You might have heard this saying a lot while growing up (I sure as hell did). For those who don’t know what it means, let me try to explain my perspective. For me this means, a gesture or a gift will do better compared to the common phrases used in happy or sad situations which are: ‘Sorry’, ‘Thank you’, ‘Happy Birthday’ etc. It may sound a bit shallow but trust me, if it’s your family, friend or your partner, a gift will bring a smile to their face, regardless of the situation (well, in most situations).
If you’re looking for gifts to make up for something you did or said or it’s someone’s birthday or you’re generally a caring person and like giving gifts, this article will help you come up with ideas for a creative gift.
DISCLAIMER: Make sure you select a gift idea which is appropriate for the situation and person. Don’t want more problems now, do you?
As the name suggests, it’s just like any other journal but instead of a paper cover, the cover is made out of wood. It’s very aesthetic. You can even draw or paint on the wood cover and customize it the way you want it for the person you’re getting it for. Why this serves as a good gift is because they can write about their daily routine or doodle and every time, they take it out, they’ll be reminded of how awesome you are.
