There is nothing quite like gifting a loved one a present that takes them by complete surprise. Surprise in that they did not expect to receive a gift, and surprise in that you have given them a gift that they could not have possibly expected, but love. This is not a task easily undertaken, and more often than not, attempts at surprising our loved ones with gifts fail. Whatever the occasion, and whoever you are giving a present to, you need to look no further than this all-encompassing guide on how to surprise your loved ones.
Not only will we, in this article, tell you how to surprise your loved ones, but we will tell you how to surprise your loved ones with style. Most of the gifts listed on this page will be cost-efficient. We are, as this is being written, in the midst of a global health crisis [the SARS-CoV-19 pandemic], and because of that, we understand not everybody has money lying around, which is why we have compiled a list of gifts that are affordable and awesome.
Here is how you can surprise your loved one with style and make the day a special one [whatever that day may be].
Beef jerky is one of the most popular snacks throughout the world. It is not a snack exclusive to a single gender, and rather, can be enjoyed by all. Beef jerky has seen an artisan revival in recent years, and according to ManlyManCo.com, bespoke gift baskets can be put together, as well as jerky arrangements [such as bouquets] to surprise your loved ones. Beef jerky is not a conventional gift, but it is one that can be given for a reasonable price and one that will be enjoyed, and after all, the enjoyment of the recipient is surely the only reason why we give gifts, is it not?
As we grow older, we begin to take great joy in comfort. As a child, however, being given pajamas is perhaps the worst thing you can receive, but as an adult, this is not the case. No, rather, giving adult pajamas as a gift can be a gift that they derive great joy from, and the one they cherish and hold dear for many years. There are many specialist pajamas shops across the world that offer silk, linen, or brushed cotton pajamas that are comfortable, fun, and pleasing to the eye. If you can’t figure out what to give your loved one, maybe pajamas will suffice?
As just mentioned, comfort is a great gift to give. Throughout the world, there is an artisan bedding revival. Small-time manufacturers are producing comfortable, sustainably sourced, and beautiful bedding available in a wide range of price budgets. Bedding can be a good gift to give to somebody, especially if you are cash strapped. For under a hundred dollars you can pick up environmentally friendly, economically sourced bedding from bespoke retailers throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. It is this author’s opinion that those made on the Indian subcontinent are the most beautiful, but we will leave that up to you to decide.
Technology is a very vast subject, we understand. However, with Black Friday quickly approaching, if the person who you are shopping for is a tech-fanatic, now’s the time to bag some deals. Of course, research which aspect of technology they are most interested in, then shop in that area. For example, if they are a gamer, see if you can bag a console for a low cost, or a computer [or even video games]. Shop for tech according to their hobbies.
Hey, what’s more stylish than designer clothing, right? Equally, with Black Friday approaching, now’s the time to get designer clothing deals for your loved ones. Designer clothing is an addiction for some, and with massive bargains and reductions, now’s the time to shop. The rest of the year, designer clothes can be obscenely expensive, and far too expensive for most people. Now, however, is the best time to bag clothes that they can enjoy for many, many years. If they love designer clothes, now’s the time to start shopping.
We are spending huge amounts of time indoors at the moment as a consequence of the lockdown restrictions that have been introduced by our governments to combat the further spread of the virus. With so much time spent indoors, there’s never been a better time to invest in board games. While not holding true to our subject [stylish gifts], board games certainly are thoughtful, which is why we have mentioned them here. We are all cramped together in our houses, so easing the tension a little and lightening the mood with some board games is much needed. There are many board games to choose from, so try to opt for one that is a favorite of your loved one.
Hey, listen, it’s not a conventional gift, that’s for sure, but it’s one that’ll be greatly appreciated. Persian rugs were historically the domain of the world’s richest, but now, they can be the domain of just about anybody. The prices of Persian rugs are reducing the world over, as the world’s elite are opting for different types of rugs. This has been highly publicized in journals and blogs across the world. If you want to give your loved one a gift they’ll never forget, invest in a Persian rug for them.
At the moment, there is a huge classical literature revival. Hundreds of thousands of fashionable, ‘in-the-know’ people are turning to classic literature [the older the better] and diving in. If you want to get your loved one a relevant, cool, and downright interesting gift, then perhaps it may be time to head down to your local obscure second-hand bookstore. We’ve all got one. Perhaps invest in a mystical grimoire for them or a first edition work of poetry from one of the greats [which will be pretty expensive].
With the help of this page, you should now know a few gifts to give to your loved ones that will be stylish and fun. Christmas is just around the corner and we are all going into the gift-giving overdrive. We hope this page was of benefit to you.
