If you’re looking to make someone happy on their birthday or for a special occasion, you may be looking at gifts that you can give them this year. If you’ve been in this person’s life for a while, perhaps you’ve given them a plethora of gifts and need new ideas. Here are a few considerate gifts to give someone this year:
A birthday gift delivery
Whether this looks like a birthday card and some yummy treats or a bouquet of flowers with a kind note, a birthday gift delivery scheduled for first thing in the morning is a great way to get someone’s special day started off right. Birthday surprises are always a good idea, whatever they may be.
House Cleaning services
While this may not be a gift for everyone, for the person who needs it, it can be a great way to help them out. For example, a friend may be having a tough time, whether with their mental health or with a heavy workload.
They may find it impossible to keep up with their chores, and with a gift of housecleaning, they won’t have to. Maybe they’re good to go on the housecleaning, but they could use some help with the landscaping. Check out what they may appreciate the most before investing in services for your friend or loved one.
A trip voucher
Who doesn’t love going on a trip? If you know that a trip is long overdue for a friend of yours, consider getting them a trip voucher so that they can have a break from their lives and enjoy a new location. Whether you have extra air miles to spare or you simply buy them a ticket to a destination that you know that they’d enjoy, this is a considerate gift that is bound to put a smile on their face.
A whiskey subscription
If your loved one likes whiskey, don’t hesitate to order a whiskey subscription where they’ll get to try different whiskeys every month. Some subscriptions may even include engraved whiskey glasses, but if they don’t, you can always order some yourself to go along with the subscription.
Don’t worry if your loved one doesn’t enjoy a cup of scotch or whiskey—there are also plenty of wine subscriptions to choose from, as well. Honestly, there are subscriptions for almost anything under the sun, so whatever type of thing you know that they’d love to receive more of (every month), order it for them.
While this may seem like an odd suggestion, it’s the perfect gift for someone who has just moved into their new home. Whether it’s your child who is attending college and moving out on their own or a friend who is starting fresh from scratch, everyone needs kitchen products to get going in their new home.
We all have to eat, right? So, invest in some great items for their kitchen and see them smile. While this may ruin any surprise, you could also ask your loved ones what they need. Either purchase the item(s) yourself or give them a gift card to shop at the home goods store that they love best.
As you shop around for a gift for your friend, think about the kind of gift they’d appreciate the most. This may look like a trip abroad, or it may look as simple as sending them some goodies for their morning treat. You know what will make them smile, so give them a gift but realize that whatever you give them, the gesture of giving is always something that is appreciated.
