How to choose the perfect gift?

Giving gifts is always so nice, but how hard is it to choose them. It takes a lot of running around and racking our brains. It is the gift that says how we feel about the person, how well we know them and how much they mean to us. And even a high cost of the gift does not always guarantee that it will be appreciated. So, how to choose the right gift to sincerely please the people dear to you, and at the same time to enjoy themselves.

A team of scientists recently conducted a study that showed that most of us prefer gifts that somehow reflect the personality of the giver. A total of 122 people participated in the experiment. All of them received a gift of music on itunes from their friends. As a result, those who received music tracks that matched the tastes of the giver were very happy. For those for whom the donor tried to “adjust” the music, the gift did not bring much joy.

Very unexpected, isn’t it? Do not let yourself be confused. We have highlighted 6 ideas for the perfect gift, following which the recipient will be over the moon.


What to give to someone who seems to have everything? Well, of course emotions! Adrenaline, fun and even expanding their own horizons, skills and abilities. This can be a parachute jump, a hot air balloon flight, horseback riding lessons, carting or photography lesson, there are tons of options, or unusual items: a sketchbook with black pages or magic elixir. Go for it! Turn someone’s world upside down. A great gift can be found here

A gift with a story

Gifts that evoke warm memories are especially valuable and enjoyable. They should be reminiscent of a pleasant event or period of life. Such a gift is given to very close people with whom you share a common history. This can be “her favorite childhood teddy bear,” which she somehow accidentally told you about, or something that reminds you of the place where you met.


Handmade gifts require more time and creative effort. Such a surprise is sure to prove valuable to the recipient. It is not for nothing that our mother always told us in our childhood that the best gift was made with our own hands. Make a card, bake a cake, write a letter, the real thing, and put it in an envelope. Put a piece of yourself into the gift. And what if you really want to give something unique and special, but you’re not the most creative person, or simply do not have time to create something worthy? There is a solution – you can always buy it. Handmade things are very popular now. Online shopping is not only easier and more convenient, but also unlimited choice.


Unexpected gifts without any reason are most often the most pleasant. And the secret is the effect of surprise. It often happens that we are pleased not so much with the gift itself as with the way in which it was presented. Just think through everything to the smallest detail, otherwise you risk being exposed.

Heartfelt congratulations

The wishes enclosed in the gift – for example associated with the gifted object – significantly increase its value, because you are well thought out about your greeting. A postcard or a variety of goodies with the right inscription can say it all for you.

The right thing

When people know each other well (desires, interests, passions), the chance to “hit the spot” with a gift and present something that the recipient has long wanted, but could not afford, is very high. However, it is worth considering whether you do not put the gift in an awkward position. If you can not choose a particular option for a gift, you can stop at this decision
