5 gifts your mum will love this Mother’s Day

We all know what Mother’s Day is all about – yes it’s showing some love for mum! Even if all you can afford is a simple card that spells out how much you appreciate and care about her, it’ll do just fine! For mum, it’s always the thought that counts.

Gift hacks for the men who have it all

So what do you get a guy who has everything (and we mean everything) -you know, like Prince William for example?

It is Prince William’s birthday on Sunday, and most of us would probably think, what could he possibly want? William has been getting great gifts since he was born! He’s got a beautiful wife, gorgeous kids and the throne in the future. And then it’s Father’s Day in almost all parts of the world on Sunday as well – a lot of us are probably stumped for a gift.

Boyfriends, husbands, brothers and dads can be the toughest people to shop for – especially when they are already showered with gifts from everyone, everywhere. The worse thing is, if they have their eyes on something they want, they usually buy it themselves. Aargh! So what do we do?

Having a gift exchange at the office this year? What do you do if you picked a co-worker you barely know or someone who was just hired a week ago?

Engagement party gifts and tips

Engagement party gifts and tips

Many people who are invited to engagement parties are wondering if they need to bring a gift. The truth is, no one is required to bring one for engagement celebrations but if you wish to get the newly engaged a little present, here are some quick tips for you:

  • Ask if they have already set up a gift registry. If they have created one, browse the list and select the ones you wish to give to them.

  • If they don’t have a gift registry yet, you can get them a small gift. Flowers, wine, chocolates, theatre or movie tickets and the like. In many cases, guests would rather save resources to buy a gift for the wedding itself.

  • Get a nice engagement card and put in a monetary gift. Future brides and grooms always appreciate cash because it can easily be applied to their future plans – their honeymoon, a new home or for the wedding itself.

  • If you are buying an edible gift, find out first if the couple has any allergies or food restrictions. It might not do well to get sweet treats for a diabetic or a collection of chocolate covered nuts for someone with peanut allergy.

7 Gifts you should never give someone

7 Gifts you should never give someone

In line with improving your gift-giving skills, Thankyou would like to give you some more tips! Check out the list below and steer clear of these items, unless the person specifically asks for them.

  • A diet cookbook – Don’t. Ever. Unless it was requested by the recipient.

  • Holiday themed items – Don’t give presents that can only be used once a year.

  • Advice books and self-help books  – Again, unless the recipient asks for it, or is fond of collecting these, scratch this item off  your potential gifts.

  • Hair dye – Oh no. It’s screaming, “you need a touch up.”

  • Bathroom scale – Come on. Don’t give something that will possibly torture someone throughout the year.

  • Housecleaning products and air fresheners – Even if it’s in their favorite scent, don’t. It’s  telling them to clean up or saying that their house smells.

  • Waxing gift certificates – Don’t force them to get rid of their body hair.
