4 Suggestions For Giving Great Gifts by Heidi Carey

Good gift giving is simple, but what makes a really great gift? I had a wise friend give me some simple tips on how to turn a good gift into a great one every time. Here they are… 

  • A BEAUTIFUL BOX (OR WRAPPING PAPER) RIBBON AND A NOTE ARE A MUST When you have a gift in a beautiful box with bows and tissue paper inside, opening it becomes a memorable experience. The joy begins as soon as she sees the beautiful box!
  • GIVE SOMETHING SHE´S NOT EXPECTING. A surprise makes a gift great no matter what you’re giving. Experiencing the surprise is a wonderful gift in itself, heightening the joy.
  • INCLUDE THE RECEIPT Just in case the gift is not exactly right and needs to be exchanged. The ultimate goal is to give a gift that will be loved and used often reminding her always of you.
  • IF SHE TELLS YOU WHAT SHE WANTS, GET HER THAT!, (THIS ONE IS FOR OUR HUSBANDS) This tip requires you to pay attention and listen! My husbands does not have mastery of these two skills, so I make a list for him…with web links! I’m serious! All my things arrive in a gorgeous grey box wrapped in beautiful holiday ribbon. Most people don’t know my brand yet, so it’s sure to be a wonderful surprise!. A receipt is always included and everything is exchangeable. You’re guaranteed to be a gift giving star!

I founded Heidi Carey in 2016 with a simple goal: To create beautiful, timeless accessories for my friends and their friends. I understood who they were at their core, and what types of things we all were looking for as we all moved along in our lives. It’s why my pieces are conceived for the woman who values both elegance and understatement; versatility and superb value.
