If you’re planning on surprising your friends this Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Finding the ideal gift for people close to you can be daunting, so take a moment to consider what they like and what they don’t, and if they’ve been dropping any hints lately. We’re here to help you find something to suit their tastes and your budget so here’s a selection of Christmas gift ideas to show your friends you care this festive season.


If your friend loves nothing more than curling up with a good book, why not pick the latest bestseller as a great Christmas present? Else, you could get a book by their favourite author or try something new. If they’re into cooking, you could always pick up a cookbook. Head to Borders at the Mall of the Emirates or City Centre Mirdif and you’ll discover a whole world of books to choose from, with something to suit everyone.
