4 Tips to Ramp up your Gift Game This Year
- Hits: 131
It’s the same thing every year: you tell yourself that next year, your gifts are going to be truly awesome.
You’ll buy them weeks ahead of time, find the perfect gift for everyone you love, and you’ll even wrap them up as perfect as a professional! But something always seems to get in the way—if you don’t want that to happen again this year, consider these 4 shockingly easy tips to ramp up your holiday gift game this holiday season.
Tip: For partners, find something romantic—but not cheesy
It can be hard finding the perfect gift for the person you love, especially since a lot of romantic gifts tend to be on the cheesier side. If you don’t want your loved one to give you that all-too-telling grimace smile due to a gift that’s heavy on the cheese, opt for something that’s understated and romantic without being “too much.” For instance, the wooden You Complete Me puzzle is a fun, heart-shaped puzzle that looks elegant when put together instead of looking silly or cheesy. You can also opt for elegant photo frames like the Clipic (don’t forget to put a photo inside before wrapping) or a pre-made photo book filled with memories.
Tip: Take special care with your gift wrapping
How you wrap a gift is almost as important as what’s inside. A nicely done wrap is a way to show someone that you took the time and effort to make their present look nice. You can make a gift look nicer by adding unique writable stickers, such as Greeting Stickers; or even use a cool wrapping gift set, such as the Robot Gift Wrap that will make your present look like a miniature robot. And don't forget about the card! A nicely done card--either sent on its own or attached to a gift--is a "must" for the holiday season. A Greetings Card Kit will help you put together personalized cards that people will cherish.
Tip: Use ribbons to wrap paper-free gifts or boxes
If you’ll be gifting something that can’t be neatly wrapped in wrapping paper (such as a candle, bottle of wine, or anything else that looks messy when wrapped) then you can still class it up with a nice ribbon. Ribbons like Gifted - Elastic gift wrap are simple, elegant and perfect for tying together a gift that you don’t plan on wrapping up. Remember, it’s better to have a simple nicely tied ribbon than crinkled, messy wrapping paper on a gift you give to someone.
Tip: Look for winter themed gifts as stocking stuffers and small gifts
If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or other small gifts, why not look for winter-themed presents that people will love to display around the house? Items like winter-themed snow globes, a nice Christmas ornament or cute Winter Wonder Magnets are perfect for people who want to decorate for winter.
This holiday season, don’t sweat the small stuff: follow these above tips and your gift-giving game will be truly on top.
