“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Time off work. Festive cheer. Happy gatherings and celebrations. Mesmerising sparkling lights. The delightful end of the year holidays are fast approaching. But it is also one of the most stressful time of the year.
You know what we’re talking about. We’re faced with the same conundrum every holiday season: gift shopping for our loved ones and the underlying fear of buying the wrong present – the one they subtly re-gift or swiftly donate.
Whether you are shopping for that special Her or Him in your life, finding the perfect luxury gift can be overwhelming. From thoughtful, small luxuries for under $100 to splash-the-cash statement gifts, what does actually make a gift a luxury gift? Offering a luxury gift is not (just) about offering something expensive. Modern luxury now revolves around everything from uniqueness to meaning to experience.
Tips on finding the perfect gift for Her or Him?
When choosing a luxury gift for your treasured ones, consider these three helpful pointers:
Luxury is a thoughtful experience, not just a hefty price tag
Make a list of the people you need to buy a gift for and what you can get them. This will help avoid picking up anything and everything from the tempting shopping mall shelves. Plus, this way you won’t end up spending $$$ on worthless gifts.
Luxury is celebrating his or her individuality
The most luxurious gifts are thoughtful. Great gifting requires observing, listening, researching.
Do make a list of their interests. Browse their social media channels for insights into what they “like” or the brands they follow.
Offering a luxury gift is first and foremost about celebrating our loved ones (and who they are, what they love). The biggest mistake gift givers make when approaching holiday gifts is to buy what they would like, rather than what the recipient would like. Think about your recipients’ personality and style. Think back to past conversations you’ve had where they may have (inadvertently) hinted.
Luxury is unsurpassed quality and timeless
One of the most compelling reasons to invest in a luxury gift is the guarantee of unsurpassed quality. Consider the longevity of the gift. Do get them something they will actually use beyond January. Investing in a timeless gift will keep you top of mind time and time again.
