Finding the perfect gift is a big task of difficulty and responsibility to achieve. What might be the best choice for you, might not be the same for the person you’re gifting it to. Gifting is a big game of choosing wisely between choices and preferences and the trillions of options that come along with it. The big question here is to know the ideas, themes, and preferences of the other person that you know they would like. Now, this question gets easier to answer if you have known that person for a long period of time but when it comes to gifting someone you've known only for a shorter period of time, the question gets harder to solve which is where hampers come into play.
Gift hampers have not just one but multiple things inside them based on a theme, giving your gift a sense of personalization. Now assuming you have known that person for a shorter period of time, you can either go for generic hampers like- birthday themed or chocolate-themed and keep it simple or you can step it up a little by choosing a particular themed hamper (color theme, specific show/character theme, event theme, etc) which would leave the receiver in awe of your efforts and that you knew about their likes and dislikes. Another plus point about hampers is that they come with many things inside them, out of which there might be something they would there for sure something they will like so you won't have to worry about them liking or disliking your gift since there would be something they can resonate with.
We have prepared a few pointers you can keep in mind while you set off to buy the PERFECT gift, make sure to read till the end of it!
GIFT IT LIKE THEM
When planning for a gift remember it is not about you, it is about them. It is about their likes and preferences and thus whichever choice you are going for, it should resonate with that person. For example, if you’re planning to give a food hamper you need to keep in mind the kind of food they would preferably like- spicy, sweet, crunchy, soft, etc. Their choice can be way different than what you would generally like so remember to not let judgments cloud you and choose the right option carefully.
NARROW DOWN YOUR OPTIONS
With the abundance of options available in the gifting market, choosing just one option is next to impossible. Therefore it is important to narrow down your options as much as you can. Start off by keeping the occasion in mind (whether it is for a birthday, anniversary, or a congratulatory gift). Then think about what that person likes or is most likely to like and similarly keep a track of their dislikes. Knowing what they wouldn't like also helps a lot in cutting down options and thus give you a clearer perspective.
WHAT’S THEIR STYLE
Different people hold different personas and thus have different styles to them. While some people only get attracted to colors, there are some who can't get outside the world of blacks and whites (yes we exist). Therefore to add an even more personal element to your gift, make sure to personalize it in the style of the person you are giving it to, You can change the wrapping sheet to something they would like or appreciate, change the packing style- basically modify the complete gift into something of their taste and likes. It would make them feel even more special when paying attention to the tiny details, and remember that no effort can go in vain when done with pure intention and good vibes.
