Best Gifts For All Occasions: Allow Me Pick For You
Buying gifts for your friends shouldn’t be a daunting task. But most times we find that it is. Why? Reasons vary. It could be because your friends have everything that they could possibly want or you are at a loss and do not want to buy the same gift as everyone else or you can’t find something that’s special enough.
Well, you have come to the right place. There are no hard and fast rules to gift buying. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is your friend’s personality and preferences. Something exists out there for everyone, and even the most common gifts can be made special with a little tweaking and customization. Amazing, right? Oh, and one more thing, different gifts exist for different occasions, so you don’t make the mistake of buying the wrong gifts for the right occasions.
Now, a lot of occasions or celebrations demand some sort of gift, so to guide you on the right path, I have put together a list of occasions and the kind of gifts you could buy to put a huge smile on a special face. Note that this list is by no means exhaustive; it is just a selection of items that should be at the top of your shopping list.
This is a very special one! Buying gifts for your significant other sure tells them how much you love them. And buying gifts that reflect their preferences shows how much you pay attention to them.
– For Him
You could buy an Xbox or a Playstation if he’s an avid gamer; an engraved wristwatch; a wireless headphone plus charging bank if he likes to listen to music as he works; his favorite shave set; his team’s shirt, blanket or towel if he is a sports fan; a pocketknife if he likes to work with his hands; or a leather briefcase.
– For Her
Flowers are a winner, especially if it’s a bouquet of her favorite flowers; a bottle of her favorite perfume; an engraved bracelet (a phrase that means something to the both of you or your anniversary date); some lingerie or practical underwear ( if you are scared of going shopping for lingerie, lol); a scarf; Samsung galaxy buds if she likes to get her groove on; a personalized notepad if she likes to make notes or her job demands some form of it; or a leather tote (it’s perfect for going everywhere and it is guaranteed to become her favorite fashion accessory.
– For The Both Of You
A kissing mug set; a couple bathrobe set, you can wear these and snuggle near the fireplace or on the couch; a bottle of your favorite wine or two. Remember to tell your partner how much you are in love with them; the gift is only a part of it.
Baby Shower Gifts
This one sure drives most people crazy, especially the – not – crazed- about-family folks. Lol. Buying gifts for a baby shower is one of the easiest things ever especially when you know the sex. Your gift could be any of the following: clothes (onesies, socks, cute little cardigans, shirts with cute captions and a whole lot of other stuff); diapers; swaddling clothes; bed linen; rattlers; music toys, etc. easy, right?
The big one! We do not want to give a thoughtless gift, nope! Birthdays often give you the opportunity to give really thoughtful gifts and your gifts could really be one of a kind. Trust me, the recipient is going to remember your gift for longer if it is especially thoughtful. You could buy perfumes, jewellery, books, t-shirts, handbags, watches, wallets (these are easily personalized however you want), personalized stuff like mugs, key chains, mobile covers, lamps, photo frames. You could also buy flowers like roses, lilies, orchids and carnations. Remember, it is the thought that counts.
Bridal Shower Gifts
Buying a gift for your friends’ bridal shower is not as scary as it seems. Remember that the gift has to be something the bride and groom will both be able to enjoy and should have fun trying to do so too. Don’t look so bedazzled, they’ll have fun either way. Gifts for a bridal shower include quality champagne glasses (these will last a long while, trust me); a few of her favorite things (you’ll feel good when you see the look on her face); scented candles or a spa treatment; lingerie or a robe to wear(the honeymoon is going to be lit!); a photo frame; bed linen; crystal ware and toiletries too.
Yay! Someone finally got a promotion at work! Now, most people aren’t expecting a gift, just the usual hugs and kisses. Well, surprise them and get them a gift. It’s worth the look on their face when they get it, besides it says a lot about your support. You could get them a bouquet of flowers with a note that says congratulations! ; a laptop bag; a personalized money clip; a leather briefcase; a bottle of wine; a personalised leather cover notebook; a boss mug, just to mention a few.
Valentine’s Day Gift
You’re thinking flowers, chocolates and a romantic night out. Nice, really nice. But adding a little extra doesn’t hurt anything. You could get her jewellery (a really nice necklace, cute earrings, bangles or bracelets and maybe a ring); a photo album; lingerie; pajamas; a beauty set, to mention a few. And, you, my lady, can get him a sweatshirt; a wireless charging system if he is always on the go; a bathrobe; a chocolate cake if he has a sweet tooth. There is no limit to what you can buy your partner on Valentine ’s Day, the important thing is to be thoughtful about it. Mindless gifts have as much worth as nothing.
We’re getting ready for a wedding! And what’s a wedding without gifts for the happy couple? Keep in mind that the couple are about to start life together, so your gifts should be fun and at the same time practical. Don’t worry, it’s easy. You could buy them some really good cookware (ovens, crockpots, frying pans, sauce pans, baking equipment) particularly if they’re a cooking couple; photo frames; customized stuff like prints, wedding bowls, wine glasses, wine racks, wall clocks, tote bags, etc. you could also buy stuff like fancy laundry baskets, throw pillows and maybe a family magazine subscription, lol.
There you have it. Gift buying made easy. Have fun!
