Buying lots of different presents is always a good way to go because everyone reaps the benefits – you can buy a couple of different things and cover all the bases you have to and the receiver gets the added benefit of receiving eight, nine or ten different presents. The problem with this is what you actually put in the present because it is no good buying a lot of different presents for the sake of it. That is to say it is actually worse getting more presents you don’t want than one big present that you don’t want! It isn’t easy because you still have to know your partner and what they like and there is no cheat sheet for that, but when you do have a couple of ideas then the thoughtfulness and difference of the present will definitely have a lot of benefits for you and the person you bought it for. Here are a few ideas which you may find useful.
It may be a bit generic but everyone loves chocolate, or mostly everyone, so you cannot really go wrong with a basket full of the stuff. Chocolate is one of the more popular and classic gift basket ideas because it is not only well loved from the receiver but it is also very flexible for the buyer. With chocolate you can buy a whole host of variety from dark, milk and white and even fruit and nut and caramel so you can really mix up the choice, which their sweet tooth will really love you for. Also, chocolate is nice on the purse strings because it doesn’t cost too much unless you are going for the luxury brand, which is a good idea by the way, but most of all it can even be full of effort because you can make your own. How sweet!
If your other half likes a drink then the cocktail option is definitely one that will rock their world. All you need to do is buy the ingredients and put them in the carrier along with a couple of twists which should have the desired effect. For example include a shaker, a few cocktail umbrellas and a couple of cherries to cover all the bases. What really is good about a cocktail gift basket is the fact that everyone can enjoy the benefits of it as cocktails really are sociable. There is something about the process of making a cocktail which is indicative of teamwork, cooperation and togetherness.
If food and drink isn’t their thing then maybe take a different twist with a travel theme. Everyone has to do some travelling at some point and an array of baby gifts in Melbourne which make it easier will almost certainly be appreciated. Try a MP3 of some sort with their favourite music, toiletries and some books to read.
