Are you a good gift giver? Maybe you were out of ideas for Mother’s day earlier this year, and you’re never good with birthdays, and now Christmas is coming, you’re feeling totally hopeless about your chances of getting your loved ones something nice. 

But don’t worry too much – you’re not alone here! You just need a few pointers; you need to get your hands on a present that’s going to do one of the three things below, so keep them in mind the next time you go gift shopping. 

Something They Can Actually Use

If you’re not sure what to buy someone, your best bet is to get them something practical, and that they’ll actually end up using in day to day life. Not only will this save them from having to fork out for the item themselves, but it’ll also show that you pay attention to them and their needs, which is always a lovely thing to be reminded on birthdays and Christmas. 

So, let’s say they often have to leave early in the morning for work, and in the colder months, that means taking an age to defrost the car. Get them an ice scraper they can attach to their key ring to always have handy. Not only is this kind of gift novelty and fun, but it’s also extremely practical. 

Something That Appreciates in Value

If you gift something expensive to a person, they’re going to love it; they know it cost you a lot of money simply by looking at it. But when you tell them that the item is only going to get more and more valuable, they’re going to be much more appreciative of the present. After all, this could be the start of their collection hobby of the brand or of similar items!

But what gifts are good for this? Of course, personal items such as jewellery or watches, such as a Grand Seiko model, is a very, very good starting point, especially if you’re buying for someone very close to you. You don’t drop money like this just all over the place, after all, and it could be a very good anniversary present for a partner you see a real future with. 

Something They Can Experience

Finally, when you’re not sure about a physical gift you think they’ll enjoy, you can always get them an experience. Experience days are popular round the gift giving times of year, so you won’t be out of options! 

Things like helicopter rides, or vineyard tours, or even just an aristocratic afternoon tea for two could be great, if you know these are the kinds of activities they like. If not, there are many more digital and mailbox experiences that means they don’t have to leave the house. 

If you want to buy a present that leaves an impression on the giftee, don’t forget about the options above. You won’t even have to invest wisely here, as all of these gifts are great!
