How to choose the perfect gift

Finding 'just the right gift' for someone is so difficult that many people have resorted to giving cash gifts in recent years. But it's undeniable that receiving a gift item personally still makes the recipients feel more special. To help you find the perfect gift for your spouse, parents, kids, or friends, we've come up with a few basic rules below:

  • Take a chance – instead of buying traditional gifts such as fruit baskets or fruitcake, try something new. People tend to remember gifts that are out of the ordinary. It can come in the form of a statement t-shirt, an interesting fashion accessory, or even something that holds a meaning such as a friendship bracelet or an engraved ring.
  • Browse online – if you need more inspiration, just check out the different online stores. We have hundreds of retail partners available covering a huge variety of items. You'll definitely find promising gift items that are fun, memorable and affordable.
  • Talk about gifts – talk to your friend, spouse, or whoever you're buying a gift for about Christmas or the upcoming occasion and ask them indirectly about what they would love to receive. In most cases, they would be more than happy to talk about the items they would like to receive from 'other' friends.
