A problem we all face, especially when we are invited for an occasion, is what would be the most appropriate gift to give. There are many things you consider here. You consider how much are you ready to spend and your relation with the person you are giving the gift to. Many times, selecting a gift can be tricky. The idea is to convey your emotion with the help of the gift. So here are 10 gifts that you might consider as your next choice. Here are 10 gifts that say “I Care For You”.
10.Notepad/Organizer: A person, who likes to plan his/her day, will find an organizer to be of great use. An organizer has designated space for each day of a selected year in which you can fill entries relevant for that day. A notepad can also help in managing daily activities. They can be used to store notes, store information like phone numbers and email ids, make reminders etc. These days sticky notes are used by a large number of people, like many students use them on their study table and many employees use them in their office. “Post-It” is a company quite popular for its sticky notes.
9.Scrapbook of Memories: A collection of photos, that relates to a large amount of time or a very memorable experience, can be considered as a great gift. Who doesn’t like the idea of enjoying their past memories, just by turning the pages of a scrapbook . A well designed scrapbook with a nice selection of photos can give, the right person, a wonderful feeling of nostalgia.
8.Earphones/Headphones: A good set of earphones or headphones can do the trick when it comes to music lovers. If someone has lost his/her earphones or uses a damaged set of earphones, a set of good quality(not necessarily great) earphones can prove to be of great use to that person.
7.Personalized T-shirts: These days many sites provide the service of “Personalized T-shirts”. You can add pictures and text to a T-shirt to give a message. The T-shirt can relate to the interests of the person you are gifting it to, or it can relate to your relation with the person. The person getting the gift will definitely appreciate the thought given into the T-shirt. So your gift works as an object that has use as well as has the personal touch you give to it.
6.Music Collection: A collection of someone’s favorite music tracks as a CD, is a wonderful idea of a gift for him/her. The selection of tracks is of great importance here. Such a gift is only advisable when you now the person’s choice of music very well or there is a particular set of songs that you know, the person does want. Get the set of music tracks right and there you have a great gift.
5.Offer Coupons/Gift Vouchers: If a person tends to frequently visit any shop or eating joint, an offer coupon can be useful. Such coupons can be obtained from various sources like subscription, menu(of eating joint), social networks etc. The right coupon for the right person can prove to be a great gift. The person can choose what he/she wants to buy and can use the offer, whose coupon you gave, to save a good amount of money. If you want to be the one paying the whole amount for the gift you should consider going for a gift voucher/card. Many sites, like amazon and flipkart, have started providing the service of Gift Cards(in other words e-Gift Vouchers) of value depending on site to site.
4.Ticket to an Event of Interest: People have a wide range of interests and each of these interests generally have events associated with it. Tickets to such events can also act as a proper gift for example a ticket to concert for a music lover, a ticket to a play for someone very interested in drama, a ticket for any fest related to books/games/etc depending on the person’s interest.
3.Hand-made Cards/Letter/Art: If you want to go for a gift that feels unique, you can go for making your own unique gift. If you are good at art, then you can prepare a nice piece of art that has special meaning for you as well as the person you are giving the gift to. Or else you can make a card with just a set off sketch pens and a piece of paper(or even more things if you want) and give it with any appropriate gift of your choice. Or if you are not very good at drawing and coloring, you can also write a letter in your own handwriting to complement any kind of gift that you are giving.
2.Ticket for a Trip: Many people like to have a break from the ever challenging process of living the day to day life. Some people also have the dream of visiting a certain place at least once in a lifetime. A ticket to such a place is like killing two birds with one stone. Firstly, the person gets his dream fulfilled and secondly he/she gets a break from his/her routine life, which at times can get really monotonous. To make things easier for the person, in addition to the ticket, you can also create a rough plan for the trip. Though it is obvious, but remember that you should have some kind of assurance beforehand, that it would be possible for the person to travel on the date and time on the ticket.
1.Surprise Party : The idea is not really a new idea. But this is where one can use the phrase “Old is Gold”. If organizing the party for the occasion doesn’t say that “I care for you”, then I wonder what will. In other words, it is one of the best ways to say “I care for you” to someone. Though a surprise party, ideally, can only be thrown by someone related closely/directly to the person(or the people if more than one) on whom the occasion is based. So if you are not that close, then it is better to consider some other idea.
Selecting a gift not always being an easy process, many people find the idea of giving money or something the person himself/herself wants more appealing. As long as in budget, a person can always buy anything he/she wants with money. Besides this idea, we can all agree that the idea of a surprise has its own good things. After all nothing beats the fun of opening a box that is packed, filled with wonder. When it comes to a gift, it is always a good idea to select something that can be used or admired for a long time. There can be no perfect gift for everyone. Rely on proper thought and a little bit of your intuition.
