There are so many creative gifts out there that it can be hard to focus or even know where to start. If you don't consider yourself a creative thinker or just go blank under pressure, we have some tips that will get your wheels turning and moving in the right direction to find unique gifts for everyone in your life.
If you really want to give a creative gift you have to give yourself enough time to think of something. A tight deadline is a creativity killer so aim for at least four weeks to do your research and get it done.
Jot down all of the things about the person that makes them creative, special or unique to you. It could be things they own, things they say, things they do or just the way they make you feel. This list will really help you figure out what you want to celebrate with your unique gifts.
Well, not really. But, we do want our gifts to be from us almost more than we want them to reflect how well we know the receiver. Just saying. Think about what of your traits you want to exploit through this gift. Do they love your taste in music? Do they adore your sense of style? Do they love your sense of humor or predictable nature? These are all great starting points for gift brainstorming!
The most creative gifts come from your own two hands. There's something unmatched in the creativity and kindness that goes into a handmade gift whether it's edible, wearable, art, a joke or something for the home.
