Is there a special person in your life with a birthday this month? Finding the right present can be challenging. While you know this person inside and out, sometimes picking the right gift for their birthday can feel overwhelming. With so many options, it can be hard to choose one thing.
We’ve put together a list of excellent diverse gift ideas for people of all ages! Check out these threeitems and consider one (or several) of them for your special birthday girl or boy.
1. Decadent Face or Body Moisturizer
Now that the fall is here in full swing, winter will soon be making its cold and blustery appearance for a few months. You need to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized! Have you ever considered a jar of your favourite cream to give as a birthday present? Do you have a friend who’s always complaining about dry skin? We don’t mean to generalize an entire group of people, but men often neglect to take care of their skin, especially in winter. Is there a man in your life who could benefit from cream with essential oils?
You might have a body or face moisturizer that you swear by, and don’t go anywhere without it. Why not share the love and give your friend or family member the gift of hydration? Whether it’s face or body cream, they’ll appreciate it on those frigid, dry winter days.
2. A Pair of Socks
When you hear “socks,” your first reaction might be to scroll down to see what the next gift idea is. People have been giving socks as gifts for decades, and some people might not find the gesture very creative. However, socks are the perfect choice for a birthday present! You can never have too many pairs of socks, particularly in the colder weather. There are many different styles to choose from, such as comfortable thermal socks for women — which are much warmer than a typical cotton sock. If your friend enjoys the outdoors, a pair of thermal socks will make an excellent present because they keep moisture away from the body, maintaining warm and cozy feet on those long walks in the snow.
Trying to inspire a lazy loved one to stay fit? Take them to the fun route. Gift them a trick scooter. It is a fun way to go around and works out your muscles without you even knowing. Balancing a scooter requires core muscle strength, propelling the scooter with the foot requires leg strength, and quick decision-making skills require mental agility. All that makes it a blessing in disguise and a rather ingenious gift.
4. A Beautifully-Designed Journal
Does the birthday person have a passion for writing? If so, they would love a brand new journal to write their thoughts every day. These days, journals come in many different styles and colours. You might be familiar with Moleskine — an old and classic brandwith a wide range of interesting colours from black to lavender purple.
There are also journals with beautiful designs on the covers. Perhaps your friend enjoys art — visit your favourite museum’s gift shop (in person or online) to find one that has a custom cover of a Monet or Matisse painting. Before you purchase the book, ensure that it has ruled, lined pages. Some have graphs or blank pages inside, which are much harder to write on.
Don’t settle for a boring birthday gift for someone you care about! Give them something they’ll appreciate and cherish for a long time to come.
