You have a CRUSH on someone, it is so exciting but scary at the same time. You want to let this person know how you feel. But it is a little intimidating to just walk up to them and tell them directly as you are unsure how they will react. So you find yourself wondering and looking for some ideas of how to give your crush a gift secretly.
Watch the video version of this article:
Although almost everyone from young to old goes through a stage in their lives where they have a crush on someone. This person could be a classmate, a co-worker, a friend that you have known for a long time and even someone that you don’t know at all.
But why all the secrecy, surely if you adore that person and feel that you could be in love with them and would like to date them, then why would you not want to let them know who you are? Why would you want to give your crush a gift secretly?
The First Reason which is the biggest reason why people do this is because of the fear of rejection. They fear that when their crush sees who they are, they may not like them in the same way and there is the possibility that they would refuse to accept the gift that they were given. By giving them a gift anonymously, they have no choice but to accept this gift and keep as they do not know who to return it to.
The Second Reason would be if they are already friends with their crush they don’t want to be the first to admit their feelings for the other person without being sure how they feel about them. This would also be a fear of rejection as well as fear of damaging their friendship.
When anyone has a crush on someone else, they find themselves doing strange things that they wouldn’t usually do. They go out of their way to see this person or bump into them. They are always trying to be around them or near them as much as possible. Some even build up the courage to talk to them all of a sudden even though they have never really been friends with them before. They then will secretly leave all sorts of messages and gifts for them to find.
There is a downside to this too:
There is another side of to giving your crush a gift secretly. A down and creepy side which will all depend on what type of gift you give them and how often you send them these gifts. If the gift is too expensive and way too big, it could be received negatively. If you send them too many gifts too often then it could become very creepy and uncomfortable for your crush.
And when they find out that you are the sender, they will remember how bad they felt when they received the gift. This could cause your crush not liking you back because of that very reason.
So how do you find the best gift for your crush and how to surprise someone with a gift without it being creepy or making them feel uncomfortable? The whole point of giving your crush a gift is firstly to do something nice for them and by doing that you want to ensure that you don’t scare them away. So the best way is by making sure the gift that you give them and the way you give it to them is kept fun and lighthearted.
Before you can find surprise gifts for your crush that are perfect for them, there are some things that you would need to consider and things that you need to do which would also depend on how well you know your crush. Things like:

Ways to give your crush a gift secretly
When it comes to finding ways to give your crush a gift secretly, you should always consider safe places. Places where they will find the gift without it going missing or can be stolen. It is best to choose a place that only your crush has access to such as:
- Items that they carry on them all the time, like a bag or a book if your gift is a card, tickets or voucher of some kind
- You could leave the gift in their mailbox or have cute things to send in the mail to friends via a courier service.
