The Perfect Gift: Do Something Different This Year

With such a lot that has happened since the start of the Corona Virus Pandemic, it is time to reflect on what really matters. 

Is it the price tag? No! Those days are long gone. With the horrific quantity lives lost throughout the world, most people were touched by the consequences of the pandemic. Therefore, it is not the price that matters, but the thought you’ve put into the gift. For that it’s important to do a bit of research into the recipients’ likes and dislikes.

Is it about a price range? No, again! Many people have lost their jobs because of the pandemic. Subsequently, it is impossible to buy a gift for every loved one, no matter what the price range is. By now you should get it: Price does not matter. 

The Perfect Gift - Memories

There is nothing you can take with you when you pass.  Someone else must decide what happens to all your souvenirs, and personal belongings. So, no more collectibles that gather dust. Instead, another perfect gift is a handwritten DIY card (there are plenty of ideas on the internet) with an experience as a gift.

One of the cheapest and most affordable experiences is a gourmet food experience.

  • For example, you may have a couple that is longing to travel to Greece, but due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, they can’t. Give them the perfect gift – a gourmet food experience that they can enjoy from home!

Group It

It is far better to give a gift from a group, or to a group. For example, a gift from the Smith Family, or a gift to the Smith Family. By doing so, you can give one quality gift, instead of a few small gifts.

  • The perfect gift idea: Maybe, a coffee table book about the family’s shared love for nature or beautiful places across the world.
