birth­day gifts

How to give a birthday present in an original way?

If you want to arrange a mem­o­rable birth­day par­ty for your loved one, then choos­ing gifts is half the bat­tle. The direct pre­sen­ta­tion of the present is also an impor­tant stage of dona­tion. How to present a gift in an orig­i­nal way so that this process becomes an equal­ly vivid mem­o­ry? We offer you to get acquaint­ed with orig­i­nal ideas that will make a mem­o­rable day tru­ly unfor­get­table.


In order for the gift to go the way you want, you need to think through every­thing in advance. To get start­ed, make a plan of action.

  • Choose an idea. This is the main point of the whole plan. Among the abun­dance of options for pre­sent­ing a gift, you need to choose one that the addressee will appre­ci­ate and that will cor­re­spond to his age and char­ac­ter. For exam­ple, a respectable man may not agree to go through a quest to receive a gift.
  • Con­nect friends, col­leagues or rel­a­tives. Any sur­prise becomes more pleas­ant if many peo­ple par­tic­i­pate in its prepa­ra­tion. Espe­cial­ly if they all sin­cere­ly want to con­grat­u­late the hero of the occa­sion. Dis­trib­ute respon­si­bil­i­ties so that every­one con­tributes to the prepa­ra­tion of the sur­prise.

  • Cre­ate a bud­get. Decide how much mon­ey you are will­ing to spend on a gift and its orig­i­nal pre­sen­ta­tion, as ll as how much oth­er par­tic­i­pants in the event can spend.

  • Buy a present. Since you have already decid­ed on the idea, the only thing left is to acquire it. And secure­ly hide from the hero of the occa­sion so that the sur­prise remains a sur­prise.

  • Find props. To imple­ment any beau­ti­ful idea, mate­ri­als are need­ed. It can be orig­i­nal wrap­ping paper, hats with pipes, cos­tumes and every­thing that your idea sug­gests.

It is very impor­tant to start prepar­ing for the “han­dover cer­e­mo­ny” in advance. If you do every­thing at the last moment, then haste is inevitable, and with it, force majeure is inevitable. Prepa­ra­tion time depends on the com­plex­i­ty of the idea and the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants.

How fun to pack?

So, if the “trick” of your gift is pack­ag­ing, explore cre­ative options for how it can be done. Every­one knows the gen­er­al prin­ci­ples of gift wrap­ping. For men, wrap­ping paper or bags are usu­al­ly used in dis­creet col­ors, for women — in pas­tel or bright col­ors., chil­dren are most often giv­en car­toon­ish gift dec­o­ra­tion. You should be care­ful with gold and sil­ver scales, as it is easy to over­do it with these col­ors.

Now let’s look at dif­fer­ent cre­ative pack­ag­ing options that will help add orig­i­nal­i­ty to your present:

  • use braid with fun­ny pom­poms or tas­sels;
  • stick themed stick­ers on the pack­ag­ing;
  • attach a design­er mini-post­card to the gift on a rope;
  • a bot­tle of wine can be wrapped in a beau­ti­ful scarf and pinned with a brooch;
  • paste over the gift box with pho­tos of your friend (girl­friend) or friends who con­grat­u­late him;
  • option for girls — pack a gift in a box with a com­bi­na­tion lock, the cipher from which the hero of the occa­sion will receive after ansring the ques­tions of the quest and the like;
  • at the inter­sec­tion of gift rib­bons, you can sew a but­ton with four holes;
  • eco-style pack­ag­ing — dec­o­rate plain wrap­ping paper and twine with a plant, for exam­ple, a juniper twig or a mod­est flor;
  • make a dress­ing tape from floss threads or yarn for knit­ting of dif­fer­ent tex­tures and thick­ness­es;
  • for a chil­dren’s gift, you can stick a small toy on dou­ble-sided tape — a car or a doll;
  • a box dec­o­rat­ed with let­ters from var­i­ous news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines will look unusu­al, from which you can make short con­grat­u­la­tions, write a name and so on;
  • make a rhine­stone pat­tern on the pack­age your­self or buy a ready-made ver­sion in a jel­ry store.

Before choos­ing the col­or of the pack­age, remem­ber the fea­tures of each of them. It will become clear whether the shade you have cho­sen will be appro­pri­ate in this par­tic­u­lar case.

  1. Green and blue. They are con­sid­ered sol­id col­ors, espe­cial­ly their dark, deep shades. Per­fect for gift wrap­ping for adults.
  2. Red. Per­fect for small box­es, but the large size scar­let pack­ag­ing looks too flashy.
  3. Yel­low. It is not rec­om­mend­ed for wrap­ping gifts for loved ones, because it is asso­ci­at­ed with sep­a­ra­tion. Oth­er­wise, this col­or is quite good for a present — it car­ries a pos­i­tive, cheer­ful­ness and sun­ny mood.
  4. Brown. Per­haps this col­or is not the best way to dec­o­rate a gift. Like black, it is com­plete­ly non-fes­tive and can only be used on spe­cial occa­sions when the con­cept of the gift sug­gests it.
  5. Vio­let. This col­or is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with intu­ition, cre­ativ­i­ty and intel­li­gence. Lovers of art and mys­ti­cism will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate a gift dec­o­rat­ed in such a range.
  6. Pink. The col­or of ten­der­ness and love is suit­able not only for gifts for lit­tle girls. All women some­times want to feel cared for and dream a lit­tle — feel free to use it to dec­o­rate gifts for the fair sex.

Gift giving methods

If you don’t intend to stop at cre­ative pack­ag­ing, but want to make a whole show out of giv­ing a gift, you will sure­ly like one of the ideas below.

Quest with a map

It’s like a kid’s trea­sure hunt game that’s fun and inter­est­ing to play. There is a map that you make your­self, and it shows the route. Hov­er, sim­ply fol­low­ing the indi­cat­ed path is not the case. Each stop should be accom­pa­nied by an inter­est­ing task that a per­son will find at a spec­i­fied point.

You can also cut the drawn map into parts, spread its frag­ments into envelopes and hide them. And it will be pos­si­ble to find each of them only by solv­ing anoth­er puz­zle from the orga­niz­er of the quest. Only by putting the card togeth­er, the hero of the occa­sion will be able to find the hid­den gift.

Box in a box

Hav­ing bought sev­er­al box­es of dif­fer­ent sizes, fold them like a nest­ing doll. To make it even more inter­est­ing, hide the gift not only in the small­est of them, but also in each one that will be opened. The main thing is that the most pleas­ant sur­prise is wait­ing in the last box.

Theatrical production

If take as a basis the plot of the favorite book of the hero of the hol­i­day and jok­ing­ly beat him, then the con­grat­u­la­tions cer­e­mo­ny will be just bril­liant. Use catch­phras­es from the book, cos­tumes, cre­ate an atmos­phere of unfold­ing events. Con­nect your imag­i­na­tion and cre­ate to your taste.

Luggage storage

Hide the gift in the lock­er, and to pre­vent your friend from find­ing it right away, take a few pic­tures on the way back. Issue pic­tures one at a time after each suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed stage of the path. At the same time, an accom­pa­ny­ing let­ter is com­piled with con­grat­u­la­tions and instruc­tions for com­plet­ing the quest.

Send words and num­bers one pair in each SMS, and when the hero of the occa­sion makes a phrase out of them, he will receive a code from the cell.

Congratulations from the star

On one of the con­grat­u­la­to­ry ser­vices, order a con­grat­u­la­tion in the voice of your friend’s or pres­i­den­t’s favorite artist. He will be very pleased that you have found such an orig­i­nal way of con­grat­u­la­tions.and the mood from a famil­iar voice on the phone will increase.

sudden courier

In a hol­i­day agency, you can order a couri­er. Depend­ing on the gen­der and age of the per­son you want to con­grat­u­late, the para­me­ters of the couri­er and his cos­tume will be select­ed. It can be a car­toon char­ac­ter, a pirate, a nurse and many oth­er char­ac­ters.

If you give a sur­prise so unex­pect­ed­ly, then even the most ordi­nary present, for exam­ple, a cer­tifi­cate for one of the stores, will become one of the bright­est gifts of the hol­i­day.

life puppet

It will be a very fun­ny and unex­pect­ed sur­prise. The hero of the occa­sion will not only be sur­prised, but will also be hap­py to cap­ture him­self as a keep­sake with a giant couri­er.

Anoth­er way to give a cool present is to put a cou­ple of trop­i­cal but­ter­flies in a sur­prise box. They will flut­ter out as soon as the box is opened and will make a huge impres­sion.

Delivery of balloons

Tie a box with a gift to heli­um bal­loons so that they fly to the hero or hero­ine of the hol­i­day.

The main thing is not to over­do it with balls, espe­cial­ly if the action takes place on the street, so that the sur­prise does not fly into the sky.


In cre­ative con­grat­u­la­tion agen­cies, there are entire sce­nar­ios dur­ing which “ran­dom” passers-by con­grat­u­late you. They can say pleas­ant words to a per­son, dance, sing. The effect of sur­prise from such a gift is guar­an­teed, and pleas­ant mem­o­ries will remain for a long time.


To sum up, here are some tips which should be con­sid­ered when choos­ing a gift and how to present it.

  1. The appear­ance of the pack­age should not over­shad­ow the con­tents. It will be a shame to open the chic pack­ag­ing and find some­thing banal there, like a razor from a super­mar­ket. Not nec­es­sar­i­ly this gift should be very expen­sive in mate­r­i­al terms. It can be a mem­o­rable thing, under­stand­able only to you and the hero of the occa­sion, which has great per­son­al val­ue for him.
  2. Don’t start talk­ing right dif­fi­cult it was for you to find this gift, arrange its deliv­ery, or how much mon­ey you laid out for it. This will cause embar­rass­ment in a per­son and spoil the whole fes­tive atmos­phere.
  3. If you go to vis­it a fam­i­ly man, then grab nice lit­tle things for his sec­ond half and chil­dren. So you show him your respect and atten­tion.
  4. Do not give sim­i­lar gifts to peo­ple you know for the New Year, Feb­ru­ary 23 and oth­er mass hol­i­days. The beau­ty of a gift lies in its indi­vid­u­al­i­ty. Every­one should see that you spent time on the idea and its imple­men­ta­tion, took into account the pecu­liar­i­ties of the char­ac­ter of this or that per­son.
  5. accord­ing to work eti­quette sub­or­di­nates should not give the boss expen­sive gifts. It is best if the mem­bers of the team fold and present him with one good gift.

Pre­sent­ing a gift can become a whole show that the hero of the occa­sion will remem­ber for a life­time. The main thing is not to be lazy and clear­ly fol­low the plan so that every­thing goes flaw­less­ly.

Do not be afraid to show imag­i­na­tion and cre­ate bright and unique events from ordi­nary hol­i­days.
