A few weeks ago, I read about the sweetest graduation gift ever on the CBC News site. It was that of a father who spent every year of his daughters education collecting signatures and messages from the girls teachers, coaches, and principals. He had them sign their messages in a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go!
That was definitely the most amazing gift ever. Yes, even for an expert shopper-slash-gift giver like me. I do pride myself in being a very creative gift giver, from making band-aid notes to painting boxes and so on and so forth, but I don’t think I would have every thought of something like this! I should take a cue from this great dad. All of us should take a cue from him! And so if you’re looking for the best gift to give, whether these be unique gifts for your wife’s birthday, romantic tokens for anniversaries, or memorable presents that will last a lifetime, here are some suggestions from this shopping queen:
1. These gifts do not need to be expensive. Even the cheapest thing can be the best, you know! Take for example that romantic post-it that was hanging in Derek and Meredith’s bedroom in Grey’s Anatomy
2. These need not to be store bought, creativity is key
3. No need to go with the trend! Personalized gifts that are really made for the recipient goes beyond any trend there is!
4. Think things through, but don’t overthink it
Any other suggestions?
