We love gifting to celebrate life’s little wins. Whether it’s learning a new skill, running a 5K, or finally finishing a home improvement project, there are so many reasons to gift unexpectedly. That’s why we’re sharing some of our favorite gifts and unexpected occasions to spread a little joy and help celebrate life’s little victories. Check out our top picks for unique gift ideas and surprise them with a gift they never saw coming.
Reason #1: They Learned a New Thing
Learning a new skill is no easy task. Whether they became a baker, skater, painter, or music player, send them some “Way to Go!” gift boxes to show how proud you are. Make it personal by adding goodies that go with their new skill.
Reason #2: They Tackled a Home Improvement Project
So, they turned quarantine into an HGTV show — kudos to them! Encourage their handy wins with some more DIY-inspired goods and home accents like candles. For a unique gift idea, we recommend including some treats to sweeten the sentiment.
Reason #3: They Showed Up for Friends and Family
They are the glue that keeps everyone together (and this was no small feat in 2020/2021!). From initiating those weekly zoom happy hours to organizing the family photos, they deserve a show of gratitude for making life a little more meaningful for their friends and family. Send a “Thank You!” gift box or make it a fun and unique gift with something based on their interests, like a game night set or cheese board starter pack.
Reason #4: They Focused On Their Health & Wellness
From running a 5K to getting those steps in every day, or even just learning to like salad, no fitness win is too small for a thoughtful gift box. We recommend outdoors-themed gifts, or you can go all out with a spa set to help their body recoup from all that exercise.
Reason #5: They Kicked A** at Work
They did it! Celebrate the #boss they are by congratulating them on that well-deserved promotion, new business venture, or new coding skill. A simple “Congrats!” gift will do, or add some personality with a special office-themed gift box you know they’ll love.
