There are plenty of gift ideas out there that work for everyone. Here are a few general ideas:
- A personalised mug, t-shirt, or glass
- Gift cards or certificates, food
- Something homemade
Now, if those seem a little vague, don’t worry. We’ll now be expanding on a few of those ideas.
Almost anything personalised is a fantastic gift. Do they like their beer? Personalised pint. Do they like their coffee? Personalised mug. Do they wear a lot of ties? Personalised tie tack. Do they run a lot? Personalised t-shirt.
There are hundreds of sites out there, like giftstolast.co.uk that offer a lot of options that can be personalised and make it perfect for whomever you’re giving it to.
These are not only appreciated by everyone from children to grandmas, but they are versatile. You just can’t go wrong. You can try and think of a place they like and buy from there, or if you aren’t sure, pick a place YOU like and give them some menu suggestions.
Children will probably be content with some pancake house or fast food chain. A teen would probably be happy with the same, or a gift certificate for ice cream or pizza. And an adult would be delighted with any of the above and any restaurant in America, basically.
You just can’t go wrong with food. If you’re really doubting someone’s taste, or they seem picky, buy one from an ice cream or donut shop. Those are pretty universal likes.
Now, not all gift cards are food. You can branch out and try a gift card to the supermarket for groceries, money to the mall to get a new pair of jeans or shoes, and more.
If they are music fanatics, consider getting them an iTunes or Google Play gift card.
If you’re trying to find something for your mom or grandmother, the best bet is handmade. Whether it be a simple card, a pop up card you find instructions to on YouTube, or just a hand painted Mason jar with flowers, she is sure to love it because it came from you.
If it’s your dad, husband, or grandpa, consider making or painting him a wooden box that you can fill with beer or his favorite drink.
There are hundreds of options for gifts, and it’s just a matter of seeing what fits in your budget. It’s not even really that hard to choose something that they will like. You just have to think a little bit more universally to find something that will satisfy the gift need.
Now, get out there, and gift! Stop telling people you don’t know what to get them, and get them something meaningful or fun! Do it!
