There will come a day when you will give a gift to your crush. It could be during a birthday party, or Christmas, or just a casual house party. Here are some tips and tricks that could actually make him/her fall for you after receiving your gift.
1. A Specific Interest
For starters, please avoid personalized gifts at all costs! For instance, avoid getting a bracelet with their name on it, or worse, with both your names on it! If anything, it could just be a turn off. Instead, try finding out what they are really interested in. For example, if they are into games, I would recommend some of these items.
They must have mentioned their interests at some point, either during a conversation or via their social media accounts, for instance, their favorite series, movies, games, and so on (please do not find out via stalking!). To sum up, a ‘specific interest’ basically shows that their interests matter to you and that you embrace them.
I mean, as a Studio Ghibli fan myself, a good example would be, if someone got me a gift card or a pink wallet while the other got me a Totoro plush, I know which one would leave a heart-warming impression.
2. The Gift of Music
Music has the ability to awaken strong, magical, or hidden emotions, which could lead to powerful feelings. For this reason, try getting them musical gifts such as music boxes or a USB Mixtape; I would advise the latter because you’ll have the opportunity to add your own selection of songs. For example, pick a song you know they’ll love, or add some old and nostalgic songs to the mixtape; it will definitely pull some strings.
3. Latest version or Limited editions
By the latest version or limited editions, I do not mean the latest Playstation or the latest iPhone. It’s never a good idea to surprise your crush with a pricy gift; as a matter of fact, getting something expensive might only make things awkward.
From fashion and beauty products to sneakers and watches, almost every industry will release a limited-edition product. They might immediately notice that it’s a Limited Edition, but if not, then I don’t see any harm in mentioning it. Try something along the line of “I know you love body mists, this is the limited edition version from…”. Now that’s a sweet way of pointing out how special they are to you.
4. A Gift to their loved ones
It may sound strange to a lot of people, but it’s perfectly normal. It basically means a gift to their loved ones, for example, their children, nieces, nephew, or even their pet. It shows that you want to be a part of their lives and you care about the people they love. The gift itself doesn’t really matter; it could be anything from toys to accessories; it is the thought that counts. However, this won’t work during birthdays; it’ll actually just be weird. It will only be possible during casual visits or gatherings where you’d expect to see or meet their loved ones.
5. An Inspirational Book
A book is always a great gift. Therefore, you should take the opportunity to choose a book that could indirectly convey your message. The following are just some examples, but there are endless choices of inspirational books which I’m pretty sure will put a smile on their faces – and their hearts.
6. Rose in a Glass Dome
How direct are you planning to be with your feelings, because this one will definitely stand out! In a good way, nevertheless. Inspired by Beauty and the Beast, this enchanted rose is somewhat beyond dreamy. It’ll be a secret way of telling him or her that your love only grows stronger as time goes by.
7. Beautiful Wall Art Print
A gift of art, nothing beats a beautiful piece of art. A bonus if they are already into art, and if not, you are still giving an elegant gift. Keep in mind, they are going to have to place it somewhere, which means whenever they come across it, they will think of you. For this reason, you should make a wise decision and pick an attractive or unusual art print. Make sure it’s an impressive piece; it could be complex or funny; either way, it will leave an impression. Here are a few examples, but there are countless other choices out there. Only you would make the right decision.
8. Sweet-scented Candles
Candles are beautiful, and scents can be a powerful memory trigger. Therefore, a sweet-scented candle should never disappoint. The best part about giving a candle as a gift is that you can propose lighting it up immediately, and as a result, creating a sweet moment you will both cherish to remember. There are tons of choices out there; make sure you pick something memorable or unusual such as Homemade Sugar Cookie, Cherry Blossom, or Ocean Blue Mist. It’s a bonus if they end up loving the scent because they’ll light it more often, and consequently, remembering you.
9. Everything will be alright
Everyone has their own battles, and your crush will not be an exception. Your crush could also be fighting a battle you know nothing about, and for this reason, an “uplifting gift” will always make a sweet and heart whelming gift. The gift itself could be a piece of inspiring jewelry with uplifting messages. It could also be a mug or a keychain; all that matters is the message. The following are some examples:
10. A Fun Trophy
Design custom awards or trophies to show your crush that they are the best in what they do or what they love doing. For example, ‘The Best Baker’, or ‘Football Player of the year’ and so on. A trophy could be a fun gift to give, I mean everyone loves being appreciated, and this is taking appreciation to a whole new level! The best way is to make it sweet and funny without overdoing it. You can find a lot of customizable trophies on Amazon; or design a beautiful award on Zazzle.
There you have it! I guess they loved it, and your crush is now your sweetheart! It’s time to turn it up a notch and get a “couple gift“! Ok, all jokes aside, but I’m pretty sure this day will come. There are no specific timings or rules for feelings to develop. However, making the right moves, or should I say giving the right gift, could be a game-changer!
