20 Thoughtful Gifts For Someone You're Simping For
Checking off names on the holiday shopping list is never easy, but especially not when you're looking for a gift for someone that you really care about. Maybe you've started spending a lot more time with a special person this year. The relationship is in its early stages, but the feelings are super strong. You're officially "simping," as the kids would say. And you have no idea what to get them as a present this year.
Internet slander would have you believe that simping (or showing too strong feelings for someone) is a bad thing. According to Urban Dictionary, a simp is "someone who does way too much for a person they like." But if you want to go out of your way to show someone you care, don't let the internet stop you. I proudly simped my now-husband when we were just two kids in high school and look how that turned out!
These thoughtful gifts will let the other person know they were top of mind when you made the purchase. And hopefully, the person you're shopping for is simping you too. (I mean how cute would it be if you both stumbled on this article and wound up gifting each other the same thing?!)
Whether the person you like is a fitness buff, techie, self-care sage, plant parent, or sports fanatic — there's something on this list for everyone that will make them feel seen and loved. There's nothing shameful about showing someone you care. So without further ado, here are the best gifts for the person you're simping for.
Inklings Paperie Scratch Off Vouchers
Surprise your special someone with breakfast in bed or dinner and a movie under the stars with Inklings Paperie Scratch Off Vouchers ($18). That you're the one bringing them the meal or accompanying on that romantic movie date is just a cherry on top.
Taylor The Eras Tour Hoodie
If the person you're simping is still heartbroken after not snagging Eras Tour Tickets, buy them this ArtMelissaCo's Taylor The Eras Tour Hoodie ($11.89) to heal. You'll be on their mind every time they pull it on.
