As a sugar daddy, one of your biggest (and most rewarding) responsibilities is showing your sugar baby just how special they are. Sure, you do this by taking them to exclusive events and treating them to once-in-a-lifetime romantic trips. But, you can also make them light up by surprising them with thoughtful gifts.
If gift-giving is not your strongest suit, don’t sweat it. We’ve got a list of the best sugar daddy gifts that will set you apart as a partner. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy their reaction!
Here are the top 10 best gift ideas for your sugar baby in 2023
We’re going to start with a classic: a nice bouquet of flowers. But, the truth is, anyone can stop at their local grocery store and pick up a bouquet of daisies. If you really want to impress your partner, make sure that you buy flowers from a dedicated floristry shop. It will help, also, if you can find out ahead of time what kind of flowers are their favorite.
If you want to go above and beyond with this gift, you might swap out the idea of a bouquet in favor of something longer-lasting like an orchid or flowering bonsai. Keep in mind, of course, that a busy sugar baby may not have time to care for a plant, but if your partner has expressed their love of plants, this will make an amazing gift. They’ll think of you every time they see it!
Finally, always remember to write a card to go with it. Just a few sentences of heart-felt words can make anyone melt.
2: Arrange to have them picked up for your date in a private car
There’s really nothing like getting picked up in a private car to be whisked off for an evening of adventure. And we know, this is 2023. It would certainly be easier to order your date a rideshare. But where’s the magic in that?
Arrange for a private driver to pick them up, and don’t forget to have some chilled bubbly in the back! They’ll arrive to your date location filled with anticipation and gratitude for your thoughtfulness.
3: Spa treatments
As a sugar daddy, you can add so much value to your sugar baby’s life by being dependable, generous, and attentive. But why not keep your partner feeling pampered even when you’re not around?
Spa treatments, including massages, facials, manis, and pedis, are relaxing and rejuvenating so that your partner is energized whenever they see you.
4: A piece of art by their favorite artist
Maybe you took your sugar baby to a gallery opening and they had their eye on one particular piece that was out of their price range. Imagine how surprised and delighted they would be to wake up to that piece of art wrapped up and delivered on their doorstep!
This kind of gift shows that you are tuned into their tastes and desires, which is sure to make them feel cared for.
One of the advantages of this gift is that it has the potential to become more valuable over time. So, not only are you giving your sugar baby something that will brighten their day every time they see it, but you’re also giving them an investment that could brighten their future, too!
5: An espresso machine
Many sugar babies are hard-working go-getters with busy schedules and long to-do lists. And, they’re going to need some caffeine to accomplish everything they set their minds to!
If your sugar partner has expressed a love for espresso, surprise them with their very own high-end coffee maker. That way, they’ll be thinking of you fondly every time they sip a delicious cup of coffee in the morning.
If you’re looking to upgrade this gift, throw in a bag of coffee from their favorite coffee shop. Or, better yet, plan an exciting trip to a coffee-loving country, like Italy or Brazil.
6: Travel accessories
Speaking of romantic getaways, travel accessories can make fantastic gift ideas for travel-loving sugar babies. Whether you surprise them with a brand-new set of luggage, a pair of noise-canceling headphones, or a high-end travel pillow, they’ll appreciate the chance to travel in style and comfort for their next trip.
You can elevate this gift by upgrading their ticket to first-class! Whether they’re on their way to visit you or simply enjoy a trip they’ve planned on their own, they’ll be so grateful that you went out of your way to make their journey extra luxurious.
7: A membership to a gym or coworking space
Maybe your sugar baby has expressed that they would like to attend a gym that’s out of their price range. Or, perhaps they’ve complained that they’re not able to be as productive at home as they’d like. Monthly memberships to spaces like these can significantly improve your sugar partner’s lifestyle and show them that you’re able to provide solutions to life’s tricky problems.
8: A shopping session with a personal stylist
Now, we want to tread lightly with this one. You absolutely don’t want to give your sugar baby the impression that they’re not already stylish and fashionable. But, the chance to meet with a well-known personal stylist to add to their wardrobe and make them feel like a celebrity can be such a great gift.
The advantage of presenting your sugar baby with this present is that you don’t have to guess what kind of clothes to buy them—that’s what the pros are for! By the time the personal styling session is over, your sugar baby will feel ready for the red carpet, and they’ll have a few new outfits for your next dates.
9: Pet supplies for the animal-loving sugar baby
In 2022, it’s incredibly common for young people to have pets, and they are willing to pamper them to pieces! If your sugar baby loves their dog or cat, you can instantly win their favor with gifts for their furbaby. This might include designer accessories like leashes, travel carriers, or pet beds. Or, you might treat them to a pet spa for grooming.
Let’s face it, if you can make a good impression on Fido, you won’t ever have to worry about what their doting owner thinks of you. You’ll be adored by your sugar baby from that moment on!
10: Something specific to their hobbies, career goals, or interests
The truth is, the more time you spend getting to know your sugar baby, the more opportunities you have to learn about what gifts they’ll most appreciate. Is your sugar partner finishing up their degree? Give them the gift of an expensive briefcase that they can use on job interviews, or, better yet, help them get their foot in the door once they graduate. Or, if you know that your sugar baby has been putting off getting their car fixed, the perfect gift for them could be to arrange for it to be picked up and fixed while you take them on a romantic weekend getaway.
The more you can tailor your gifts to your sugar baby’s specific desires or needs, the more meaningful and valuable they’ll be. So, ask your sugar baby some questions about themselves, make mental notes, and give them a gift that is perfect for them.
Final tips on giving sugar baby gifts
Now that we’ve offered some gift ideas for your sugar baby, you’re ready to start shopping! Here are some final words of advice for successful gift-giving:
Don’t be offended if your sugar baby isn’t as excited as you expected.
You might be expecting a big show of gratitude every time you give your sugar baby a gift. And, more times than not, you’ll receive the response you’re looking for! But if not, remember that everyone shows appreciation in different ways. You might also ask whether this gift was the right one and how you might be a better gift-giver in the future.
Don’t check on whether your sugar baby is making the most of their gift.
Maybe you gave your sugar baby a membership to a gym that they aren’t using as much as you expected. Instead of nagging them about it or making snide comments, consider asking whether a different gift would be better for them. It’s entirely possible that they love their gift and just haven’t had the chance to use it. Or, if it’s not the right gift for them, you can make them feel comfortable telling you what would be more appropriate for them.
Don’t expect anything in return.
The first rule of gift-giving is that it’s unconditional. You’re giving your sugar baby a gift because you want to show your appreciation for them, not because you expect something in return. Don’t worry, there are plenty of gifts for sugar daddy articles that your sugar baby is probably already looking into. But in general, sugar daddy gifts are not as common. They’re repaying you with their time and affection.
You’re ready to start gifting! As long as you put some thought and care into your sugar baby gifts, they will feel so lucky to have you in their life. And, you’ll start to look forward to every opportunity to pamper your partner!
