My Favorite Fun Gift Ideas
When you’ve got a lot of friends and family that you want to give fun and memorable gifts, it can take some hard work to figure something out for each and every person. One easy solution for happy home building is to buy something in bulk that everyone will love but that few people have ever heard of. One of the best options for this is to buy plants and feathers embedded in lucite, which can come either in the form of bracelets and other jewelry for women, or as paperweights and decorative blocks for men. If you’ve never seen what plants embedded in lucite look like before, I really suggest you google it and take a peek. There are tons of different kinds for sale on etsy, and they’re almost all amazingly striking and beautiful.
I tried this last year – I got in touch with a woman on etsy who sold plants embedded in lucite bracelets, and I got a bulk discount for buying 20 of them at once. I gave them out in special handwrapped boxes to each of my family members, and I tried to give them plants that suited their personalities as well. I think it was a resounding success.
How To Come Up With Fun Gift Ideas
Most of us love giving gifts but hate shopping for them. Trying to come up with creative, fun gift ideas can be challenging. Fortunately, there are a few ways that you can make the process easier.
First, you should start by thinking about the person’s hobbies and interests. Make a list of the things that they like to do. This can give you a good jumping off point for finding items that they may be interested in.
Using your list, spend some time searching online for any products that match their interests. Blogs and forums can be a great way to discover unique or interesting products that you may not be able to find through a regular search. You can even try starting a new thread on a forum that is related to the person’s interests asking for gift ideas from other members.
Another option is to think about giving an experience gift. Rather than buying a physical product, you could pay for them to do something that they enjoy. For instance, you could get them tickets to a movie, pay for skydiving lessons, buy them a pass to the local swimming pool, get them a membership to a museum or anything else that you think they may enjoy. These types of gifts can be a fun alternative to traditional gifts.
Some Fun Gift Ideas for Friends and Family
I have so many friends these days, and so many family members, that it can get hard to find unique and fun gifts for all of them. One of the easiest things you can do to make sure that you can give a fun and memorable gift to everybody is to focus on the most central things about that person. You can give them a gift based on their name, or based on their occupation, or based on where they’re from that’s always sure to please. One of the best ideas to give a gift based on where they’re from is to have a common flower from their hometown – such as their state or county flower – embedded and preserved in a block of lucite.
This is a stunningly beautiful decorative piece if it is well made without air bubbles, and if the flower inside is fresh and well preserved. I have often had people tell me that it was the most beautiful gift they ever received. It’s even better if you can find out what their favorite flower is – take a look at what’s in their garden or what flowers they keep around their house.
My Experience Looking for Fun Gift Ideas
I never thought I’d have cause to be on the internet googling around for fun gift ideas, since I always knew exactly what to get my friends and family. Then I started working in an office, and all of a sudden I had to come up with gifts for my co workers, and worst of all, for my boss. There’s really nothing worse than having to come up with a gift for your boss – I don’t know anything about the guy, and I haven’t said more than ten words to him in my whole two years here. So what do you get a guy you know nothing about? It’s a hard problem.
The only things I knew were that he drove a BMW and that I’d seen golf clubs in his office. But how would I even know if they were his golf clubs, or if he were holding them for a friend. Should I just get him a “#1 Boss” mug? Nobody really wants that, though, and I wanted my gift to stand out. I ended up taking a risk and getting him a bottle of scotch – I got a raise a week later, so I think it worked out. 🙂
