An indulgent gift. 

Sometimes, the best kind of gifts are edible - especially if the recipient of the gift is a foodie. This could mean something simple, like a box of their favorite chocolates, but you can also be a little more inventive. For example, you could put together a luxury hamper containing all of their favorite things - such as wine, chips, candy, and biscuits. 

Alternatively, if you know that your friend is super busy right now, you could prepare a week’s worth of meals ahead of time for them and deliver them to their door. This means that they won’t have to worry about cooking and can spend a bit more time relaxing.

A personal gift.

A gift that is incredibly personal is a great way to brighten someone’s day. For example, if a particular song reminds you of a good memory with your loved one, you can buy them a gift associated with this tune. For example, you can work with That very song to create a unique piece of sound wave art that they can then display in their home.

A useful gift. 

Sometimes you will receive a gift that you can’t really use. Therefore, when choosing a gift for a loved one, try to buy them something they would actually want or need. For example, if they pursue a particular hobby, why not purchase some materials that they can use on their next project. For example, if your friend is an artist - why not contribute to their work by buying them new paints or brushes?

Therefore, your gift to them could be organizing future plans for the next time you meet up.- this is a great way to cheer them up and gives you both something to look forward to in the coming weeks. For example, you can plan a weekend getaway on their behalf or buy a voucher that they can use at their favorite restaurant when it reopens.

A homemade gift. 

Even if you aren’t the most artistic person, homemade gifts are a great way to let someone know that you are thinking of - as you can tell, they come from the heart.
