Spread the spirit of Christmas to any part of the globe with simple Christmas gift ideas from a distance. See The Christmas Cart’s top picks for Christmas gift ideas that are perfect for posting, and for putting smiles on faces, this festive season.

Distance and restricted travel options might be making it tougher this year to share time with everyone that you would usually see over the holiday period, but you can still share your spirit of Christmas through some lovely Christmas gift ideas, no matter the boundaries you are facing. Even if you can’t pull up a seat at the same Christmas table this year, you can still share the gift of giving from a distance instead.

We have handpicked some of our favourite Christmas gift ideas that are perfect for spreading a sprinkle of joy and a sparkle of Christmas magic to all corners of the globe.

Here are The Christmas Cart’s top 6 Christmas gift ideas for any distance, whether it’s across the city, the state or across the sea.

#1 Give a Precious Christmas Keepsake with Personalised Christmas Baubles

Much like a representation of a little globe itself, a personalised bauble is a perfect Christmas gift idea to send to, and from, any stretch of land. Personalised Christmas baubles add a touch of class to any Christmas tree. They make great Christmas décor pieces throughout the home too, especially our hand painted Christmas baubles, which can be personalised too and look absolutely beautiful when displayed on a stand.

Select your favourite from our range of gorgeous personalised Christmas baubles. There’s a variety of colours, sizes and finishes so you’re sure to find something to suit each and every one. We then personalise the baubles using our own gorgeous and unique style of glitter hand calligraphy in your chosen colour. The result is a one-of-a-kind Christmas keepsake to be cherished year after year, as they are hung on the Christmas tree or displayed in a special place within the home.

For those who love the combination of bright colours and fun characters associated with Christmas, you could opt for a magically cheerful Christmas gift idea and give one of our character Christmas baubles. These baubles include Santa, reindeer, elves and other typical Christmas characters, as well as cute Australian-themed Christmas critters and teddy bears, that sit on top of a personalised Christmas bauble. They are all merry, bright and just right as a Christmas gift idea from any distance.

* Bonus décor tip: if you are lucky enough to have family and friends joining you at your place this Christmas, these Christmas gift ideas can form part of amazing Christmas place settings for your Christmas table too. Use a personalised bauble at each place setting for an instant festive boost.

Regardless of where they are being sent, all of our baubles are packed in specially designed boxes to ensure they travel and arrive in perfect condition.

#2 A Gift for Gifts – Personalised Christmas Stocking or Santa Sack

Personalised Christmas stockings and sacks are not only a great Christmas gift idea themselves, but they can make for an interesting unwrapping experience for whatever may be inside as well.

To make this Christmas gift idea from a distance even more personalised, here are a few quick and easy ideas to help inspire you:

  • add a note to your recipient inside the stocking or personalised Christmas sack (we suggest using a thicker medium for your note, such as cardboard, which helps to ensure your note will be found)
  • create a DIY personalised gift voucher with items of interest for the recipient to enjoy when they see you next. Depending on your relationship with the recipient, ideas could include a free hug, a DIY personalised pamper session, a cocktail happy hour, a coffee catch-up, etc.

#3 Say Cheers from Afar with Personalised Christmas Wine Glasses

You can’t be together right now, but in the meantime send a cheers to a glass of your favourite beverage.

Wine glasses are a classic gift idea for many different occasions, but personalised wine glasses make a lovely Christmas gift idea, especially with a few thoughtful extras put in.

Our friends at Gifts and Keepsakes have some beautiful personalised wine glass designs too, if you’re looking for something that is not specifically Christmas themed.

Here are some ideas to mix and match to create a wonderful wine glass gifting experience:

Our personalised wine glasses are securely packaged to ensure your delicate gift travels, and is delivered, in the same quality condition that it left us.

#4 Cuddle Up with a Christmas Cushion

If you can’t be there to give your own special Christmas cuddle, a Christmas cushion can provide a cute gesture to your special someone in its place. And for even more Christmas comfort, couple this Christmas gift idea with a movie DVD, a packet of microwave popcorn, and a popcorn box. Slippers would also fit nicely into this Christmas gift idea package. Your gift recipient can sit back and soak up some movie magic in the comfort of their home.

Pop all of your gifting goodies into a Christmas gift bag as a brilliant Christmas gift idea from any distance.

#5 Say It with Personalised Christmas Signs and Plaques

For a great Christmas gift idea from a distance; send your personalised Christmas message on a gift that can be proudly placed on the wall or in a special place at your recipient’s home.

We have a fabulous range of personalised Christmas plaques that can be personalised with your message on a beautiful wooden backing. Send someone your gift of the gab which they can cherish every Christmas.

Alternatively, print one of our free Christmas poster downloads to send with a personalised letter to your recipient. This simple Christmas gift idea only costs a little of your time and the price for posting, but can mean all the difference to someone who is missing you this Christmas.

The events of 2020 mean that a lot of our usual gatherings and gift exchanges are likely not taking place this year. Giving Christmas gift ideas from any distance doesn’t just apply to family and friends. Think about work colleagues or other associates that you might usually give a gift to that you don’t, or can’t, see in person at the moment but you still want to share a little of the Christmas spirit with them. We need to make this Christmas as special as possible, even if it is as little different. Or perhaps even more so because it is a little different. You may not be able to see them in person this year, but you can show your appreciation, love and the spirit of Christmas through some simple and lovely Christmas gift ideas from any distance.

At The Christmas Cart we can send our Christmas gift ideas around Australian and overseas too. Everything is packaged to travel safely and securely. There’s not long to go before Christmas Day is here, so don’t delay. Check out the full range of Christmas gifts ideas that we have available at The Christmas Cart. While you are at it, don’t forget to fill your cart with gorgeous Christmas tree decorations and Christmas home décor for yourself too, to make this Christmas magically magnificent.
