We all have gotten to that moment, at least once or twice, where we avoided getting someone a gift; or stressed the hell out on just the thought of buying a present. But have we ever stopped and thought why we’re just so bad at simply getting a someone something they like?
First, let us tell you this, my friend: you are not alone.
The thing with buying gifts is that you have to think about so many details that you most likely end up getting overwhelmed. The closer a friend’s birthday gets, or as your mom’s friend’s daughter/son’s big day approaches, our mind starts to make innumerable calculations about what we should get them, what kind of wrapping we should do, what they like best, whether they would even like the gift we have in mind for them, and most importantly, how much money we should set for the present’s budget. But, we’ve got your back and here to tell you how to solve this problem that probably half the population faces.
Here’s how it goes…
HOW EVERY BAD GIFT STARTS
As your friend’s birthday approaches, the first thing that will mostly pop up to your head is the gift YOU would like to get.
RECIPE OF THE PERFECT GIFT
Nowadays, with the help of technology, we don’t really have to step outside and spend so much time and energy searching for the best thing to buy someone. So, if you ever get stuck at buying your loved one a gift, we suggest you follow these following steps for a more structured gift shopping:
1. Make a list of what the person likes.
2. Take some time to stalk their social media accounts as a reference (or you can check other online articles if that helps!).
3. Set a budget for the gift and wrapping altogether.
4. Welcome to gift-giving in the 21st century = giftopiia.
GIFT SHOPPING WITH A CLICK
We’d like to introduce you to our most recent favorite platform: giftopiia. It’s a newly-launched, Egyptian website that’s been created to help you pick the perfect gift for your loved ones, according to their personality, and basically for any occasion (usual or unusual) that comes to mind.
BROWSING THE WEBSITE
It’s a simple, easy-to-browse, gift-recommendation engine; in just a four-step process, it shows curated gift boxes based on who you’re shopping for, and for which occasion. Whether you’re living in Egypt or outside Egypt, you can send a specially-curated gift for your loved one as long as they are in Egypt. All you have to do is register on the website, then follow these steps:
1. Choose a color for your gift box from 3 super fancy colors, which are: matte black, original crème, or midnight blue.
2. Then, pick which items you’d like to add to the box, and here giftopiia made it SO MUCH easier for us by categorizing the gifts according to:
- The type of the product, where you can select that person’s primary interest from categories like beauty, books, board games, electronics, home accessories, and more!
- The season or the occasion of the gift, be it for Mother’s Day, for him/her/unisex, self-care, babysitting, friend’s nigh, and literally occasions you haven’t even thought of.
3. Now, to complete your box, choose the card you want to send to your loved one along with the box. Here, you have the choice to whether write down (in 120 characters) the message you want to add on the card, and giftopiia team will add it directly on the card, or you can have the gift delivered to you (anywhere in Egypt), so you can write the card and gift the whole thing yourself.
4. Last, but not least, just add the shipping information of the person you want to send the gift box to, proceed to payment, then enjoy gifting!
NO TIME TO PREPARE? EASY!
If you are the lazy type or the easily-overwhelmed one, don’t worry! The website has curated gift boxes for gifting; no need to surf a whole bunch of products, just pick the gift box according to the occasion, such as: the game box, the beauty boxy, the night-in box, and others like:
- Beauty box
- Self-Care box
- Toy box
- Friends box
- Harry Potter box
- Be My Valentine Box
UNUSUAL OCCASIONS TO GIVE PRESENTS
But… wait a minute! There are way more occasions to gift people than just birthdays or weddings; Want to get someone a gift for having a new job? giftopiia has it. Want to get a friend a present for leaving a toxic relationship? It’s there. Want to get your BFF a gift for being promoted or even demoted? All in one website. So, usual or crazy occasions, you’ve got a whole team at your service.
NO EXCUSES FOR NOT BUYING GIFTS (OOPS!)
These days, distancing ourselves from our loved ones, is actually considered a form of… love! Meaning, not even a pandemic or a global lockdown can stop you from showing love and care to your person, especially if their primary love language is receiving gifts!
So, the thing with giftopiia is that it’s not just like any other online gift shop; it provides you with some genius ways to find the best gift to give someone, even during a whole pandemic; their smart categories and products that cater for all kinds of people with their different interests and personalities, which definitely adds more sentimentality to the gift. And all while using tactics to spare you time, energy, and, well… mental agony. LOL.
