Choosing the Perfect Gift: Tips and Tricks

by Ankita Sehgal Freelance Blogger, Lives in New Delhi
Choosing a gift for someone can go either of the two ways: you are absolutely sure of what to buy the person or you have absolutely no idea what to gift them. There are a million questions that play around your head while choosing a gift like what do they need? What do they want? What if they already have this? Deciding on the perfect gift can be quite a task. 

No matter the age of the individual, the decision is a difficult one to make. However, you can eliminate certain gifts based on gender, age and how close you are to the individual. A well-thought gift, no matter how big or small, is always appreciated and regarded as a precious possession. 

If you are still left clueless about what to choose for a friend, partner or relative, we have you covered. We have listed below the ultimate tricks to help you choose the perfect gift for them all!

Need vs. Want: It is best to ask yourself what the person needs. Not the mundane requirements of life such as socks and soaps but things that add a certain fun element to their daily activities. For example, a mom could always use products that make life more efficient or easy going for them. A pedicure kit makes for something they have been planning for long but haven’t got the time to do so. These are general things that most people tend to overlook. 

Stalk the Individual: Now let’s be clear about what we mean by stalking here. We do not expect you to physically follow the person; not a great idea. What we mean is to stalk their social media. Look at the places they have visited, the articles they have shared or their Pinterest board. These places might give you certain clues and spark a fun idea in your mind. 

Personalize: Nothing speaks to a person more than a customized, personal gift. It shows that you really cared and know the individual well enough to be sure of such a present. You can look up websites like Initial Studio, that have a great collection of personalized gifts that can be imprinted with the initials of the person you are gifting the items to. Their customized gift boxes in India are a huge rage and make for the perfect present. 

Make it Grand: Gift wrapping is an art in itself. You can get really creative with how you pack your gifts. Make an event out of it and choose something out of the box. Rather than using the standard wrapping paper, you can opt for never-ending box theme wrapping or provide the individual clues to get to the gift like a scavenger hunt. This is sure to get the individual excited about the present they receive and add an element of fun to the gifts.
