While some people relish the idea of giving presents to those they love, others can find themselves truly stumped when it comes to coming up with new ideas. The pressure to ‘get it right’ when finding your loved one the perfect gift can often cause a bit of a creativity block. Instead of making a last-minute rush to the nearest department store on the day before, consider a few concepts that could provide the answer.
A place to visit
If you have been constantly talking about a place you would love to go one day, then perhaps you could use this as a present idea. Even if you don’t book the full package holiday, just booking two pairs of return tickets during a time when you’re both free can help kick-start the process of finally traveling to somewhere you’re keen to visit. This can take a lot of planning and effort to pull off, though, so be ready to plan, plan, and plan.
A collectible item
If your loved one has a particular passion they’re enthusiastic about, then finding them a one-of-a-kind item could be a present that’s in another league when it comes to thoughtfulness. Researching their area of interest and finding something that is truly unique will show that you know them inside and out.
An extension of their hobbies
Does your partner like to vape, or perhaps your best friend has mentioned that they wish to give it a go; either way, you could treat them to a starter kit so that they can give this hobby a try. For example, getting them a fun vape and starter kit from Ultimate Juice could help them discover a new favorite pastime.
This gift is a two-for-the-price-of-one idea. Lovingly compiling a hamper for your loved one also provides you with the opportunity to take them somewhere special. Putting their favorite foods and charcuterie together, alongside some fizz or an alcohol-free alternative will give you a day to remember. Picking a theme and adding a few choice high-end foods to your hamper will give it a fancy and diverse feel.
A selected perfume
Just like music, scents come with memories. Buying them a new perfume or cologne will create a scent to create memories with, and it’s also a spot of luxury that shows you’re prepared to go that extra mile. Be wary, however, of rushing in and buying a scent for them without too much thought. Many people are picky about the scents they use from day-to-day, and so it’s good to check that you’ve hit the nail on the head. Make a note of what they currently wear and do some research into similar scents, perhaps by asking for help at a department store or perfumery.
Whatever the scale of your gift for a loved one, what matters is the sentiment behind it. Whether you’re trying to help them along with personal goals or select a one-of-a-kind item, the fact you thought of them should be the cherry on top.
