Quite often we have someone in our lives who appears to have all the material possessions they could possibly want, meaning when an occasion comes around, you are stuck searching for the perfect gift ideas.

It may be their upcoming milestone birthday, or perhaps you want to surprise your partner with the ideal thoughtful gift; whatever the occasion, you’ll want to wow them with a gift that they may never have thought of before.

Gadget Accessories

It’s very rare to know someone who doesn’t have some kind of mobile device in 2018. Whether it’s their smartphone, their tablet device or even their laptop, a unique gift idea for those who love tech could be a personalised case to protect their device. You can add their name or even a photo to a case so wherever they go, they carry a memento of you.

If they favour the use of a vape, why not think outside the box and gift them with a gadget dedicated to their hobby? You can find a variety of liquids and accessories such as a cleaner on It will certainly be a present they aren’t expecting!

An Experience

For those who value time over material possessions, the gift of an experience will be right up their street. If they’ve always dreamed of taking a tour around a chocolate factory or indulging with a spot of afternoon tea at a fancy hotel, a gift of a day out together will be perfect.

If they are more of an adrenaline-junkie, you could surprise them with an exhilarating skydive. Or how about spending the day relaxing and unwinding at a spa together, being pampered with massages and facials?

However, you don’t have to break the bank on your experience day. Instead, you could create one from scratch, surprising them throughout the day and truly make precious memories together. An experience day from scratch could include films with tasty treats at home and a DIY spa day.


If there’s one way to make someone feel extra special, it’s taking the time to handmake something you know they’ll love. This idea is perfect if you are surprising your partner and you have children, as you can involve the little ones in the creation process.

You could choose to paint a picture, write a sentimental poem or story, or even create a collage of your favourite pictures together. Whatever you handmake, it’s sure to have the wow factor when you present it to the recipient.

Food & Drink

If there is one great way to shower someone with love, it is with their favourite food and drink. A great idea is to create a hamper from scratch with all their favourite nibbles. You could include a bottle of wine or beer, as well as cheese, artisan bread, chocolates, biscuits and any other little bits they might enjoy. You can even include items such as a personalised cheeseboard to wow guests at a dinner party or new champagne flutes if you really want to splash out.

For those who prefer not to drink alcohol, you could include a mug and exclusive, exotic coffee beans or a variety of loose leaf teas they may never have tried before.
