When you’re shopping for a gift for someone. What are you doing? Don’t worry this isn’t a trick question. What I’m asking from myself, and you dear reader. Simply take a moment and acknowledge that. Giving someone a gift is an act of love. It’s something you do when you love someone. Now, I don’t know about you. But when I’m doing something for my loved one. I tend to put way too much pressure on myself. Thoughts race through my head. “Oh, I hope they like this.” “ I hope I made the right choice here.” This just goes to show that when you’re doing something for someone you love. It is easy to overthink things. You want to do right by that person. You want to get someone something completely indispensable. Something that they’ll remember forever. Hey, I get it. It’s a tall order, and you’d be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed. But worry not! For, you are not alone! Yes my dear reader, because I have danced this dance about a dozen times. And fortunately, I have learned a couple of key moves along the way. So come with me, as we dive into the world of gift-giving. And hopefully, we’ll discover together a perfect gift for that precious person in your life!
A Lovely Locket
When we’re talking about the world of customizable gifts. Few stand as timeless as an engraved locket. There is just something so romantic about a classic clasped locket with your wife, or girlfriend’s name engraved into it. While discussing the subject visions immediately come to mind of romantic imagery. A young soldier going off to war, his girl unsure of when she’ll see him again slips him her locket. Inside there’s a picture of her with a single phrase etched into its bronze surface. The phrase says. “Don’t forget me.” And with a memento like this; how could anybody? Yes, a locket holds that much power and romanticism in our culture. It not only creates a memory. But somehow also creates a moment. A moment in time frozen by pure feeling. Something that no matter when the person receiving it opens it. It brings them right back to that special time. Where they received a locket from the person they loved the most. Thus making a locket an incredible gift for someone that you love!
Cool, Crazy, Custom Pins!
Okay, so maybe a locket isn’t perfect for everybody. Maybe, the person you’re buying this present for isn’t going off to fight some far-off war in some distant land. Heck, maybe they just don’t even really like lockets. Well, that’s okay! Because this next entry is for the more casual, and alternative dressing among us. My suggestion is to get the person in your life a custom lapel pin. Something that says this is me. Something that they can pin to any jacket, and immediately it becomes their jacket. Pins are perfect for this! They give that pop of color and uniqueness that define one’s style, and lets them stand out from the crowd! Not only that but if the person you’re buying this for. Happens to be a fan of superheroes, science fiction, or almost any fandom for that matter. Well, you’re in luck! Because there is probably a pin for you! This is why pins make such a great gift. Because you can get one that sings the singular interests of the person you’re buying for! Letting them know that not only do you care enough to get them a gift but also that you know them enough to know exactly what kind of pin would be perfect for them!
A Snuggly Surprise
For the next entry into our list, I want to lower the steaks a little. Earlier in this article, we talked about long-lasting love, and knowing someone so well you know exactly what to give them. But what if we’re talking about getting a gift for a more casual recipient? What if we have a new friend for that we need a christmas gift? Something that’s amazingly nice, but doesn’t hold the same cultural weight as some of our previous entries. Well, I’ve got just the thing for you! Try getting your friend a monogrammed bathrobe! This is a snuggly incredible option that will keep your friend warm in any early morning. Plus, if you have their initials monogrammed onto it. It becomes something just for them! This is an awesome present for those new friends in your life!
