Use inside jokes as inspiration: Instead of going for a random item of clothing or gadget, think of gifts that connect to an inside joke you have with them to make them smile. It might not be practical, but it's way more thoughtful.(Unsplash)

Make the random item more meaningful: If you are going for clothes, gadgets, tools or the type of stuff you see on gift guides at this time of year, add on a related experience to make it more meaningful. Example, if you get them a pasta maker, include a pasta cookbook or pasta making class to do together.(Unsplash/Anastasia Anastasia)

Make memories together: If they already have everything or don't want more "stuff" go for an experience gift instead. Do something you've both never tried, or something relating to their hobbies/interests, or gift them an experience for an upcoming vacation.(Unsplash/Carrie Borden)

Make the unboxing fun: You can show someone you're thinking of them by making the unboxing or unwrapping experience unique. You can make your own wrapping paper by drawing cartoons/comic strips on printer paper and wrapping gifts in that. But even if you don't have artistic abilities think about how you can make that experience more memorable.(Pexels)

Consumable gifts are usually appreciated: If you haven't known this person long, consider gifting something consumable is an easy and thoughtful way to go. Consider what their favorite foods are, if they drink alcohol or not, what cuisines they love etc. This is another good option for the person who has everything or doesn't like material gifts.(Pexels)

Think of something that represents your relationship: Instead of going for a gift that's inspired just by their interests, favourite things and hobbies, try going for a present that connects to your relationship - what you both enjoy, Things you bond over and memories you've made.(Pexels )
