Sometimes finding the right birthday gift is difficult. The gifts that are most often treasured are those where thought has been given to make it meaningful and personal. Personalized gifts do not have to be expensive. The expression, “It’s The Thought That Counts” is cliche, but it really is true. Gifts can be making someone their favorite cupcake, a handmade card, babysit the kids for an afternoon, or wash Dad’s car.
For office co-workers, a $5 giftcard from their favorite coffee spot or offer to help with a work project so that they can have a long lunch or leave work early if it’s okay with the office policy.
These birthday gifts are always favorites. You can never go wrong with a birthday cake, ice cream, a birthday gift book, or a bottle of wine with a personalized label. Take a peek at the slideshow below for some always appreciated favorites.
