Which gift for nieces from aunts is best? 

The bond between an aunt and a niece is special and tends to blossom over time. Consider a way to convey that relationship through a thoughtful, useful gift. Keep in mind that the range of gifts is as wide and varied as each niece, so consider her talents and interests, and feel free to add a personal touch to make your gift shine.

How do you decide which gift is right for your niece?

Write down her five favorite activities or hobbies. This list can help you to better decide on a gift. If this sounds a little ambitious, write down two activities she participates in or consider a general interest like collecting houseplants or performing ballet. Keep in mind her age range and preferences to find a gift geared to your niece’s taste and style. 

Are homemade gifts an option?

Absolutely. An object made with love, such as a thoughtful care package, is always an excellent choice. Personalized, homemade options are great if you have the time and creative ability. However, consider a purchased gift if a homemade option does not fit into your lifestyle or time constraints.
