Big birthdays, rescheduled celebrations, weddings – finally weddings – and all manner of other exciting events are back on our calendars with fervour, and while we rejoice in these celebrations, we also need to start thinking about the all-important gifts that we bring along, too.
Some people love shopping for others, spending their time seeking out the perfect present for others fills them with joy, while others find it somewhat a chore, especially if the individual or couple they are buying for are harder to please than your typical giftee. From trips abroad to something for the home to food hampers to delight, we have come up with a few ideas to inspire, and if you are looking to make your money go further, then don’t shy away from using discounts and vouchers. From reduced price tickets from Five-Star Airline certified Qatar Airways to the latest Iceland store vouchers, voucherbox.co.uk have you well covered, meaning that your gift can be even better than originally planned.
Are you stuck on what to buy for your loved one? Read on for five perfect luxury gift ideas that are sure to please anyone on their big day.
Everyone loves a little pamper session, whatever they may tell themselves, so why not give your loved one the gift of good skin? Make sure you find out what skin type they have by checking any products they currently use and treat them to some high-end skincare products such as those from La Mer, La Prairie, Biologique Recherche, Lancôme and Estee Lauder for a luxury facial they can undertake at home.
Something for the kitchen
Who doesn’t love a kitchen gadget to up-level their culinary skills? You can, of course, go for a more traditional gift such as a blender or slow cooker or you could opt for something a little more fun such as The Velvetiser from Hotel Chocolat for that perfect hot chocolate, a popcorn maker for the perfect movie night at home or a high-end cocktail shaker set for those perfect espresso martinis.
A surprise trip away? Who wouldn’t love to open an envelope to find tickets to a coveted destination inside? From Bora Bora to Barcelona, gift your loved one with a holiday that they will never forget and if it’s for a friend or partner, why not make it a group trip so they can share their experiences with their favourite people? Including yourself, of course!
Leather memory box
Whatever the happy occasion, the person or people celebrating will, no doubt, want to capture as much of the day as possible, and while photographs and video clips are a great way in which to do this, a memory box will make it all the more special. Upgrade to a leather-bound box for that luxurious feel and let them fill it with their treasures from the event for a lifetime of smiles.
Ideal for those really hard to buy for people, a food hamper is a sure-fire way to please. Head to the likes of Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Fortnum and Mason for a gourmet hamper of fine wines, champagnes, spirits, alcohol-free, and the finest of foods and snacks to suit any tastes. Beer and nibbles, afternoon tea, fudge selections, Italian treats, cocktail themed sets and more are all available, catering to any taste.
