Gift giving in special occasions is something that most people look forward to. It is the simplest way of sharing joy with everyone around us. Imagine receiving a gift that you have absolutely no use for, like giving a child a kitchen knife set. This is of course an extreme example but the idea behind it is clear. Gift giving is supposed to make everyone happy. This is why you need to find something that is affordable to you and is meaningful to the receiver. Think about the following dynamics when selecting a gift for someone next Christmas or New Year’s Eve. It would be a shame to disappoint a loved one on such joyous occasions.
Know your person
A gift should be something personal, something that is meaningful to that particular person. In order to do this you really need to know all the little things that they like and dislike, what kind of a personality they have and their general outlook on life. You can start by making a small list of all their traits. This will give you a place to start, you can have some idea about what to get them. For example if they are a huge Harry Potter fan you could get them a wax stamp kit with the Hogwarts seal. It is guaranteed that they will absolutely love the gift you give them of you start from a small list.
If you have literally no idea about the likes and dislikes of a certain person then you may have to resort to this option. Go to their Instagram page, their Pinterest and find out what their aesthetic is. A person’s Instagram page has more information than you may think. Even on Facebook you may have seen people sharing pictures with the caption “I need this in my life!” If you find such posts you’re in luck. Stalking can come in handy at times like these.
Don’t get them just one thing
At times getting one huge gift and getting a few small gift can make a huge difference. The easy way to do this is to get a care package or a hamper. In Australia getting a care package for someone is easy because there are so many places that make your custom packages. Imagine a situation where you have to get a gift for some new parents who had just had a baby. The type of gift is obvious, it has to be something for their baby. You can buy baby hampers Australia that have a small baby powder, some pampers and onesies.
Get them something they can eat
This is just the easiest most thoughtful gift you can give someone. No one will ever say no to food. Food hampers are really easy to find but you still have to “know your audience” as they say. If the gift is for a sophisticated person gourmet gift hampers would be the way to go, with a bottle of some fine wine and chocolates. If the person you are getting a gift for is carefree and simple a box of brownies should do the trick. Maybe other options like cupcakes or cheesecake would also work.
