Gifts have the potential to convey those feelings which cannot be expressed in words as gifts are a box of feelings delivered to the person they are meant for.
When it comes to gifting, the best gift I could imagine that anyone gave was by Jack from Titanic.
Yes, I am talking about the sketch he drew for Rose!
It was thoughtful, natural (not commercial), and had emotions behind it, which make it one of the best gifts ever.
But there are also 1000 ways to get this wrong! (Watch the video of Night Changes by One Direction and you will believe me.)
For all, I can remember you don’t want to be that guy/gal who gifted a pen or any other cliché gift to your loved ones.
So here are 5 Gifting Tips to find the right gift for your loved ones.
These gifts can be for anyone your date, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, or your pet as well!

1. Add A Spice of Yourself To The Gift By Being Creative.
What are you good at?
Cooking, Singing, Writing / Poetry, Painting, or can you play any instrument?
It is time to think out of the box to create something for the giftee which comes from your heart rather than from Amazon!
You may cook a meal or curate a small write-up or dedicate a song or anything which you can do for him/her.
You may also make a video in which you record videos of her co-workers and play it when you call her to cut the cake or something like that.
2. Handmade Portrait Painting.
Who said you have to paint it?
Handmade Paintings Are Back In Fashion and this time you don’t have to find someone like Jack from Titanic to paint the portrait.
All you need to do is select a medium in which you want your painting to be amongst Oil, Charcoal, Pencil, Colored Pencil, Water Color, or Acrylic at PortraitFlip, who will ship it your doorstep anywhere in the world.
And don’t be that person who hands it over saying Happy Birthday or Happy Valentine’s Day. Make it exciting for the giftee!
You may text her look under your sofa, and keep a chit saying where we first kissed, and then hide the painting somewhere in her room.
Text her, “Meet me where we celebrated our first date.” And then tip the waiter to lead her to the table and to place her favorite food on the table with a candle.
And then you walk in to speak poetry which you wrote followed by some pre-planned jokes and finally, you give the giftee the handmade painting of him/her!
3. Tailored Celebration!
Sit at a place and think of the 5 things the giftee loves to do!
Yes, go back into time and think!
He / She might have dropped it sometime that she might like to do this someday.
It might be eating street food, dancing, clubbing, playing a certain sport, trekking, kayaking, parasailing, sleeping under the moon, going on a jungle safari, wine tasting, or a 100 more things!
Plan all the 5 in a day and do it, all you will be left with is memories to look back and laugh upon.
4. Create A Basket Of Happiness
How about you thoughtfully think of all the little things he/she likes and put them together in a basket as a gift?
Spend time on creating a list and again going back in time to know what the giftee loves to wear, eat, drink, or watch!
A basket may look like:
- Favorite chocolates from childhood.
- DVD of her favorite movie.
- A thoughtful badge to go on her bag.
- A handmade table painting.
- Favorite flowers.
- A handmade card with a beautiful write-up.
Don’t forget to make this exciting by following the tip in the 3rd suggestion of this list.
5. Charity (It Works Like Magic!)
Ok, so you might be struck with the thought,
He/she has everything, what shall I gift?
The answer is they have found their passion and have fulfilled their needs in life, but its time to give it to others!
Simply ask 2 hours on his/her special day and buy some stuff beforehand. Tell them this is your gift, so wait and watch!
Take them to an orphanage, old age homes, Blind school, or pet home. Ask them to donate the stuff you bought and then let them spend some time with them.
He / She will walk out with a lot more than you expect, do it to believe it!
Create memories like never before and enjoy life to the fullest by making others happy with gifting what they like!
