Whether you’re looking for a romantic present for your other half, a surprise to send to your sister who lives overseas, or something for yours truly, there are a number of gift options available.
From hampers brimming with artisan delights to bouquets of beautiful blooms that promise to brighten up the day of a loved one to helium balloons brandishing the words ‘happy birthday’ – there is a gift for everyone out there! We’ve listed a few of our favorites below…
A bouquet is a great gift to send to a parent, a work colleague, a girlfriend or a family member. There are a variety of bouquets to choose from, in an array of different sizes and designs. If you know what the recipient’s favorite flower is, try to opt for a bouquet that features this bloom alone, or alternatively, picks numerous different blooms for a truly eclectic mix.
How does one make a house a home? With a pretty plant of course! Gifting an individual a small shrub is a great idea, as it will instantly add color and life to your property – including both the interior and exterior spaces. From olive trees to rose bushes and luxurious orchids – there is a plant to suit all. To have the most impact, choose a species that you know the recipient will both love and care for. For example, if gifting a busy person, opt for a plant that is extremely low maintenance.
However, if choosing a green-leaved companion for those with a keen interest in gardening, select something more tropical in style. When it comes to choosing where to buy such an item, you’ll be pleased to hear there are a number of online florists available, many of which – including Serenata Flowers – offer next day delivery. Plants with their succulent foliage are both serene and sophisticated, and when cared for correctly, will promise an assortment of picture-perfect flowers year after year.
If you’re trying to stick to a budget, yet still wish to send a thoughtful gift to a special someone, go ‘old school’ and make them their very own playlist. Try to think of songs that have memories tied to them to create music that tells a story.
For those who have everything, choose an experience. From driving a supercar to flying a plane, to a voucher for a cooking class or a trip to a city destination – there are a number of experience gift ideas available. This is a great gift for a partner, close friend or family member, as it’s likely you can partake in the experience with them!
Whether you’re attending an event, throwing a surprise birthday party or saying ‘good luck’ to a colleague who is about to start a new job – helium balloons can provide plenty of fun and excitement. These balloons can be delivered directly to the recipient’s door and will arrive in a box – meaning once opened, the balloon inside will rise to the sky. With an array of messages to choose from, there is a balloon to suit all personas and occasions.
The gift of charity
If the person you are trying to gift has specifically said they don’t want or need anything, send them a card that informs them you have gifted the money you would have spent on their present to their favorite charity. This is a sweet, heartfelt gift and one that will warm the heart of the recipient, while also helping a great cause.
