I LOVE giving gifts. I enjoy the experience of searching for a gift that perfectly reflects someone’s personality. Most of all, I treasure the joy and sense of appreciation that my loved ones feel when they open a gift. That’s what giving is all about right?! Making that person feel special and showing them that you are grateful for the impact they are having in your life. Through my enjoyment of gift giving I’ve learnt a thing or two about choosing the perfect gift, what makes a gift memorable, what to buy the person who has it all and what to do when you have no time to go shopping. Today, I’m going to tell you about all these things, plus I have two Little Kete Nourishing Health Food Hampers to giveaway (valued at $85 each).
How to choose the perfect gift
The perfect gift is one that makes a person feel loved, valued and brings a smile to their face not only when they receive the gift but when they use it, or think about being given it! Thoughtful gifts that consider the personality of the recipient will have the most meaning as the person can see that you have considered them. I think it’s always good to choose a gift they will use regularly so that they can be reminded their significance to you whenever they use that gift.
What makes a gift memorable?
If a gift makes a person smile and feel loved because it reflects their unique personality, it will likely be memorable because it will surprise and delight them. Likewise, if the experience of unwrapping the gift is also unique this will make the gift even more memorable because it engages the senses more. Have fun with your presentation, include anything that adds texture, colour and adds to the experience of opening it.
What to buy the person who has it all – a healthy gift hamper
A healthy gift hamper is my go-to-gift for those whom I don’t know what to buy, because what better gift can you give than one that helps improve someone’s health? This is much better idea than giving nutrient-empty chocolates and let’s be honest, it’s far easier to come by these ‘sometimes treats’ than the nourishing gourmet treats you find in a healthy hamper, making this a far more memorable gift.
Little Kete Wholefood Gift Hampers
A great Aussie small business that offers healthy wholefood gift hampers is Little Kete. I love supporting them because the business was born from the passion of the owner, Briar, for the mindful act of giving beautiful nourishing food. Briar who is a kiwi, says ‘Kete is a basket, which is traditionally woven from the leaves of New Zealand flax plants. The baskets were often woven during gatherings of family & friends. Nothing like a good chat with friends to connect.’ What a beautiful basis for a business name and just what we want the gifts for our loved ones to do – make them feel connected and special. The Little Kete hampers contain the finest health food products and are beautifully presented in a 100% linen wrap. This makes for a unique gift experience from the first glance right down to the last crumb of those gorgeous seed biscuits or last sip of tea.
The best part is a Little Kete can be delivered anywhere in Australia, so not only is the gift unique, beneficial to their health and lovely to unwrap, but it also comes with an element of a surprise in the mail – and who doesn’t love that?! This makes a Little Kete the perfect gift for a friend or family member that you haven’t seen in some time and want to bless. It’s also great if you don’t have time to shop because you can order it all online here.
Ladies and gents, this is a great way to bless your partner. It would likely make their week to find something other than bills when they walk out to the mailbox that day. The way the Little Kete is wrapped made me think it would be a great way to start a date weekend involving a picnic! There are plenty of nourishing teas and foods to enjoy together over some intentional quality time. Who in your life needs to be blessed with a gift like this? Be generous, you don’t know how much this might brighten someone’s day, week or even year.
