Buying gifts can be really difficult, even if you know the person well it can be tricky getting it exactly right. However there’s one way you can improve your chances and hand over something the person loves on a special occasion and that’s by bearing their personality in mind. Think of their likes and dislikes, their hobbies, their interests and go from there. Here are some ideas for gifts you can buy using this method.
For The Person Who Loves Cars
Do you have a car obsessive in your life? Maybe it’s someone that’s recently passed their test and is enjoying the novelty of their first car, or someone that’s a bit of a petrolhead. Car gifts could include anything from small items like air fresheners and cleaning kits to pricier sat navs and stereos. You could buy them a gift card for a car wash, or go down the experience route of a driving day. You can get track days where they can drive their own car, or lots of companies offer things like muscle car and supercar experiences where they can drive the vehicle of their dreams!
The Stylish Girl or Guy
Our appearance is important, this is the way we present ourselves to the world. When you look good on the outside, you feel good on the inside and so it’s no wonder that many of us are into fashion and style. For guys, a site like John Henric will have lots of options in one place for gifts- think cufflinks, ties, belts and bracelets. For women you could go with a gorgeous silk scarf, a piece of jewellery or makeup. If you know their style well, an item of clothing or pair of shoes would work well for either gender. If you know they will enjoy something style related but don’t know their preferences well enough, a gift card to a good department store would work well.
For the Sentimental
When it comes to giving gifts, it’s always the thought that counts. However, some people are especially sentimental, and so it’s worth choosing something that will really appeal to them. Often, these are people like parents and grandparents, and the gift doesn’t have to cost much for it to mean the world to them. Think framed photos, or carefully curated photo books or scrapbooks of precious memories. Things like jewellery or trinkets that can be kept and cherished, or something homemade were thought and effort has clearly gone into it. Another great option for someone that’s quite sentimental is to choose an experience gift where you can spend time together. A trip to a spa, and afternoon tea or lunch at a nice restaurant will all go down well and will allow you to have that time and make some memories. Take a photo of the day, and present it to them in a frame afterwards to remember the occasion.
When buying gifts, it’s so easy to pick up things that we like the look of. However thinking carefully and buying based on your recipients interests will be far better received.
