Awesome Gift Ideas To Surprise A Loved One

There’s nothing in life that is as satisfying as surprising a loved one with a gift is. In order to ensure that your gift is a surprise and not a disappointment, you need to give it serious thought. You should spend time thinking about what your loved one enjoys, what will benefit them, and what they don’t already have. You could even go ahead and ask them what it is that they want.

If you are really stuck, then look no further. This article will provide a list of things to consider giving your loved one:  

Sustainable Clothes

If your loved one is concerned with the environment, then you could give them some environmentally-sustainable clothes. Much of the clothing that we wear is made at a detriment to the environment. That doesn’t have to be the case, however. If you don’t want to chance picking clothes out for your loved one, then get them something simpler: underwear. According to the sustainability specialists from The Hippie House, you can pick up socks derived from Chinese bamboo. These socks are made without any chemical agents or pollutants, which ensures no harm is caused to the environment by their production.

Tickets Abroad

If you want to treat yourself too, then why not book you and your loved one tickets abroad. The world’s been locked down for nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, international travel is beginning to reopen to vaccinated travellers. If you have the cash spare, then taking your loved ones abroad could be a great way to treat them. Make sure that you discuss this with them before booking the tickets, otherwise, they may not be able to get time off of work and you might not be able to get a refund for your airline tickets. If you live in the United States or Europe, you could also take them on a road trip to another, more tropical state or country.

First Edition Book

If your loved one is an avid reader, then find out what their favorite book is and pick it up in its first edition. Some first edition books are very expensive, however, so if their favorite book is something like The Wind and the Willows or The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, then you might have to get them in its second, or the third edition. You could also invest in a Folio Press copy, which book collectors love. If their favorite book is something more obscure, however, then you should be able to pick it up in the first edition without much difficulty. You can find first edition books on eBay, Abe Books, Amazon, and other online marketplaces like Etsy.

Theatre Tickets

There are going to be lots of awesome film releases this year, so why not take your loved one to the movie theatre? Instead of booking ordinary seats at an ordinary theatre, however, why not take them to one where you can book a booth? A booth is a private seating area, where you get privacy and comfort. Some theatres also allow you to order snacks and drinks directly to your booth, making the whole experience much more enjoyable and less stressful. Booth tickets are generally quite affordable.

Oriental Rug

An oriental rug is a gift that your loved one will cherish forever. If you are going to invest in one for them, then try to buy one that is at least 100 years old. There are lots of different types to choose from, from Turcoman to Moroccan. You can find oriental rugs for sale at auction or you can buy them directly from dealers. The former is usually a better idea because you’re more likely to get a better deal. Dealers charge huge markups on the prices of the rugs that they sell, sometimes charging up to 100% more than they initially paid.

Dinner Out

If you want to keep it simple, then you could just take your loved one out for a meal. You should already know what their favorite cuisine is. Book a table and surprise them after work one day, or on the weekend. Taking your loved ones for dinner out is a great way to show them that you love them, care about them, and want them to be happy. If they are a family member, then you could consider inviting the rest of your family along, in order to make it a more social event.

If you have a loved one who you want to surprise, then you need to seriously think about what to get them. If you don’t select their gift carefully, you could end up disappointing them, which is not something you want.
