Gifts to Mark a Milestone

If you’re popping champagne and gathering with close friends and family, chances are you are celebrating a major milestone. Whether it’s a new addition to the family, a big accomplishment, or even an anniversary, a gift to mark the milestone is a must. But what do you get without breaking the bank, but not look cheesy? These are a couple tips to help you find the perfect gift to mark a major occasion in someone’s life.

First, make the gift appropriate for the occasion. For instance, if the recipients are celebrating a new baby, a gift that the baby can’t use probably isn’t a great idea. Make sure your gift is appropriate for the occasion by ensuring that the recipients can use it in some form or fashion. A good gift example would be to give a nice watch to a new college graduate. The recipient can use it and the gift is out of the ordinary and special.

Second, don’t just give a gift card. This undermines the accomplishment and just shows you forgot or were too lazy. If you absolutely must give a gift card, give cash or a check instead, and have something nice to accompany it. For instance, if you are giving a gift card for a major birthday, consider giving a bottle of champagne, a piece of jewelry, or a special book along with it.

Finally, don’t be afraid to ask close friends and family for suggestions. If you are completely stumped, a close relative could shine some light on what things they like. Getting them a gift that they will actually enjoy, use, and cherish is better than giving them a gift to just give them a gift.
