Hello! I’m David and Proper Presents is the name of my unique gift ideas blog. I promise you'll only find the very best gifts I would consider buying myself.
Instead of writing about cheap gifts or tacky gadgets, I only look at products that amaze, excite, or satisfy. You’ll find a wide range of once-in-a-lifetime experience days, tantalising foodie subscription gifts, as well as interesting gifts and gadgets. I try to cover a wide range of options so there’s something for everyone here. Rest assured, you won’t find cheap and tacky ideas here. All you will find are proper presents for birthdays, wedding anniversaries, or seasonal events such as Christmas.
