Tips on Choosing Unique Gifts

Wendy Stokesby:


When the situation comes knocking on the door and you need a gift real soon, you are in for a problem, right? The task may become more difficult then you thought in the first place if you don’t really know the person you are buying the present for or just lack any good ideas at the moment. For those and more other reasons we have decided to assist you in choosing the perfect gift for whoever you are buying this gift for. Here are a few things to bear in mind when you are buying someone a present.

First and foremost, create a budget and stick to it. The common mistake is that we tend to overlook this part in the majority of cases. Whether for emotional reasons or just to make an impression we usually spend much more/less than we initially thought.

At the start of this process, you should automatically dismiss what not to buy and not to consider at all, as this will save you a lot of time and energy. It doesn’t matter whether you gift is expensive and glamorous or not – what is important is that it is something the other person likes and wants – and more often than not, it is a small thing, rather than a big one.

Remember it is not about you! When considering what to purchase you need to block the questions in your mind such as “will they like me more or less because of this present?”. Your efforts should be unselfishly oriented, considering the happiness of the person you want to buy the gift in the first place.

Surprise them with your research, targeting their hobbies or different interests. If they are a fan of Star Track you can check out Space Universe Inspired Store, or if they are Marvel fans you can find them a present in the sea of options, etc. Little details from their lives can point out the perfect gift and all you have to do is figure out what that may be.

While you are considering what to buy, try to recall something specific from the past of that person, something he or she has said, and see what you can come up with. Put some mind to it and without any doubt, you will come up with a unique present.

We suggest to always focus on what they need. Practical gifts tend to be more appreciated when some time passes and that person is using a particular item daily. The truth is that most people don’t know what they want, but you can spot what they need in a moment.

Make them smile with your token of appreciation. This can be very simple with a present, cute and silly things are all around you. You know where to “tickle” them to do it, every one of us has a week spot for things he or she found funny.

Your personal touch should be added. Write a short, witty message. Sometimes this written message is the thing the recipient will cherish the most.


An important note to remember is, not to give the same presents to your friends. You can quickly forget the order in which you gave them and unfortunately repeat it to the same person. Keep track of your gifts, I learned it the hard way!
