A few weeks before Christmas and many of us are still scrambling around trying to choose the perfect gift for our loved ones. In many instances, looking for the right gift may be challenging and we sometimes spend hours in malls deciding what to buy. Why not be unique and think out-of-the-box this year. There are different ways to choose the perfect gift but they require you to be creative and resourceful. Remember that gift-giving is a way to communicate with your family or friends. Here are some tips that you can use to make the Christmas celebration extra special.
An event for a present
One way to make Christmas gifts special is to be creative with the packaging. Rather than giving them gifts in ordinary gift wrappers, think of the gift-giving experience as an event that will make it more memorable. Try to hide the gift and send your loved ones on a scavenger hunt to find it. Hide the secret message in places and give them clues until they find their gifts. Kids love this game and can be a memorable experience for them. What makes this even more interesting? You will have something to do and keep your loved ones busy on Christmas day.
Give them an unforgettable experience
There may be books or novels that they love. Why not be unique and buy them the movie or the movie poster. You can also treat the family to a fun and exciting day at the arcade or movie.
Know the interests of your loved ones
Each one of us has our own passion or interests. Choose a present that they will truly love and define who they are. Take time to list down as many things as you can. This will give you some cool ideas on the presents that are personal and thoughtful. If one of them is suffering from an ailment, give a present that will help alleviate his/her condition. This may be a book, a movie, or an addition to his/her collections. Hurrah! These will be a life-changing experience for them.
Remember the past
Maybe one of your loved ones has graduated recently. Isn’t it great if you can borrow the diploma so you can have it framed? This can be displayed in their homes along with the family photos for a wonderful wall gallery. You can also create a photo collage that features childhood photos. Whatever the gifts may be, the most important thing is to have a nostalgic Christmas celebration.
Personally ask what they need
This is probably the easiest way to choose the perfect gift. Ask the person what they still need and get it yourself. You may have a younger sister who is in nursing school. Why not give her a nurse student survival kit that you have put together. The key here is to think broadly when it comes to the presents that you will give. A fur parent may need something for their babies. Get their pets something and wrap it creatively to make the opening of gifts more fun and interesting.
If all else fails, you can practice your spying skills and stalk them in your social media accounts or friends. As such, you will have a clear idea of what they want as gifts.
