A custom wedding package may not be the best way to gift your loved one.
Here are some tips for choosing the perfect gift box to suit your needs.
Choose a gift box that has a unique touch to it.
For instance, a custom-designed wedding gift card may come with a design and a signature on it, or a custom gift box might be crafted out of custom wood.
Choose something that is easy to open and use.
“I’ve always been a DIY person and I’ve always liked to use my hands,” says Amy, 28, a mother of two who works as a receptionist at a community centre.
“But when I got married, I felt like I had to open a gift in order to use it.
So I wanted something that was really simple to use and could be opened with one hand.”
Choose your favourite gift.
“My husband and I both love to get up early and go out and shop, so we both have different kinds of gifts,” Amy says.
“So I love to bring him something with me in the morning to use before bed.
So we have an old gift box and a new one.
I love using the old one because it’s just a little bit more functional and looks a little more stylish.”
Don’t be shy.
“There are some people who think they’re just going to do it and not give a s—,” Amy adds.
“That’s not going to work for me.
I’m not the type to say, ‘This is how I do it, it’s not how you do it’.
I know what I like.”
“It’s a little like when you’re picking out a gift for a family member,” Amy explains.
“They’ll have different needs and different preferences and they want a certain colour or a certain style.
So you’re trying to pick something that you think they’ll really like.
But the truth is, a lot of things you buy at the supermarket will have been done by someone else and there’s no way for them to know what you’re getting. “
A lot of people think that if they like something, it will be easy to use.
But the truth is, a lot of things you buy at the supermarket will have been done by someone else and there’s no way for them to know what you’re getting.
Or if you’re a fan of something, just pick something you’re not familiar with.” “
Just do a search online, see what the other person is getting, and if it’s something that’s not yours, say so.
Or if you’re a fan of something, just pick something you’re not familiar with.”
“We love to experiment and try things,” Amy notes.
“For me, it always comes down to a combination of different things.
If I can’t find something that works for me, I’ll buy something that does.”
Take time to do your research.
“When we were kids, we used to do our own research and try stuff.
We would go to the local store, pick up a couple of things and we would go home and see what we liked, which was the best experience,” Amy laughs.
The secret to a great gift is the research, and knowing what to look for and how to look at things,” she adds.
Don’ t buy everything at once.
“At first I would buy everything in a box,” Amy shares.
“Then I thought, ‘I’m going to buy these things in different sizes and colours.’
But I’m very good at buying smaller things.”
Use your imagination.
“Sometimes I just like something that comes in a different colour and shape,” she says.
For example, Amy loves her custom gift boxes made from recycled cardboard.
“If you’re going to make something out of plastic, you can make it just like the box you bought it in, or just different colours.
But if you don’t have that colour, you might want to make it white, or even purple.”
Get your budget together.
“Once you’ve researched what you want, then you’ll need to spend a little money on it,” Amy advises.
But at the end of the day, if you have a budget, it can be worth it.” “
And then you’re looking at a few different things, so it might be a few months before you actually find something you like.
But at the end of the day, if you have a budget, it can be worth it.”
Get something from the local gift shop.
“Gift boxes are the easiest way to get a local item,” Amy suggests.
“Maybe it’s a gift you’ve never seen before.
Or maybe you want to buy something you’ve always wanted.
It can all be so cheap and it can all go to a local shop.
So it’s really
