It is better to choose a gift that is practical. Notebooks, business card holders, pens, tea or coffee sets, wine. You should choose useful things, taking into account the habits or character of each of the colleagues. For example, for women these could be aroma lamps, dishes, household items, and men will appreciate cigarette cases, ties, USB flash drives or headphones.
Look for something that embodies homeliness. A warm bathrobe, a self-made cake, decor for the home, bedding. Mom can be given personal care products, jewelry, cooking tools, bags, etc. For your father, look for something from the technique (for example, a tablet), a wallet, a warm scarf. For both mom and dad, cook something, or order what matches their hobbies, if they travel, arrange a trip for them, or arrange an evening in their favorite restaurant.
A New Year's gift to your nearest and dearest: husband or wife should symbolize your love, attention, and care.
You may ask what he/she wants, but it is better to observe his/her interests in advance and to choose the gift by yourself. Many men dream of a helicopter or a radio-controlled yacht, so you can please your husband even with such toys for fun, don't be too serious; wives often dream of not practical nice present (for example, a funny toy) or something exquisite, emphasizing her beauty, a personalized jewelry piece, specially for her.
Silver (gold or platinum) jewelry, perfume, a stylish scarf or a trip ticket for two of you - it's a win-win option!
If you are going to celebrate the holiday with your best friends who are just married, give them something romantic. This could be a custom jewelry piece. Choose a unisex design, and order bracelets or rings with the same engraving. This can be something really simple, like initials, their names, or the wedding date. Or you can add some phantasy and choose a really unique personalizing. This can be a soundwave engraving. What is it? You may record a piece of their wedding song, get a picture of it and engrave on the rings for both of them. You may also find the GPS coordinates of the place, they both are dreaming to travel to, their travel destination, and engrave the coordinates on the bracelets with a wish to make this trip true.
When choosing a gift for children, it is important to focus on age and gender. For example, for a boy under 10 years old, toys-superheroes, board games, and radio-controlled cars would be great. A teenage boy will appreciate a gift that matches his hobby. For your grown-up son, choose a new phone, camera or other technic stuff he is dreaming of. Little girls love to play with dolls, so you can give them a new toy for their collection or toy furniture. They will like any bright soft toys: they can be picked up in the New Year theme. For young fashionistas, choose makeup, jewelry or pretty clothes. Is the daughter interested in photography? Choose a polaroid camera or photo book of her favorite artist, she will be delighted!
To any gift add some simple but funny New Year 2020 stuff: Christmas decorations, calendars, candlesticks. They are not expensive but suitable for people of all ages and status, and what is important - add that festive atmosphere.
Gifts that always speak from the heart - DIY crafts. They can be made of cardboard or paper (for example, create thematic cards for each guest), textiles (toys, decorative pillows or tablecloths), decor (decorations for a home or a Christmas tree), jewelry (bracelets or earrings, etc).

One of the interesting ideas is pillows for the home. Making them easy. Knowing what your family’s interior looks like, you can pick up a festive fabric design. To make such a pillow associated with the New Year holidays, choose a pattern with Christmas trees and snowflakes. As the rat is a symbol of 2020 according to the eastern calendar, so a similar approach can be applied to decorating blankets, tablecloths, plaids, curtains, and other textile items for the New Year.
In accordance with the symbol of the coming year, you can make your own Christmas gifts for children. These can be not only toy rats but also Christmas trees, snowmen, Santa Claus and other characters.
