A lot of people feel these days that gifts are old-fashioned and medieval, and that people don’t appreciate them anymore. But the fact of the matter is, if you send someone an unexpected gift, assuming you know this person well enough to pick out something that will truly impress him or her, it’s NEVER a bad move in any relationship.

Roses

One of the simplest and most effective things to do is just to find roses online and have them sent. A great hack to this is to not just send the typical dozen red roses that everybody thinks of first thing, but to send some specialty roses (something along these lines) which will probably be the first time the recipient has even seen such a thing. This is guaranteed to make a lasting impression.

Chocolates

This one is a little tricker, because everyone is on a diet these days. But assuming that this is not a problem (know your recipient well!), go ahead and send these. Pro tip: anything that has anything to do with Nutella is 99.99% guaranteed to be a big hit in this department. As a matter of fact, even if the intended recipient of your gift is in fact watching their caloric intake, there are still options available to you if you look around a bit.

Other Options

Besides flowers and chocolates, there are almost unlimited possibilities for other great gifts that can be gotten or gained. You are really only limited by your imagination in this category, and the one suggestion we would have here is that a great idea is to get someone a gift based on his or her biggest interests in life. The only factor limiting you once you think along these lines is that it has to be something the recipient doesn’t already have, or have enough of.

Gifts To Avoid Giving

In general, avoid giving other people clothes. The one exception to this is if you were with someone in a store and they pointed out a piece of clothing that they would like to have and didn’t buy it. This is worth going back for and getting. But of course, most of the time clothes are something that you try before you buy, for a very good reason.

Also avoid shoes and hats for this reason, as well as that there is a superstition in some areas regarding buying these items as gifts that may upset your recipient and have the opposite intended effect.

There is also a factor of making sure the gift is elegant and charming. There may be some exceptions to this, but for example, avoid giving anything to do with cleaning or housework or someone’s job as a gift.
