As experts in the gifting industry, we want to share some of our expertise with you. We know there is special value in a gift that was self-created from start to finish. Often, this is referred to the DIY (Do It Yourself) gifts! So, for those extra personal gifts, we have put together some helpful tricks and tips to add onto your to-do list when creating your own special gift.
Here are the 4 things to keep in mind:
1-This special someone, whether it be a friend, family or partner, will value observance. Study hard! Find out what these individuals love and desire! This can be as small as adding their ultimate favorite chocolate treat or even their favorite music. Your research will not go unnoticed!
2-Don’t be too much of a perfectionist! Sometimes, the little details that make it apparent you’ve created this from start to finish are the best part of the gift! But if you have personalized the gift enough, then it is fair to make sure it looks perfect! However, it’s okay to explain that you created it yourself but better yet, have them question the details on how you created such a stunning gift!
3-If your gift is going to consist of many favorite items, combine it in a sweet basket form! To the right, find displayed a neat gift idea created by a Nutcracker Sweet Gift Baskets in Toronto employee, Sarah Turney. This was created for a close family member who was immigrating to another country to study abroad. Inside, it included the recipient’s favorite chocolates, toothpaste, razors, travel accessories (baggage locks, neck pillow, and etc.), lip balm, toothbrush, cue cards, highlighters, and more. It was “packed” in a stunning hand luggage that was used as the base of the basket—it was the most expensive item of the gift! Sometimes, a basket full of personalized awesomeness is the best way to go for those sentimental gestures!
4-The significance of your gift is not the monetary value, but the sentimental value! Don’t forget to add a sentimental card! It will definitely be the cherry on the top of the gift!
