The first thing you think about when the holidays are around the corner, are gifts. It is one of the important and time consuming aspects of your holiday shopping list. You need to put a lot of thought and effort into it, if you intend to impress your loved ones with your gifts.
The task of getting gifts for everyone does not have to be one filled with hassles, instead make it a fun project by planning ahead. This will help you make sure that they are the best gifts you get for your loved ones.
Here are 10 tips to choose the best gifts for Christmas this year.
- Don’t underestimate the power of a well wrapped gift. This year, ditch the plain designs and look up online for quirky and creative gift wrapping ideas. This will create an impact even before the recipient can unwrap to get to the actual gift.
- Gifts do not have to be tangible objects always. Gifting an experience also has a great impact. This is especially true when the person you want to gift already has whatever you can think of, or if you cannot find the right thing to gift. This experience can be anything – like tickets to a concert of their favourite artists, cruise tickets, and a lot more.
- Opt for personalised gifts if you want to get something that the recipient will value for a long time. These can be monogrammed mugs, photo frames, or gifts like cushions and throws with pictures of them or their loved ones.
- Planning well in advance does not just mean setting the budget. Make a list of all the things the person you want to gift is interested in, as this will help you zero in on the right gift. Maybe he or she is looking for a desk organiser, a potted plant, a small kitchen appliance, or a DIY tool and so on.
- If you wish to be on the safe side with gifts, go with a box of gourmet chocolates, cookies, or a sumptuous cake, or send a large gift basket that contains sweet and savoury goodies!
- Always get a gift that the person will love and prefer even if you don’t like it. A lot of times you may buy something that may be something that is a fantastic idea to you but may not be necessarily to the person getting it.
- Try to work out conversations with your loved ones through which you can get an idea of what they would like for Christmas. If you feel you are unsure of what to get anyone for Christmas, you can always ask them directly too.
- If the person you want to get a Christmas gift for is someone who is difficult to please and if they wouldn’t tell you what they want, a gift card is the best option. This way the recipient can choose what they want and you don’t have to worry.
- Always add a handwritten note to add a personal touch to any gift. Send any gift with a bouquet of beautiful flowers if you wish to make a grand statement.
- If your loved one follows any humanitarian cause religiously, you can make a donation in their name to that cause through NGOs or other agencies.
Follow these tips to ensure that you up your gifting game this Christmas by getting your loved ones the gifts they will love and value.
