Gift guides are our favorite and I often recommend this option because it just works. A gift guide is a category in which you place products that match the subject, for example Mother's Day, Valentine's Day or Christmas gift ideas.
A larger gift guide can consist of several categories so that the customer immediately finds his or her way to gifts for grandma, stepmother, mom to be, the romantic, stylish, fashionable, sweetest, tough, travel-loving or sporty mother. With this you remove the stress from the customer, you make it easy for him or her and yet it feels like a personal choice (which has a positive effect on purchasing behaviour). Moreover, a well-designed gift guide is also very good for your SEO (Google ranking) - which is always important, not just during the holidays.
