Now I’m all for giving gifts to people and I think there’s no better feeling than handing someone over a bag of goodies to say thank you! I’m not a great believer of birthdays apart from the closest people in my life.. The reason being because I’m grateful for them.. Although its not something that is practised in my religion. For all you Muslims out there.. If you want to say thank you to someone for all they do for you during the year.. Give people gifts on your birthday because it is your life that they have helped with.
For men aged 15+:
Clothes!! For sure! Or give them a really nice pair of shoes. You can’t go wrong with clothes and if you leave the tag on them, they’ll be able to exchange it from the same store for something else, should they wish to do so.. BAM!
£50-£100: go for aftershave or if you’re really creative make a goody box full of things they like (socks, basic t shirts, favourite foods, beauty products etc)
£100+: Here’s where the fun is.. Every birthday Mr. A has had, I’ve spent over a hundred pounds cause the variety is endless! I’ve got him an IPad, LARGE shopping spree, paint balling day with his friends, beauty and hair products galore!
Gifts for girls aged 15+:
Simple.. Beauty! So go to Boots and make use of their gift boxes! Body Shop gift packs are the best! Aim to go for things that you know they would wear though as make up is often not returnable! I would say not to go for clothes just because women are rather fussy!
£50-£100: Perfume! You can’t really go wrong with that! If you’re spending this amount money then I would actually take the girl out! Whether you go shopping or to a restaurant, whatever she likes.. Grab it for her :)
£100+: Why does no one give home gifts any more? If you got her a really nice wall decoration or something that she could put in her room, she’d love it! Alternatively, get her a really nice piece of jewellery! Cheekily find out her ring size.. And if you’re a guy.. YES! A girl will think you’re proposing so only do so if you’re serious.. But we girls promise not to take the ring too seriously ;)
