Love, Wrapped Up: Gift Ideas for A Less-Than Typical Holiday Season

In the absence of each other, thoughtful gifts are sure to bring some cheer!

Regardless of whether we've spent significantly more or less time with our closest of kin this year, Zalando wants to help us to show them just how much we care at Christmas. 

The holiday season is always about celebrating and spreading joy, but this year, the notion of festive cheer resonates that much more.

The events of 2020 have caused us to miss opportunities, cancel plans and spend months apart. So, while this Christmas might look a little different to years past, we think it's time to shake off the collective grief and soak up all-things merry and bright. 

Gift-giving this year, too, feels more meaningful, with some not being able to see loved ones in person. But whether it's sent via post or given over hand-wrapped, there's no reason we can't show our loved ones how much we care with a thoughtful gift. 

Gifting A Hug

Against the backdrop of a challenging year of uncertainty and separation, human connection has never been so high on our Christmas wish lists, so Zalando has launched a festive campaign that reflects the current circumstances this holiday season, while also sending a message of optimism and hope across Europe.

Called 'We Will Hug Again', the feel-good campaign celebrates the hug as the ultimate expression of warmth and human connection at this time of the year and showcases intimate videos and images of real-life people simply hugging. 

So, to continue in the spirit of bringing an extra dose of joy to this year, we've partnered with Zalando to serve up a selection of gifts sure to delight — whether you're spoiling loved ones near or far. 

Because until we can wrap ourselves in the arms of family and friends, these present ideas will convey our love, warmth and appreciation for each other. 

Scroll on for endless gift inspiration to suit everyone on your list.
