Gift Boxes - The Gift That Packs All The Goodies

When faced with the prospect of picking out a gift for someone important to you, it is pretty normal to find yourself at a loss.

Everything you consider seems to be boring or not special enough. This dilemma becomes worse when you’re buying a gift for a man. Whether it’s your brother, your friend or your husband/boyfriend, gifts such as shirts, wallets or perfumes can sometimes feel like really ordinary choices.

If you’re stumped for ideas, then gift boxes are definitely a convenient solution especially for guys who are choosy or hard to buy gifts for. Great gift boxes can be made up of edible treats, or items selected around a theme or even just a bunch of his favourite things – it’s a gift that charms by being a bundle of surprise!

New Trend You Much Check Out - Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes are an innovative concept introduced recently in India though they've been popular abroad for some time now. If you are wondering what these are, then let us explain. This involves signing up for a plan wherein a box of curated items connected to a theme, is sent at regular intervals. The boxes contain a fresh collection of items every time, making them a fun gifting idea as they offer a whole lot of joy to the receiver, not once but repeatedly!

The choice in subscription boxes is pretty wide – there are food/beverage boxes, books and even grooming and clothing boxes. In India, there are a few websites such as mygiftbox that currently offer such services. Plans are typically available for certain time periods – quarterly/half yearly/yearly- so you can pick as convenient.

Picking Out The Right Gift Boxes For Men

Something Related To His Interests

Opting for a gift box as your gift doesn’t mean you don’t take the effort to make it personalised. In picking out the gift box, get inspired by who he is - his likes, his personality, his tastes, favourite leisure activities etc.

Since, companies mostly have pre-packed boxes you can easily scan through them to see what would be the right fit. Start by thinking of what he’d appreciate the most - a box of snacks, a box of grooming essentials or a set of books – or a mix of these? Or would he like something quirky or sentimental? Keeping these aspects in mind will help you narrow down the available choices and pick the right one.

Appropriate To The Relationship And Occasion

Obviously the gift box you choose must take into account the nature of relationship you share with him. Is he a friend, a relative, your partner, your boss or perhaps your colleague? For close relationships you can pick out boxes that contain items that are more intimate in nature such as grooming products or perfumes. But in other cases, make sure your gift boxes don’t contain stuff that’s too personal. In these cases, go for boxes that have neutral items like leather goods, gourmet snacks etc. The other factor you must keep in mind is the occasion. A gift box that you consider for your partner for his birthday may be much different than what you may like to give to celebrate a promotion. So make sure to consider the suitability of the gift to the occasion.

Choose A Subscription Box Only If You're Sure

Subscription boxes, as we've said before, are the new in thing. However think carefully before going for this option. Such gifts are suitable only for near relationships like your brother or partner. Given the immense choice in such boxes and the fact that such services offer the best value when taking for longer periods, you need to be pretty confident that the person you are gifting will appreciate the idea.
