Christmas Gifts for Aunts

Linda RayNovember 24, 2010


For many people, aunts are very special ladies who give their nieces and nephews love and attention all year long. Finding the right Christmas gift for your aunt can be a thoughtful way to show your appreciation. Consider how she likes to spend her free time and what her general tastes are to come up with creative gift ideas.

Most women enjoy jewelry of all kinds and you can find a number of appropriate gifts for an aunt that will appropriately express your feelings for her. Watch her for a while to pick up on the kinds of pieces she wears regularly. She may be the kind of woman who always sports a different brooch, or perhaps she wears bracelets on a regular basis. Find a piece of jewelry that you know she will wear and that fits in with her style and tastes. You can insert your picture in the Signet Locket Necklace from RedEnvelope that is a classic piece that women with any kind of taste could wear. You can get her initials engraved on the front of the sterling silver piece as well.


Boxes, fancy dishes, pottery and electronics holders make for useful Christmas gifts that women can always use to keep accessories organized. If your favorite aunt shares text messages with you, then you know she needs a place to charge her phone every day. Consider the Solar Gadget Charger from RedEnvelope, especially if your aunt is environmentally conscious. She might appreciate its portability too as she can easily fold it up and take it when she travels. The charger that also can use an AC adapter is designed to charge up to three accessories at once, including smart phones, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets and digital cameras.

Ongoing Gifts

Make sure that your aunt realizes how much you appreciate her every month with an ongoing gift this year that can last long after the holidays are over. She may enjoy a fresh basket of fruit each month with a gourmet basket delivered to her from Harry & David. Customize the selections to include her favorites. With the Year of Wishes Candles from RedEnvelope, she can burn a different candle each month and think of you. The set comes with a glass tray and 12 candles, each with a metal plaque on it with a different positive affirmation.
