Turning Gifts Into An Event

When you've chosen the absolutely perfect gift, just giving it isn't enough.

You purchased a stunning piece of jewelry for someone special and can't wait to see his or her face when they open the gift. Until the gifted person notices, your expectation develops into a moment of surprise and delight.

Turning Gifts Into An Event

Here are some tips to get you started:

➤ Incredible Delivery Face. Perhaps the partner is already expecting a gift from you where you can be misled them that ultimately leads to a happy surprise. Find someone to whom your partner would never have thought that they would give a present or any other gift.

➤ Counterfeit Packaging. The trick is to sow the seeds of disappointment that quickly turns into joy. Start with an partially filled drawer with some household items. Of course, deep in this drawer there will be a real gift - jewelry from you. You may have to gently invite the person to keep digging to find them, but that won't ruin the surprise.

➤ A Tricky One. This scheme takes a little more work, but can do as a group activity during a party. Instead of handing over a wrapped gift, you present the winner with an envelope with the first clue. You may have just a few clues or go crazy with a long adventure all over the house. You can associate each clue with something about the person and your relationship, or just make it interesting and challenging. The final clue will, of course, show the location of your real gift for them.

➤ An Unexpected Discovery. Instead of giving a gift, you can let the partner stumble upon it by accident. Whether wrapped or not, place the gift somewhere inappropriate where you know it goes every day. It works best when an unexpected place fits into their daily routine. Your partner is completely overwhelmed when an unusual object appears.

➤ Your Special Place. Think about places that are special to you and your relationship. These places filled with memories can truly set the mood when you give present to your loved one. This place doesn't have to be too hard - the retro where you proposed. Wherever you go, you need to make sure you receive your gift in a safe and secure place before the right time.

With a little creativity, you can make a gift almost as useful as the gift itself. Jewelry is such a valuable personal gift and it is worth taking a step further to create an experience that matches it. Use just one or a combination of them to make a gift that comes from your heart - a gift that will be remembered and cherished for a long time.
