When it comes to getting gifts, going down the route of fashion and beauty can seem like a daunting prospect. Even if you’re particularly savvy and you know your friend or family member’s style even better than they know it, you never know just how picky someone might be. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t get them something for their look that they aren’t guaranteed to get excited by. Here are a few ways to pick those sure things.
Improve the look, don’t change it
One of the issues of picking fashion items for someone is that they might think it’s a bit of a backhanded compliment of a gift. Some think of it as akin to getting them a cookbook of healthy recipes and wonder why you want to change them. Instead, you can help them get gifts that are about improving or adding more choice to their look rather than changing it. For instance, there are a lot of great beauty sets like the Julep Beauty Box that have plenty of options, instead of just imposing one thing on them. These boxes update regularly, too, so you can be sure that you’re getting them something in-season and in-style.
Something that’s so “you”
If there’s one part of the outfit that is most versatile in sticking through trend and season alike, it’s the right accessory. A pair of sunglasses, the bag that goes with anything, accessories are a girl’s best friend. But you can make an accessory much more than versatile. You can make it have a personal impact by going for a bespoke option instead of the generic. Options like a Soufeel name necklace are more than just versatile accessories. The level of personalization that goes into them can make them all the more emotionally valuable to the recipient. It’s your little way of celebrating them as a person. You can even get personalized items with both your names, making it symbolic of a friendship well worth celebrating.
When in doubt
There are few items that most women can’t really turn down. These are the staples of the wardrobe and getting them can help any friend or family member really complete their look. Such staples include a pair of good jeans, a leather jacket, or even a selection of ballet flats. They might not be the most inspired of gifts, but they’re also amongst the most budget friendly if you’re looking to save money. If you’re not, then you can buy a few staples at once and all of a sudden, you’ve helped your loved one really complete their wardrobe. It’s a great functional gift, which can honestly be of much more appeal to them than something out there.
You might very well have that one friend or family member that’s just picky enough to not fully appreciate the gift mentioned above. If that’s the case, why not treat them just by taking them out for an item of their choice? Sometimes, the experience of choosing can matter as much as the choice.
