It is often said: "It is better to give than to receive." But what makes gift giving even more special?
The bottom line: Choose a gift that reflects the recepient’s personality. If you know what kind of person they are, then it is easier to pick something they'll really enjoy.
Gifts should be useful. A gift is no longer a gift if it sits on the shelf unused or collect dust in some drawer (or worse, ends up being sold at a garage sale). If its something that sits on a shelf, ensure its something that provides humour or encouragement.
Gifts should be thoughtful. It is nice when someone pays attention and puts thought into something you did or said, even if it was just small talk at the grocery store checkout line last week! Put some thought into what you feel would bring that other person joy. What’s important to them?
Gifts can be practical or sentimental, and even better if personalized.
Practical: If you want to give a gift that is practical, there are plenty of options. For example, if its for someone with a lot of gadgets, a personalized bedside vallet stand can help with organizing their belongings. If it’s for a jewellery lover, a jewellery display stand might be appropriate. If your friend is always scribbling, a personalized notebook would just hit the spot. Think about what practical might mean for that person.
Sentimental: One great way to show someone you care is by giving them something sentimental - a gift that reminds them of the time you spent together or some other special memory. A letter written by your mom when she was 7 could be a nice addition to any kid's bedroom decor, especially engraved and preserved. Similarly, a generational family tree would be great decoration for a gallery wall, telling the family’s story.
Personalized: When it comes down to choosing gifts for friends and family members who know each other well enough, personalized gifts might just be what is needed. The possibilities here are endless - whether it’s customizing an existing item or making one from scratch (depending on how much time you have left before the occasion), anything goes really – so long as it fits within budget constraints!
