You know how it is, you need to buy a gift for somebody at short notice or they are the person who "has everything", you panic and buy a gift voucher from the nearest store. Not very inspiring and often left to languish in a drawer unredeemed.
I remember many years ago buying my husband a very expensive Horticultural Experience (which could only be redeemed at a certain place and had an end date) I thought it was the perfect gift for him. Sadly he didn't, it was never used and £150 went down the drain ! Shocking now !
I was really interested to take a look at http://www.giftedpeople.co.uk/ a Scottish Company that specialises in ethically produced gifts and experiences from local Scottish makers and traders. This does not mean their site is limited only to those lucky folk who live in Scotland though. There are many beautiful items available to gift to friends, family and loved ones. I must admit, it would be great if they did go nationwide I would LOVE to be gifted the Ironing experience !
With many options on the flexibility of the gift from ;
E-vouchers - Your Order - They are sent to you and copied to the gift provider. You can specify that you want the gift sent to the gift recipient and send them a copy of the e-voucher so that they can get in touch with the gift provider.
Gold Gift Vouchers are sent to your gift recipient. They then contact the gift provider.
You are sure to find something to suit the person who you are gifting and if they are not happy (we all know one of those people) then they have the flexibility to change the gift themselves.
The site is really easy to navigate and offers great treats like :
Second time Weddings - let them choose something to do together
Gifts for people by their Character
Pamper sessions - for men as well as women
Beautiful Arts and Crafts
The list is endless, a site full of different, thoughtful presents to suit all budgets.
If you are looking for something other than the usual boring bunch of flowers for your mum for Mothers Day pop over and take a look, there is sure to be something to delight her on this lovely site.
This is not a sponsored post but I was lucky enough to be offered a voucher to spend on the site and will update this post once I have decided what to buy and completed my gift experience.
