The Christmas countdown has already begun. Card shops have their festive greeting cards on display. Supermarkets are filling their shelves with sharing tins of chocolate, and garden centres are setting up their winter wonderlands.

Whilst many prepare for Christmas, many of us have loved ones celebrating birthdays in the months, weeks and days before the festive day. As such, our attention is focused on providing them with the best gift.

Giving a gift can be exciting. However, it most certainly is challenging to find a memorable gift. Despite knowing the recipient’s taste like the back of your hand, it can feel like an impossible mission to find a gift that perfectly captures how much they mean to you.

If you find yourself struggling, here are a few tips to help you give a memorable gift to a loved one for their birthday.

Gift An Experience

Sometimes the best gifts to receive are not tangible objects. Some of the best gifts are memories made. Treat a loved one for their birthday to an experience. One that reflects their personality, a bucket list wish or a hobby of theirs.

Gifting an experience provides the recipient to create an unforgettable memory. One that they will cherish for a lifetime. You will always be remembered as the person who gifted them a unique experience that they will share stories about in the years to come.

Save Money And Go Homemade

Many of us have that one person who is challenging to buy presents for. They will either have everything or say that there is nothing they need. If you have this hard to shop for person in your life, consider going handmade. You can personalise it in a variety of ways. It could feature their favourite colours, saying, patterns, anything that you know they will love. If it doesn’t turn out quite as you hoped – it was the thought that counts!

With choosing to gift handmade presents, they are often less expensive than purchasing. Included in the price of an item is the time it took to make it. When you eliminate the time factor, you could save a bit of money.

Small Details Make A Difference

Why stop at personalising the gift or the card? Go the extra mile and look into personalised wrapping paper. Choosing customised wrapping is an additional layer to what is already a memorable gift.

Even creating a personalised party banner that has their name, picture and things that they love can make an impact. Online businesses, like Dom & Geri, allow you to create personalised wrapping paper. A big part of what makes a gift so memorable is all the small details involved.

Be Thoughtful With Your Choice

In the end, giving a memorable gift to a loved one for their birthday requires thought. Take the time to carefully think about what makes the person in your life the happiest. With whatever gift you decide to go with, if you have chosen or created, they will know the thought that went into it.

Giving a memorable gift for their birthday is a perfect way to show loved ones how much they mean to you.
