Buying a gift is always nerve-wracking. On one hand, there is that amazing feeling of gifting another person, but then, on the other hand, you might be stuck without actually knowing what to get to that special someone. It would be a lot easier if they told you what they wanted. However, if they have remained silent or you simply want to surprise them and get them a present for no reason whatsoever, this might be slightly trickier. On that account, here we are with some original and very interesting gift ideas for this year. They’re all pretty affordable, too, so you needn’t break your bank in the search for the perfect gift. These are our choices for 2019:
If the person you’re buying the present to is into fashion, then you at least know the kind of present you want to get them.
First of all, buying clothes is never an easy endeavor, especially because you can’t be completely sure if they will a) like the thing that you got them and b) fit the size. This is why it’s always best to get them things such as accessories – these are always interesting and can be an amazing gift. The most popular accessory is definitely a good watch. Even though it might seem that this is quite an expensive present, there are watches that are very affordable (especially for him) and yet very good in quality and in appearance. Other accessories include bags and rucksacks, so free your mind (and the rest will follow!)
For the lovers of anything retro
Being retro is always fashionable – what a contradiction! Think about the person who’s going to be gifted. Are they retro? Are they into games? If both of the answers are positive, then there is a perfect present for them. What you could do is buy chess sets that are extremely retro yet high-quality. This is an excellent gift as chess never goes out of fashion and it still gives out that old, retro feel. Even though some might never play chess, it’s such a good thing to have at home and it can be quite an interesting asset to your home décor.
For culinary lovers
Moreover, you can always try and see what their hobby is. If it’s cooking, and if they’re into creative recipes, then getting them a cookbook might be a splendid idea. However, make sure not to get them any cookbooks, though. You’re not really sure which cookbooks they have (and if they’re into cooking then they probably have some), so avoid the ones that are very general such as Italian cuisine, Mexican cuisine, and such. There are great cookbooks that gather all the best recipes from all over the world, so an international cuisine cookbook is probably the best choice!
If you’re thinking of getting them a new guitar or something similar as a gift, please stop! These are always quite touchy gifts as each of them is completely different, and you really don’t want to spend a fortune on something that they might not like. Rather focus on the things that are very affordable yet can be very interesting.
One option is a gramophone – they are back in the game (for a good reason!) so it would be quite an interesting choice. However, if the person you’re buying the present to is a musician, then the chances of already having a gramophone are higher. So, try to remember what kind of music they like, or what album they adore, and try to find the corresponding vinyl record. If it’s a new release, you will be able to get it at the music store; however, if it’s an older release, you might have to dig a bit on eBay and similar websites. Never mind, as the hard work will definitely pay off in the end!
For gym rats
Finally, there is plenty of great present for gym rats, and all of them come in the form of a piece of equipment for the gym or an accessory. Water bottles or new gym bags are always safe choices, so make sure to know just what they need for the upcoming gym month!
As you can see, it doesn’t have to be too difficult to get someone a good present. The only thing that matters is to know what they’re into and think outside the box just a little bit!
For yourself and your partner
Treat yourself and your partner to an amazing gift. Book a spa treatment for two so you can unwind and recover from the week’s stress. Or go on a weekend outdoor trip to get away from the madness of your everyday life. When you get home, surprise your partner with a naughty gift that will make sexy times more exciting. Both of you have worked hard the entire year, and you two certainly deserve a treat.
