Finding the perfect gift can be a nightmare at the best of times, but when the recipient has everything they could ever want it can feel almost impossible!

Even worse, what do you get for friends and family that you haven’t seen in a little while? If you’ve fallen out of contact, it can be really difficult to think of a personal present.

Today we’re sharing the best gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list. Say goodbye to the stress today!

1. Customise a card

We all know cards can become a bit of a bore, so take your gifting to the next level by customising your cards. There are plenty of online card shops that allow you to upload photos to cards – try Moonpig, for example.

If you have a creative flair or younger children, we suggest making your own cards for friends and family. Grandparents will love it!

2. Gift a pedicure

For the ones who like to be pampered, why not gift them a foot massage? This idea is perfect for mums, partners and friends.

DIY a cute pedicure kit with:

  • A makeup bag, jar or container
  • Nail polishes in their favourite colours
  • Foot cream
  • Nail file – if your budget stretches you could include an electric foot file
  • Cosy socks
  • Vouchers for a foot treatment

Depending on just how well you know the person, you could make your own promise vouchers for a foot massage using coloured card and pens. If you’d rather not get your hands dirty, throw in a gift card for a local nail salon or spa.

TOP TIP: Instead of using a makeup bag, find a lovely pair of slippers and fill them up with all the goodies! Wrap in a clear gift bag or cellophane for bonus presentation points. 

3. Photo frame or album

A photo in a frame is a quick gift that doesn’t require too much effort or thought but feels super sentimental.

Purchase a frame (it doesn’t have to be anything too fancy) and find a nice photo to put inside it. Make sure the picture is printed on a good quality photo paper. The photo could be of you and them or a special memory.

If you have a bit more time on your hands, put together a whole scrapbook or photo album. Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to include their whole life story.

Maybe have a look at their social media and pick an event or a few years of their life to fill the pages with.
