A gift for that special someone is something which is rather personal in its nature, much like the relationship itself, so nobody could ever lay claim to having all the answers as to exactly what to get that special someone. There are however some guidelines which will give you a nice push in the right direction, but the rest is really up to you — the personalisation aspect of making the final selection.
Here are 10 ideas for such gifts for that special someone which you’ll be hard-pressed to go wrong with, really:
1. A DVD/Blu Ray Box Set of Their Favourite TV Series
Sure, they can always subscribe to a service such as Netflix, ShowMax or any other content-on-demand service, but if you present their favourite series as a DVD or Blu Ray box set to that special someone, you make things physical and give them a physical object which they will always associate with you. DVD box sets are known to have some extra features as well, such as special behind-the-scenes footage and other “deluxe edition” features.
2. Health Spa Retreat
If you want to you can even tag along, but a health spa retreat will always come as a welcome gift.
3. Weekend Getaway
Book a weekend getaway for the both of you and spend some quality time in each other’s company.
4. Specialist Gift
If your significant other has a hobby or a craft they’re into, get them a specialist gift, e.g. a traveller’s scratch map for that special someone who’s a keen globe trotter.
5. Concert Tickets
Another gift which the two of you can enjoy together. Everybody has a set of favourite artists they’d love to go and see performing live.
6. Fragrance Set
As long as it doesn’t completely revolt your partner or induce some allergic reactions, you have every right to pick out a fragrance for them which YOU like. They can always just wear it at home when hanging out with you if they don’t want to wear it out in public.
7. A Book
If you don’t know what book your partner would like to read next, you might need to put in more effort to make the relationship work. Otherwise you can never go wrong with a good book.
8. A Practical Gift
Look closely at your special someone’s life and try to see if there’s anything in particular which is missing. Practical gifts simply make the lives of the recipient easier in some or other way, even if in the tiniest of ways. Something like an umbrella which synchronises with their Smartphone is a good example for someone who has a habit of misplacing their umbrella knowing full well that they live in an area where it rains a lot.
9. A “Kick-Starter” Gift
If your partner has been going on about starting an exercise regime for instance, something like a Fitbit wrist band activity-tracker will come across as a very thoughtful gift to help them kick-start their intentions.
A wallet for the guys or a handbag for the ladies — because you can never have enough of those, can you?
