Gifts that keep on Giving

Choosing the right gift for someone can be tricky. Will they like it? Have I spent enough? Is it the right thing? I’m sure we’ve all asked ourselves these questions at least once. And when it comes to anniversary gifts nothing gets easier. Some of us struggle enough remembering the dates never mind getting gifts.

Still, whether you’re celebrating a wedding anniversary or similar I think it’s important to give a gifts that keep on giving, creating and cherishing memories that last forever. Here’s three simple yet memorable gift ideas to give you some inspiration:

Memory Board

Sometimes there’s nothing better than sitting down with a loved one and reminiscing. If you’re stuck for time or even if you’re not, a memory board is a lovely gift that will keep you talking, laughing and maybe even crying for hours.

Pickup a cork board from your local stationary store. These days most major supermarkets carry boards like this and are relatively cheap.

Next, go through all your snaps and start printing ones which mean a lot to you and your loved one. Holidays, parties, big occasions; all these pictures will be great for your board. It’s good to throw in a few embarrassing ones too!

Before you start printing, make sure you’ve got enough ink! There’s nothing worse than running out halfway through your board. Investing in a HP Instant Ink Printer could be worthwhile if your board goes down well. They’ll send replacement inks before yours run out, how cool is that?! Checkout the video below to see it in action:


A Letter

Like the memory board, a handwritten letter is something that your loved one can re-read at anytime. Explain how much they mean to you, recount some of your favourite memories with them. You could even include some Polaroid style photos in the envelope too!

With handwritten letters and printed pictures becoming a thing of the past, this gift makes it even more special.

A Magazine Subscription

This gift literally keeps on giving. Sign up for your loved ones favourite magazine to be delivered every time there is a new edition, simple right?
