Gifts made with love

The festive season brings with it much anticipation and emotion. Schooled by nostalgic images of Christmases past, we dream of creating the ‘perfect’ celebration, so we indulge in great expectations, which goes hand in hand with soaring stress levels. But if we just tune into one of the real meanings of this time of year – to show those we love how grateful we are to have them in our lives – we can focus on an aspect of the festivities that is guaranteed to boost our own happiness, too. Research has found that carrying out kind acts makes us feel more confident, in control and optimistic about our ability to make a difference to people’s lives and connect with them better. Christmas gives us the perfect opportunity to do this. This year, Psychologies has teamed up with Etsy – the only place where you can find special, unique, one-of-a-kind presents created with love – to bring you a gift guide with a difference. Take a look at our choices for the important people in our lives and let it inspire you to really think about what you can give your loved ones, to say thank you, to show appreciation, to spread joy. Get ready to ‘have yourself a merry little Christmas’.


Editor “I want to say thank you to my son, Charlie, who has just turned 14, and who has chosen not to go to the teenage dark side but instead, to be kind, supportive and make his old mum laugh on a day-to-day basis. ‘Create not consume’ is one of our mantras, so I think a branding pack for the new, inspirational YouTube channel he is setting up is just the ticket”

’For Clare, who is an inspiration to me, this uplifting message will make her smile.’ Blanket, from £26, BabyJivesCo
’For my fellow cocker spaniel-owning buddy – she can wear this when we walk our dogs together.’ Joy Christmas jumper, £40, CloudsandCurrents \
Branding package, £80, RiverAndTree

About Psychologies

It’s all about love this month. In our 18-page Dossier we look at the reality of making your relationships work once the rush of lust wears off. We encourage you to choose to love each other, imperfections and all. For those who are struggling, we’re giving away our 30-day ‘How to save your relationship’ online course with relationship expert Sarah Abell– worth £47. We are also looking at how to navigate bringing up teenage children with our coaching columnist Kim Morgan, plus discover a new way to deal with grief - over dinner! Gratitude is the theme of our special gift guide for Christmas and beyond. We’ve partnered with Etsy, our favourite online portal for unique gifts made with love. Who and what are you grateful for this month?
