It’s that time of year where it’s, most likely, tied with Valentine’s Day or anniversary that you have to fork out a small fortune for your loved one. Yes, it’s their birthday. So how do you usually go about buying birthday gifts for him or her? Careful research or last minute? We share some of our tips to ensure you can get them the best gift and save a few bucks at the same time.
Birthday gifts for her
What should you buy for your girlfriend? Well, perhaps you should find something she is interested in. If she has an on-going hobby, like knitting, gardening or cooking, a good birthday gift for her would be a new set of utensils like a gardening set or needles, in addition to them being practical.
Has she been suggesting at something for the last few weeks? Take the hint! If it’s part of a collection (CDs, DVDs, games, perfume, food kit etc) she’s had her eye on for a while, a good birthday gift for her would be the first part of the collection. You’ll save yourself from buying the whole lot, she will be able to try out the part and see if she actually likes it or not, and from this, your relationship will blossom and improve because of your intuition.
Or has she been trying a new diet or exercise like Pilates? Perhaps a juice maker or new gym wear would help encourage her to continue with her new hobby.
