Thoughtful Gift Guide

A lot of people tend to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to capture great deals. But what usually ends up happening is that they buy things without giving it much thought. Then, they try to decide who randomly gets which gift based on what they already purchased. If you are shopping for colleagues that may be acceptable, but for family members and loved ones, you are going to want to put some thought into each gift. The best way to do this is by capitalizing on the likes and interest of each person and then personalizing it to suit him/her.

General Shopping Tips

Before buying any gifts I like to think about what the person likes and I also consider if it is something I would buy for myself. These are the main factors in deciding on a present and once I get past that stage, it gets easier from there. Not only do you save time, but also money by buying the right items for each person.

My Thoughtful Gift Guide: 13 Gifts To Give This Year

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Multiple Wallet

Suitable for male friends, work colleagues or even your significant other. They can also be used by women as they do not have a masculine touch. Although not overly expensive, choose wisely in terms of who gets designer presents and who doesn’t.

Diptyque Ambre Candle

Women love scented candles and these Diptyque ones seem to be a favourite as it is very popular on Instagram.

Christian Dior Perfume

I have seen nice reviews about this particular perfume “Miss Dior” from Christian Dior. Perfume is a safe choice when it comes to gift-giving because it is an everyday item.

Gucci Logo Leather Belt

You may not want to splurge on gifts for your workmates but this designer belt is on every woman’s wish-list. Knowing which size to buy is important and they also come in different buckle sizes and widths.

Fossil Bracelet Strap Smart Watch

Most guys are not fussy when it comes to watches so they will appreciate a nice functional watch.

Mr. Porter Grooming Kit

As you know with the popularity of having a beard, men take grooming more seriously now than before. So this is a great choice even if he doesn’t have a beard, grooming is essential.

Prada Leather Card Holder

Perfect for the occasions when you do not want to carry around a handbag.

Clarins Restorative Skin Care Set

Everyone is currently health conscious, beauty and skin care obsessed. Comes packaged with four different products and based on the reviews I would say go for it.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette

Holiday time women wear a lot of shimmer and glitter makeup so this highlighter palette is a must-have.

Gucci GG Marmont Velvet Belt Bag

How beautiful is this velvet belt bag from Gucci and it is also a personal favourite.

Apple Watch Series 4

The Apple watch is not the traditional bracelet or leather band watch but rather has a girly but sporty look.

Balenciaga Motocross Classic Money Wallet

Can be used as a wallet or mini clutch and for the low price, this is a steal of a deal. Classic pieces never go out of style and it a well established brand name.

Prada Intense Perfume For Men

Fragrances are one of the easiest things you can give as gifts and are widely accepted.

That’s it for my thoughtful gift guide for the holidays. Good luck finding your perfect gift!
