Well, who can't make you happy with food and drink There are very few of them and the reason why is often because it also makes them secretly very happy. You can shove food in and you can indulge your senses in such a culinary way that you spontaneously feel like watching the Hollywood classic. ‘When Harry with Sally’ to put into practice. Giving anight out for dinner going to a top restaurant is a gift that the lucky ones will remember for a long time to come. Make sure you book a little far in advance, because getting a seat in the best restaurants in the Netherlands is top sport these days.

“Art is love in every act.” source: Paul van Ostaijen
If you really want to touch someone's heart with a gift, feel deep into someone's life and filter that which enraptures that person and experiences genuine happiness. In most cases these are not physical things, but inner feelings such as sentiments from the past. Loved ones themselves naturally also bring a lot of emotions and shared history with them. Well now, unite all this in art as in an object touching someone inside. Someone reaches a respectable age Someone has achieved or conquered something On the other hand an anniversary or a festive commemoration Create art like;als;
- apainting with someone's children on it
- asculpture of a loved one or something
- a wood-carved work, such as a beautiful oneskyline on the wall of someone's hometown
- Something from the pen, such as a beautiful poem or another variation of word art
It springs from the heart and appeals to the imagination. Loving ones such as family members, or immortalizing nostalgic things and / or objects is art that evokes warm feelings forever. You only give that to someone once. So when you do it, do it from the heart.

Let's conclude the top 5 special gifts with a type of gift that fully meets the current zeitgeist. If you go for this variant, you go for hip and ultra urgent. Quite a fun pastime all those awesome gifts, but most of them are obviously very bad for our global environment. Let us quote some figures from the Central Bureau of Statistics; The amount of household waste per inhabitant has been around or above 550 kilos per year for over ten years. The quantity has decreased slightly in the last few years..”
In any case, there is more awareness going on in our little country, but we are only just on the move, as this quote shows. And we are only talking about the Netherlands. So, work on the shop ..; let's say. Otherwise we can start building an ark instead of passing presents to each other. Okay, this point has been made. But how and what when it comes tom special and durable gifts? Well very simple actually.
- Give a gift of which all proceeds will go to charity. You can give a piece of rainforest as a gift, for example. How cool is that to getn?
- If you give a physical gift, make sure that it is wrapped with recycled paper. Old newspapers or something. Are these still useful in digital times?
- If we are already on the already used tour, give someone a super cool second-hand gift. A little searching every now and then yields very interesting finds and are ideal as a special gift.
- Nowadays waste is also reused for art, for example. And we have already talked about art. The ultimate combination. A sustainable art object as a special gift.
Finally, in drawing up the balance of the special gifts, we can unanimously state that the first 4 points in this blog are all equally suitable to continue under the heading;sustainable gifts. Well ... except for all those much too fun sports activities that involve a lot of motor violence and fossil fuels. With an electric sports car on the racetrack anyway, all the best to everyone in choosing your unique, special gift for a loved one..
