Interesting and useful gifts for Ukrainians: what to present to loved ones for the New Year
Who among us hasn't been in a situation where you don't know what to do with a New Year's gift? It seems like the person tried hard, chose it, but there is no need for this thing. To avoid this, you should know how to choose useful gifts for the New Year and other holidays.
OBOZREVATEL has compiled a list of things that you will be pleased to find under the Christmas tree and that will make your loved ones happy this New Year.
Candles, lanterns, lamps
One of the biggest troubles of this winter in Ukraine is the need to sit without light for many hours because of Russian shelling. Therefore, a gift of light will be very appropriate. You can choose scented candles to create a cozy atmosphere. A flashlight can be accompanied by a set of suitable batteries. A battery-powered lamp is a universal gift in the current climate. And if you want the gift to be beautiful, you can choose a variety of garlands and decor with LEDs.
Properly selected thermal underwear will help keep warm those who lose their heating along with the lights. For those who need it at home or at work, it's better to give things made of natural materials, and for winter sports enthusiasts, synthetic underwear. If you don't know exactly what to choose, go for a mixed material. A nice thing is that you can choose a gift for any budget. From inexpensive, but so nice thermal socks to a rather expensive set of merino wool.
If your loved ones face a really significant drop in temperature in their home during long outages, give them a sleeping bag. Or a fleece liner for a sleeping bag. Or both. Experienced hikers say that even in a very cold room, these things help keep them warm and sleep well.
Warm home textiles
A good blanket or fluffy plaid is practically your hug that will stay with the person you love. The warmest options are woolen and fleece blankets. It is better to choose a blanket made of modern synthetic material - they are lightweight, retain heat well, and do not cause allergies.
Of course, you shouldn't give a vest like a road worker. There are many more beautiful options - bags, jewelry, stickers, key chains. You can also choose outerwear and shoes with such elements. Such things will make evening walks much safer.
Thermoses and thermal cups
These things will definitely not get stale even after the lights and heat are turned off. A good thermos is convenient for taking food and drinks to work, and a thermal mug will be handy for a walk in the cold season. Alternatively, you can buy a cool water bottle for your bed.
