A friend who is into music
The first thing that pops up when you think about your friend is the unusual music he or she listens to. Take advantage of that! Do some stalking. Stroll along his or her playlist and find what it is that they actually worship. But a vinyl record! The musicophile friend knows the difference in sound comparing to a digital version, trust you me. Or, you can find music magazines and get them subscribed. Or, you can find a gig of that unusual new indie band they seem to be talking all the time about and buy them a ticket. If the friend knows how to play the guitar, get them a lifetime supply of guitar picks. You will show how much you care about them by paying attention to their biggest passion – music.
Gifts for a sports fan
All the friends who are keen on sports will love a gift which has to do with their favourite hobby. Use their interest for sports to make them active and buy them equipment for staying fit. If they love watching Tour de France but complain all the time about a few extra pounds that they have gained during Christmas, now is just about the time to buy them a bike and set them out in the nature to shed off the unwanted weight. If they love a certain club, do not buy them a jersey because the odds are they might already have all of them. Buy them season tickets for their favourite club and you will see them over the moon in no time.
An arty-crafty person
All of us have those super creative friends who make cool stuff for us all the time. Now, you can give them something to support their creativity and show them how much you appreciate their work. If you have a girlfriend who is into sewing but does not have the right equipment, why not invest some money and get her a new sewing machine? Even if your friend is not into arts and crafts, but seem to be going through a bad period in their life, let them smile again by giving them something to be creative about. There are a lot of handmade goods to check out, if you want to give a unique present to your art connoisseur.
Having a friend who is an expert when it comes to cooking is always a good thing. You have somebody to prepare you the most delicious food there is, but now you can do something in return and enhance their cooking experience. Get them the much needed kitchen utensils, just check what they lack in their kitchen. A nice griddle pan should do it. What is more, if your friend is into exotic cuisine, you can hit your local bookshop and find an encyclopaedia of international cuisines. Be ready to see them amazed.
Check your friend’s interest and buy a perfect gift for them. Be sure that is something which will foster their hobby or interest and which is bound to make them smile over and over again.
