Of course there isn't anything wrong or un-special about just wrapping a gift and giving it, but a great way to have a person remember and really enjoy receiving their gift, is to hide it, and force the unsuspecting givee to go on a treasure hunt for it!
This is of course a little easier said then done.. but in the end it will be something memorable and special for you and the recipient.
Step 1: Prep the gift
First you need to choose the gift you're going to hide . I highly recommend wrapping this gift, so the recipient will know it's their gift.
There are exceptions of course, such as flowers, and in cases where your recipient will know it's for them, but as a general
rule I like the wrap the gift.
Another good thing about wrapping, especially smaller gifts, is that if it slips from it's hiding place, say in the branch of a tree, and falls onto, say some grass, it won't get lost because the bright wrapping paper will catch the treasure seeker's eye.
