1. Write a card - Adding a personal touch to you gift
Something that many often forget. A gift accompanied by a card can be perceived as more personal. You don't have to write an entire novel (unless you want to). A short greeting is enough, but it should preferably be slightly longer than just "To Amanda from Rasmus."
2. The importance of wrapping
A nice gift poorly wrapped or not wrapped at all can seem sloppy and thoughtless. Make sure the wrapping matches the quality of the gift itself.
3. Explain the thought behind
The most important aspect of giving a gift is the thought behind it. Make sure to explain it to the recipient, either verbally or by writing it in a card. Explain that you've noticed that the person always wears silver or that the bracelet should match the watch she always wears.
4. Buy flowers
Who doesn't love flowers? A bouquet of flowers alongside the gift gives an even greater impression than the beautiful wrapping. If "WOW" is the reaction you want to achieve, we suggest a really big bouquet. The bigger, the better. A bouquet in white and green is often a safe choice.
5. Choose the right opportunity
If you give your gift at the wrong time, it is easy for the details of the gift to go unnoticed. Choose the occasion carefully and with that said, wouldn't it be fantastic to surprise the recipient when they least expect it? For example, on Friday evening after a busy work week. If you have bought a Christmas present for a very special person, it may feel nicer to give it on Christmas Eve morning when it is just the two of you and not the family or all the other Christmas presents stealing its focus. The same goes for other gifts. Choose an occasion (if possible) so that it does not become one of the crowd.
6. Buy multiple items in one theme
If you want to give several things, they can be part of a theme. The theme can be connected to a trip you are going to make, a special occasion or items for an entire outfit. Jewelery is best bought in matching sets. Do not choose different colors for the jewelry. Also, don't buy two bracelets or two necklaces. Choose, for example, a pair of earrings and a necklace.
