Who doesn’t want to give a classic gift? You can expect to receive one for sure. 🤗 However, if you want to skew on the traditional, creativity is the 🔑. What you’ll come up with will depend upon how much you know the person you want to give a gift to. Consider these suggestions and tweak them accordingly:

Yes, you don’t need to wait for February to express your love for your special someone. You can do that during the Holiday season too. This is the perfect present for that person you are really close with. Start gathering the photos you’ve collected over the year and make them into a unique collage that would make your friends or family smile. 💕

All-In Power Bank

Who doesn’t bring their phone with them anywhere? 🤙🏻 The possibility of meeting one is small these days, thus, an all-in power bank should be the most appropriate gift. 🎁 It’s convenient to grab a device like this in the market that is compatible for all kinds of phones because of its different plugs. 

Customized Leather Journal

A custom notebook ✍🏻 may seem too simple but in Smiling Socks, we believe that happiness is in the little things. This is the best gift for a person you know that loves to write. It’s also an opportunity to encourage your loved ones to be introspective and maintain a journal!

Handwritten Bracelet

If you have more time to prepare, a handwritten bracelet 💎 should be a unique gift idea too! You can scribble a message and transform your handwriting into a silver, rose, or gold bracelet. A personalized note will be heartwarming for sure!
