It is nearly impossible to buy Christmas presents to some people as they seem to have no hobbies or interests, if it is a woman you can always buy flowers or something scented for the bath but if it is a man you are in trouble. When you need to buy a present for someone with a passion for collecting things choosing a present can be quite easy as you might just want to buy something that they can add to the collection. Alternatively if you are not sure which item to buy and you are not very involved in that passion or this person collects very expensive diamonds you can buy items that might help store, organise, display or catalogue the collectibles.
Everything can be collected and some people do it naturally without realising that they are actually collecting things (my grandmother left us a vast collection of vintage postcards in pristine conditions not because she realised their future historical value but because she could not throw away anything that was given to her) while others know exactly what they are looking for and its value. There are many different things that can be collected, firstly is anything antique or vintage that might not have had much value to start with but its value is increasing because of its historical importance or rarity especially if together with other similar items. We could include in this category matchboxes, postcards and train tickets. Then there are objects that had some value which is increasing with the passing years this could be anything from antique furniture to vintage illustrated books. Another category would be that of items which are released to be collected, for instance commemorative stamps or collectible dolls or miniature train sets. The last main category would include all natural objects such as stones, shells, leaves and so on. If someone is into collecting something and you are prepared to do a bit of research and buy something for their collection or something that will enhance it,you will surely make someone very happy this Christmas.
