Finding the perfect gift is hard - like really hard! Luckily, we have our unique gifts UK - buying guide to help you out. The last thing you want is for the person to open your present with a strained smile because someone else brought them the exact same thing!
How to Choose Unique Gifts UK
In order to find unique gifts, choose quirky and unconventional gifts that will leave a lasting impression. Whether it's for a birthday, anniversary, or special occasion, selecting unique gifts allows you to show your loved ones you care. But, how do you find unique gifts? Read on to find out.
Embrace Their Interests
Thinking about the persons interests is guaranteed to help you find a gift that will be a hit. Consider the recipient's hobbies, passions, and unique traits.
The Perfect Gift for a Writer
If your sister loves writing, a notebook could be the perfect choice! I would know, I'm always jotting down notes and love it when I get a notebook for my birthday each year. You could check out our awesome range of cute notebooks and cute stationery to find the perfect gift for a budding writer.
Great Gifts for a Coffee Addict
When buying a gift for a coffee lover, you're going to want to stay away from... you know... actually coffee. Chances are they've already found a brand they love. Instead, choose cute coffee mugs. A mug is a practical gift that they'll get lots of use out of!
Are they Always Glued to Their Phone
If the person you're buying for always has their phone on hand - consider a cute iPhone case. You'll have to do some digging to make sure you get the correct case to find their phone but it could be a big win. If they haven't got an iPhone or have an older iPhone model, you could even buy them a new one - hint, hint mom and dad.
Think Outside the Box
Gotta admit, I love a bit of outside the box thinking - probably why I've written this article. You can use that outside the box thinking to find that perfect gift. Instead of thinking of the obvious things they need, go a little different. You might choose a unique personalised gift, like our personalised bags. They might expect a personalised mug but a bag is something different.
Explore Independent Sellers
When you think of independent sellers, your mind mind jump to that gift shop down the street. But, hey, times have changed and now there's lots of Independent sellers online. Just like Lava Your Style - we're an independent seller of quirky gifts. Sorry for the shameless plug right there - I couldn't resist. We even have the Lava Your Style Etsy Shop.
I'm doing some of that outside-the-box thinking right now. This thought just came to me as I was writing this - but turn your gift into an experience. I'm not talking out spending lots of money on a holiday or anything. I was thinking along the lines of buying cute blankets and then hosting a movie night where you can snuggle up in them or buying cute coffee mugs and hosting a coffee tasting session. That way, they get something to open and get a fun day, too. I really like this idea, I'm doing it for my partner's b'day... shhhh.
Don't Forget the Presentation
You've chosen your gift - the next thing you need to do is wrap it up. Invest in some super cute wrapping paper and a lovely bow to finish things off. Alternately, opt for an eco-friendly option and choose wrapping paper that can be recycled.
We hope you've enjoyed reading our unique gifts UK buying guide. Choosing a quirky gift is an opportunity to let your imagination run wild and bring a touch of whimsy and joy to your loved ones' lives. Remember to consider presentation, experiences and outside-the-box thinking to find that special gift.
