When a save-the-date invitation arrives, the first thing to do is to RSVP. Once that’s out of the way, the planning begins.
It’s not as though attending a party means just showing up and having fun. A proper gift must be given as well, especially when it’s for a special occasion.
That’s why we’ve selected five heartfelt gift ideas for loved ones celebrating distinguished moments.
1. AA Coins
For many people struggling with alcohol addiction, celebrating an anniversary of sobriety is far more important than even their own birthday. So why not help them by recognizing their hard work?
AA chips and coins are small so that no one but the recipient has to know they have the gift. Some AA members are okay with sharing their story with others, but many prefer to remain anonymous.
You can have the date of their first day of sobriety along with a message inscribed on the chips and coins. It’s a small gesture that shows a lot of support.
Jewelry is always a great gift. No matter who the recipient is, there are plenty of items that many people will enjoy, such as:
- Money clips
Often times an inscription can be placed on the jewelry. Just make sure the person actually enjoys wearing jewelry before purchasing the gift.
A fruit basket is a perfect gift idea for those struggling with addiction. Fruit actually helps stop physical cravings. It’s also really healthy for anyone trying to get and stay healthy.
Fruit does contain sugar but it’s really the sugar added to processed foods people need to worry about. Fruit also contains essential vitamins and minerals for a happy, healthy body.
Vegetables are also great. A simple basket filled with fresh fruits and vegetables is a thoughtful and tasty gift.
T-shirts are an easy and effective way of expressing a heartfelt message to a loved one.
Whether it’s used to proudly announce an achievement, one that has an uplifting message anyone can relate to, or just something that makes them smile, a custom t-shirt is always meaningful.
Cotton t-shirts look and feel the best. It’s also important to make sure the size is correct as t-shirt cuts vary depending on the manufacturer.
For those who find difficulty expressing themselves outwardly, providing a quiet and personal outlet to share their feelings may be the way to go.
Even if the host isn’t shy, stationery is always a good choice. Almost everyone will use stationery at one point or another. Having nice materials for them to come up with ways to thank their guests could be a wonderful and thoughtful idea.
