Our Favourite Gift Ideas for 2018
It’s a new year, and that means there’s a whole year of birthdays, holidays, and just-because gifts to search for. And we know how exhausting searching for the perfect gift can be!
Rather than buying gift cards, clothes, or any of the other usual gifts you would choose for those most important to your life, let’s gift give a bit more creatively this year.
These gift ideas are just a few of our favourites. Use these ideas for inspiration on what to give people in the coming year; they’ll surely be impressed!
Dinner At Home Kit
If you need to get a gift for a friend that you haven’t been spending enough time with lately, considering putting together a “dinner at home” kit that the two of you can enjoy together!
Find a recipe that you’re comfortable preparing, and gather the ingredients necessary. Give this to them as a gift on a night that you’re meant to go out together, but instead, stay in. Prepare the meal as part of the gift, and while you do so, enjoy the time that you’re able to spend together.
By the end of the night, you will have eaten a delicious meal together, and you will also have had the opportunity to catch up for lost time!
A Meaningful Decoration
Rather than giving your friend something disposable (as many gifts are), choose a gift that can be used as a decoration in their home over the next few years.
One idea for this type of gift from The World of Miss Mindy Disney figurines collection of collectible. Many people love Disney, so you can get a delightfully sculpted character that matches the gift receiver’s favourite interests.
While you could just choose a standard figurine, these figurines are more creative and stand out – giving the gift receiver something to show off around their home!
Handmade & Homemade
This year, more people than ever are getting into the movements of wasting less and cherishing more. And you can adapt that mentality to suit your gift giving ideas as well!
Rather than giving a gift that you worry will be thrown out or given away in no time at all, put together gifts that are more sustainable for our environment and the world around us. This could mean making some homemade pillows or baking up your friend’s favourite goods for their next birthday.
Whatever you choose to create, the gift will come from your heart, and that’s what matters most.
While giving a donation as a gift has gone out of style in the last few years, this gift is coming back this year, and for good reason. Every day there are more and more people in the world that could use a little bit more help – so why not give the gift of making the world a better place?
If you feel strange giving a donation to a friend as a gift, bring this topic up in conversation prior to doing so. See how they feel on the topic before committing.
A great way to do this kind of gift is to choose a donation pack that gives you a certificate or something physical that you can wrap and present in person to the gift receiver.
It’s a new year, and that means there’s a whole round of birthdays, holidays, and just-because gifts to search for. Check out some fantastic gift ideas here!
