How to choose the best birthday present

Before you finalise your purchase, it's good to answer a few questions about the gift recipient. Some of them may require intimate knowledge of the person. If you're not that close to the person, try asking their friends or family.

  • Do they need any necessities? Is the person you're buying for struggling financially or lacking homewares necessities? This will make your birthday gift buying easy – maybe you can give them cash, a gift voucher or the missing dish drying rack they've been complaining about? Just sayin'.
  • Do they have any pets or children? Someone who enjoys the company of their pets or is a new parent might appreciate a gift which caters to this.
  • Do they have any hobbies or play any sports? Hobbies are a great way to come up with gift ideas. If the person you're buying for is an aspiring guitar virtuoso, maybe a set of new effects pedals would be appreciated. If they're an avid reader, you could buy them an e-book reader to make their collection easier to manage. For the more athletically gifted of us, some new gym gear or the latest jersey of their favourite sports team are ideal gifts.
  • Do they have any addictions or obsessions? It's not hard to find the answer to this question if you regularly see the person you're buying a gift for. Think about their favourite television shows or topics of conversation they always bring up. Then, search for gifts accordingly. If they're a gym goer, for example, the latest supplement may be a good gift idea.
  • What are your fondest memories of them? Presents, whether they're birthday, thank you, congratulations or Christmas presents are always made that much better with a personal touch. Think of your relationship with the person you're buying a present for and what you two love to do together and get them something to suit. Or, think of a memory you share (embarrassing, happy, it doesn't matter, so long as it's a good memory in general) and buy them something that reminds you of that memory.
