With Christmas literally just around the corner, I encourage you to stop and reflect before buying or gifting to those that you love.
Go a level deeper and really think about what they enjoy, need or use! The extra thought and effort will mean so much more than the gift itself!
The beauty of giving with love is that it doesn’t just have to be stuff, it can be so much more.
Here’s some simple ideas to help you find a truly personalised gift:
1. Book Lovers
Create a small pile of 2nd handbooks, all based around a similar topic, bundle them up, tie off with some ribbon and finish with some greenery from your garden
2. The Adventurers
Give the gift of experiences and memories, Red Balloon gift voucher is a great place to start or seek out some local adventures such as go-karting, ferry tickets to a local island, ziplining or indoor skydiving
3. Lovers of all things Green
Pot up a plant you have in your garden in a beautiful pot, gift someone a mini herb garden to keep near their kitchen or put a water plant into a beautiful, shaped bottle
A cooking class, the gift of some homemade meals to give them a night off, a handmade voucher for a picnic to a unique location, try your hand at a homemade relish or some rum balls, still stuck, Google “giftable food ideas”
5. Shared Experiences
Sip and Paint gift voucher, book in a dance class to try together, tickets to a sporting match, the theatre, or the movies
