Three Thoughtful Gift Ideas for 2014

It is a new year, so you know what that means. Out with the old, and in with the new! Last year, there were many popular gifts that everyone wanted, but this year, things will change and there will be new items that are hot on everyone’s lists. If you’re in need of a gift for someone, instead of going out and spending big bucks on something they will get bored with or not even use, why not give them a more thoughtful and heartfelt gift? These gifts will be more appreciated and have sentimental value, rather than monetary. Here are three thoughtful gift ideas for 2014.¬†


Personalized Items

One of the best gifts you can give this year is a personalized gift. This is an especially good idea to give to grandparents. Using a site like Photobox you can make a diary or¬†personalised calendar with pictures of your children on it to give away as gift. These are fairly easy to make and will bring smiles to the person receiving the gift. They are a great way to share memories and remind our loved ones of just how much they are loved. They’re also fun to make, because you can have your kids pose for fun photos. You can also make these for someone that has a pet they absolutely adore.


Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are a great gift for 2014 because there is so much that you can put into them and you can customize them based on who you are making it for. If you are making a gift basket for someone that loves to read, you could include a good book or a gift certificate to a book store, some tea, a bookmark or even an e-reader, like a Nook or a Kindle. If you’re making a basket for someone that loves food, well, then, there is nothing you cannot include and you can also include recipe books or a gift card to a restaurant or a grocery store. Gift baskets are always fun to put together as well.


Gift Cards

As previously mentioned, I think gift cards are a perfect and thoughtful gift. It shows that you are actually thinking about the person you are giving it to and it allows them to purchase something that they actually want or need. You can buy gift cards for practically any store, or you can even buy Visa gift cards that can be used anywhere that Visa is accepted. This prevents you purchasing a gift that someone won’t be happy with.



It can be hard to decide what kind of gift to give to someone. These are three examples of thoughtful gifts that you can give to friends and family all year round when you’re in need of a gift. Remember, that with these thoughtful gifts, there are no boundaries and you can personalize anything you want or include anything in your gift basket. Get creative with it and have fun!
