My Top Gift Tips: Elle-May Michael, in.cube8r gallery

Everyone has a story to tell when it comes to giving and receiving gifts, so we'd thought we'd share some of these stories as 'mini interviews' to hopefully give you a bit of inspiration the next time you need to buy a gift. In this post, Elle-May Michael from in.cube8r gallery shares her gift stories...

1. The best gift I ever received was… 
"A painting of me and my best friend which the artist pinched from my Facebook and created without me expecting anything! It is still on my wall years later!"

2. The top gift on my wish list is… 
"Ooh gosh... I would LOVE a custom perfume by The Perfume Lab. He sits down and goes through all your favourite scents with you and creates a scent just for you! My mum got one and I am forever wanting my own!"

3. The best gift I have ever given was… 
"When we were teenagers I bought my bestie who loved Dance Dance Revolution a professional mat to play on, it was MASSIVE and expensive but totally worth it!"

4. The hardest person I have ever had to buy a gift for was/is… 
"Colleagues who you don't know very well are always hard to buy for! I like my gifts to be super personal so choosing for people I don't know is hard!"

5. The best last-minute gift is… 
"Gift Vouchers for boutique stores (not major chains but bespoke small businesses which will make using the voucher an experience and not a chore)."

6. My hot gift buying tip is… 
"Go in with friends! We would all rather get one really nice thing which we love dearly rather than lots of little cheap things which you feel like you need to hold on to for a period of time until it is acceptable to get rid of it... Plus, getting a group gift is fun!"
