What kind of gift giver are you?
Is festive gifting on your mind all year round, or do you make a late December dash for those all important presents? Find out whether you’re a smart shopper, a practical present buyer or last-minute gifter and get some hints and tips about how to find the perfect present.
The Practical Present Buyer
You’re a generous festive shopper, but try to be efficient with your efforts. Whether it’s because shopping isn’t your scene, or you have loads of people to buy for, you don’t like to dwell on your gifting for too long. However, you care about the gifts you give, and you want to give people something they will actually use. You’ll buy anything from stationery to door stops if you think it’ll be put to practical use.
If this sounds like you, we have the perfect selection of gift boxes from HAY, suited to a range of tastes and activities. They are beautifully presented in a gift box ready to be received, so all you have to do is click and await their arrival!
On top of this, we have a great range of individual gifts made with practicality in mind. The Muuto Push Coffee Maker is perfect for coffee lovers and goes nicely with the HAY Paper Porcelain Coffee Cup.
If you’re worried your gift recipient already has it all, the iconic Vitra Toolbox will not only avoid adding to their clutter, but will help organise it! This Vitra staple is also a great little gift if you’re on a budget.
For the person that has it all – a toolbox with character.
