This year has been one full of ups and downs, hasn’t it! We may not have been able to spend as much time with our loved ones as we would like to, but we can still show them how much we care. Especially as it's looking less likely that we won't get to see them at Christmas. So if you’re looking to help inspire and delight your loved ones this year, meaningful gifts are the answer.
What makes for a meaningful gift?
A meaningful gift is something that helps you feel seen and understood. It reminds you that you’re loved and cherished. Because we all know, gift buying isn’t always easy, and not all gifts do make us feel that way. (Just think about all the mugs, socks and smellies sets that get bought at Christmas!).
But it’s amazing how a well-thought-out gift can really make you feel special. It doesn’t just make you feel special when you receive it; it makes you feel special every time you look at it, touch it or wear it. That’s why personalised gifts often mean more - they show you thought about the other person, and you took the time to plan a gift that meant something to them.
Price isn’t something that dictates a great gift.
\Price and size don’t often come into it (unless you’re looking for something small enough to post). It’s the thought that goes into a gift that makes it great. When you give someone a gift that means something to them, you’re building, growing and deepening a connection with them. You’re showing you care and are thinking of them, even when you’re not with them.
And at the moment, that’s such an important thing to remind our loved ones. This year hasn’t all been sunshine and flowers. There have been long periods of lockdown and isolation, and we must show each of our friends, family and loved ones that we’re there for them. We may not be able to be there in person physically, but we’re there with our thoughts, heart and soul.
And that’s why meaningful gifts mean so much to the giver and the recipient.
Meaningful gifts your loved ones can treasure
Here at Bella and Bow, we love that every gift you buy can be a beautiful, inspiring and meaningful one. Whether you’re engraving a personal or secret text on a photo frame or adding a fingerprint or handprint to an item of jewellery, adding that little extra magic helps create a gift that will delight. And it will also capture your most special memories, thoughts and feelings so that you can share them with others.
And it’s that magic that turns a gift into something really special.
We’re always on the lookout to make our keepsakes and gifts that little bit extra special. That’s why we’re running a 20% off all handprint gifts this weekend. It’s running from the 13th-16th Nov, making it the perfect time to purchase meaningful gifts for that someone special in your life - so check out our personalised gifts, here.
