Times That It is O.K. to Give a Joint Gift

>> Nov 26, 2011

There is something extra special about receiving a gift that is just for you, though there are definitely times when it makes way more sense to give a joint gift. Whether it is for one or more people, from a group of people or to celebrate one or more occasions, sometimes one gift is more than enough. The following are times when it is totally legitimate to give a joint gift.

Mum and Baby

When a baby is born it is definitely cause for celebration. The only thing that the mum is going to want is to be able to care for her new bundle of joy, so when buying
baby gifts think about what the mum will need for the baby and you’ll be helping them both. Baby clothes and toys are always a good idea, or you can even put together a little gift basket and include things like bath soaps that both mum and baby can use.


If you know someone who has just moved into a new place, obviously you don’t need to buy a gift for everyone in the house. The best housewarming gifts are items for the house itself so these will be joint gifts in that everyone who lives there will be benefiting. Art and food are two great housewarming gifts that are sure to be appreciated by all.

Parents’ or Friends’ Wedding Anniversary

Celebrating a wedding anniversary is obviously a bigger deal for the couple concerned than for anyone else, though it can be a nice touch to help make it an extra special day for them by giving a joint gift. It could be a dinner for two or even just some flowers and a bottle of wine, though whatever you give make it about celebrating them as a couple.

Mother’s Day

This is one of those occasions where it makes sense to give one gift, as pooling your money will mean you can get something a little bit nicer. The important part is just that you thank your mum for all that she has done, so do some research into items she has her eye on, then get together with your siblings and get your mum that high end gift.

To Thank a Teacher

If you are finishing up a class where your teacher has been particularly awesome, it’s a nice touch to say thanks for all the work that they have done. This is the perfect time to get a joint gift, as even if everyone in the class just chips in a small amount of money, you should be able to get something pretty decent. If you throw in a card that everyone in the class has signed then you will be making a great collective show of thanks and making sure your teacher feels great about your time together.

When giving or receiving gifts, it really is the thought that counts, so often it can be a more powerful statement to give one big joint gift as opposed to lots of individual ones. Whichever way you go, giving gifts shouldn’t need to break your bank, so know that sometimes one gift really is more than enough.

Good tips. I love receiving gifts, doesn't matter of its value, as it means I have been in the minds of people who give them. :-)
