Christmas, birthday, an anniversary, what else is the best momentum to gift-giving? New year! Yes, we are talking about how to give a valuable new year’s gift for this special occasion. These basic guides today are perfect for anyone. Anyone we mean your kids, your parents, your spouse, and your friends.
Your new year’s gift does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. We mean you could, but you don’t have to. The following are “Bali Villas R Us” reliable three basic principles that you can follow when you are stuck on “what to give this year”.
#1 Give a new year’s gift that reminds them of you or vice versa
A mindful gift has a powerful effect on the receiver. It’s expressive and it evokes emotions. It depends on the occasion but it could go both ways whether you want your gift to depict how you see your person or how you would want to be remembered by him or her.
Your gift receiver might be about to part with you to study abroad. They also might be away for quite some time. That’s why you want a gift that can represent your presence. A gift that s/he can look at every time s/he needs it the most. Perhaps, it could be the gift you are presenting that reminds you of the receiver. We will explain it more in the second principle. That’s why sometimes you find a gift in the form of a used key chain, a doll, and many more.
#2 Find out what your person is passionate about so you know your present will be useful for the receiver
There are two types of gifts you could consider in this case. One that is meant to symbolize a certain thing but has less practical value. The other is a gift that your receiver can use comfortably on a daily basis. For instance, you can make them a jar containing things you want your receiver to know about in rolls of paper. It has a more sentimental value. Reading each paper roll might give him/her a sentimental message from their loved ones especially when you cannot always see them.
In comparison to a gift like a mug with a favorite quote of your person, or one that you pick yourself, s/he can make use of the mug every time they fancy a sip of morning coffee or tea. To get one that fits his or her personality you need to learn their liking. A customized mug, in this case, can relate to his or her habit of starting their day by enjoying their morning coffee or tea.
#3 Your new year’s gift doesn’t have to be a thing. Gifting can be in the form of an experience, or a dream
As someone who listens to your person’s complaints during their tough times, you can offer them a new year’s gift that could manifest their dream. It could be a concert ticket to your person’s favorite singer. It also could be a sum of pocket money to allow them to purchase something they need. In case you know that the receiver is broke and the money will mean so much to him or her.
Probably you knew that your person has always been dreaming of a staycation to one of the best Bali villas ever. You can use your creativity and create a DIY coupon that says, “You are eligible for an enjoyable retreat with Bali Villas R Us.” The thing is, the gift that you share with your loved one does not have to be a tangible one. It could also be in the form of helping them to realize their dreams.
What is in a new year’s gift? – the holistic meaning of a gift
Do you ever wonder why spending money for the happiness of someone else induces such good feelings to the giver?
When you are gift-giving, you do not only give joy to the receiver but you also feel a spark of delight seeing the smile of your loved one, and knowing that your exhaustion of gift choosing and wrapping was definitely worth it.
To add, a psychologist at Worcester University unveils the meaning of gift-giving as one of our ways as social beings to connect and maintain our relationship with the receiver.
All in all, we want to make them feel special and to recognize how important their presence is in our life, don’t you agree?
