Buying gifts for others can be challenging but less so in sensitive situations. When someone deserves a gift due to difficulties, it is easier to find gifts that pull at one’s emotional heartstrings. You essentially have permission to think on a sentimental level with the person in mind. Instead of trying to impress them with a gift, you’re trying to express that you care. Showing you care via a gift is instantly cherished, regardless of the gift itself. While we wouldn’t wish misfortune on anyone, as the gift giver, given these circumstances, you can find relief in knowing that whatever you purchase will likely go over well. To help you get started, here is a brief gift guide for showing someone you care.
Food And Dessert Bundles
Food is something people lean on in times of discomfort for its soothing qualities. The best gift idea, and the easiest way to show someone that you care, is to send them food and dessert bundles in creative displays.
You can find fruit bowls, sympathy baskets, and chocolate assortments that all convey the message of how much you care. Give the person in need in your life the tasty gift of food to show them how much you care for them and their situation.
A Handwritten Letter
Sometimes, words of wisdom or encouragement are the best gifts of all. Take some time to write out a thoughtful handwritten letter for someone in your life to show them how much you care. The amount of thought and effort that goes into handwriting a letter is enough to make anyone smile. Your gift recipient is sure to love it!
Do your best to keep your written thoughts centered around the person you’re writing to. They’ll appreciate the attention and focus you put on them during your writing.
A Dinner Voucher For Two People
A thoughtful gesture is to purchase a dinner voucher for the person you’re buying for. Get them a dinner-for-two voucher so that they can take someone with them. Meals are best enjoyed with the company! Your gift recipient will appreciate the chance to dine out for cheap, thanks to your thoughtful gift idea! Want to make this gift even better?
Show them how much you care by offering to watch the kids while the two dinner voucher winners go out to eat! Try to pick a dinner voucher for a restaurant with excellent reviews or one that you have personally been to and can attest to the quality of service and taste of food. The last thing you want is to give a dinner voucher for a restaurant that isn’t very good!
A Self-Care Subscription Box
You can pay for a subscription to have your gift recipient receive a self-care box each month, delivered straight to their door. In the box, you’ll find hand-selected self-care items, picked by therapists to promote a sense of calm and relaxation whenever it is needed. Treat the person in your life to bath bombs, essential oils, and more with a self-care subscription service!
You’ll show your gift recipient just how much you care for them and their general well-being. A self-care box will remind them to care for their health. They’ll be thankful for the reminder.
