How to Find Unique Birthday Gifts Your Recipient Will Love?

Know Your Recipient

Write down everything that you know about your recipient – hobbies, areas of interest, what he does for a living, future plan, things he loves to do on his free time, things he mentioned that he wants on different occasions… Now make a list of gift ideas he might like. This process takes only 10-15 minutes and you'll end up with quite a long list of ideas.


Simply ask him what he wants for his birthday. This is the best (and the safest) way to get a birthday gift your recipient really wants…

Wish list

To make it a win-win for everyone ask the birthday boy to create a wish list. A wish list is similar to a gift registry – the owner browses the online store and adds items he likes to the gift list. Others can browse the list, select a gift and buy it. Gifts that were bought can't be bought again (to avoid duplications).

Group Gift

A birthday is a great opportunity to get the birthday boy a big expensive gift that will make him really really happy. Team up and get that special birthday gift.

I know what you're thinking – a group gift is a real pain in the *** - It means that

one of you will pay and then chase after the others to get his money back…:0(

EBay has an excellent application that makes the process so much fun and easy. You decide on a gift, start a GROUP GIFT, invite friends and family and everyone pay their share directly to EBay (No one is charged until the gift is fully funded).

Experience Gift

One of the most special birthday gifts you can give is an experience gift. Take your loved one to a day of fun doing something he will really enjoy. Don't forget to take some photos and give them to the birthday boy.

Unique Gift Card

Giving a gift card as a birthday present is a good option as long as you put some thought in it. Get a gift card he would really enjoy to spend. Here are some gift card ideas:

  • A gift card to her favorite clothing store.
  • Gift certificate to specialty store where he can buy supplies or parts for his special hobby.
  • A card to a workshop he'll enjoy like cooking, chocolate candy making, salsa dancing…
  • Birthday gift cards to things she use on regular basis like – manicure, car wash, cleaning service, dry cleaning, Pilates/yoga classes, coffee shop…
  • A gift card to a Consultation Meeting with career consultant, interior designer, personal trainer, nutritionist…

The Setting

The setting that you make around the big day can have a big impact on the recipient. You can decorate the house with balloons and Happy Birthday posters and bake (or buy) a birthday cake. Imagine the look on his face when he will wake up in the morning or when he'll open the door when he returns from work and see this… Or you can plan a surprise party in his honor. These are things he won't forget for a long time :0)
