Giving a gift is more than just sticking to tradition and handing someone a package on their birthday or putting it under the Christmas tree. It’s important to make them memorable so that people will appreciate the gift every time they use it, and it shows that you put some thought into the process. Adding that personal touch can make the whole exchange individual and personal.
Make Everyday Kitchen Items Special
Nearly everybody has received a gift that they have used once or twice – or maybe even less – and then never gets heard from again. By giving the gift of everyday items, you’re giving someone something you’ll know they’ll use. It might be exciting to give someone something flashy for a gift, but the reality is that some of the more mundane items wind up getting the most use.
The kitchen offers plenty of opportunity for gifts that are used often. Things like custom tongs are a versatile tools that get used often. Personalizing them adds a special touch that makes them unique. They’re used in a number of ways, and putting a name or logo on them will ensure they think of you every time they’re used. Other kitchen items like pizza cutters, ice cream scoops, spatulas, and ladles can all be customized to give that special touch.
Head Into the World of Sports
If they’re big fan of a particular sports team, find something unique to that. Items for sports teams are everywhere, from blueprints to stadiums to their new favorite tumbler to hold their favorite when watching a game, there are many avenues for those gifts. Some of those may be able to get customized, too.
If they are active outdoors, find something that fits in with their particular activity – whether it be fishing or rock climbing or mountain biking. There’s always a way to take something that they use often and make them unique. These are just a few examples, but can go a long way in making a gift more memorable.
Focus on People’s Hobbies
Other unique gifts come from just knowing what people like to do in their spare time. Think of what you see the recipient of the gift doing the most often, or talking a lot about. If they like to put together jigsaw puzzles, get them a unique lamp to illuminate their workspace. If they like playing board games, give them something to make it easier for them to store them.
Personal is always better, because it shows you put a lot of thought into the occasion, and can set your gift apart to make it special for them. The customization mentioned earlier doesn’t have to stop with kitchen items. Get creative and turn something they use a lot into something that means a lot.
Things like cash and gift cards are impersonal and are too often a fallback for those giving gifts. Making something individual will go a long way in making your gift memorable.
