Buying gifts for a loved one is extremely fun! Whether you like online shopping or browsing high street stores, there are so many things you can choose from. What you choose very much depends on the type of person you are buying for – for a fashionable friend with a love of the glorious Isle, you may want to look into where to buy Irish jewelry. For a sports family member, you could buy some tickets to a game of their choosing, or for a gamer, you could treat them to the new Xbox or PlayStation game. The possibilities are endless.
To help you buy something for your loved one, we have categorized the below. If you are buying for a teen, our other guide may help.
Suggestions for someone who loves traveling
We all know someone who loves to travel! Travelling is great fun, you get to see new places and experience new cultures. There is always a place to visit, no matter the time of the year. Present ideas could be a gift voucher for a destination you know someone would like to visit. Why not pay towards a hotel with a balcony? You could treat them to a restaurant voucher or a spa break in a place you know they want to visit. If you want a physical gift, a passport holder, a travel pillow or a diary could be worth considering.
Suggestions for someone who loves to cook
Everyone has to cook at one point in their life. Some people love it, while others dislike cooking. If you have a friend who you know enjoys cooking, why not treat them to something that will help them in the kitchen? You could buy them a new set of glasses, some coasters, a recipe book, a bottle opener, candles, a cutlery set – the list goes on. Make sure you visit them before and pay attention to the things they are using and if they have the item you want to buy them. The last thing you want is your gift left hidden in the cupboards.
Suggestions for someone who loves their sports
People who love sports are easy to buy for, there are so many things to choose from after all. You could buy them some new tops for when they work out, a new pair of trainers or something they can use at the gym. If there is a particular sport you know they enjoy, ask their friends if there is something that they think they will need to help them improve. Football players always need new balls, cones and drinking bottles for example. If you are completely stuck, you could always ask the person you are buying for some suggestions and then work off that list to surprise them with something.
