Why do we give gifts?
Whether it’s a birthday gift, Christmas gift, wedding gift or a gift for a new home – we give gifts to show our loved ones that we care. A good gift will make the recipient feel loved, appreciated, and spark a moment of joy.
Firstly – there’s no such thing as the perfect gift. The right gift will be different for everyone and there are many ways to show you care for someone. However, we believe there are some common themes to consider when choosing what to gift your loved ones.
Think about the person you have in mind. What brings them joy? What are their hobbies? What would be of value to them? What have they talked about buying (or not buying) for themselves? When you gift something personal, it shows the recipient you’ve listened to them and spent time thinking about them.
If you are searching for a gift for someone you don’t know that well, it’s always a good idea to think about what you would love to receive. If something would make you happy, it’s a safe bet that it would spark the same feelings in someone else.
If a great idea strikes you, don’t be afraid to give more than one person the same gift. And if you’re finding gift ideas elusive, why not give them the gift of choice with a gift card?
We’ve put together several curated gift collections to help you gift joyfully. Browse our categories below and simply click the links to discover our product selections. You might even spot a little something for yourself along the way…
