Everyone is going green these days. People are getting more and more concerned about saving the planet in their small ways. In our interviews, more than 80% of them said a small plant or recycled bags would make amazing gifts.

This idea goes well with the trend of biophilia here in Australia. This trend is taking over so many aspects in the country including architecture and interior design. Architects and designers are making sure there is something sustainable and environmentally friendly to house structures and designs. So, maybe you can buy a potted plant for your friend he can then place on his work desk.

Something to help them save money

This is not just about buying someone something they need. Almost 95% of our interviewees said that a gift that would help the recipient save money is an amazing way to go. With this idea, you can get creative and there is no need to spend a lot of money.

For example, you can buy her a recycled tumbler because you know she keeps on buying bottled water two to three times a day. For this one, you don’t have to include the receipt and it will also help them get rid of some receipts of their own.

If you ask us, this idea is a slam-dunk and will show them how much you care about them. Do you agree?

Gifts and Crafts

Have you ever tried making something with your own hands? Maybe a small vase they can use as a pen holder or maybe an awesome shirt that represents them as an individual. This is not a surprise for us. What took us for a spin was the specific ideas our interviewees put forward.

This one might be hard, especially for people who don’t have a creative bone in their body. But that is actually alright. You can always learn how to make something for someone. Especially if that someone is a special person.

Local Produce

This is not a common answer, but it is worthy of being shared. Some of the interviewees said that local produce or fresh products are amazing gifts. What also makes this idea stand out is that you can buy them on the exact day you’ll be giving someone a gift. The fresher the better, right?

If the individual you are about to give a gift to is a chef or maybe a foodie, then local produce is always a great way to go.

What do you think of these ideas? Pretty awesome, right?
