There’s many birthdays and anniversaries to remember and all are equally hard to remember. Gifts are harder to decide. Some relatives like personal gifts, while some prefer to have simple ones. One thing that always comes in handy is having a list of some gifts everyone would like. Like a trip to Disneyland or some branded products from a foreign country. Popular gifts are easy to remember.
Great gifts would be to give something non-materialistic, like time, attention, happiness or a warm hug and a greeting of the special day.
Either personal gifts or popular gifts.
A trip to a popular place
This is something everybody likes. A trip makes a perfect gift. Commonly, people take that as a trip to Disney land. I would suggest to go to a foreign country like Canada, Malaysia, Australia, Switzerland. If you can’t afford a trip there, then visit a place in your own country. Like a hill station or a sightseeing, maybe an amusement park or a holiday home.
A foreign dinner at a themed restaurant
One thing everyone enjoys is food. A dinner at a great restaurant with a theme and food works great. Or you get ready-made food packets, cook it and share with your family.
Talk to them about anything in which they are interested and have fun. That would make a perfect gift.
Take them to art galleries or get them to do hobbies with you
Everyone is impressed by art. You have to make sure the art is interesting to the person. Like if a person is interested in paintings, take them to an exhibition or if someone likes literature, gift them a good book to read. Share some time with them near a fire sipping coffee or read them the book. Impress them with your knowledge about art.
This is not an extraordinary gift but for sure it is popular. There are thousands of DIYs available on the internet or the social media. Go out looking for a great gift and you will surely find it. DIYs are the cutest things to give. You can gift cups, cupcakes, baked food, protein shakes, book marks, etc, all by looking in the right place.
Make them feel special
This is an awesome gift for your loved one. Everyone wants to feel special. Treat your loved ones such that they feel they are the closest to you.
Use the flavour they like, be interested in them, think in favor of them. They’ll love you for that. Say “you are special to me” or do something that makes them feel so.
Show them value
Include them in a discussion or an important meeting. Ask their opinions before deciding something. Take them to places with you. Ask them how were their days. Talk to them often. Give them personal gifts. Make them laugh or be nice to them. Keep them happy and see how they respond back to you.
Show them respect
Value their personal space and privacy. They are doing something on their phones and laptops, don’t peep in. Don’t use things that they really like. Stay away when they are talking to friends.
Knock their door before coming in. Trust them and smile at them while they are upset or crying about something. Give them some time alone. That would build trust and loyalty between you and your loved one.
Home made recipes
This is easy and free. All you need is a good idea, and you have your gift. Yes, there’s efforts but it is free. You can make home made food or cards, craft, etc. Home made recipes give that feeling of closeness and make others feel like a priority. It’s the best gift for personal special occasion like a birthday or an anniversary.
