Assorted Belgian Chocolates with Gift Wrap

Are you...

Read on! At the Big Fat Balloons Online School of Gift Buying we've compiled a list of classic gifts for you - with something for all budgets. We hope that some of them will provide you with the inspiration you need to delight your friends and family.

What's more, we've also been asking people about the best gifts ideas they found - so take a peek if you need any extra inspiration!

Gift experiences/ holidays

Not cheap, but hugely popular - especially for landmark birthdays or anniversaries. The experience is the gift to by for those who have everything - and memories will be cherished for years to come. Try to choose an experience or holiday that suits their character and taste. From helicopter flying lessons or parachute jumps to the ultimate spa experience - you will find something for everybody's taste.

Lessons to learn something new

Golf, drums, dancing, glass blowing, life drawing, the list is endless. Just be certain that the recipient has expressed an interest in the subject and can fit it into their schedule. Will be popular with both adults and children. Search for ideas online, in your local phone book or newspaper.

Day out

Are you buying a gift for a football or Robbie Williams fan? Check out what's going on in town and get tickets . You can either give them a pair of tickets or keep one of the tickets for yourself and insist on accompanying the recipient (whether he/she wants you to or not).

Taking someone out shopping, for a special meal or to see a show or film can make a great present too.

Traditional generic gifts

The following presents are not highly original - but are favourite classic gifts for a reason. They are generic enough to apply to a lot of people - yet can be personalised if picked with thought.

Novelty gifts

Anything from a novelty shop. From naughty card games to fart machines, there are fun novelty gifts for everyone. Just make sure you don't go overboard!

Classic gifts on a shoestring

Something you've slaved over will make an extra special gift - without breaking the bank! Here are a few ideas to inspire you:
