With busy schedules as well many choices and conveniences these days, it can be easy to just choose something trendy or flashy instead of something meaningful when it comes to giving someone a gift. The experience of gift giving is more special when you consider the tastes, need and preferences of the recipient. You can go the extra mile by making the gift meaningful as well. 

Personalized Gifts Are Popular
Studies show that people prefer personalized or thoughtful gifts more than generic ones. This is because the recipient feels more of an attachment to the gift and therefore appreciates the effort more. Sites like Etsy are great for finding personalized or unique options for your loved ones. Popular personalized gifts range from storybooks for children to chains with pendants for teens and adults. You can also further personalize jewelry items to make them even more meaningful. Personalized gift are a great way to show someone how special they are to you.

Show Love With Food
Most of the time, cooking is enough to show someone how much you care. The best part about cooking for someone you care about is that you can do it together. That's why having fun and passing the time by cooking together can be a marvelous idea. So open a bottle of wine, turn on some music and get to work. Remember to have fun and enjoy the time together. Creating special memories is a gift too and don't forget to take photos so you have a memento of the experience.

The Gift Of Time
Time is gift which most people don't appreciate enough. Time is a precious luxury and the only thing you can never get back. This is why you should make a point to spend time with loved ones when possible. 

• Take walks in your favorite place, even if it means taking a trip out of town.
• Do something your loved one enjoys, such as their favorite hobby or game.
• Plan a romantic and intimate evening together without interruption from work.

Many relationship experts agree you should make time for the people closest to you at least once per week. Even if it's just having dinner together, you strengthen bonds by being together. This is a gift for yourself as well as those you are spending your time with.

Flowers To Brighten Someone's Day
Giving flowers is a special tradition that has been going on for a long time all over the world. In different cultures, different flowers and even their colors have come to mean different things. But the ritual is still done today, and the floral industry is worth hundreds of billions of dollars around the world. Of course you can give flower for events like anniversaries and birthdays but why not make someone's day by sending them flowers when there is no occasion just to let them know you're thinking of them. 
Photographic Memories
With smartphones, cameras are everywhere these days. According to the latest figures, the average person has around 2,000 images on their phone. This means you should have a vast assortment of images to choose from for making something special. A photo album is an easy yet memorable and meaningful gift for a friend. You can also make something a little more special such as a memory scrapbook for family or your partner. Or you can also  create digital memento such as a DVD slideshow of treasured memories.

Gifts that have meaning are likely to be much more appreciated and remembered than something that you buy from a store. So consider putting in some extra effort and thought to show the special people in your life how much you care.
