You are probably having a hard time finding the right gift, either for him or her. But, worry not, because, by the time you are done reading this piece, you’ll have a perfect idea on what gift to get for your special someone.
For starters, you need to understand that different people have different preferences. And it doesn’t matter what you think might be right for the recipient. For instance, he might be a very strong sports enthusiast, but it doesn’t mean getting something that’s sports related will be a perfect gift. Well, it might be, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it applies to everyone.
Therefore, with this kind of thought in mind, it is always advisable to dig deeper and make good use of your research skills. For now, maybe you don’t have to embark on research, because this article has already done the research for you by offering five best tips for finding unique gifts.
What Are The Recipient’s Interests?
The very first thing you need to ask yourself is this: what are his/her favorite preferences? What does he/she like doing during free time? Is he/she into traveling? What is that one thing he/she loves but has never been able to get?
In other words, think of something he/she has mentioned before, but you both forgot all about it. To be honest, men are going to have a hard time with this! But women can always remember to get the best steampunk watch as a gift to their men.
Has He/She Developed A New Obsession?
As human beings, we tend to develop new hobbies and obsessions. This happens quite often. Even though some of these obsessions and interests usually go away after some time, it won’t hurt to get him/her that special gift based on his new passion.
Specifically, if she has recently been admiring Michelle Obama’s fashion trend, then buying your wife/girlfriend the latest Balmain suit Michelle to wear while on Ellen DeGeneres Show would be just perfect.
Find A Gift That Says“Forever”
Okay, we know that tattoos (kind of) stay forever with us. But, what if you aren’t the tattoo type? You need something that can be handed down to future generations. And what’s better than an artistic, Victorian and customized Steampunk watches for both men and women.
It might sound like a cliché, but watches are the best alternatives to tattoos and the most remembered gifts. Better still; a handcrafted watch characterizes a ‘personalized’ appeal to it, which draws your relationship much closer.
Throw in A Little Bit Of Yourself
There comes a time when it’s not about what the recipient likes or loves. In some cases, the recipient already loves the relationship between the two of you. It doesn’t matter the gift you’ll have, he/she will be pleased with the effort you’ve made—whether big or small.
Therefore, it is okay to throw a little bit of yourself into the gift. But be careful though – you wouldn’t want to come off as obsessive and self-loving. So, just find something that both of you seem to like. It can be based on a TV series you both love watching, or a place you both love visiting, or an activity you usually do together.
Go Completely Opposite
Why don’t you be creative and do something that’s completely unexpected? I mean, in most cases, it is all about getting him/her what he/she likes. Why can’t it be about something he/she completely loathes?
There is nothing more memorable that gifting your recipient something he/she doesn’t like. This sticks forever in a person’s memory. Even though it might sound funny, it is something you’ll both remember (don’t forget to make a video).
Let it be something that’s going to last for several years to come. That way, he/she will later on (years to come) remember this particular gift and chuckle in hindsight. It does sound ridiculous, but it works in the long run. Give it a try!
