That one day of the year when you want to feel special. That one day of the year when you expect from people. That one day of the year when you want to become a kid again. Yes, it’s the birthdays. The 24 hours you look forward to throughout the year. Birthdays are marked by two things- cakes and gifts. We are going to focus on the latter, here.
Gifts play a big role in all occasions. Birthdays are no exceptions. Gone are those days when any kind of gift was treated very nicely by everyone. Nowadays, people plan gifts from long before and try to make it as attractive and interesting. Competitions have also increased amongst the shops or companies to provide gifts that are unique and also cheap. Thus, originated the idea of hampers!
Gift hampers started way before with Christmas. People used to stock beer, puddings, stockings, bells and chocolates together and used to give them to their families and friends. From then on, be it Christmas or Diwali, Valentine’s Day or birthdays, hampers are the order of the day.
A birthday hamper has gained ever increasing popularity. Every one of us has that one “difficult” friend in terms of giving gifts. Whenever you think what to buy for that friend, nothing comes into our minds. These hampers come into rescue then. Hampers contain so many varieties of things that something or the other suits them. It often takes the guesswork out from the picture and there is less chance of feeling disappointed thinking whether you have given the right gift. They come in with a surprising element and are fun to receive, too.
It is also quite interesting to make these kinds of hampers. A lot of thoughts, efforts and energy go into making a hamper have its maximum pleasing look. People try to put in extra efforts and go out of the way to make their hampers different from others. There are two kinds of hampers that you can gift. First, the readymade ones those are available. Second, buying all the things and decorating your own personalized hamper. A guy’s hamper can have beer, chocolates, upcoming match tickets or favourite band performance ticket, game CD’s, photo frames, books from favourite holiday destinations and many other things, all under one hamper decorated with bright attractive colour materials. On the other hand, a hamper gifted to your lady friend on her birthday will be decorated using soft colour materials, likely pink. It may contain Barbie, teddy bears (girls are never tired of these), perfume, cosmetics, etc.
Nowadays, people prefer these hampers as presents for birthdays, more than ever. Its advantages are immense. It saves you from a situation when you are not sure what to give and you don’t want to directly ask the other person. If you do it, they’ll know what you are planning and the whole surprising element will be lost. They are always almost certain to please. Finally, more than the amount you spent on these gifts, the thought and effort count a lot. It gives a feeling to the receiver that you actually care.
