Holiday giving is just around the corner, and shopping for the perfect present can be difficult. Here are 5 tips that will help make you the best gift giver of the season.

Be creative
Homemade gifts can make the best gifts, as they are often thoughtful and detailed. Getting creative with presents can be fun and will guarantee a great reaction. Typical crafts such as picture frames or personalized keychains are great ideas for the other person.

Get personal
Gifts that relate to you and the other person are a great sentimental gift. These types of gifts will show the receiver that you spent lots of time and effort on the gift, which they will surely appreciate. Maybe you have a picture of the two of you together. Frame it and give it to them as a thoughtful gift that they can display in their home.

Consider how close you are to that person
It’s important to understand what kind of relationship you have with the other person. If you are best friends with the receiver, then a personal gift would be reasonable. However, if you are just acquaintances, something simple such as a gift card is a way to show that person you thought of them.

Gift cards/cash
Gift cards or even cash is always a safe bet. They can use it to buy whatever they want but still have the satisfaction of knowing you thought of them. This will make the other person excited to go shopping and appreciate you for the kind donation.

Time is the best present
Planning an event together is a great idea for a gift. Things like taking a small trip or having a movie night will show that person you want to spend time with them.

The practice of giving is a strong demonstration of love towards others. And isn’t that what we need more of? Give love this season, and happy holidays.
