Life is short and every single moment counts. Amongst these moments, the power of gifts goes a long way. Not that Christmas is coming around the corner, maybe you’re looking forward to making amends, getting together with your family, letting a loved one know that they’re loved, and the reasons for gifting only increase. But what can you do to put together the best gift?
Here are some of the fundamental features of gifts that are remembered and cherished.
The choice of the wrapping paper
You can always use a plain colored piece of sheet to achieve a minimalistic look. But that just doesn’t send a message. In the popular TV show ‘The Office’, Michael Scott wraps the gift for his girlfriend with a wrapping paper with the word ‘love’ in several languages printed on it; and that trumps any other wrapping paper without a doubt. Hence, be sure to go for added creativity in wrapping the gift.
The suitability of the packaging
Although we were not to judge a book by its cover, aren’t we most attracted to well-packaged goods? We are, and that’s human nature. When you use high-quality custom gift boxes to send your gifts in, you’re more or less giving more reasons for them to believe that they matter to you. Because after all, you could just hand them over the gift with no wrapping and no packaging.
Instead, you go out of your way to choose the most suitable packaging solution of the perfect dimensions and type, it’s going to inject that importance you want to give the receiver to the gift itself. In the best-case scenario, they’ll keep the packaging since every little piece means so much to them. To do that, buying packaging from a reputed packaging supplier is the right thing to do.
The note/letter that comes along with it
A love letter or any sort of letter is so underrated in this technologically advanced world. But whether it was your old best friend, your loving parent, a teacher, or anyone who fits the list would be thrilled to read a few words by you. After all, how many movie scenes are there when the actor or the actress is reading a letter, cherishing the gift?
Sentimental referencing to the receiver
There can be some memories that are special just for you and the receiver of the gift. Depending on the nature of the relationship you have with them, referencing them would make them know that you remember those special moments and cherish them.
For example, if you can still, remember the type of wine you had on your first date, sending them a well-packaged bottle would do the trick. Or you could buy a display box and neatly put in the first movie ticket together – the possibilities are endless when you’re thinking with heart.
Gifting doesn’t ever have to be about what you gift; it’s a matter of how. Now that you know some of the best tricks to do it right, all you need to do is putting all of them together in your next gift.
