Reflect on memories you’ve had with them (3/5)

List item

If you’re truly stuck and don’t have any idea what to get your loved one, try to remember good moments you’ve spent with them. Did you take a trip with them that they really enjoyed? Get them something from that place or a framed photo from that time. Do you two enjoy the same books/movies/tv shows/music? Get them a special edition of the book, a book of the month subscription, merch related to the show, a projector so they can enjoy movies from home while theaters are closed, a silicone case for their airpods — the possibilities are endless. 

And if they have a special interest or specific quirk you can play into that by giving them a gift related to whatever they’re into. For example, my friend (who’s an adult college student) thinks Peppa Pig is really funny for some reason, so last year I got her a Peppa Pig shirt that she now wears all the time.
