Have you ever wondered what present to choose for your friends or family members? There are so many occasions throughout the year and even if you are full of ideas, eventually you come to the moment when you are just stuck. You don’t know what gift to choose but at the same time, you want to surprise your loved ones and give them something they will remember. What would you do?
Go online for more ideas – of course. Most of us do this. We go online and search for solutions to our problems. There is nothing wrong with it. Using this technique yet requires you to show a little creativity to make the gift more personal.
The most successful recipe for choosing the best present is picking a gift that will not only surprise your loved ones but will also make them remember it for a long time. Here are my top 3 unique suggestions:
1. Every memory is precious
The most important thing in this life, the one thing that we carry with us no matter what happens or no matter where we go are our memories. As Oscar Wilde once said, “Memory is the diary that we all carry about us”. Things end, but memories last forever. They are the timeless treasures of the heart. When we spend quality time with our loved ones, expensive gifts are not important. What matters the most is the feelings we collect in our hearts and all the memories left after the special day is actually over.
So, what an amazing surprise would it be if you collect all of the memories you and your loved one have throughout the years together. Why don’t you create an amazing DIY friendship book or lovely personalized exploding photo box from Etsy including all of your favorite pictures, quotes and stories? In this way your gift will be unique, personalized, and special. It will bring only positive emotions and will be remembered for a long time. There are a lot of templates you can buy online if you don`t know how to create one from scratch. You can even order one from those handmade sites. In this way, the only thing you should do is to send the pictures and the messages you want to be included.
The best present my best friend Maria received from her sister was in a little box. At first glance, it was an ordinary box but when Maria opened it, hundreds of pictures and stories popped up. It was amazing. Maria was blown away by her gift and she still keeps it as a treasured memory.
2. Feel lonely, look up in the sky and see your shining star
If you want to do something special and unique, why don`t you buy your loved one a star? Nowadays there are a lot of interesting offers you can buy online. One of those offers is buying a star. Yes, you heard it right – you can even buy your loved one a star. It`s technically not a physical present but you receive a certificate with the name of the star and its exact location. This is a unique present that holds a special meaning. You can also write a personalized letter or some kind of a message to make it even more memorable.
My other idea including this gift is inspired by the TV show Glee. You can buy a star and name it after you. In this way, whenever the person needs you, he/she can look at the sky and feel your presence, no matter where you are. As Finn Hudson said, “I just wanted to make sure that whenever you feel lonely, you can look up into the sky, and no matter where I am, you can know that I’m looking down on you”.
3. Still don`t know what personalized present to choose
You read all of the articles and ideas on the web, but you still don`t know what personalized present to choose. There is an easy solution to your problem – a gift card. You will ask, but how a gift card can be special, and unique and you`ll be right at a certain point. But we are not talking about the ordinary gift card that has the brand logo on the front. We are talking about the personalized gift card. In this way, the person can decide what he/she actually wants and choose his/her present. You will also avoid the awkward situation where the person doesn’t like the present or even worse when it doesn’t fit him/her. This type of present is both practical and unique because you can choose a very dear picture of you and your loved one which can make it not only. You can even write a special message or a letter that will make the present even more personal and will be remembered. You can also choose a virtual eGiftCard which is the perfect solution for last-minute occasions.
This is one of my favorite ideas when I don`t know what present to choose but at the same time, I don`t want to look like I don`t care. Last year I surprised my mother with one of those cards for her birthday. I chose a very old picture of us that she had forgotten about and I wrote her a personal letter. She was so happy. She used the money to buy what she needed, and she still keeps the card and the letter as a special memory.
Choosing the right gift for your family and friends can be a tough decision. Sometimes you can come to the point where you just don`t know what to choose. I hope some of these tips inspired you to create a unique and personalized present that will be remembered for a long time.0
