7 Christmas gifts that sum up 2020

From hand sanitiser and baking supplies to noise-cancelling headphones, here are 7 Christmas gift ideas that are oh so 2020. 

2020 has been a year like no other, marked by blazing bushfires, royal resignations and an epic US presidential election. Not to mention that little thing called a global pandemic… 


Now that the year that would seemingly never end is finally wrapping up, what Christmas presents should we be, well, wrapping up? Here are 7 Christmas gifts that are oh so 2020…  


  1. Kobe Bryant shoes


Former NBA player Kobe Bryant, who played 20 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, died on 26 January 2020 in a tragic helicopter crash. Named in honour of a raw emotion that defined Kobe’s game, the Mamba Fury Nike shoes display all the hallmarks of his legendary shoes.  


Not sure what style or size to choose? Buy a Christmas gift card instead. These shoes are available via The Him Card through participating retailer Nike. 


  1. Beauty essentials


Who could forget that time back in early 2020 when toilet paper was quite literally the most coveted household item, followed closely by hand sanitiser? After some serious panic buying, most people are now stocked up – not to mention in need of some serious R&R and beauty maintenance.


Treat a loved one with a true beauty essential, The Pamper Card. This gift card can be used at salons, day spas and beauty clinics that accept eftpos around Australia. 


  1. Home gym equipment


The gym lockdowns of 2020 sparked a digital fitness boom, with the rapid increase in home workouts meaning hand weights and fit balls were almost impossible to come by. And while thankfully gyms are largely back up and running (with COVID safe precautions in place), home workouts are a trend that will continue to grow. 


Kit your loved one out with all the home gym equipment they actually still need with The Active Card, uniquely linked to a huge range of popular fitness brands. 


  1. Baking supplies


In iso life, cooking is very cool. From Insta-worthy focaccia “gardens” to whipped coffees and home baked sourdough, cooking hashtags went as viral as the coronavirus itself. 


Support this newfound love of home cooking with The Home Card, a gift card that’s available at Australia’s favourite home retailers. 


  1. Finding Freedom


No, this isn’t some sort of post-quarantine existential reference. Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and The Making of a Modern Royal Family is the book that “goes beyond the headlines to reveal the unknown details of Harry and Meghan’s life together”. Including why they decided to leave the royal family this year… 


Not sure if your gift recipient has already read it? Do the smart thing and get an online gift card instead. The Online Card even includes ebay as a participating retailer. 


  1. Noise cancelling headphones


Home office and home schooling are two things that simply don’t mix... Noise cancelling headphones, wireless headphones and other Zoom-related tech are an must-have for anyone who’s #WFH. 


Let them choose the home office tech they really want with participating retailer JB Hi-Fi, available with The Her CardThe Him Card and more. 


  1. Home delivered haute cuisine


At the beginning of this year, the idea that Australia’s best fine dining would arrive via cardboard box and motorbike was inconceivable. Now, it’s just another part of the new world order. 


Our Restaurant Gift Card can be used for takeaway meals from any restaurant that accepts eftpos. Better yet, now that most restaurants are open again, eat out! 


On top of being the ultimate present for food loving friends and family, The Restaurant Card helps support Aussie hospitality businesses that have been doing it tough in 2020.
