Giving Gifts in 2018

Giving gifts as an adult gets more and more difficult. As you and your friends start to grow your disposable income, you have the freedom to buy for yourself the things that would normally have to wait to be gifts. When birthdays, Christmas and other events from housewarming to Valentine’s Day roll around, it can leave you in quandary: what to get for the person who has everything?

Today we’re inspiring you with a few ideas for original gifts to give in 2018, so you’ll be everyone’s favourite friend.

Luxury

One way to give a fantastic gift that will keep on giving is to pick an aspect of your friend or partner’s life and inject a little luxury into it. Life is gruelling, and with the UK working longer and longer hours transforming the more routine parts of life into luxurious treats is a great way to claw back some ‘me-time’.

Pick a part of your friend’s life you know they value and think about how to make a little more special. If they value their grooming, a gift of some luxury aftershave is thoughtful and is something that will make them think of you every time they get ready to impress!

For the friend that loves a cup of coffee in the morning, you have plenty of options, from coffee subscriptions that will give them an exciting new flavour each week, to new coffee gizmos and accessories like the Aeropress!

Experiences

The gift you can guarantee a friend won’t have is a unique experience! Even if it’s something they’ve done before, treating them to hot air ballooning, or sports car driving is a treat they’ll be happy to revisit.

Of course, you’ll have to do a bit of research and careful though to fit the experience to the friend. Buying a flying lesson for some who suffers from crippling vertigo isn’t much of a present at all. If you want to give the gift of an experience, or tickets for something, but you’re not certain what would be a good fit, try talking to partners or family – find something they’ve always wanted to do but haven’t been able to, or something they love.

If it’s suitable for two, going with them is a great way to spend some quality time with a friend, and show them you really care. If you’ve treated them to theatre tickets, then buying dinner or some interval drinks is another little bonus present that makes the evening truly special for them!
