Unique Gift Ideas

Aug 17, 2007
When a special event is coming up, it is most likely you will be thinking about how to please your dear ones when choosing the right gift for them. And finding the right present might sometimes be difficult, as you struggle to think of something suitable that they don't already have. You want to give the perfect gift, but still all you can think of is a boring present that won't do the job.

So what can you do to find a great unique gift for that special person in your life? Try to do some brainstorming first. Think about what that special person likes or collects. Write that down, or do some research. You might indirectly ask what they need the most, or what they will be buying for themselves in the coming months. Common acquaintances can also be a great help to find out.

For example, if the person you are intending to find a gift for is your girlfriend, you can ask her sister or her parents about what kind of thing she might be looking for.

The next step is working out how much you are going to spend. You can decide what your relationship is to that person and also how much you can afford. You don't want to spend $1000 for something that is intended for a colleague from work. Try to imagine the reaction of the person when seeing the opened box, and also how guilty they will feel when they can't reciprocate.

Here's a tip: do not buy anything personal for a person that you do not know very well.
If the person you want to get a gift for is someone you are very close to, you can try to figure out an original idea that could be much appreciated. You can try to think about a hand made gift as a viable option. It's simply very nice to know that you've got a present from a person who spent some time making the gift. This adds value to the gift, not to mention that it is going to be unique. A cake with a nice drawing, mugs, t-shirts, paintings are just a few ideas of what you could do.

Well, in case you are not at all good at making hand made things, you can try to make the card yourself. If you cannot possibly draw anything good, you can try to cut a few images from magazines and make a collage on the card. Interesting results can occur.
You may just surprise yourself!

You could also ask someone to make a personalized gift. Jewelry, clothes and vases can be made with special inscriptions for your loved ones.

If your mind is blank and you don't have time to figure out what to get, you can simply turn to specialized gift idea web sites. You will be able to find a lot of nice present ideas. All you need to do is to look for the event and category. You will be shown a number of variants and you will be able to decide on one eventually. This will take less time, less energy and it will also remove a lot of worry from your mind.
