7 Fantastic Xmas Presents You Can Buy Today Without Leaving The House

Alana Laverty

Does the thought of traipsing into town to buy Christmas presents absolutely revolt you? 

We don’t blame you. It’s a nightmare out there. 

Fear not though, these seven gifts can be purchased from the comfort of your bed – easy peasy – and anyone would love ’em. 

1. Spotify Premium 

For the music lover in your life, this is the gift we would buy ourselves, if we could afford it. Even though it is only €0.99 for three months at the moment! 

Also, anything with the word ‘premium’ in the name is going to make you feel a bit glam. 

Give the gift of music this Christmas.

2. A helicopter ride with a glass of prosecco in hand 

Got a friend with serious notions?

Don’t we alllll. 

Well, look no further.

3. Cheap-ass flights 

What better gift than the gift of travel? 

Airlines like Ryanair, Aer Lingus, EasyJet and WOW air are always reliable for some inexpensive, last-minute flights. Or else take a look at SkyScanner. 

A fantastic Christmas present!

4. A whopper meal in a spot they haven’t tried yet 

Have your foodie friends always been dying to hit up a certain restaurant but never got the chance? Now they do, cause you’re a cracking mate.  

Call up, make a reservation and tell your friend the meal is on you. Go on. 

Here’s some inspo for ya.

5. Tickets 

These go across the board. Surprise your friend with an experience rather than a gift. 

Take a look at Eventbrite or Ticketmaster for some inspiration.

6. A Netflix subscription  

The movie buff in your life will worship you for supplying their fix.

7. A weekend getaway 

And, no, that doesn’t mean you have to go far. Check out spots just outside of Dublin like Powerscourt or The K Club. 

Or rent out an Airbnb on the coast somewhere for cheap and bask yourself in Ireland for a bit.

Go forth and be a lazy but considerate git.
