General Shopping TipsThis guide contains only some selected suggestions - Neopia is full of great gifts!
While shopping, it's usually a good idea to try to pick out items that look nice.
Animated items, or those drawn with a lot of detail, always look expensive, even if you didn't spend a fortune.
And keep in mind that unless you're going for a joke, avoid gross foods, odd books, or creepy toys.
It might send the wrong message (what would you think if you were sent a rotting fish?)
Things like Codestones, Dubloons, Nerkmids, map pieces, pet/petpet paint brushes,
morphing potions, neggs, bottled faeries, or job coupons are sure to be appreciated by most players.
When shopping for someone, their gallery is a great place to start.
If they have a wish list, that makes it easy on you!
If not, do some research to see if there are items missing from their gallery.
Petpets / Petpetpets
Petpets are great, customizable gifts. Try a Neopet / Petpet matching site like this one to get started.
If you're not sure what type of petpet they might like, you can send a petpet paint brush that matches their pet.
Petpetpets also make fun gifts, although they can be pricey -
see the Further Resources section at the bottom of the guide for more info.
Be wary when purchasing avatar items - it is difficult to tell which avatars a player has without asking.
On the plus side, most avatar items are easy to sell if they do already have a certain item avatar.
