Gift Ideas to Show How Much You Care

Name a Star After Them

This is one of my favorite gift ideas ever, and I would only ever get this for someone I truly love and see being part of my life for a very long time. You can use any star registry online to name a star after that special someone. Sometimes you can even choose which constellation you want the star to fall into, so if the person is a Gemini, you can choose a star in the Gemini constellation. The registry will then send you a certificate with your star’s name and its coordinates, which you can give to the other person in a nice frame. This gift will show that you value this person so much that you think they should have their very own star, and it’s a gift that will always be timeless. 

Paint Them Something

It’s okay if you don’t consider yourself to be particularly artistic because I definitely am not, and I’ve done something like this as a gift for someone else. You can just find a simple painting tutorial on Youtube and follow along as much as you can, it can even be an abstract painting. What makes this a special gift is that the other person will see that you took the time and effort to make them a personalized gift that only they will have. You can make your painting on a little canvas and give it to them so that they can put it up as a decoration in their room or somewhere in their home. It’s a creative idea that will really showcase the effort you’re willing to put in for this person. 

Give Them a Gift for Each Album by Their Favorite Artist 

I know this one might sound a little confusing, but I just did this for my best friend’s most recent birthday, and she said it was her favorite gift ever, so I think it was a successful gift (originally got the idea from Tik Tok). Her favorite musician is Taylor Swift, so I gave her a gift inspired by a specific lyric from each album – 9 gifts in total. Just to give you an example, I took the lyric “crimson red paint on my lips” from “I Did Something Bad” (Reputation) and gave her a red Mac lipstick. This is such a creative gift idea that anyone will love, and you can base it around whoever their favorite musical artist is.

Follow a Theme

My best friend does this with all of her gifts, and I realized it only makes them so much more meaningful, so I have started doing it too. You just have to choose a specific theme to center your gifts around, whether it be space, cottagecore, a specific color, etc. For example, recently I followed a space theme for a friend’s birthday, and I got her a moon ornament for her room, star lights to hang above her bed, and a candle with a moon-related title. Having a theme connects all of your gifts and makes it all seem a lot more organized and well-thought-out, which will make the person feel special and appreciate the thinking you put into their gift.
