6 Creative Gift Ideas for People You Don’t Know Well

gift ideas for people you don't know

How often does it happen that you come across situations where you need to ring up your brain for a good gift idea? But, what if it is for someone you just met or you aren’t very close to? Secret Santa situations in an office Christmas party are among the biggest examples of such situations.

We understand how difficult it becomes to choose a gift for someone you possibly interacted with once or twice. Don’t worry, though, because we have sorted out a list of the best gifting ideas for you.

A Grooming Set

It doesn’t matter if it is a man or a woman; personal hygiene is ubiquitous. Everyone does it, and everyone needs good-quality products for it. So, while you are on a mission to gift someone meaningful and useful, a grooming kit with all the essentials is always a good way to go.

A Starbucks Gift Card

Unless they do hate coffee, you should be good. A gift card is hands down one of the easiest and most effective gifting options. It is easily manageable; you can get it last minute, and you don’t have to worry about wrapping things up. And, when you get a good gift card like that of Starbucks, you know the person on the other side will most likely appreciate the gesture.

A Spa-Day

Another vague yet meaningful gift option is getting an all-paid spa session at a good resort or centre around town. This is a thoughtful gift and gives the person receiving it a good way to prioritize themselves for a day and get the pampering they deserve for the day. Again, this is a gifting option that you can get for a man or a woman. It doesn’t matter.

A Massager

If you are hunting down a gift for a hardworking colleague that you see complaining about backache and stiffness in the muscles, surprise them with neck and back massagers. There are several amazing models and designs available online that you can look through and pick the one that has good reviews.

A Personalized Notebook

When you are gifting someone you don’t know much about, the last thing you want to do is give off an awkward vibe. You don’t want the gift to symbolize “being given for the sake of it.” Even though you don’t know much about this person, there’s nothing that beats a good personalized gift. And, what better than to give them an engraved notebook with their name?

A Set of Candles or Bath bombs (or both)

Last on the list is another self-care and thoughtful gifting idea. Scented soy wax candles or bath bombs make amazing personalized and useful gift items. They are easy on the pocket, very readily accessible, unisex, thoughtful, and will come in handy for the person you are getting them for. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t consider it.


If you have reached the end here, we hope that you have at least one (or multiple) gift ideas for the next party you get invited to. Sometimes, all you need to do is focus on the little things you know about the person, and in case you don’t, play it vague and safe.
