Gift Ideas For Every Occassion

Aug 31, 2007
Gift ideas for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays are plentiful, but choosing a gift for other occasions such as a graduation, new baby, house warming, or another milestone in life can sometimes be difficult. These monumental events in life deserve to be treated with importance, and your gift ideas should reflect your support of your loved one.

Welcoming a newborn to the family is always a happy time. Items the parents want or need are usually outlined in a baby registry they have applied for before the child's birth.

New parents usually want to have everything that has to do with giving the best care to their firstborn. On the other hand, parents who have more experience believe that the great gift ideas are the basics for feeding and changing, such as diapers, blankets, bottles, and formula.

Gift ideas that both sets of parents can appreciate are gifts that involve their child's financial future such as a savings bond or a savings account. A US savings bond can be purchased in denominations from $25 up to $10,000 with a maturity up to 30 years.

It is a gift that will mature right along with the child. If a child decides to attend college, he or she will have some money set aside to help pay for tuition. Alternatively, help pay for some college books for the student already in school.

As a new high school or college graduate, a young person goes on to take the next chapter of life. As graduation gift ideas, get a book or a poster with messages of hope for the future.

An idea is a set of leather bracelets embossed with inspirational life sayings. The graduate can take these bracelets along with when he or she is away at college or facing a line of job interviews and needs encouragement.

You could also think about giving a money tree as a graduation gift, said to bring prosperity to those who own one.

For friends or family members that have just purchased their first house, look for gift ideas that help maintain the upkeep of their home. A gift basket or toolbox of items such as a tape measure, a hammer, screwdrivers, assorted nails, or some paintbrushes could really come in handy.

You could also think about purchasing small gardening tools, gloves and some seeds for maintenance outside the home. If you know their style, look into getting dinnerware or glassware that suits their tastes.

Special memories of time spent together can be a great gift ideas for a loved one moving away. A glass jar filled with strips of brightly colored paper containing memories of your time spent together can help a loved one feel close when feeling lonely or homesick.

All they have to do is pull one out when they feel the need to remember times past or want a wistful smile, and they'll appreciate the little notes you've jotted down to bring them back home, at least in thought.

Any day can provide an opportunity to share a gift or gift ideas with a loved one. You can give a gift of love and appreciation any day of the year, and there is no reason to wait to show someone that you're thankful the person is in your life. Put some creativity into your ideas, and offer small gifts that show you care.
