Choosing Colour Themed Gifts To Suit Every Personality

How To Create Unique Colour Themed Gift Baskets

Do you know your loved one's favourite colours? Maybe they are automatically drawn to specific shades for their clothes or home décor. Certain colours will evoke emotion or hold fond memories of the past. This love of colours is universal and, while our associations or responses to colours are subconscious, there is something totally fascinating about the way coloured gifts can send a message. 


Colour is an integral part of our lives and can be a source of great pleasure and joy. Surrounding ourselves with certain colours can change our mood, soothe tensions, create excitement, and even add a romantic atmosphere. That's one reason why colour-themed parties are so great. So, if you’re searching for uniquely fun gift ideas to suit their aesthetic, colour-themed gifts are a fabulous solution. From pretty pink gifts to fun yellow gifts, soothing green gifts, or classic black, you'll find ideas in our guide to choosing colour-themed gifts to suit someone's favourite colour or their personality.


Join the team at Gifts Australia in exploring the wonderful world of colour. To get started, either pick their favourite colour, get inspiration based on personality, or start with one item you know they’ll love. Then work with the colour and create fabulous colour themed gift baskets. Whether you start with a book cover or a bottle of wine, you can add luxury items, cute accessories and unique gifts. You will have an absolute blast choosing the best things to put in their colour themed gift! 


What Does Your Favourite Colour Say About You?

We are surrounded by colour and often feel an affinity to one or more colours over others. Our bodies physically respond to different colours with changes in blood pressure and breathing, and we subconsciously attach meaning to different colours. For example, if you said you were excited and ecstatic but visually represented your words with brown, friends might be a touch confused. Brown?


Company branding has used colour psychology for years to stimulate a particular response, and studies have provided insight into what people think about different colours. Personality plays an important role and can change a person's opinions of colours. So, exactly what do different colours mean in personality traits?


Red personality traits - Passionate, Bold, Adventurous, Thrill-seeking & Impulsive
Yellow personality traits - Cheerful, Optimistic, Adventurous, Calming & Infectiously Positive 
Blue personality traits - Strong, Dependable, Trustworthy, Loyal, Gentle & Compassionate
Green personality traits - Practical, Helpful, Down-to-earth, Caring, Creative & Nature-Loving
Pink personality traits - Open, Playful, Fun, Sincere, Loving, Innocent & Transparent 
Orange personality traits - Energetic, Vital, Creative, Determined & Enthusiastic
Black personality traits - Mysterious, Elegant, Powerful, Rebellious, Sophistication & Authority

Colourful Gifts To Suit Their Personality Or Mood

While our perception of colours is not always the same, most people interpret them in a similar way. So, if you don’t know their favourite, you’ll find plenty of fun examples you can use. Yellow gifts will always create happiness, and calming blue gifts are always guaranteed to soothe. Whichever one you pick, you can customise them with fun colour quotes and they’re perfect for any occasion or colour-themed party. Let's explore some colourful examples of beautiful rainbow gifts! 


Pink Gift Ideas

Does it get any more charming than sweet all-pink gifts? Pink is the colour of universal love, representing affection, friendship, harmony, tenderness and approachability. Although traditionally associated with little girls, it’s perfect for anyone of any age as pink means ‘sugar and spice and everything nice.’
