Perhaps you’re brainstorming gifts to send to someone special in your life. Whether it’s a holiday or a special occasion, you want to mail the right present. It should show you’re thinking of them and that you put thought into the gift, whatever that may be.
Before you fall back on flowers, the old standby, consider unique gifts that are personal and fun to give and get. Not sure what to send instead of flowers? Curious about what occasions even call for a gift?
While flowers are nice, they may not be the most personal present you can give. When you want to show a friend or loved one that you’re thinking of them, really think of them. Consider what they’d like or need and whether it’s appropriate for the occasion. Consider giving alternatives to flowers for occasions like these:
Birthdays: Any birthday is worth celebrating with the perfect gift. Giving someone a thoughtful and special present for their birthday shows you’re thinking about them, even if you can’t be there to celebrate.
Anniversaries: Mark relationship milestones with a special gift that reflects your love or your partner’s tastes. Whether it’s been months or years, a loving relationship is worth honoring. You can also offer a gift for a friend or family member’s anniversary celebration.
Holidays: Throughout the year, plenty of gift-giving holidays call for the perfect present. Send something unique or personal for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and various other holidays.
Celebrations: Getting a promotion, graduating or moving to a new house are a few reasons to celebrate. If you can’t be there in person, send a thoughtful gift other than flowers.
Comforting and condolences: Certain occasions require more somber gifts. Comfort the recipient after a breakup, the loss of a loved one or during struggles and challenges.
Just because: Sometimes, the best reason to give a gift is no reason. Send a gift just because you see something that reminds you of the recipient.
