Popular Gift-Giving Occasions
Many occasions come up throughout the year leaving you to figure out what type of gift to purchase. You strive to find that perfect present that is both useful and meaningful. Whether the next big occasion is a birthday or the celebration of a new job, here are some ideas to make your gift-giving process effortless.
Your best friend just moved into a new house. Not sure what to bring her? Thoughtful gifts such as photograph frames always please a new home-owner. Flowers in a lovely vase will brighten up a new home instantly and once the flowers are gone, the vase can still be used.
Other great housewarming gifts include items personalized with the family name. Coasters, welcome mats, wall art, cookie jars, and even dishes can be monogrammed and make a heartfelt housewarming gift.
Some special friends in your life are tying the knot and you want the gift to be perfect? Begin by looking at their registry. Typically people register for wedding gifts they would like to receive.
If they did not register, help them start their marriage off right. Give them a night to remember before they take off for their honeymoon. Make reservations for them at a luxurious hotel room to enjoy their first night as a married couple. Don’t forget to check with the maid of honor to ensure they do not already have a room booked. Give the gift early so they can include it in their plans.
Gifts for the bridesmaids and groomsmen are typically given as a wedding remembrance and a token of appreciation for being a part of the big day. Designer sports mugs and duffle bags make fun and useful presents for your groomsmen. Other men’s gifts include monogrammed leather business card holders or passport holders.
Women’s gifts such as jewelry to be worn in the wedding, cosmetic bags, or jewelry boxes will show your bridesmaids how much you appreciate them.
Starting a new job can be exciting and intimidating. Either way, it is a life changing event that calls for a celebration. Help start friends off on the right foot by giving the perfect gift. Help them get groomed for the new gig with shaving accessories. The businesswoman will look professional with a new briefcase or tote. Try personalizing a gift that he or she can use like a mouse pad or business card holder. Any choice you make should send a message of congratulations and good luck.
