The Art of Gifting

Gifting is more than just a transaction; it's a beautiful expression of love and appreciation for the people who matter most in our lives. It's not about the price tag or the extravagance; it's about the genuine gesture that makes someone feel truly known. I know for myself, when my boyfriend brings me home a little chocolate in a flavour he thinks I’ll like, or a candle in one of my favourite scents, it makes me feel known, seen, and loved.

There's nothing better than reciprocating that feeling. Whether it's picking out a new pillowcase for a friend who mentioned needing one or finding the perfect dairy-free chocolate for a lactose-intolerant boyfriend, the act of gifting becomes a way to show we've been paying attention, that we care, and that we want to make their day a little brighter.

 But let's set the record straight – gifts should never feel obligatory or pressured. Instead, they should come from a place of genuine thoughtfulness and consideration. Here are a few top tips to keep in mind:

  1. Think about their needs: Remember the last time you caught up with them? Did they mention something they needed but hadn't gotten around to getting yet? That's your cue to step in and make their life a little easier.
  2. Stay within your budget: The value of a gift isn't determined by its price tag. Everyone's financial situation is different, and what matters most is the sentiment behind the gesture. Whether it's a handmade card and a bath bomb or a more lavish present, what counts is the thoughtfulness behind it.
  3. Go in as a group: Pooling resources with friends or family members can allow you to create something truly special without breaking the bank. It's a way to show that you've all been thinking about the recipient and wanted to collaborate on something meaningful.
