Every Christmas, you will have in your gift list one or two people for whom it is practically impossible to buy the right gift. For one thing, they might be having everything that ordinary human beings could possibly have. Further, they might be expecting you to gift them something unique. How do you solve such a conundrum?
The fact is that it is nothing impossible to solve. We have given below a series of ideas that you can use for selecting a gift. Add to it a little creativity of your own and you will be able to gift a person something that he will remember for the rest of his life.
Wonderful Christmas Gifts That You Can Afford
It is important to remember that an exclusive Christmas gift need not be expensive. What you have to do is make the gift recipient feel special. There are many ways to do that.
Try creating the gift yourself. Nothing can match the charm of something that you have made yourself. If you are good at crocheting, make a set of table mats or cushion covers or a scarf, depending upon the time you will be able to spare. Garments that you stitched, candles you made at home, greeting cards that you painted, or a collage that you made are some other gift suggestions.
Personalize whatever you are giving. Blankets, bathrobes, golf clubs, candle stands, brass lamps, bed sheets, books, or clothes will look many times more attractive to the person who receives it, if it is personalized. If you embroider your name and the gift recipient’s name on a blanket and gift it, the person is bound to remember you practically every day he goes to sleep wrapped in that blanket. Same will be the effect of a personalized wine glass or robe.
Gifts for Collectors
If the gift recipient is an ardent collector of things like stamps, old coins, pictures, designer jewelry and the like, your job will be easy. The best gift you can give to such a person is more pieces of his collectibles. If he is a philatelist, try to gift him rare postal stamps that are not in his collection. If you are not able to get the item that the person collects, you can consider gifting connected objects like a display tray or an album.
If you find the choice of a single gift difficult, consider gifting a combination of items based on a theme. Design a movie gift basket for a movie fan, with CDs and DVDs of good movies and books about movies. To give the finishing touch, add to it items like popcorn and chocolates that are normally sold at movie theaters.
Gifts That Will Create Beautiful Memories
You need not always make gifts of objects. You can gift a person a beautiful experience like a night of trekking or a day or cruising. Consider the following suggestions:
- If the gift is for a loved one, gift an exotic holiday with you.
- Make the gift of a cruise together with you.
- If he or she is an adventurous type, consider the gift of a hot air balloon ride or a ride in a race car.
- Give a ticket for a zoo visit, an opera, or a musical or sports event, based upon the gift recipient’s interest.
- For a chocolate lover, schedule a tour of a chocolate factory.
- Gift a membership to an amusement park or a club or a spa.
- For a gourmet, give a gift certificate for a restaurant.
These are some suggestions of interesting experiences. Human nature being so varied, you may be able to think of many more things that people may love to experience.
