The festive season is slowly approaching us. The winter season is all about family and sharing, more specifically, giving back to the people who you appreciate. However, at times it can be difficult to figure out what to gift to your family and friends during this season, especially with the high Zurich costs. 

If you are struggling to come up with ideas for gifts, continue reading this article for 5 gift ideas that can be easily found in Zurich.

Yankee Candles 

There is nothing better during the winter season than a vanilla-scented perfume filling your room. Yankee candles have over 200 unique scents that cost around $21per unit. They can be easily bought and ordered online, and are a perfect gift for a friend or family member to set the perfect atmosphere for the winter season.

Cute Sweaters 

Another cheap and easy-to-find gift is a cute sweater. The Winter season is often chilly, especially in places like Switzerland. Therefore sweaters are the perfect present for anyone during the winter. Additionally, you can buy them anywhere. Some recommended stores are H&M, Zara, Mango, Subdued, Brandy Melville, etc.

Advent Christmas Calendar

Another affordable gift idea when you’re unsure of what to give a friend or a family member is an advent calendar. This could be any type of calendar, for example, a calendar with makeup (Sephora), chocolates, tea or coffee, or more based on an individual’s personal preference. This gift will bring the element of mystery and excitement into your loved one’s winter. 


Although this option is not as affordable as the other gift ideas, it is a very meaningful gift for your loved ones who love accessories, specifically jewelry. If you are able to spend a lot more money on this particular gift, you can easily find nice jewelry in Zurich in stores like Pandora, Tiffany & Co, Cartier, etc. If you are budget friendlier but still want to purchase jewelry for your friend or family member, you can still purchase cheaper jewelry in stores such as Brandy Melville, H&M, Zara, etc.

Bath Bombs

No matter what season or weather it is, baths are a heavy stress reliever for anyone. Especially during the colder months, when most of our time is spent out in the snow, a warm bath can improve anybody’s mood. Bath bombs are a perfect winter gift for anyone who enjoys baths during the colder weather. A recommended store to purchase bath bombs is LUSH, with cruelty-free and handmade products. LUSH can be found in Zurich at HB and sells various beauty products including different bath bomb designs. 

The winter season is the season of showing gratitude by giving back to the people you love. Hopefully, this list has helped and inspired you for your Christmas shopping spree. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your gifts this year, if you want to save some money or make a gift that’s more personalized.

 I wish you all the best holiday season and a relaxing break! I wish you the best of luck in finding the perfect gifts!
