Suggest me some gifting ideas, please!

I know this is perhaps not the right forum to discuss gifting ideas but I am at my wits end trying to decide what to get for my girlfriend’s birthday! She is someone who prefers personalised gifts and I am someone who has no clue about how to make it special that way! So, gents and ladies, please help me out!

I did number of gifts = age thingie once, have various small things gifted to her and at the end of the day a big gift. You could start with a nail polish, a lipstick, perfume, vouchers for books, shoppers stop vouchers, spa therapy, chumbak collectibles, greeting card… I could plan this one for you 😛

How about you cook for her?

Buy some nice handmade paper. Write down a nice letter to her. About how much she means to you. About how she has helped you grow as a person. About what great things you envisage for her. Sticks few pictures of the two of you. If she likes it, she can get it framed and hang it.

Personalised gifts really depend on the recipient. What is she into? Music/ books/ any fav hobbies or things. You’ll find plenty of diy ideas online once you decide on that. Eg: if she likes reading, you can make her bookends or even a table lamp. All the best!

Personalised bookmark is an amazing idea!! You can make more than one too if she’s a voracious reader

Awesome!

The most special of gifts are those that makes her feel that you know her so well. Think of what makes her happy or what was it she wanted sometime back but didn’t get, something on those lines. It need not be expensive, it need not be the regular line of gift items, need not be glitzy or glamorous. For example, for someone who loves reading, a rare old classic, which you may get for a pittance from a secondhand bookstore, will be priceless. It shows, your understanding of her and the effort you’re willing to put in to make her happy. That is personalising. Not the initials on the locket.

Just one Rose or a Hand Written Gratitude Letter is enough to make her day! It’s not how big the gift is, but how it is given. Give it with a smile, with positivity and a smile. If it’s given when they don’t expect it (like on their birthday), it will give you more points 🙂

Hi Roshan, In case you are based in Bangalore, I can come help you prepare a special meal cooked by you especially for you. That would sweep her off her feet completely I’m sure. If you are up to the challenge, that is 🙂 I also make customised book marks with beads and charms which are very pretty. Can customise something else for her as well depending on what her interests are. You can check out my FB page http://www.facebook.com/urmiesstore though all my products aren’t featured there as yet. Do contact me for some unique ideas.

I can barely boil water without injuring myself!
I am ashamed to say that I cannot cook to save my life!

Roshan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

Wow, Adan! That’s a very thoughtful and creative idea indeed! I am so pathetic at art work, I can barely hold a pair of scissors! But yes, I get what you mean. Thanks, mate!

Roshan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

Mayank..also maybe a personalised bookmark? How does that sound?

Roshan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

Haha! Thanks a lot Kavya! How about I plan a treasure hunt for her?

Roshan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

My partner does love reading! I suppose her favourite author is Jeffrey Archer..perhaps I could gift her a book set by the author, going by your suggestions..?

Adan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

Chill Roshan. It is very easy. You just have to wrap a paper around some random cards. The hard part is to find out the reasons as to why she is special to you and that too 50 of them (If you know what I mean). 😉

Adan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am

You can try this. Take a pack of cards, wrap each card with white art paper and write a reason as to why is she special to you on each card. Write as many as you can. Then make a hole on top of all the cards and fasten them with strings. Now try scattering the cards on a wall and now she has a nice wall hanger from her loved one. Its just an idea, you can experiment and clip pictures too.
