There are common gifts, such as chocolates and flowers, but if you really want to wow them, ordinary just isn't going to cut it. Many great products are available, but some will go the extra distance, while others just won't have any pizzazz. To help you churn up some amazing inspiration, here is a list of some of the best gifts for the person you love.
List of Best Gifts for Your Special Someome
Whenever you need a gift for your special someone, whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, or Valentine's Day, you want the gift to be as special as they are.
Putting in a little bit of extra time is the way to anyone's heart. You can make a gift that shows you love your sweetheart, whether the person is your spouse, parent, or child. How about making a box that has a year's worth of dates inside. Or you can have a crate full of movie night supplies, such as the movie, popcorn, and candy or ice cream.
Couple on Christmas time with Gifts
Who ever said that a laugh wasn't romantic? It's very possible to be funny and romantic at the same time. Check out Pinterest for some great inspiration, such as the coffee mug that tells that special someone that you are envious of the mug for kissing his lips every morning. Or how about the jar of nothing. It's so common for loved ones to say that they don't need anything that the gift hits at a common theme in many relationships. Jokes aren't snarky when there's real love behind them. For more funny ideas that completely encapsulate the silliness of your relationship, check out Pinterest's funny love quotes.
Funny relationships are great, but it's always best to tailor the gift to the tastes of the recipient. Some people prefer gifts that are more sweetly sentimental than silly. A plaque or piece of wall art that has a sentimental message engraved or written on it will plunge deeply into many people's hearts. If you're at a loss for words, try finding quotes online, such as the ones in this post on Holidappy. There are great quotes by famous poets and celebrities that will make anyone feel mushy inside. The Huffington Post also has a list of endearing phrases that will make a romantic partner melt.
Gifts That Play to a Loved One's Interests
Knowing a special someone's interests is another way to show that you care. For instance, if your spouse or parent has an interest in science, get them something that they wouldn't normally buy for themselves. Do they like astronomy and have been eyeing a telescope in a magazine? Why not buy them the thing that they would never permit themselves to buy? Even though it doesn't scream romantic, it's still touching when someone notices that you've wanted something for a long time.
Create an Experience
This can be an experience that you do together, but even if it's not, they'll remember you more just for having had that experience. A sporting event or play are activities that people talk about for years. You can also take pictures that will help you reminisce whenever you open the scrapbook. You can also make it a point to get a really good one, and you can frame it for them to bring to work. Those special moments are the things that can buoy us for months or years to come.
Gift a Love Note
Love notes can be written on a traditional piece of paper, but you can also get more creative if the words themselves won't come to you. For instance, you can write simple phrases on post-it notes and surprise them with little, sweet gifts of love throughout the entire day. The words that you write on the post-it notes don't have to be absolute poetry. They can be simple things like, "I love your green eyes" and "You're so special to me." You could also make a collage of notes that they will find first thing in the morning or just after coming home from work. Pick a place that they go every day, such as the bathroom mirror or the refrigerator.
Sometimes physical items will help us show a little bit of love, and sometimes experiences and special moments will do it best. Whichever you choose, tailor it to the tastes of the person that you love.
