Buying a birthday gift for anyone can be a challenging prospect, mostly because you really want to get it right! This is why buying a birthday gift set, such as a fragrance gift set, can be the perfect solution whether you’re struggling for ideas or not. A gift set gives you the chance to buy a curated collection of little gifts that the recipient will love, and takes some of the hard work and head scratching out of the equation.

So, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect birthday gift set, here are some top tips to help you narrow down your choices.

Consider their interests and hobbies

The first thing you should think about is what is the recipient interested in? This can create the theme of your gift set and help to make sure you’re looking in the right direction! Are they into beauty products and perfume? Or are they into DIY or gardening?

It pays to get a gift set that helps them enjoy their hobby a little bit more, so if you don’t already know what they enjoy doing in their spare time, take some time to subtly ask and find out!

This is half the battle when trying to buy the perfect birthday gift set. With so much choice, it’s important to narrow down your search before you end up with 5 different ideas sat in your shopping basket!

Is it something they will definitely use?

How many times have you received a gift that was lovely, but you didn’t really have a use for? There is nothing worse than a thoughtful present ending up in a drawer collecting dust, so when it comes to buying your gift set, make sure it is something that will get used.

If you want to buy a bath pamper kit, first make sure they prefer baths to showers. It’s also key to try and make sure they don’t already own whatever you are thinking of buying.

Listen carefully for hints

If you’re buying for someone who you often spend time with, they will likely drop hints about things they need or want, without even realising. For instance, if their perfume or aftershave is running out, or they spotted something in a shop window that they like. This can prove vital if you’re on the hunt for the perfect present!

Listening for hints can sometimes take the hours of searching off your hands, so if you’re not confident in choosing the right type of birthday gift set, this is the perfect way forward.

What’s their style?

Depending on the type of gift set you’re looking for, knowing their style could come in very handy. If you’re buying for a girl, is she more feminine or more of a tomboy? Does the recipient love vintage-inspired gifts or something more modern?

This can help to make your final decision on whether you have chosen the perfect gift set for them.
