When it comes to buying gifts for our friends and family, we always tend to think that more, is better. The more gifts that we buy them, the happier they will be, and so the gift buying experience will have become a success. The opposite is actually true, because people appreciate one single gift more, if there has been a lot more thought and care behind it. In order to make the people that are receiving the gifts happier, you need to add some positive influence into their life, and one way to do this is to make the gift more personalised.
Personalised gifts in Australia are becoming increasingly popular, because they add a touch of love and care, to any present. People still continue to buy things like gift cards, and gift vouchers, and all you’re doing when you buy these, is to pass the problem of shopping for a gift, onto the person who is celebrating an important day. It’s like handing cash to someone, and telling them to buy their own gift. It completely lacks the personal touch, and the recipient knows it.
People also buy what we call, ‘gift experiences’, and these consist of paying for a service like a massage, and you present the recipient with a voucher. However, the date has not been set out, and so once again, you’re leaving the organisation up to them. This is very lazy on your part, and it shows that you didn’t put any thought into this present. This is why personalised gifts are the right choice every single time.
We also run into issues when we ask the recipient what it is that they would like. We always get the usual answers indicating that they don’t want anything, when we just want them to come right out with it, and tell us exactly what they want. Buying a gift for someone can be a complete nightmare, so try to keep it simple, and get them something from your heart. The perfect gift for that is a personalised gift.
If you hand the recipient something that you have really thought about, and pondered over, they will appreciate it a lot more. If you add an engraving to the item, with a special message and words of love, then this will increase the value of the gift tenfold. By putting their initials, or their name, onto a special item, makes all the difference in the world.
