Gift giving is a powerful way to show someone that you care about them and to celebrate special moments in their lives. Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, graduation, maternity leave or other special occasion, giving a gift can bring a smile to someone's face and create lasting memories. Each occasion can be made special with right ingredients of thought and personalisation – whether you budget is small or large – a one on one or an office whip round!
One of the most important aspects of gift giving is thoughtfulness. There is no point booking a gin tasting day for a maternity gift or a cheese making day for a lacto-free person! When you take the time to choose a gift that is tailored to the recipient's interests and personality, when it shows that you have put a lot of thought and effort into the gesture the value of the gift and the joy received increases. This can make the gift even more special and meaningful.
Another way to make a gift extra special is to personalise the item. Adding a personal touch, such as having a piece of jewellery engraved with the recipient's name or initials, can make the gift even more special and memorable. Personalised gifts can also be a great way to commemorate special moments, such as a wedding or graduation. Be aware though that there are only so many Happy 21st mugs that a person needs!
The experience day gift market has grown in recent years, with people opting to enjoy the experience with the recipient. Vouchers for a cooking class or craft day, can also be a wonderful way to celebrate most special occasions. Covid taught us that the power of together and social interaction is something that when taken away we miss so look for gig tickets, days out and shows. These types of gifts allow the recipient to create new memories and passions, which can be just as valuable as a tangible gift and why not spread the love – the more the merrier, invite the whole team along!
Nowadays it seems like every day can be a special occasion, and maybe we should celebrate each day. When a baby is announced gone are the days of discretely popping a gift in after the birth, it’s gender reveal - baby shower – birth – cake smash!
