One of the joys of giving a gift is finding something that someone will truly love! It’s such an amazing feeling when you watch someone open your gift and you see their face light up with surprise and joy.

However, it can be really difficult to find that ‘perfect’ gift especially if you are rushed and just don’t have time to spend hours and hours shopping. We get discouraged and revert to back to the ‘safe’ option of gift cards!

Don’t get me wrong, gift cards are nice, but it’s far nicer to give a thoughtful and unique gift.
