Thoughtful vs. Expensive Gifts: More Isn’t Always Better

Gift giving is something known to human civilisation since the beginning of time. It’s something that comes naturally. We want to make someone else happy, thank them for being here or remind them how much we love them. Oftentimes, it reveals our feelings for that person, and how much we care for them. 
But when it comes to buying a gift for your best friend, you always want to get something better each year. But bigger and shinier doesn’t mean meaningful and memorable. Choosing something thoughtful and from the heart is something they’ll appreciate and remember forever.

Music Box

This may seem like a simple gift, but it has so much potential in it. The beautiful and versatile musical jewellery box is one of the best gifts you can buy for someone. They are very sentimental and have the potential of becoming family heirlooms for many generations to come. It’s not a standard gift that first comes to mind, but it sure is meaningful.
Music boxes are a fun way to show your affection for someone. There are plenty of themed boxes you can get – each one with its own perks. If the person has a hobby, you could buy a box that mirrors it. For example, a dancing person at the top, their favourite cartoon character, sport, food, book and anything else you can imagine. Some of them are even animate and the figure moves.
You can have a custom-made box that includes the person’s favourite song. This will be a great reminder of your thoughtfulness and care. It’ll be a reminder of the strong bond you have as friends or family. There’s also a practical side to them as well. Besides being entertaining and fun, they can also use them as jewellery boxes. It’ll be a neat and organised place for their earrings, necklaces and other trinkets.
You can find these boxes in different styles. The first one is a standard wooden music box. Besides the music and storage space, you can add a locking mechanism or inlays. The carousel type is a wonderful piece of decoration. Just like a carousel it spins and plays fun and entertaining sounds. The hand crank box is a classic that has a special spot in everyone’s hearts.
This is a perfect Christmas gift, as well as for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, housewarming parties, baby showers and anything else you can imagine. It’s a great way to celebrate someone’s milestone and create a memory they’ll cherish forever. To complete your gift, add a card with your sentiments.

Personalised Jewellery

Personalized jewellery is a unique way to show someone you care about them, especially if they are close to your heart. It demonstrates your commitment to them as well as your love, care, and intimacy. Additionally, you see to it that they receive a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery. An item gains importance and value when you connect it to a special memory. It could be a bracelet, ring, pendant, or brooch.
Gold, silver, platinum, or palladium are some of the greatest materials to look for because they are precious metals that make excellent carving and writing blank canvases. When it comes to engraving something unique and unforgettable, you have a tonne of alternatives. Pick dates or signs that represent your relationship, as well as a number, phrase, or acronym that has a special place in your heart.
The cute nicknames you have for each other are also something you can engrave. A combination of your zodiac signs or an infinity symbol will also represent the bond you have. It's a present rooted in memories and shows how much you value and care for the person. They'll see that you've put a lot of thought into it. Additionally, there is a potential that it will live on in the family for upcoming generations.

Gift Hampers

This is one of the most popular gifts in Australia right now. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t gift it to someone you care for. For starters, there are so many beautiful combinations you can think of to create it. These versatile gift hampers are perfect for any occasion and will work no matter the person’s age and sex. Plus, if you don’t have time to create one, you can choose from the already assembled ones.
You first need to choose the base of the hamper. Some people love chocolate, some wine or beer, some are workout enthusiasts, some are eco-friendly and some are big sports fans. You could combine different types of chocolate, whine, dark, milk, and pair it with some fruits. If the person like wine, get their favourite brand and include some wine glasses, cheeses, some snacks or even a musical jewellery box.
If they prefer beer, nuts and a book about homebrewing will make them very happy. Sports fans will love a hamper with some nice memorabilia from their favourite team, and your eco-friendly pal will enjoy the natural products you’ll pack in the hamper. This is a present that’ll last for a long time and they’ll remember it forever.
