We all have those friends who just seem to have it all, their home is kitted out with all the latest gadgets and luxurious furniture.
In fact they just have everything! The most lavish gift you can think of they probably already have. Buying an expensive gift just seems so impersonal. How do you buy a gift for these friends and make it one to remember?
‘Our love story’ Photo shoot
Book a photo shoot that will provide a keepsake of their lives together, maybe re-enacting how they met, maybe re-enacting one or two memories made along the way such as a cruise or it could be her crashing his car. Create memories of the highlights of their lives together in a fun and romantic way.
Coffee Table book
Print a unique coffee table book filled with their favourite things or joint hobbies as well as personal photos and memories. Add a few quirky messages or love poems for that extra special touch. You may have to plan this one far in advance as it can take a bit of time.
Personalised gift picnic basket
You can purchase them a picnic basket and fill it will all sorts of delicious goodies, such as cheese and wine, crackers and fig jam, chocolate, strawberries, even add a cosy picnic blanket. You can add some extra little items, maybe a map of the area or a couple of magazines. The couple can then go on a romantic picnic on their honeymoon.
Wine tasting road trip
Pre plan a mapped out wine route for them and give them cash for some wine purchases or pre order wine for them to collect. Map it out in a creative little scrapbook or homemade map. Even add a personalised mixed CD or loaded romantic music on an iPod to go along with the road trip. Maybe even offer to be the designated taxi driver or personal tour guide.
Book an outdoor adventure
Book something to get that adrenaline pumping. You could book rock climbing, canoeing, surf lessons, a guided mountain hike or even a game drive. Depending on what interests they have. Make sure to take note of things they have said they would like to do or you know they would like. It would be no good booking a tandem skydive if one of them has a fear of heights.
His and Her Message
A relaxing day at the Spa for the both of them could be the perfect gift. A His and Her hot stone massage or a morning at the Spa where they can choose their own package and sit in the Jacuzzi and drink champagne.
It is all about the experience, about being together and doing together! That is what creates the best memories. The couple will look back on this kind of gift more fondly than the latest designer flower vase that they could just get themselves. Get creative! A little bit of DIY mixed with some love and time and you can come up with a unique gift experience.
