Before you even start browsing, it’s important to decide what your budget is. This will help you better categorise the type of gift you should look for. If you’re trying to spend a little less, you may not want to look at big-ticket items like a bike, guitar or television. You should then ask yourself the following questions about the person:
- Is there anything they need? Is the person you’re buying for struggling financially or lacking homeware necessities? This will make your birthday gift buying easy – maybe you can give them cash, a gift voucher or the missing dish drying rack they’ve been complaining about? Just sayin’.
- Do they have any pets or children? Someone who enjoys the company of their pets or is a new parent might appreciate a gift which caters to this. For instance, a new dog blanket.
- Do they have any hobbies or play a sport? Hobbies are great inspiration for gift ideas. If the person you’re buying for is an avid reader, you could buy them an e-book reader to make their collection easier to manage. For the more athletically gifted of us, some new gym gear or the latest item of clothing from their favourite sports retailer could be an ideal choice.
- Do they have any addictions or obsessions? It’s not hard to find the answer to this question if you know this person well. Think about their favourite television shows or topics of conversation they always bring up and then search for gifts accordingly. If they spend all their time in the gym, the latest exercise supplement may be an option.
- What are your fondest memories of them? Presents, whether they’re for a birthday, a thank you, to say congratulations or for Christmas, are so much better with a personal touch. Think of your relationship with the person and what you two love to do together. Or, think of a memory you share and buy them a gift related to this. This can be embarrassing or happy, it doesn’t matter! As long as it’s a good memory, you’re sure to have found a winner.
