With the winter season almost upon us, this can only mean that Christmas is around the corner. While you might not want to get caught up in the festivities just yet – it is still November, after all – there’s nothing better than being prepared, so why not start planning what gift to buy for your loved one?
Choosing a gift for someone special can sometimes be tricky, especially if you have been buying them presents for the past few years. Of course, you can’t buy them the same thing more than once, so you are faced with the challenge of thinking of a completely new gift idea – and then there’s the possibility of them already owning the item you decide to purchase.
In order to make your Christmas shopping experience hassle-free, we’ve compiled a list of ways to choose the perfect gift for your loved one. Read on to make that special person in your life very happy on Christmas day:
Make a list of their interests
The first thing to do is make a list of the interests of the person you are buying for. This can be anything from their taste in music, fashion, beauty or any hobbies they have.
Once you have this list in front of you, it will be easier to think of gift ideas related to each interest. That way, you know that your special person is bound to love whatever you have chosen.
Making a list will also allow you to rule out any ideas that you may have initially thought of.
Include a special memory
Gifts are all the more heartfelt when they have sentimental value, so why not relate it to a moment that you treasure together? Think back to all the happy memories you share with your loved one and think of a way to tie it into your gift idea.
Upon opening your present, they will instantly recognise how much thought has gone into it and it will always remind them of you, making it truly unique.
It’s okay to stalk
If you are really struggling to come up with a great gift idea, don’t be afraid to check out the social media profiles of the person you are buying for. While you will no doubt already be familiar with these, looking through photos they have uploaded or been tagged in will help to refresh your memory on the type of clothes they like to wear and already own.
This will enable you to think of some fashion or beauty-related gift ideas that tie into their personal style.
Ask for advice
One of the most important things to bear in mind is that it’s okay to ask others for advice. While you may well be the closest person to your loved one, there’s no harm in asking for the opinions of their friends and family members.
You never know, they may even provide you with a vital piece of information that will help you on your way to buying the most perfect gift.
