December is a month of waiting when you are a child or have a childish soul. Unwrapping a little present on each day of December might put a damper on the most impatient souls, but finding 24 little advent calendar gifts can be quite the struggle. Why not make it a little easier on yourself and give four bigger presents on each of the four Advent Sundays instead? That way you might also be able to find some more useful gifts.
We have put together a list of affordable suggestions for Advent Sunday gifts for your children, your partner, your friend and your parents.
Advent gifts for children
Older children in particular will be able to appreciate four, bigger gifts, compared to 24 little advent calendar gifts. This way you can combine pampering them with giving them something that is also useful.
If you don’t want to go all rational, surpise the kids with something crazy, Christmas-y or just plain cute.
Advent gifts for your partner
That special someone surely deserves some extra attention during the most busy month of the year. Help them perform some self-care with some of these ideas:
Or give them a gift that shows your appreciation of who and what they are: Your guardian angel, your own private master chef, organiser extraordinaire of the house or the light of your life.

Advent gifts for your dear friend
December is the perfect month to show your friends how much you care. Make sure to let them know that you don’t expect anything in return.
Advent gifts for your parents
Your parents might be the ones who usually give you gifts, but why not turn things upside down this Christmas? Your mother and father will surely appreciate your thoughtfulness. Nice gifts can be things that make their lives a little easier or more safe. You can try to think of a theme and find a couple of gifts that suit each other, like a vase and some artificial flowers, or a tealight holder and some LED tealights.
Enjoy the four Advent Sundays!
