Finding the right gift for someone can be tricky. You might find yourself wanting to take your gifting to the next level, but it’s hard to know how to break the mold of your go-to ideas for family and friends. If you’re looking for fresh ideas for a birthday, Christmas or other event, check out these three fun gift ideas to get you started!
Getting even a typical gift of some kind engraved with meaningful text or art can take it from good to great! Whether it’s a nice mug, a ring or even a book, think about how you might have a gift for someone personalized with an important date or picture that will make them smile and bring back good memories.
Handmade gifts can also be a great way to break from your usual gifting routine. And “handmade” doesn’t have to mean that you make it (although you could, if you’re really good at making something); there are countless websites and stores that carry handmade goods, from handmade leather belts and other clothing to handmade ornaments and furniture.
Finally, don’t forget that your gift doesn’t have to be a physical trinket or piece of hardware; you can give the gift of an experience! Think about what the recipient likes to do, and then buy the tickets, gift cards or whatever else is needed to give them a chance to make that happen. Maybe it’s a tennis lesson or two, or perhaps it’s a trip to the museum or concert tickets, but regardless, a gift like this can be especially meaningful for those who live life more minimally.
These three gift ideas are a great starting place for broadening your gifting horizons. Whether you’re looking for your spouse or for a coworker, try to think outside the box and make the most of your opportunity to bless someone.
