The first thing is to find something unique that will make your recipient feel appreciated.
Gifting something memorable is the best way to make someone feel special because it tells them they are appreciated, and you value them to be as unique as the gift.
Think about the gifts you have received, and invariably it will be the unique gifts – whether big or small – that have made an impact.
Conversely, we’ve all received generic gifts – yet another bottle of wine for example. Unless this is of outstanding quality, or carries a special story/memory you share it will be quickly forgotten, mindlessly shoved into the kitchen cupboard - and you have missed the opportunity to make an impact with your gift.
