Tips for shopping for gifts online

You've finally found a fantastic online store with items you'd gladly gift to someone (or yourself). Before you start filling your online cart, ensure the store is legit:

  • Look for the company’s contact information.
  • Check their online presence and followings.
  • Read product reviews and customer feedback.
  • Check if the store’s website begins with “HTTPS://” and the lock symbol on the address bar.
  • Turn on your antivirus and do a quick scan.

Think twice before you buy from any random website or social media page. It's essential to confirm that the store has a clean track record and many satisfied customers. Ask for recommendations, read reviews, and contact the store owners. Don't hesitate to ask about the shipment method and confirm the fees. However, if it seems that store owners beat around the bush, take it as a red flag.  Fortunately, many legit and top-rated online stores have the gifts you seek. Browse multiple stores, and compare the gifts, price points, and shipping rates. That way, you'll make the most convenient decision.

Make sure the store you’re ordering from is legit.

A personalized gift is how you stay connected with your special person even if they move long-distance.

People who like to travel and explore tend to change their addresses more frequently. Digital nomads want to take their journey to the next level. They enjoy remote work that allows them to choose whatever place on Earth as their temporary home. However, they sometimes feel nostalgic about their home, friends, neighborhood, etc. So, before your friend hits the road or changes the country, get them a nice, personalized gift! Think of what they would like the most - a practical gift, a piece of their hometown, scented gifts, and so on.

Gifts are one of the many ways to maintain a connection after long-distance relocation. Here are some ideas:

  • Online games - If both of you are passionate gamers, get your characters together and do quests, fight other players, etc.
  • Online chess - Another great way to have fun with a friend while practicing your focus and cognition
  • Remote movie nights - You and your close person can watch movies no matter where you are. Pick a movie, press play, then share your impressions afterward

Bulky gifts may not be a great idea.

Avoid buying anything large or heavy as a gift unless it's a tent or a quality sleeping bag. The best gift ideas for travel enthusiasts are the ones that fit in their travel bag or backpack. So, aim for simple yet practical gifts, like those mentioned in this article. Wrap the place in a gift bag and put a smile on your friend or family member’s face!
