Whether it’s for Christmas, a birthday, or just a random gift you feel like giving, finding something that you know someone will really like isn’t always the easiest of tasks.
By paying attention to the things the people in your life talk about most often, the things they buy for themselves, or the things they wish they could buy, then you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to get them, which is better than just getting them something that you like, or that you think they would like.
Check their Kindle Wishlist:
Honestly, whenever someone buys me a gift, I really wish they would ask me for this first, because Kindle books are really all I want, and my Wishlist is so large that they would definitely find something on there. The great thing about ebooks is that they’re pretty cheap, but it’s absolutely the thought that counts, and a good book that I really want would mean so much more to me than some random item that cost four times as much, because it shows that someone has taken the time to understand what I really like.
Breaks & pamper days:
Nothing says you care more than acknowledging how much you appreciate what someone special in your life does, and that you notice it. Everyone loves to be pampered – even if it’s just for a day at a nice spa, it will mean the world to them because self-care is something that most people are bad at doing, but having someone else ensuring you take care of yourself because they see what you’re doing will mean the world to them. The same applies for trips, no matter how short they are – there’s something so symbolic about saying “take a break because you deserve it.”
Appliances & gadgets:
Appliances definitely have a bit of a bad reputation in terms of gift giving, but honestly when done right, they make the most amazing gifts. Things like coffee grinders, machines, and really good cooking equipment doesn’t always come cheap when you want the good stuff, and if the special person in your life really sees the value in these things and would love to use them, then I assure you, they’ll love it. Other gadgets like computers, smartphones, etc, may seem a bit empty on the surface, but again, it’s all about what people value. If your loved one is about to start a new business, then a gorgeous new laptop would be the perfect gift.
Of course, we could go on all day about the different types of gifts you could get for people, but ultimately you know them best, so you should just use your better judgement. This list should hopefully give you some inspiration, at least, and also help you pay more attention to the things the people in your life may really appreciate, and maybe even dropping subtle hints about.
Giving good gifts doesn’t need to be difficult, time consuming or expensive – when you put the genuine thought into it, it shows, and this will be far more appreciated than any amount of money.
