objects

If it’s not you who have chosen to move to another country, it’s only natural to suppose that the ones you love sometimes feel like aliens immersed in a different culture. When you send Christmas presents to your friends and family living overseas, you should always think of different ways to make them feel a little less homesick. When a person is struggling to adjust to foreign reality, some creative interior design objects, paintings, decorations and accessories can be really helpful for those who don’t manage to get settled and feel comfortable in their new surroundings.

  • Number three: something that symbolizes their old home (or your new home)

It may be a picture, a ceramic vase, a teddy bear or any other object that will make your parents or friends think about the place that has a special place in their hearts.

  • Number four: handmade gifts (Etsy style), garlands, Christmas wreaths

All these fancy items create magic and…the Christmas spirit.

When you decide to send Christmas presents to your friends and family living overseas, you always ask yourself what kind of items they will use all the time. The ones listed above definitely deserve their place in our top-5 Secret Santa gift ideas for your family abroad.

Of course, when it comes to arranging a perfect Christmas surprise for your nearest and dearest, nothing can compare to your unexpected arrival. Unfortunately, in some cases it’s impossible, but hopefully, social media make it easier for us to spend some good moments with the ones we love regardless of the distance.

As for the Christmas presents, at Eurosender, we can help you send them to your friends and family living overseas at the best possible price.

Given that December is traditionally one of the busiest months in terms of delivery, if you want your parents to receive their gifts on time, it’s good to plan the shipping a little ahead of the holidays for your parcel collection and delivery not to be postponed. Please, check the information about the courier services holiday schedule on our website. There’s one more thing we’d like to stress: some of the goods mentioned above are included on the list of restricted items, so there will be no shipping insurance for these types of products. If you need to ship such items, you need to choose the right packaging for your parcel. You can find useful packaging guides for various items in the Pack and Ship section on our website.

Send Christmas presents to your friends and family living overseas and have yourself a merry little Christmas! We wish you a wonderful winter holidays!
