Giving someone a gift should be a very special thing. However, what might seem very simple to some is actually incredibly difficult for others. No matter how well you know a person, it just happens sometimes that you are unable of thinking of a great gift for their birthday, wedding or celebration in general. You’ve known this person for years and yet you have no idea what to gift them in celebration of them getting their driver’s license or buying their first home. But you can’t show up at the home warming party empty handed either, so what do you do? Here are some of the top tips on how to gift someone, which hopefully will help you get a better understanding of what to look for in a gift for someone special.

It needs to be useful and practical

There are way too many gifts that just don’t serve any purpose. Sure, they might look cool, but after one use they are boring or straight up unusable. This kind of gift shouldn’t be made because it’s not as deep and impactful as a gift should be. Make sure that whatever you end up buying or giving someone as a gift, it will be something that they will be able to use time and time again. If it just ends up sitting on a table somewhere in the corner, it’s a failed opportunity.

Turning a gift into a surprise and when obvious is acceptable

Another trait of a great gift is its ability to surprise the one receiving it. Depending on the occupation hobbies or passions of the person that is receiving the gift, many of the “no-brainer” gift ideas will be too obvious to make a real impact. Try to be original and to get them something that will completely catch them off-guard.

On the other hand, there are also instances where being obvious is just the thing to do. Sometimes, obvious means getting them that one thing that you both know they need or want. The guessing game shouldn’t be a mandatory phase of the gifting process. If you know they really want something, or if you know of something they would really like, don’t hesitate to get it for the sake of keeping the surprise element alive. This is the part when you have to use your best judgment in order to decide whether or not the surprise part is worth it.

Invest in quality

The idea of a gift will make a deep impact, but it’s not enough on its own. Whatever you end up buying, make sure that you are investing in quality. So your friend likes biker jewelry? Don’t just get them a bag full of fake or cheap rings. Head over to Bikerringshop and get them that bishop ring or cross ring they’ve wanted. Remember, it’s about quality, not quantity.
