5 Proven Ways to Make Christmas Gifts Meaningful


When you have an endless list of recipients to check off, choosing gifts can turn into a frenzy of rushed and uninspired choices. Without adding any personal touch, holiday gift giving may feel a little empty. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The following tips can help make the process more fulfilling for both the giver and the recipient.

1. Get to know the person.
Put in the effort to really tailor the gift to the person. It’s important to show that you really know the recipient well, and you really care about them. This generally means that people who buy meaningful gifts don’t choose based on what they’d like to give, but rather on what the recipient would really want to receive. If you consider a gift as an expression of truly knowing what a person wants, it will go a long way in making them feel special.

2. Give personalized gifts.
If there’s a golden rule of Christmas gifts, it’s this: Never forget the power of personalization (e.g. monogrammed or personalized gifts). A great example is if you gift a person a statement tote bag with their name embroidered on it. They’ll often think of you when they use it years after. Gifts should be about expressing gratitude and one of the best ways to do this is with one-of-a-kind gifts.

3. Focus on experiences, not price.
Think about creating a positive experience for the receiver, rather than concentrating on the price of the item. People who receive simple, meaningful gifts feel more connected to the gift giver than people who receive expensive items. Think about your recipient’s daily routine, and find out what gifts would make their day better. If they are avid coffee drinkers, for example, a premium coffee press set is your best bet.

4. Pay attention.
As Christmas approaches, keep your ears open for clues on what your recipients may want. You’d be surprised by how many gift ideas you’d get by simply being receptive to information. Have a chat over coffee with your recipient or just casually observe them. They’d love to know that you pay attention.

5. Don’t overthink it.
Try not to put too much pressure on yourself to choose the perfect present—because it doesn’t exist. Simply putting genuine thought and effort will be greatly appreciated. The best way to ensure a great gift is by starting early. You may actually start choosing gifts all year round. If you wait too long, you may not find what you’re looking for and you’ll get stressed, which is never a good mindset for choosing gifts.
