Top 10 Memorable Gifts

If you’re currently racking your brain trying to think up something cool to buy your dad for his next birthday, or you’re in a whirlwind of indecision because you can’t find a suitable graduation present for your younger sister – rest assured. There are millions of superb gifts out there and all you've got to do is look for them. Here’s a guide to 10 of the most memorable gifts you can buy for a loved one. 


There are special editions of most albums these days, so why not find out what your recipient’s all time favorite album is and search for a super special edition copy? There are bound to be songs on there that they’ve never heard before – that is, unless they’re one of those annoying super fans who've done everything, heard everything and seen everything to do with their favorite artist. In that case, get them a trumpet. 


If your loved one is a big reader – you’ve got an easy job, really. You can either indulge their passion further by getting them a Kindle or some other kind of e-reader. Or you can find a special edition of their favourite book and present it to them in a decorative box or sleeve. 


Don’t panic, they don’t have to be homemade by you – though that would make your gift super special, says journalist Hani Shabbir. Think handmade jewellery, hand carved ornaments and beautiful, handmade garments. If you’re looking for a gift for a special lady in your life, handmade jewellery can be a great way to go. 


On the other hand, if you’re looking for a gift for your dad, brother or uncle – why not invest in an impressive gadget or piece of technology? Take a little bit of time and look through the many gadget websites available online. You’re bound to find a cool gift in no time, say the experts at A robot monkey that serves tea? Yes, please. 


Buying clothes as gifts can be extra tricky – especially if you’re not sure what size you’re buying for. The fact that you’ve gone to the trouble of finding out though, will make you look like an extremely attentive, caring gift giver. Take a similarly sized friend shopping with you if it helps.


We all know that one guy or girl who’s obsessed with collecting – sometimes it’s action figures, sometimes it’s jewellery, sometimes it’s nothing more expensive than a model making magazine or a teddy bear. Gifting somebody with a collectible piece shows that you’re interested in the things that make that person happy. 


Once again, this doesn’t have to be a round the world trip or a week long holiday to Moscow. Travel based gifts can be as simple as a trip to the zoo or a weekend in the city. Take your loved one somewhere nice and spoil them like they've never been spoilt before. 


Most people have heard of the term ‘experience voucher’ and know what that kind of gift entails. If you don’t, however, listen up. An experience voucher is a packaged activity that’s unusual or extreme in nature. Experience vouchers can be anything from the chance to fly a plane, to extreme Go Karting, to an hour spent in a wind tunnel, to wine tasting, to race car driving and much, much more.

Video Games

If you know somebody who’s obsessed with playing video games – does it not make sense to wow them with a special edition of their favourite one, or a copy of a game that they’ve been dying to play for ages? Drop a few hints the week before you’re due to give them your gift. Ask them about the games that they like to play and what it is they’re dying to get stuck into – then, head them off at the pass and beat them to it. They’ll love you for it.  


It’s nice to think that if you genuinely couldn’t afford a showy or expensive gift – your friend or loved one would adore whatever it is you could manage to give them. So, if you really can’t afford to buy big gifts this year – why not show your love by checking out Katies Cards and sending a specially designed, heartfelt e-card. They’re personal, they’re quirky and they can be unique to you and your loved one.
