10 Quick Gift Ideas For All The People In Your Life

quick gift ideas for any occasion

If you need a last-minute gift, but don’t know where to begin, don’t worry. These days there are no shortage of ways to get something nice to someone else in a hurry. And, you don’t have to spend tons of money on a gift for it to be appreciated.

If you’re looking for ideas, we compiled this list of ten quick gift ideas that are perfect for any person and any occasion. Whether you’re looking to surprise a friend in need, give a token of thanks to a party host, find the perfect birthday gift, or give a Valentine’s Day gesture, we’ve got you covered.

#1 – If you’re looking for a fool proof and romantic gift, you can’t go past flowers. But they needn’t be of the completely traditional variety. Buzz Blooms available online are a great new way to flower shop: they’re made of recycled saran wrap, last longer than a regular flower, and don’t need water or sunlight. With pearsonsflorist.com, flower delivery is easy and reliable.

#2 – If you want to give a gift that’s not just thrown away after one use, try something unique and valuable. For example, an eco-friendly bamboo cheese board is a great gift for any foodie or entertainer out there.

#3 – If you’re attending a party, try sending a tasteful and fun gift for the hosts. Designer soaps, luxe body products and unique candles are perfect to give as thanks for the party.

#4 – It’s time to start your Christmas shopping early! With so much out there to choose from, start early so you can buy something fun and unique. Customised mugs make great gifts for neighbours, extended family members, work colleagues and any other people you want to show appreciation for.

#5 – If you’re looking for a practical gift idea for a parent with a little one, then try a bathroom kit. These can include everything your baby needs to be ready for bath time: soap, shampoo, lotion, and more.

#6 – Do you know someone who loves gardening? They’ll love seed packets. Seeds are eco-friendly and fun, and they can grow into anything from salad vegetables to a beautiful bunch of flowers.

#7 – For the foodie, you can’t go wrong with a handmade edible gift. Artisanal olive oil, gourmet cheeses, delectable crackers and crisps, these are not only good to look at, they’re delicious as well and make great presents!

#8 – If your friends or family love dogs, you might want to check out the Etsy shop called Doggie Tug. They’re handmade dog toys and they’re super fun, with squeakers in the middle that any dog will love.

#9 – To give a gift to colleagues, nothing is better than sweets, chocolates and nuts. Look for colourful and unusual lollies and chocolates sourced from independent purveyors such as The Nut Shop in Sydney.

#10 – Lastly, if you want to give something sweet and romantic for Valentine’s Day, try buying a cupcake bouquet. A bouquet will include a dozen real cupcakes, tied up like flowers. What a sweet and tasty idea!
