Finding the perfect gift for your better half or any loved one can be challenging. While candles and personalized coffee mugs are safe options, they’re so overdone. If you want to blow away that special someone, here are some options that will make a birthday memorable. Take a look at our guide to thoughtful and unique gift ideas.
1. Custom Bobblehead
From Billie Eilish to Conan O’Brien, many famous celebrities have their own bobbleheads. And you can add the birthday boy or girl to this list. Custom couple bobbleheads are surely going to put a smile on their face. You can easily make your own bobblehead modeled after a picture of your choice.
2. Personalized Jigsaw Puzzle
Whether you are 15 or 45, there is nothing more therapeutic than losing yourself in a jigsaw puzzle. It’s not only exciting but also encourages one to spend more time offline. Rather than a regular puzzle, you can design a personalized puzzle based on the receiver’s hometown or favorite artwork.
3. Pet Necklace
Is your loved one obsessed with their pet? Take a page out of Lena Dunham’s book, who gifted her bestie Taylor Swift a necklace customized with a picture of her pet cat. If you want the necklace to be more wearable, you can consider embossing it with a meaningful date or name.
4. Vinyl Subscription
If your friend considers themselves old school and loves music, then we’ve got the perfect gift for them. Get them a modern yet charming turntable! And if they already have one, you can help them build their record collection by giving them a vinyl subscription. Many subscription services send vinyl mixtapes personalized according to an individual’s taste and preferences.
5. Tarot Deck
Is your better half into astrology and spirituality? Encourage them to express their interest by giving them a beautiful deck of tarot cards. Even if you’re not a believer, you can’t deny that tarot cards are fascinating.
6. Wine Subscription
Does your partner enjoy drinking and learning about wine? Help them become a wine connoisseur with a wine subscription. You can take an easy and quick quiz to get wines that match your taste.
7. Coffee Alarm Clock
What could be better than a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you as soon as you wake up? A coffee alarm clock will wake you up and prepare a hot cup of coffee when you wake up. Gift this to your beloved coffee addict.
8. Fun Lessons
Some people are more fond of memorable experiences than materialistic gifts. Whether your loved one has shown interest in bread making or pottery, you can sign them up for lessons. Join them if you want to spend some quality time together.
9. Beauty Box
Skincare and beauty have never been more popular. However, certain brands can be quite expensive, and people may hesitate to spend so much on themselves. Since it’s a special occasion, spoil your spouse with products from a luxury brand. For an element of surprise, take help from their friends to make sure you’re buying the right products.
