What's a Good Birthday Gift? Hint: It’s Not a Birthday Gift Basket

Beyond the Birthday Gift Basket

  1. Use this trick to figure out a good birthday gift for your loved one. Imagine that person in their most relaxed and happy moments. What are they doing? Drinking wine on the patio? Reading a good book in a coffee house? Cooking for friends? Enjoying the outdoors? Capture that essence in your mind and channel it into a gift customized around their ‘happy place’.

  2. The best birthday gifts have an amazing unboxing experience. That's why you should skip the birthday gift basket and make sure the gift you give is beautifully wrapped in a way that will delight the recipient and prolong the joy of receiving a gift. Knowing that you went the extra mile with the gift presentation will make that person feel special---which is what you want, right!
  3. Good birthday gifts always include a gift message or card with a personalized note from your heart to theirs. Don't skip this crucial finishing touch! It's an important part of what makes a memorable birthday gift.
  4. Is your friend’s birthday during quarantine because of the coronavirus? Be mindful that each state and the counties within them have varying social distancing requirements. Those differing requirements might affect how your loved one will be celebrating their birthday. You may not be able to celebrate in person with them so it's more important than ever to give them a beautifully wrapped, personalized birthday gift.
