Giving great gifts is sometimes difficult. If you are not very close to the person you are buying for, it can be very tricky to know what they might appreciate and don’t have already. Here, we will look at the secrets to giving perfect gifts that the recipient is sure to love.  

Buying for children is often easier than buying for teenagers and adults. Kids usually appreciate their gifts a lot more and tend to have wide ranges of interests. It’s a good idea to consult the child’s parents to see if there is anything they want or need, or to ask what characters they are interested in. Finding the right gifts for 5 year old girls are usually quite easy to buy, as long as they don’t already have everything under the sun!  

It’s a good idea to always wrap a gift carefully, as opening it is part of the pleasure of receiving a gift. If you can, choose nice paper or envelopes and do your best to make it look great. This should be accompanied by a card or gift tag, with a personal and thoughtful message rather than just the one which was included already. Personalization makes any gift much more appreciated.  

Often, people prefer experiences to objects, so this could be a great gift idea. Find out if your friend’s favorite singer is doing a concert or treat them to a spa treatment if they have been feeling stressed recently. These types of experience are much more memorable than objects which might be used once or twice then forgotten about.  

Money and vouchers might be good for teenagers but for other age groups they’re usually best avoided. Gifting money lacks thought and gift vouchers can sometimes go to waste, especially if the recipient doesn’t shop at the store the voucher is for.
