Give something small „Just like that“:
Often you need a small gift as a small present - just like that - to make friends happy, or as a surprise. So if you know the recipient well, you can orientate yourself to his or her preferences: for a wine drinker, for example, our drip stop is a good choice, for people who like to write a notebook or a pencil case is certainly a good choice, and for people who are already looking forward to Christmas in summer, the coaster in the shape of a star might be a good choice. It gets more difficult when you have to organize a souvenir for someone you don't know that well: maybe a basket be a good idea – filled with a few sweets quickly becomes a small gift basket.
Say „thank you“ with a little gift…
Simply say "thank you" with a small gift when someone is there for you when you are not feeling well, whether by listening to you, giving you good advice or simply by being there for you. A small "thank you" is also appropriate after successfully completing joint projects at work or when someone has helped you at work.
There are even more opportunities: For example, why not give your neighbor a key ring heartfor watering flowers during the vacations? Or give the cook a little elephantfor a tasty lunch, the colleague for taking you to work a key chain car or the friends for helping with the move the pendant house made of felt. There are so many occasions when you can express your closeness with a small gift.
Make sure you have a small supply of souvenirs!
Things always seem to happen when you least expect them. Why not stock up on souvenirs? This will save you time and nerves, because the spontaneous invitation won't catch you unprepared. In case of emergency, you don't need to wander through stores and conjure up a meaningless souvenir on the last groove. Moreover, your little present comes completely unexpected, because the hostess or host would have expected a bottle of Chianti Classico from your cellar or a small bouquet of flowers from the garden, but never a nice present like a business card case leather or a nice glasses case. This allows you to keep small gifts for different people and occasions to better cater to individual preferences.
And what if you forget a birthday or special event? A small stock of gifts can help you to be prepared for such occasions and avoid embarrassing situations.
Little things for the Advent calendar ...
The pre-Christmas period will be even more beautiful with a self-made and self-filled Advent calendar! First, think about who the calendar is for and incorporate the person's preferences and interests. The materials for the packaging can be varied, from paper bags and homemade boxes to empty toilet paper rolls. Fill the little surprises not only with sweets, but also with personal notes, poems or quotes. Perhaps even with small vouchers for joint activities. Decorate the packages with Christmas stickers, ribbons or paint them festively to create a special atmosphere.
As difficult as it is to have all 24 little niceties for the Advent calendar together in time every year - you might find some of them with us this year: take a look at the great key rings or our hexagonal coasters for the favorite mug. Be creative when filling them and think about the person's interests. Small pieces of jewelry, handmade soaps, tea bags or homemade cookies are perfect. Don't forget to number the parcels so that the right door is opened every day. This will make the Advent season a special time full of surprises and personal gestures!
As a small class gift for students to say goodbye at the end of school, our nice green key ring lucky clover is always well received.
