Sustainable gifts, useful gift ideas for Christmas or technology gifts are becoming increasingly popular. Today, we are also looking for suitable gift ideas. We have put together the top 12 gift ideas for Christmas which are all about the weather, time and home.

The 12 best gift ideas for Christmas 2023

Here are our top 12 ideas for Christmas gifts:

Gift Idea 1: Design wall clock for your home

A Christmas gift should always be special and personal. Is there a room in the home of the recipient that is missing a decorative wall clock? The design wall clock CLOCK IN THE BOX is the perfect accessory to decorate this room, a timeless design piece by designer Andreas Brückner that fits in a compact box. This stylish wall clock fits perfectly into any space, is silent thanks to its sweep movement and is available in four different color variations. In addition, every purchase supports multiple sclerosis research and promotion with a donation of € 1 to the German Multiple Sclerosis Society in Baden-Württemberg.

  • Dial consists of 12 plug-in parts
  • Simple plug-in system made of high-quality plastic

Wall clocks are tasteful Christmas gifts that everyone will be happy about.

Gift idea 2: Thermometer to save energy

Energy-saving measures for your own four walls can protect the environment and reduce your electricity and heating costs. After all, the most climate-friendly and cost-effective energy is the energy we don’t use at all. If the room temperature is one degree cooler, it will reduce energy consumption by an average of 6%.

Our new energy-saving thermometer provides you with support in the form of temperature recommendations and concrete tips for correct heating and ventilation. This will help you achieve your personal savings targets. Therefore, check each room individually with an efficient thermometer and keep the room temperature in the lower comfort range.

Gift Idea 3: Alarm clock for a good start to the day

Do you also know someone who has problems getting out of bed on time in the morning? Then, the digital radio-controlled alarm clock with BOXX2 indoor climate is the ideal gift. It has two significant advantages that set it apart from conventional radio-controlled alarm clocks. Firstly, it does not need disposable batteries, but its integrated rechargeable battery can be recharged easily, economically and in an environmentally friendly way via a micro-USB cable – on a notebook, on a PC, on a power bank – just like your smartphone. The battery lasts approx. 6 months. Its second highlight is the option of setting individual alarm times for each day of the week.

  • Self-tests for home or the office can make an important contribution to more consideration and safety for all of us in coronavirus times. A timer helps to keep to the waiting time of 15 minutes.
  • This gift is also practical for school and lessons, whether for class tests, homework, experiments in chemistry and physics lessons or for sports lessons.
  • If the recipient regularly plays sport, a timer is a great gift: in training, at a recreational tournament or during a workout.
