Ask yourself what that person needs and finally, go for one that you feel will wally make him or her happy.
Make it personal– You can make the gift personal and in a different way. For example, you could create a work of art or write a poem or create a collage of different photographs. Your loved one would sure feel special with an ultra-personalized gift.
Technology is always great– Today, almost everybody is into technology, and it would be great to gift a stylish case for the iPhone that will not just hold their phone but also bank cards and cash. The techies will love having a neoprene protector made from cork for their tablet.
