Gift Giving: Being Prepared For The Year Ahead

We all know that there are certain points throughout the year where giving a gift to your partner is the done thing, right? It may be your anniversary, it could be valentine’s day, or even birthdays. Not to mention the big C-word at the end of the year once more. Even those gifts when you just want to show them how much you love and care about them. Gifts are a symbol of your love, they don’t have to be over the top or hugely expensive, it is more to do with your thought process and thinking about your partner. What they would like, how it will make them feel? With that in mind, here is everything you need to think about to get prepared with gift giving this year. 

Gifts to help with fitness or health. 

The first quarter of the year sees people focusing on fitness and health. So these sorts of gifts are fast becoming a normal thing to give to someone. It might be a fitness tracker they can wear to track their intensity levels, the steps they take, and how many calories they could be burning off. It could be in the form of a book, detailing recipes to make to help you keep on track. You could even give the gift of a gym membership if you think your partner would appreciate it. However, don’t be deterred, this is becoming more of a common gift these days. 

A gift that is personal to you only

Sometimes it is the real personal gifts that make all the difference. A necklace engraved with something special. A personalised gift showing an important date or name. Even things like quotes or things you say can be made into great gifts with wall art or ornaments. This is where no one can make the decision for you, or even offer your advice on what to buy. It needs to be personal to you, your family, and your relationship. Jewellery is often the “go to” for things like this. You could make sure it is wrapped delicately with tissue paper and a gift box. However, if you are thinking outside of the box with personalised gifts then small businesses who use platforms like Etsy and Instagram could be a great place to look. A quick tip is to think about the occasion in which you are purchasing the gift and take it from there.

The gift of a trip or relaxing getaway

Finally, sometimes the best gifts are a trip away or heading off somewhere to relax and get away from it all. These work well for things like anniversary gifts or birthdays. A chance to relax might be few and far between these days, with busy work schedules and a family to take care of. So booking a weekend or holiday away could be the best gift you can give. Think about a relaxing spa, perhaps one of your favourite places, or even rekindle old memories and go back to places you have been to years ago. 

Let’s hope these tips offer some inspiration.
