Do you dread the thought of having to find the perfect birthday gift for a friend or family member?

Everyone is unique and gone are the days of the cookie-cutter gift. With online sales booming due to our changing global economy, the options are endless. With the right amount of research and a savvy shopping attitude, you’re sure to bag a bargain while sourcing the perfect memorable gift.

Tip #1 – Know your person

What are their hobbies and interests? Are they in their own home, engaged or have children? Are they practical or do they prefer something pampering? Maybe they enjoy entertaining? Make a list and possible ideas that align with their personality and interests.

Tip #2 – Set your budget

Many businesses are offering sales year-round so you are bound to grab a saving, whether this be on the product, a combo deal or on postage. The beauty during these times is that you can post your gift direct to the recipient if you are unable to visit them.

Tip #3 – You don’t have to go big

Remember that a gift doesn’t have to be big to be appreciated and certainly the cost doesn’t define how much you care. It's the thought, effort and love that goes into a gift and that’s what really counts. That’s why personalised gifts are just so perfect. Not only do they cater for all types of people and budgets, they are completely customisable to suit each individual and are ever so memorable and will be appreciated for years to come.

Tip #4 – Shop local and support Aussie businesses 

More than ever, It's important to show your support for Aussie businesses. By doing this you are helping keep Aussies in a job so they can continue to support their families. Businesses have had to adapt to the changing economic crisis which has put a massive strain on all aspects of their lives.

Personalised Favours creates everything in-house on the beautiful Central Coast, an hour north of Sydney. Endless love and care are applied to each individual product which is why our customers continue to support us.
