Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be challenging. Ensure the right item is selected by thinking outside of the box. Following are four unique gifts any person will treasure.
Couples often have a specific word or phrase that has significant meaning to them, and the same may be true for other pairs also. Why not create a piece of personalized jewelry that contains this word or phrase somewhere on it, whether it be incorporated into the actual piece or engraved on it somewhere? This is a great way to show the bond between the pair and have the reminder of what the word or phrase means to them at all times.
Consider an engraved ring for a husband or wife with the date the couple met or were married. Furthermore, children greatly appreciate a piece of jewelry that commemorates a special occasion in their life with the date engraved on the jewelry. These are only two of the many ways a piece of personalized jewelry can be presented as a gift and cherished by the loved one for years to come.
A LinkedIn study found that approximately 75 percent of workers state they would rather have an experience than a physical gift. This not only reduces the number of items in the person’s home but the memories that are created last a lifetime. Gifts of this type allow the person giving the gift and the one receiving it to feel more connected and closer, and the gift can be anything the person might desire.
Conduct a Treasure Hunt
Create a treasure hunt for a loved one. For example, a husband may leave a clue that brings back memories of the couple’s first date. When the wife arrives at the location, something that is reminiscent of this date will be there for her to find. Repeat this process several times to create a hunt that she’ll love with the end result being a special gift to mark the current occasion.
The same can be done with a child or other family member. For example, a treasure hunt may be created for an elderly family member. With each clue, the individual must determine which family member is being referred to and this is a great way to celebrate a family reunion with loved ones who have not seen each other for an extended period of time.
A New Hobby
Consider exploring a new hobby together, one a husband and wife will enjoy engaging in or a parent and child. Both people learn something new and often have fun while doing so. Research shows engaging in a hobby together can help minimize conflict in a marriage while also reinforcing the idea that the husband and wife are a team.
Participating in a hobby can also help to bring a parent and child together. Going to take part in the hobby provides the parent and child with quiet time to have meaningful discussions without making either person feel as if he or she is being forced to converse for hours on end. While engaging in the hobby, the focus can be on fun rather than serious things.
These are only a few of the countless ideas for special gifts that loved ones will fall in love with. Be creative while taking their interests and personality into consideration. When you do so, you’ll find your gift is a huge hit and one they will be talking about for years to come.
