The ultimate gift is comprised of 3 pillars;
1. Your Gift - The physical item you are gifting.
2. Your Purpose - This is your reasoning behind the gift. It can be many things, eg. to show love, support or to excite. Either way, this will guide you to the next pillar.
3. Gifting Experience - A way that you can give the gift that creates an exciting experience for your giftee.
For example; if you're giving your love a bike (REI) - instead of just handing over the bike, park it out of sight and instead gift them a water bottle (Target), then some cycling route maps (REI) and perhaps then a bell (Target) or cycling gloves (Target). These added gifts can add up to around $15 depending on how fancy you want to go and will most likely be things they'll need. But they will make all the difference to build up suspense and confusion before wheeling out the main affair (the Bike) and surprising them.
Another experience example I love is for Travel. ✈️💕 Make a fake ticket or boarding pass (you can find free templates online), gift them a passport holder (Horchow) - pretend that's their main gift and slip the actual gift (the airline ticket/ hotel confirmation print out/trip itinerary) into the passport holder. They won't even notice your real gift until you tell them to check inside. Believe me, this one always thrills!
