The Ultimate Gift Guide For Happy Recipients

Whether you’ve received a gift to yourself and want to give back, or you’re looking to bring a smile to someone’s face, there’s a gift out there for every occasion. 

In these uncertain times, there’s nothing like a surprise present through the letterbox or delivered in-person to brighten up a loved one’s day. Luckily, there’s so much out there – and it’s all available to order online and have delivered straight to a loved one’s front door. 

For some people, all they want to receive is the brightest bunch of flowers there is and for others, it’s all about the chocolate or wine. Some people prefer something a little more personal and outside the box, perhaps something to set them up with a new hobby or help them get back into an old one. While others prefer to have their mind opened with books, films, and music. 

At the end of the day, whatever their tastes there’s a gift out there to be given. Check out this selection of gifts for happy recipients…

Letterbox flowers

Now we’re all focused on minimizing contact with other people, letterbox presents are the way forward. You don’t even have to be in the house to sign for these flowers as they come packaged in a neat box, with instructions on how to arrange them yourself. 

Coming in all sorts of styles and colors, letterbox flowers are the ultimate gift for anyone because let’s face it, who doesn’t love a beautiful bunch of flowers to brighten up a room? 

These ones often also come not quite fully bloomed, so you can watch as their heads come to life and the stems rise up to reveal themselves. 

Gin tasting set 

Available from many of the famous gin companies, anyone who loves a gentle drink on a warm summer’s evening is sure to love a gin tasting set. 

They often come with a selection of a couple of different gins to try, everything from spicy botanicals to cooling floral flavors. This means that the happy recipient of your present can also expand their flavor palate when it comes to this popular spirit. 

Ceramics painting set 

Sometimes all you really want to do is sit down for a couple of hours and take your mind off the busyness of life with a crafting activity. Keeping your hands moving and your thought preoccupied often means your mind stays focused on one thing for a while, so you can’t be distracted by your “to-do” list. 

A ceramics painting set is perfect for this. Whether it’s a bowl, mug, plate or something larger like an ornamental dish, just taking the time to select colors and paint designs on ceramics will give the recipient of this present a welcome break from real life for a while. 

Polaroid camera

If you have a friend, acquaintance or loved one who used to really love photography, but you’ve noticed that it’s fallen by the wayside in the last couple of years, then why not remind them of their beloved pastime with a vintage camera? 

These days polaroid cameras, with their instant images and classic white border-photos, are leading the trend in aesthetic photography. 

The recipient of this unique and thoughtful present can then pin the photos to their wall and have memories to treasure for a lifetime, without having to go and get the photos developed. 


Sometimes there’s nothing better than a simple box of chocolates. If you head over to a chocolatier’s website, there might even be an option to customise a box especially for the recipient, so you can be sure that your sweet present is exactly what they’d love to receive. 

And if they’re a real chocolate fan, you could even take it one step further. Chocolate cookies, brownies and cakes, there’s so much you can do with chocolate so don’t forget to consider these fan favourites when you’re buying your chocolate-inspired present. 

Shower hamper 

Bath bombs, luxurious shampoos, and conditioners, deliciously smelling candles…

A shower hamper is bound to go down a treat with anyone. It encourages them to kick back and relax in the bath, letting the bubbles soothe them and giving them a real chance to relax. Or you could opt for an energizing selection of shower products, giving the recipient of this present the best possible start to the day.
