How to Choose the Perfect Gift

Is there anything worse than receiving a gift and having to fake a smile? Oh, wait… Being the receiver of said fake smile is definitely worse. Gift giving love language is a real thing and navigating it can be hard. After all, is there anything better than winning a gifts exchange?

In fact, according to a study by the Association for Psychological Science, gift givers are naturally prone to being selfish. They often prefer to give expensive, tangible, and unexpected gifts. Why? Well, because they want to see the recipient's joy during the gifts exchange when it's opened. 

Don’t get us wrong, we totally love seeing how happy gifts make those we give them to. However, we also want our gifts for her or gifts for him to be practical. That’s why the right gift ideas make the job so much easier!

At Celebrimo, we’ve got a different philosophy when it comes to gifting. We say let’s take the best of both worlds! Our own gift giving love language is all about choosing gifts that are perfectly suited to our recipients, and ones that are practical. 

Whether it is Christmas, a birthday, or for no reason at all, the gifts exchange experience brings joy and happiness. When you’re choosing your gifts, don’t forget to think about how you will wrap or package them. This little bit of extra effort really goes a long way when it comes to creating that super-special gift giving experience. 

How to Choose the Perfect Gift

More often than not, the ideal gift doesn’t need to be expensive. You don’t have to spend a fortune in the gifts shop to show the special people in your life that you care. The thoughtful gifts are often the ones we love to receive the most - can you agree? Also, thanks to the internet, we can skip those long gifts shop queues and browse online, which means way more options. 

So, what goes into choosing the right gift? Follow these top tips below. 

Make a List of All the Things the Person is Interested In

This is a great place to start when it comes to choosing the right present! Spend a few minutes brainstorming a list of your special person’s interests, and then you can start thinking of a few gifts that they’ll love. If they are a coffee lover, then our coffee mugs with sayings will be perfect!

You don’t need to get a gift for every interest, but you’ll get a good idea of what they might like the most. Heck, you might even come up with a number of awesome ideas, and then you know what to get for years to come! 

Ask Yourself What the Person Needs

While getting a prezzie you want is always fabulous, sometimes getting something you need is super helpful! So, with this in mind, have a think about what the person you’re buying for might need. For example, your workaholic bestie might need coffee mugs for friends to make her day that much sweeter. 

There are tons of products out there to help people run their lives more efficiently, and these products can make wonderful gifts. Celebrimo’s coffee mugs with sayings and wine glasses with sayings are practical, but also quirky and fun! Let’s face it, can you ever have too many ceramic mugs and dishwasher-safe wine glasses? We think not!

Do a Little Stalking

A little social media stalking never hurt anybody, especially when you’re trying to find gifts for her! Most people have a wishlist on Amazon, and imagine how happy they'll be if you somehow found just the thing they wanted without even asking. They may have even forgotten they wanted themselves! 

Facebook and Instagram are also great places to look for clues. What brands and product posts is this person engaging with? Like we said, stalking is your go-to when trying to find gifts for her. 

Include a Bit of Yourself in the Gift

The gift is from you, so don’t forget to include a little of yourself in it. Maybe this is a special card you’ve made or a personalized note you have written and included. You know your special people best, and what they’d love to receive from you. You might also want to think of the type of things you’d like to see in the prezzies you receive. 

A gorgeous, dishwasher-safe wine glass filled with your recipient's favorite candy, or sweet treats you enjoyed together is a fab gift idea for her. A ceramic mug filled with homemade cookies is another! The options really are endless.

We know the feeling of being fresh out of ideas! What do you get the person who has everything? The answer to this question is Celebrimo, of course!
