The Ultimate Gift Inspiration Guide from Neonimo


It shouldn’t be something that gives us mild heart palpitations. It should be fun and exciting. And yet, gift buying for loved ones can be such a difficult thing to do. So many questions are running through our heads:

  • Do they already have everything?
  • Will they think my gift is thoughtful?
  • Will they like it or secretly hate it and be too afraid to say so?
  • I get them the same thing every year – do they think I'm boring?

And on and on the questions riddle us...aaargh. SO. STRESSFUL.

That’s why we’ve put together some curated lists for gift buying inspiration to help you find the perfect present for all your fave people, that are special enough to get an actual present from you – not just a card (or DM)!

Here you'll find an easy gift inspiration guide that works on a Q&A basis – read on to find out a simple way to decide what present to buy the next time you're struggling for gift inspiration for the special people in your life...
