A few posts ago I started the series #christmaswithalittlesunshine and I´m very happy about how well you seem to like it! (Click here for my last post on what to get the writer in your life) Don´t worry if you think those are the only ideas and tips I can give you, because I have a lot more planned for you. Including this post which is about giving options as gifts. If you´re thinking “How could I give options as gifts?!” then read on and I´ll show you!
Sometimes you don´t know what the person you´re giving a gift to really wants. What you do know most of the time are their interests. Things they like. The great thing here is that you don´t know exactly what they like. I´ll give you a few examples, to make things clearer.
Say you want to give someone a perfume for christmas or you know the person loves good smells, but you don´t know which scent exactly they like. What about giving them a gift-card for a store nearby that sells only perfumes?! That would be paradise for them and they could choose the smell they really like.
Another example would be a music lover. You know the person loves music, all kinds of music. You also know that they have a gigantic selection of CDs at home (I know CDs are pretty much out, but nevertheless it is a good idea to bring back that tradition…) or they spend so much money on buying music via iTunes, that you have the impression they own everything already. But don´t you worry, a gift card to a music store or a iTunes card may just be the thing they wanted.
If you´re not convinced yet, here´s another one, a little bit different. Say your girlfriend is always totally stressed out, maybe she is pretty successful and has a lot on her hands, maybe she just does too many things or maybe she´s just had a really hard time lately. Nevertheless you want to give her something she´ll totally love and maybe will also help her relax and get her mind off things. If you think that´s impossible, check out these options. Give her a massage gift card to a very good massage saloon, or learn to do massages and give her a gift card for endless massages from you;-). Or you could give her a gift card to 10x Yoga at the local yoga studio/gym. Another option is taking her on a weekend trip someplace she´s always wanted to go, or if your budget doesn´t allow it, just a weekend someplace where you live that is still not your home, so something different (a lake/a mountain/the sea…).
If you didn´t find any ideas in these three examples, here´s a list of different gift card ideas.
Gift cards for…
- a book store
- a night out at a restaurant
- her favorite makeup store
- his favorite electronics store
- an art exhibition
- a massage
- a 3 months gym membership
- a haircut (there are two possibilities on what most girls do when they´re upset: go shopping or get a new haircut-this is an old wisdom of the french, which is true for most of the rest of the feminine world as well)
- the cinema
- a concert
- a dance class
I hope this helped you out! Let me know in the comments down below if you´re a big gift card giver or if you prefer presence as presents, like Marquessa said on a previous post of mine. Until then
