There’s more to gift giving than what the present actually is. The real joy in this holiday tradition is of course the act of honouring your relationships and making them stronger by offering gifts to those in your life who mean the most to you.
For this reason, you should always aim to include a little bit of yourself in every gift!
Here are a few favourite ways to make your gift personal.
Add a hand made card
Hand-made touches are always a wonderful addition to any gift, and you don’t even need to be terribly crafty to do it!
Pick out your gift, such as this stunning set of white gold, ruby and diamond earrings, then take a look on Pinterest for some card inspiration. There are plenty of ideas, from simple to complex, that anyone can create at home for that extra personal note for any gift.
Consider the wrapping
Wrapping a gift often means pulling out whatever gift wrap you have on hand. Instead, consider looking for something special.
For example, you could opt for something simple like wrapping the gift in tissue paper that is your loved one’s favourite colour, or you could paint or draw on plain paper to make your own unique style. You can even glam up the ribbon by adding an ‘I love you’ charm to the bow.
Don't forget the note
It’s easy to pick out a card from the store that already has a cute message written inside, or you might even stick with a simple ‘Merry Christmas’ in your card.
This year, consider adding something super personal and meaningful to you. For example, tell them about your favourite memory of the two of you from this year, or talk about how excited you are for something to come in the future. Tell them what they mean to you, or how they have really been of great help to you. No store-bought card in the world can capture your unique relationship in words - but you certainly can!
