4 Steps to Thoughtful Gift Giving

Morning everyone!! Today’s blog is all about the art of thoughtful gifting! I feel like as time goes on I have a stronger appreciation for thoughtful gifts … I mean, don’t get me wrong, we all love getting spoiled with luxurious little presents but as time goes on … and after having little Leo, I find that gifts that have a MEANING behind them are so special and irreplaceable.

It seems as though some people really have a knack for thoughtful gifting … ideas easily flow to them and somehow they create this beautiful, heartfelt, gift and for some, it doesn’t come quite as easily. Well, today, I’m going to share a few tips I have learned on thoughtful gifting in hopes to spark up your creative side just in time for the holidays! It’s in there somewhere … I KNOW it is! Lets do this together …

1. Layers

I like to start off by breaking down the gift layer by layer. Thoughtful gifting has MANY layers … think of it like a Ferrero Rocher … you’ve got the whole crunchy hazelnut in the heart (your love for that special person), a delicious creamy hazelnut filling (the memories you have made together), a crisp wafer shell covered with chocolate and gently roasted pieces (your thoughtful gift which reflects those memories and your love) all wrapped up in a golden wrapper (AKA your gift wrap!) … it’s these little layers and details that make these gifts SO special.

2. Inspiration

You can find inspiration for a thoughtful gift if you think back to the memories you have made with your loved one, whether it’s places you’ve travelled to together, your quirky little inside jokes or the everyday moments you share, there are always little ideas within your reach. For example, this year Justin and I have been so busy that it’s easy to get caught up in our daily routine often times we forget to give each other the downtime that we need during those crazy busy days. So, knowing this, I thought it would be cute to make him a little coupon book filled with fun ideas and a few little perks … one of my faves is a night off of bedtime duty (as some of you know, I’m in charge of “morning duty” and Justin handles “bedtime duty”), which means he can kick back on the couch with a glass of wine one night when he needs it most and I’ll get Leo ready for bed while he chills!!

I have filled the entire coupon book with little deeds that I know that he would really appreciate … such as a back rub or breakfast in bed … you name it, you can gift it! LOL! Just make sure it’s something you wouldn’t mind doing because you can’t back out once you’ve created the book and gifted it! LOL!!!!

3. Personalization

I think the thing that makes a thoughtful gift the most heartfelt is when it’s tailored to the person you’re giving it to. There is something to be said about receiving something with your name handwritten on it … whether it’s one of your favourite photos with a cute note on the back, your favourite cookbook with a sweet message of your favourite meals together in the book, or a coupon book with their name on the front, personalization is key!

4. Finishing Touches

Once you have your cute little-personalized gift all ready to roll, it’s time to wrap that baby up!! Pick out your favourite wrapping paper, tie a bow around it, add a personalized name tag and top it off with a sweet little treat … like Ferrero Rocher chocolates … it’s their thoughtfully crafted layers of chocolate, hazelnut, and wafer that make this the perfect little finishing touch to your gift … and not to mention … they’re pretty darn tasty!! LOL!
