It’s easy to grab a last-minute gift for a friend’s birthday ‘with a click.’ However, giving a gift goes far beyond ‘picking something.’ A thoughtful gift creates a particular type of joy — for the giver and receiver.
At partager la joie, we celebrate the art of thoughtful giving. Choosing that perfect something for a dear friend or loved one lets them know you’re thinking of them.
What can you do this year to make everyone’s gift special?
Listen to cues
If you’re with a family member or friend and they mention something they like, make a note of it (while the thought is fresh). How about that faux-fur scarf your mom admired in a store or the wine your friend enjoyed at dinner?
When it comes to thoughtful gifts, you can surprise someone you love with a ‘just because’ gift or make their birthday feel unique with a “You remembered I liked that!” treat.
What a powerful way to show you care!
Think experience gifts
When you’re looking for a gift online, it’s sometimes overwhelming to wade through the e-commerce ‘noise,’ hoping to find that particular store and gift. Need a little direction? That’s where experience gifts come in...
Experience gifts open the opportunity for your friend or loved one to indulge in something special — either alone (for some downtime) or together.
Presentation is part of thoughtful gift-giving
Similar to how you set the table for dinner — taking the time to arrange your favorite linens and silverware — how you present your gift shows your thoughtfulness.
When it comes to wrapping your gift, put your best creative foot forward. Whoever is lucky enough to receive your gift will be delighted — well before they see what’s inside!
Draw on the senses
We experience the world through our senses. Use the five senses to guide your gift-giving!
Giving from the heart
Thinking about what your loved one enjoys is the first step toward thoughtful gift-giving. The second step is presenting the gift to them and seeing their appreciation. The third step — and the most important — is sharing joy with someone you love.
At partager la joie, we choose items to make your gift-giving special (and easy!). Also, when you buy select items (coming soon), a portion of the proceeds will go to a charitable organization. Come on in!
