February is the month of love, which makes it the perfect time to express your feelings to all of your loved ones – from your partner to your friends and family! By asking ourselves, “what can I give back?”, we can really connect with others in a meaningful way and make a difference to their day.
We believe that something wonderful happens when you give with no expectation of receiving anything in return. Finding that perfect gesture or memento to surprise a loved one brings so much joy to both the giver and the recipient. With that in mind, here are some of our tips for finding the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day!
Make it meaningful and personal
There’s an art to being a great gift giver and it often starts with picking up hints. One of the things we love to do is keep a section in our planner or notebook where we write down all the things that our friends and family love. For example a friend might mention in passing that they love a certain scent, trend or colour. If you write it down straight away, you’ll be sure to remember this when it’s time to find the perfect gift.
Capture and share memories
The best gifts evoke precious memories and there are so many ways to do this for Valentine’s Day. We love our gorgeous Memory Book, which can be used to create a completely unique keepsake. Add your answers to the prompts, as well as photos to share fun and treasured memories with someone special.
Embrace DIY fun
From our DIY Sticker Book to our 20 Reasons in a Jar, there are so many ways to create a unique DIY gift, no matter how crafty you are. You could even make simple and delicious chokladbollar (Swedish chocolate balls) and create a mini fika with matching Mugs.
We hope these ideas help you to embrace the joy of gifting this Valentine’s Day. Be sure to share your gifting tips in the comments!
