One of the best things I started to collect in my 30s are gifts. Not gifts for me from other people, although those are also greatly appreciated, but gifts to give.
A ‘gift closet’ is a just a collection of gifts to keep in on hand for those “Oops, I forget that it’s my dad’s birthday!” or “Crap!! I forgot to go buy a housewarming present!” moments. Believe me, they happen to the best of us, because you know you know…that’s just life and it full of unexpected moments.
Now, the typical and basic ‘gift closet’ tends to be have a few bottles of wine and stashes of blank greeting cards and gift cards to random restaurants and what not. Don’t get me wrong, those are definitely nice to have on hand and are the ultimate clutch player. However, when it comes to close friends and family, a bottle of wine in a gift bag just won’t feel genuine and personable, which is the core of a any good gift.So, to avoid giving impersonal gifts, I like to occasionally pick out random, but unique items that can be great gifts for men and gifts for women and stash them away.
This is the best time of year to start adding more gift closet items, because once the holiday shopping season, you might not have the time or money to buff up your gift stash. So, here are some unique and personable items that will help you always be armed with an affectionate gift.
DIY Smartphone Projector – Bluetooth Tracking Tag – Come In, Go Away Doormat – Tea To Go – Aromatherapy Shower Kit
FYI – I have the Tea To Go and is awesome! It has saved me so many morning when I’m running behind. Although, it’s mostly used for brewing tea, I also use it to make quick water detoxes my combining some of fruits with my water. I gifted my brother with the bluetooth tracking tag for his birthday last month and he loves it.
Now, I need to add that shower kit to my life.
