You must have spent hours together trying to figure out the perfect gift for your loved one. Now imagine just giving it to them, without even a mere gift wrap! Where is thrill? All the time, that you spent will go in vain, wouldn’t it?
The perfect surprise is not just about the well planned gift. It is also about how you give it to your loved one. They hype and fuss we create around the gift, will make them go “Wow”! And here are a few things that you can try, to make the already perfect gift, even more precious!
The perfect setting
Most of the perfect gifts, that we get for our loved ones, will have a nostalgic touch to it, a memory attached to it. So while giving your gift, choose the perfect location. I got my husband a kite for his birthday, as his most favorite childhood memory is to fly the kite. And I gave it to him on the road, near to his old neighborhood. He was simple surprised on the choice of my gift as well as the location of gifting him. Remember, the setting will add a lot of memory to your perfect gift!
Make them earn their gift. Tease them by playing a small round of treasure hunt or a scavenger hunt. This works for a single perfect gift, as well as for a series of gifts. My husband planned the perfect scavenger hunt with a series of small gift – all of my everyday used items and hid them in every nook and corner of our home.
It took almost 2 hours of tireless searching for me find all of them. Though it was tiring, it was the most amazing 2 hours of my birthday!
Make them guess
Drag a little time and make them a bit more curious about what you have planned for them. Like, in my sister’s wedding, I painted the lovely couple. but instead of handing it to them, I wrapped a few small series of gifts. As and when they received the gift, they had to open it and guess what and why I am making them do this.
The gifts included all the stationary that I had used to create the painting, and finally, I revealed my gift to them! The whole scene played out beautifully and I can still remember the amaze in her and my brother in laws eyes!
A little bit teasing, and a little bit of lying, go hand in hand while planning the perfect surprise for your loved one.
