On some occasions it just won’t do to look out for the best deals and offers when buying gifts for a friend or family member. Sometimes that special somebody is worth you pushing the boat out for a change. Here are a few suggestions to help you on your way.

How much do you care?

Money might be tight these days but cutting corners when it comes to gifts for our friends and family members should not be the thought that crosses our mind when we are thinking about what to buy.

If you are going to the trouble of buying a gift in the first place, then why spoil it by being cheap? Of course, it is always the thought that counts rather than price, but the thoughts are hardly the right ones if you are worrying about how much you have to spend rather than whether the gift will be truly liked and appreciated. Show somebody you really care for a change and make that present posh and classy.



This is a choice that you just cannot go wrong with if you want to give something really classy and posh. This simple elegance is a timeless present that really boosts the interior of any home. It’s understated but at the same time it lets the receiver clearly know just how much you think of them. And for those who are still worried about the price tag, it doesn’t always have to be as expensive as you might think!

Crested Cufflinks

This is the perfect gift for that very special man in your life. Whether it be your father, brother, husband, or boyfriend, a set of crested cufflinks guarantee respect and appreciation. This is not the kind of gift that is simply casually worn on any old occasion. Silver crested cufflinks are instead a special present that will only later come out when the event is truly deserving of them. The inclusion of a specially chosen crest, such as a family’s coat of arms, adds further prestige to this idea and makes this gift one that will hopefully end up being passed down from generation to generation.

Designer Handbag

Designer Handbag

This gift is a real treat for all of those very deserving ladies out there. The first thing to accept with this gift is that the price is not going to be a low one. You may, in fact, feel offended by exactly how much the company are trying to charge you for the privilege of taking away such an object, but you need to change your thinking on this. A really top-class handbag is something that a lady can use for years and years. It imbues the wearer with elegance automatically and really shows the lucky receiver just how highly you think of them. The price tag probably will bother you, but it will be worth for the look on her face when you hand it over.

Sterling Silver Tea Set

This is the kind of gift that just screams posh and classy, except that it doesn’t as it is way to classy to ever scream anything! Obviously this is the kind of gift that may better suit an elderly couple, or an avid entertainer that simply loves tea, but this truly is a special type of present. A gift like this is almost more like a lifestyle choice than simply an expensive object. Something of this undoubted quality is all about enjoying the finer things of life, and taking your time and looking very good while you do that.

Fine Dining

Most modern professionals can rarely find the time to just switch off and unwind for a little while these days, and it is even more difficult for them to do this in a classy environment. A great gift for a younger professional couple then is a reservation at a really high quality restaurant, Michelin starred if possible. It may seem like a bit of an indulgence, but we all need them sometimes, and your recipients will be eternally grateful to you.
