Did you just realise your mum’s birthday is much sooner than you thought? Or perhaps it’s about time you treated your other half to a surprise trip away? Or do you just think your wife, sister, mother or best friend deserves a treat for being simply amazing every day?
There are a few things to consider when buying a gift for someone that can help make choosing easier:
You don’t always have to spend a lot to get a great gift, and here at Groupon you can get cracking deals from a range of brands. Try to imagine what your ideal price for a gift will be and see what discounts you can get from top brands.
You can search on Groupon for local deals across New Zealand, so it might be worthwhile to search for exciting things to do in cities when you’re planning a short break away. Sometimes it’s the simple gifts that can have the best impact so something as relaxed and quaint as a weekend away is a great gift idea.
Try to think about what the recipient would love to get and have a look at some of the fashion gift ideas we have here.
How to get a good gift for your girlfriend
“Collect moments, not things,” is a famous saying, and at Groupon, we can help you create the perfect experiences to cherish forever. So why not think about getting a little romantic with your gifting and bag a bargain on a weekend away? Head to Rotorua or Bay of Islands, explore Wellington, Auckland and more. With breakfast and bottles of wine often included, a Groupon Getaway is a fantastic way to escape the everyday!
How to get a great gift for your wife
Do you find yourself buying the same bunch of flowers and gift cards for your wife every year? Forget that idea and get a voucher for a fancy dinner for two instead, so you can wine and dine in style. We work with local restaurants to serve up 2 and 3 course meals with great discounts of up to 60% off. No matter what city you’re in, you’ll have a smorgasbord or restaurants to choose from, feasting on an array of culinary delights for every taste and budget. Check out our Food & Drink deals now!
How to get the perfect gift for your mum
Giving mum a much-needed day off is a must, and Groupon users love to treat their mums to a fancy brunch or dinner (especially when there’s bubbly involved). We’ve got Food & Drink deals from as little as $25 for two, so you should be able to find a meal close to home and treat your mum, because she deserves it.
What are some of the most popular gifts for her on Groupon?
Depending on the time of year, the popularity we see in gifts for women differs. Around Valentine’s Day, flowers, massages and chocolate deals sell out quite quickly, while around any long weekends, we see a lot of short breaks being snapped up as people make the most of the extended break.
For anyone looking to really go all out on their gift, take a look at our Jewellery & Watches page where we have deals on beautiful rings, necklaces, earrings, watches and bracelets.
I’m looking for something a little closer to home. Do you have any local gifts for her?
We make it easy for you to find great gifts close to your home. Our Local section will help you find gift inspiration for things to do nearby. There are always great pampering packages available from local day spas and beauty clinics, as well as activities like a cooking classes, wine tours or day trips.
Do you have any ‘out of the box’ or functional gift ideas?
A gift doesn’t always need to be something super special, it can often be something functional, especially if you look at some of our Personal Services gifts. Here you’ll find deals on things like iPhone screen repair (great if you girlfriend dropped her phone and hasn’t gotten round to replacing that cracked screen) or language courses, workshops, astrology readings and more.
It’s a great place to start if you’re on the hunt for something that would be extremely useful or a little ‘out of the ordinary.’
I’m looking for more of a traditional gift for her. Any suggestions for where to look?
Keep an eye on the latest fashion gift ideas that pop up on this page. It’s where you’ll see big savings on the hottest new styles. Designer styles without the designer price tag! Our Beauty & Spas deals are always on the top of the list for traditional gifts as well.
What if I have a price point in mind? Can I still find gifts for her?
Helping get the best price possible on a deal is what we’re all about here at Groupon. Our aim is to help you ‘save up to 70% on the things you do every day!’ and we live by it. Groupon is here purely so you can find that perfect item or experience, no matter what budget you’re on.
