Every year almost 5 million New Zealanders celebrate their birthday. That’s a lot of cakes, candles, beer, wine and of course, gifts!
Each year millions of people receive birthday gifts that range from the unbelievably awesome, right through to the stock standards of socks and undies, perfume, the token lotto ticket and of course the default, a box of Roses (which no one wants after Cadbury changed the recipes last year, talk about a PR nightmare… anyway, we digress!).
So, if you’re here reading this, it means you have chosen to bypass the default options (woohoo!), and are on the hunt for that perfect birthday gift. The good news is, we are here to help! Gift giving is kind of our jam (it’s what we do all day, every day!), and after a solid few years in the industry, we know a thing or two about what makes a standout gift.
Birthday gift ideas can be found anywhere online, but choosing the perfect one can be a real challenge, so here are some tips below.
- Think about their interests. Do they love gardening, like to pamper themselves with candles and lotions, or are they a whizz in the kitchen? These things can guide you in the direction of a gift which might be both useful and appreciated!
- Are you going to celebrate their birthday with them, or from afar? If you can’t be with them on their special day, think about birthday gifts which are easy to send to their home or work (or save yourself precious time and purchase from a company who can gift wrap and send the gift direct to their door!).
- If all else fails, keep it thoughtful yet generic with a birthday gift basket filled with lots of delicious food goodies (we haven’t yet met a person who doesn’t love food!).
- Presentation is everything (and don’t forget the gift card!). Once you’ve found your gift, make sure you take the time beautifully wrap it up – some nice gift paper, or a gift box is guaranteed to earn extra brownie points, and makes the gift feel that bit more special, regardless of what is inside.
