Don’t Just Give a Gift, Present It

Estheticians know their customers want change not only in an improved physical appearance but also in their confidence or self-esteem. It’s more than just a look, the feel is important. A face, hands or body become a canvas. A hydrating body cream soothes. A vegan hand cream is pure. Include touch during your gift giving moment. It may be a kiss, hug, handshake or pat on the back. Touch always adds intimacy.  

How can you bring more joy to your gift giving experience? Employ thoughtful aesthetics and authentic gestures to your gift giving moment. We may venture to multiple shops looking for the perfect gift, but how much thought do we give to the moment when a gift is given? This moment could be the beginning of a new tradition or a once only event. The idea is to surprise, engage and intrigue. In other words, don’t just give a gift, present it. Make your gift giving moment memorable. Here are some ideas from professions that rely on aesthetics and authentic gestures to create memorable moments. 

To enhance a diner’s experience chefs know they must prepare a delicious meal, but they also need to present it well. For example, they choose the right size and color of plate to serve the food. They don’t overcrowd the plate or add too many sizes, textures and shapes. These decisions add to the diner’s delight. If your gift has color in it, choose a wrapping paper with a similar or complementary color. Fit the box size to the gift size.  

Designers use their creativity to express ideas in an original way. Composition is key. They look at multiple elements and bring them together. When presenting a gift, design the moment in a way that only you can. What will you be wearing when you give the gift? What scent is in the room? Is music playing? What about the lighting – candles or twinkling tree lights?

Writers know the power of story. When giving a gift offer a short backstory – why you think they would like it, where you got it from, why you want them to have it. Offer a complement that is heart-felt and revealing. It should tell the person something you adore about them while also revealing something about you and your relationship to that person. For example: “Every time you (do whatever), it reminds me of what a special person you are.”

This season YASOU skin care added all of the elements above to create a special skin care gift package that contains a 8oz hydrating body cream aroma free with two hand crafted Lavender, Bergamot bath bombs gift wrapped that we think will be appreciated by all gift givers as well as those receiving your gift. Moments are what make our life beautiful and memorable. Enjoy yours. Happy holidays!
