Introduction:Many times in our busy lives we find ourselves suddenly realizing that it is someone's birthday, anniversary, or we find another celebration that requires giving a last minute gift to an out of town friend or relative. Here are the top five thoughtful last minute gift giving suggestions, ideas and tips for giving a quick gift.
Many people who find themselves in the predicament of suddenly needing to send a last minute gift to someone who lives out of town have no idea what to send that would be a quick and thoughtful gift.
If you need to be sending a quick, thoughtful gift to someone who lives out of town, this may very well be completely out of the question. It may be too late unless you do not mind if your gift is received after the celebration.
One suggestion and a really great idea for this circumstance would be to send a gift certificate. This can easily be sent right online. Many websites offer this free service including giftcertificates.com. You can also go to more direct websites to choose the perfect gift certificate for a friend or family member who lives out of town. They will receive their gift certificate immediately right in their email.
Another thoughtful suggestion, idea, or tip for last minute gift giving for someone who lives out of town would be to get in touch with another family member or friend. They will surely be glad to help you out.
You can simply ask one of your family members or friends to purchase a thoughtful last minute gift for you and give it to that special someone who is having that special birthday, anniversary, or celebration.
It is always great to have the privilege of relying on others when it is impossible to do something on your own. Be sure to at least tell your family member or friend what last minute gift you would like them to buy for this special occasion.
Many people also have special ways to get a hold of their friends and other family member's utility bills, cellphone bills, and things along this line. It really is not that hard to find them out if you do not know them.
A great tip for giving a thoughtful, last minute gift to someone special in your life who lives far away would be to pay some money on one of their bills for them. You can easily do this just by making a simple phone call. Most of the time, all you will need is their name, address and phone number.
Be sure to let them know that you have done this. Otherwise, they will not even know that you have given them this wonderful gift for their birthday, anniversary, or one of many other special occasions.
This clever, thoughtful suggestion for gift giving to someone who lives out of town at the last minute also works fine for bank accounts.
People can quickly and easily deposit money right into their friend's checking account as a last minute gift for any occasion. That is, if you happen to have their bank information handy for some reason. Banks allow anyone to deposit money into an account. You just cannot withdraw money from other bank accounts that you do not own.
This would be a nice surprise for anyone to receive as a last minute gift for any special occasion and quite cleverly thoughtful. You may not want to consider this idea if you should not have their bank information for some reason.
Many parents keep this information handy, because they need to deposit money for their children on occasion to help them pay their bills.
Money is always a well appreciated gift whether it be last minute to someone living out of town or not. Most people have PayPal accounts these days. You can choose to quickly and easily give your friend the thoughtful gift of money via PayPal, even at the last second.
Also, many websites offer free online greeting cards for all special occasions that you can send to your family member or friend's email account.
Feel free to be creative with gift giving, and use your imagination. You could always order flowers online which will be delivered the same day, or even order a pizza from their favorite pizza shop, pay for it with your credit card, and have it delivered to your friend or other family member's house.
Most people even enjoy just getting a simple congratulating phone call.
