3 Tips for Meaningful Gift Giving

By 12/15/2020 07:14:00 PM ,

There are many options when it comes to presents that show how much you care. So when it comes to giving, find meaningful gifts for your loved ones.

Gifting is more than just the physical exchange of objects — it’s a way to communicate. When you put thought into it and choose a meaningful present, the gift becomes a wish for someone’s happiness.

Anyone can give a thoughtful present — all it takes is a little perceptiveness and creativity.

To help you with this, I'm sharing three tips from NOVICA "Mastering the Art of Meaningful Gift Giving"

Give Creatively


Unique gifts that you make yourself are especially meaningful because they show your loved one that you used your time, energy, and creativity to get them something nice.

The possibilities for do-it-yourself gifts are endless and you can take inspiration from almost anywhere, including handwritten letters or poems, handmade baked goods or clothing, or even a pretty box full of nice sayings and memories you’ve made together.

If you’re giving DIY gifts, though, it’s very important to be observant and remember who you’re gifting to — one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to giving.

Give by Observing


The number one rule of meaningful gift-giving is observation: pay attention to what friends and loved ones say and what their interests are.

People are constantly dropping hints about what their likes and dislikes are, often when you least expect it! Would they like something useful, or something decorative? Something for the house, or something for themselves?

Thoughtful gift-givers also understand the circumstances of their recipients. People don’t always ask for what they want — or even realize that they need it — but by paying attention to what would make their life easier or what they need replaced, you can almost always pick the perfect unique gift.

Give for a Good Cause


Everyone knows at least one impossible-to-shop-for person: they’re either a minimalist who desires nothing more, or someone who already has everything.

Well, it doesn’t have to be. Give them a gift that supports a good cause, or make a donation in their name to a cause or charity that’s dear to their heart.

If you’re not sure where to start, why not give them a Kiva gift card that provides microfinance opportunities for deserving entrepreneurs and let them have the fun of choosing their recipient, tracking the loan, and receiving feedback along the way.

If they’re a culture lover with a passion for handcrafted goods, send them a NOVICA traditional handmade gift, that supports an artist and their family.
