Gifts for Friends: How To Choose Gifts for Your Friends



How to Choose Meaningful Friendship Gifts

Here at Letterbox Gifts, we think it’s extremely important to always attentively buy gifts. Maybe it’s because we are gift specialists… but we believe when buying gifts for friends, family and any other loved ones, it’s important to always pay attention not just to what you’re buying, but also to the person you’re buying for. What is it about this person that makes them the person you love? And how can this come through in your gift buying?

Presents are all about personality and so your gift should definitely say a little bit about you and a whole lot about your friend. Will they be looking for a funny gift? Or a special experience like an outdoor adventure, dinner or a movie? Do they love unwrapping presents and trying something new? These questions will be answered by looking at your friendship and reminding yourself of the things that really bring you both together. The first question, and the big question, is what type of person are they?

The Friend in Need of a Treat

The sentimental value of a thoughtful gift can’t be denied. Sometimes when it comes to buying gifts for our friends, we have to ask more difficult questions too. Is your friend going through a difficult time? Are they under the weather or stressed at work or university? Thoughtful presents can act as the perfect pick me up. A Pamper Gift Set is a sweet way to remind your friend to relax. Here at Letterbox Gifts, our pampering gift set is made with luxury all natural products. Each of these gift sets is perfectly designed to make the lucky person feel special and pampered.



The Beauty Specialist Friend

These pamper gifts sets are also great for that friend who loves a bit of luxury and never says no to a special treat. She loves taking care of her skin and hair and commits to a deep face mask every Sunday morning. She is the friend who offers make up and skincare tips you probably didn’t ask for - and you love her anyway. She is likely always on the look-out for the next big beauty product and continues to surprise you with her flawlessness. You can surprise her this time with a gorgeous pampering gift set for her birthday.

The Sweet Tooth

We all know there is always more than one sweet tooth in the group. (Everybody raise their hands!) Sweet treats are the perfect gift for this friend who never says no to chocolate, sweets or bubble gum. Our Chocolate Gift Set is a perfect present for the sweet-tooth who wants a little bit of luxury. We pride ourselves on our selection of unique exciting chocolates and they make a fantastic break from the everyday chocolate types. These treats are packed with enough sugar to satisfying the sweetest of tastes!

The Tea Lover

We all have that friend who is a tea loving purist! They will be the first to incite a debate about putting the milk in first or not - or whether to put milk in at all! Getting your tea loving friend the perfect present can be surprisingly difficult. Tea lovers are always, rightfully, fussy. So it is important to know your friend’s likes and dislikes so you can surprise them with a gorgeous Tea Gift Set that meets all their requirements. Without all the stress of getting the milk right.

The Quintessential Hippie

We all have a friend who loves natural, locally made products. This friend deserves a gift that perfectly suits their hippie values and aesthetic. You’d buy this friend a gift that shows them you’re mindful of their values and their love of all things herbal and holistic. If you’re looking for something reminiscent of this, see our Signature Gift Set for a traditional gift with a contemporary twist.

We believe gifts are an important part of friendship. And throughout our friendships, we give gifts big and small in a range of ways. It isn’t always something wrapped either. We give our friends the gifts of time, friendship, parties, advice, comfort and a range of things we do for each other everyday. Come to us here at Letterbox Gifts for the not so everyday gifts.
