How to find the perfect birthday present

So, It’s birthday time! You’re super excited about buying that perfect gift that’ll make that special someone smile from ear to ear. But there’s one problem… You have no idea what to get them!

Finding the right birthday present, whether if it’s for a spouse, a child or a best friend, can be very challenging. Sometimes you just don’t know where to begin, especially when the birthday is just around the corner.

But here’s some good news!

We’ve made it easier for you to find that perfect birthday present or even a beautiful birthday card by sharing some quick tips that we are sure will help you to make the right choice:

1. Whose birthday is it?

This is a hugely important question. Why? Because the type of gift you buy depends on the receiver of course. For example, if it’s for a close family member, especially your spouse, or your parents, you will put in an added effort and go to extra lengths to buy a spectacular birthday gift because they deserve your effort. For friends and co-workers etc. you may think of gifting them something simpler, like a birthday card with a voucher or something a bit silly.

2. Buy a birthday present that conveys your emotions

Your birthday gift should convey your thoughts and emotions. Search for a birthday present that will show your recipient how you feel about him/her. Maybe you want your gift to inspire, to show that you appreciate their company, or even to just simply say how much you love them. Whatever it is, make sure that you find a birthday present that will show them how you feel without saying the words.

3. Play it smart

A few months before their birthday, start talking about things that you love and gifts that you like. This will automatically get them to tell you about their likes and preferences too. This then gives you a sneaky way to take notes of possible things you could buy them.

4. What do you laugh and talk about?

When you are together what do you laugh and talk about? What connects you the most? What do you love to do? Think about the things you have in common and draw inspiration from them to come with some great ideas.

5. Consider personal style and taste

Where does your best friend or spouse love to shop? Identify the stores that they love to visit when you are on a shopping spree. These stores usually have online catalogs that you can browse through. You will sure to find some interesting gifts for birthdays in them.

6. Check social media pages

Have you ever came up on some social media pages where people commented, “oh my God! I need this!” Yeah, we are sure you do. You will be surprised to know that you can find out a lot about what people want as gifts if you visit their social media pages. Look at the things they liked and commented on and make a note.

7. Browse websites

Browse websites for trending birthday gifts. There are several websites, for instance, Amazon, Etsy, NotOnTheHighStreet which have gift finder options. These websites make it easy for you to find the perfect birthday present, so go ahead and browse through them.

Now make a list

Make a list of the things you know the person likes. Spend time looking through websites and googling these ideas so you can start adding products to the list as well. It should then be really simple to narrow down your choices to the perfect one (Or maybe even a few if they’re smaller bits).
