Finding the perfect gift can often be difficult, whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas, anniversary or another occasion, it can often be challenging to purchase one item that they are sure to like. However giving them a physical gift isn’t always necessary, you can often find a number of gifts that are much more thoughtful such as a range of experiences. Here are some top gift ideas for that special person that don’t involve actual presents.


Jet Off On Holiday

Taking that special someone on holiday can be a gift of a lifetime, rather than spending money on a present they may not like, you can build a number of memories on a special holiday. Whether you are looking to take them away on a relaxing vacation in a hot country, or a fun filled activity based holiday with lots of sightseeing, the choice is yours. Take a look at their interests and see what they would prefer and where they would like to go. Remember to set a budget for yourself as you don’t want to overspend, you should also do this for spending money on the holiday itself.


Go On A Pampering Day

Everyone loves a little self-indulgence, and what better gift than to pamper that special person silly. Whether it’s a full spa day with massages and treatments included, or you want to treat them to a manicure and pedicure, they will love the feeling of being indulged. This is a gift that they will definitely appreciate as the feeling of relaxation and bliss after will feel amazing.

Aroma Therapy

A Thrilling Experience

For those more adventure and adrenaline motivated people, why not get them an exhilarating experience gift? There a number of experiences that they can go on such as bungee jumping, driving experiences, or a parachuting experience. There are many more to choose from, you just need to tailor your choice to their personality and interests.


The Gift Of Design

Although many people often want to redecorate or renovate their homes, but don’t have the time, patience or eye for it. Hiring an interior decorator is a solution to all of your problems, not only can they come up with a few ideas, they can run them past that special person to check that they are happy with the design. They can help up with accessorising, choosing colour schemes and arranging furniture, so your loved one can have the home they want, without having to put in all the hard work. Trying to find a trusted interior designer can be difficult which is why you should do your research, Inspiring Designs offer a number of quality interior design services.


By choosing to give one of these gifts rather than a physical gift, you could provide them with a much more personal present, this is often appreciated much more and shows the time and effort you have put into choosing something that they will love. It’s always best to book in advance with any of these ideas though as they will usually be booked out early on.
