If you’re having a secret Santa at work then you’re probably nervous about picking the ideal gift for your coworker, I mean after all, those are the people you spend most of your time with and it would be a shame if you still don’t know each one’s preferences.
That’s why we have made you a list of ideas that you can’t just go wrong with, unless your coworker is a picky one!
1- Printed Socks
Socks are the trendiest gifts now plus winter calls for warm and comfy ones, so if you’re familiar with what your coworker likes, you can make them a customized ones. If you don’t, you can get them ones with a Christmasy theme. You can also find plenty online, so you don’t have to waste time shopping.
There are just so many pages you can buy from, but these are the most popular!
2- New Year’s Planner
Who doesn’t love to pretend like they have their life all planned and figured out? Well, everyone likes a little sense of organization in their life. Planners are another trend, they come in many cute shapes and the cutest giveaways. Again, you can choose a design that matches their character or simply get a plain one.
Mofakera has a wide range and they’re sold in many places as well as online.
3- Card Holder
Card holders are very useful and they come in reasonable prices too. So if you’re getting a gift for a practical person, this would be an ideal gift.
You can get ones for both genders from Palma, they have the nicest designs and best quality plus they have just launched a line for men.
4- Travel Mug
If you know any coffee addict, this would be a great gift for them if they’re always on the go and they just can’t not have their morning coffee.
5- Skin Care Products
We all have someone who’s obsessed with taking care of their skin or hair, those are very easy to please with any products for skin or hair. You can buy from Nefertari and they can help you choose the ideal gift, they also have a Christmas gift basket that includes lots of goodies!
Scarves are a nice idea especially in this cold weather we’re in, it’s good to be wrapped with both love and a nice scarf. You can get from H&M or online through this page that sells Turkish Shawls.
Lastly, remember that it’s never really about the gift but rather about giving and exchanging happy thoughts, so a little card telling the person what you appreciate most about them is genuinely the nicest idea and would do the trick of sending out happy and festive vibes.
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Suspends Services for One Month
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.
The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.
The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.
As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.
For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.
The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.
As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.
We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
