There’s nothing better than watching someone’s face light up when you hand over a gift that you’ve picked out especially for them. But finding that perfect present can be difficult, if not a little stressful. If you have someone in your life you’re looking to treat or celebrate a birthday or other occasion with, here are some ideas for perfect presents which will always go down well.
Something relating to a hobby or interest
If you’re stuck on what to buy for someone, one of the best things you can do is have a think about their hobbies and interests. What do they already enjoy- could you buy something relating to that? If they’re into music you could look at gifts for guitar players, or if they’re baking you could get them some equipment that they might not have. If you don’t know the specifics of the hobby, you could find a good shop relating to it and get them a gift voucher to use there instead. It’s more personal than giving them cash or just a general voucher that could be used anywhere.
Homemade gifts are made with love, not only are they a great budget friendly option for you but they show the person that real care and effort has been made. In some cases, a standard gift off a shelf won’t be quite right for some people- maybe they’re not particularly materialistic, or perhaps they already seem to own everything. Something homemade means you get to give them something they definitely won’t already have. It could be anything from handmade jewllery to a homemade candle, to baked goods like cookies or an impressive cake! It could be something a little different, such as a special meal you’ve prepared for them at home, get creative and think outside of the box.
Experience days are loads of fun and are a different kind of gift. Since there are so many different kinds of experiences, there’s something for everyone. From relaxed afternoon teas and spa days to racing car experiences and hot air balloon rides! If you don’t want to give a material gift, or want to give the person the gift of your time as well, why not do something together and make a really special day of it.
Finally, personalised items always go down well. While with any gift it’s the thought that counts, when you get something monogrammed, embroidered or personalised in some way it shows you’ve gone the extra mile. From jewellery to stationery to a dressing gown or anything else you spot which can be personalised, it makes for a lovely, special gift.
What was the best gift you’ve ever received, and why?
