There are generally three kinds of gifters out there.
- The first, are the kind that run around frantic at the last minute only to end up with a gift card so the recipient can "buy what they want".
- Next, are the ones that go out and buy different products and pop them into a gift bag or have them wrapped in festive wrapping paper.
- And finally, there are the gifters that really know who they're buying for and are able to find a gift so beautiful and meaningful that their recipient is truly blown away.
Which one are you?
If you're not sure where to start, but don't want to be one of the first or second gifters from above - that's okay! We're here to help! Because whether you're out and about thinking of different products you can find to curate the perfect gift for your recipient, or it's the night before your best friend's birthday and you still need something to "WOW" her, if you take our top four gifting tips below into consideration - I promise it will 100% up your gifting game!
Something that they'll get to see everyday. Maybe it's affirmation cards to fill their mornings with positivity, or goal setting cards to remind them to chase their dreams. It could even be a gorgeous vase or piece of decor, a book they've been wanting to read, or a beautifully framed photo or piece or artwork. Whatever it may be, it's sure to be a lovely reminder of your thoughtfulness when they see it, and a little grin will appear on their face as they think of you as the one who chose such a considerate gift.
You can't go wrong with a treat or two (or three)! And now it's time to think about what their favourites are. It could be a delicious chocolate or candy. Maybe it's biscuits or mixed nuts, or perhaps tea or coffee is more their thing. Think about whether they would prefer something sweet or savoury (or why not a Sweet AND Savoury gift), grab a few of their favourites and even something new for them to try.
Whether they're into strong scents, like a candle that would infuse the entire room, or something a little more subtle such as a hand cream, soap, or bath bomb - there are plenty of options to choose from when taking this tip into consideration.
4. USEA lasting item they can use time and time again! How about a journal, paired with a reusable coffee cup so they can have a moment of reflection. Or it could be a pair of socks, or a bottle opener so they're ready when it's time to suit up. What about sporting equipment or a new towel or water bottle for the gym? Think about what their hobbies are, what they truly enjoy - and there's sure to be a gift idea in there!
The most important thing to remember when gifting is that it doesn't need to be over-the-top and extravagant. There is a beautiful simplicity in gifting, and we're here to show you just how simple it can be. Use the tips above to curate your next gift and let us know how you go!
