Any gift that you spend time picking out for someone is special when it comes to these kinds of things it really is the thought that counts. But if you want to do something a bit extra and make it even more memorable, here are a few things to try.
Get It Personalized
We all love the personalization, and any gift immediately looks well thought out and special when you open it up, and it has your name on it! You can order everything from personalized stationery to nightwear to mugs from companies which will arrive ready to go. Alternatively, you could buy an item and have it personalized somewhere else. For example, you could buy a dressing gown or set of towels and have them monogrammed or names stitched onto them at most t-shirt printing type shops. You could buy jewelry and have it engraved, or even have a piece of wall art created with one or more names- the perfect gift for a family! There are loads of directions you could go with this, so no matter what you’re buying or your budget you should be able to find something suitable.
Even if you’re only buying a small gift for someone, adding a bunch of flowers too instantly makes everything look more impressive. Research has shown that flowers have an impact on our happiness and promotes feelings of calm, well-being, intimacy and gratitude. So if you want to make an impact with your gift and make the person you’re giving it too feel even happier, then give them a bunch of flowers too.
Spend Time on Gift Wrapping
While a stunningly wrapped gift is probably going to be lost on an excited child, for most adults it’s something they can really appreciate. Handing someone a beautifully wrapped gift shows that you’ve put a considerable amount of time and effort into it. And again even if it’s not a large or expensive gift it’s the thought that counts. Pinterest has lots of gift wrapping ideas, even some rustic brown paper can look incredible when tied up with ribbons, string, and a gorgeous gift tag.
Give Something Homemade
There’s so much inspiration online for homemade gifts you won’t be short on ideas. If you’re crafty and have a particular skill, utilize it! If you know, you can bake cookies better than any gift box from a store, or can knit a scarf as good as any you’d see on the high street then why wouldn’t you? If you’re not especially good at anything like this, then you still have options too. For example, putting together a hamper with lots of little things you’ve picked up still gives the fun homemade element. Buy a pretty basket online and fill it with whatever the person you’re gifting to likes. Fluffy socks, candles, chocolates and alcohol all make great additions. You could even add a gift voucher too if you wanted to spend a little more.
