Gift giving can be awkward – lets face it.
There is nothing worse than trying to buy a gift for a picky person. Presents are a great way to celebrate a special occasion in someones life. But there is no point spending time and money on an unwanted gift.
Here are our Do’s and Dont’s – a guide to gift giving.
1. Make it Personal
Try to steer away from ‘all purpose’ gifts.
This may fail to communicate general appreciation. If the person you are buying for has no interest in a gift you have bought for them it might come across as effortless. Generic gifts are easy to come across but that does not necessarily mean your loved one will like or need it. Think about what interests them or what they would really like. It is easy to get caught up buying something that actually interests you!
2. Quality NOT Quantity
Sometimes less is more. A bunch of little things may look impressive, but could be less appreciated than one thing that they actually really wanted. It is easy to get carried away when gift buying but be sure to remember who you are buying for. Think – ‘will they actually want or need this?’. Even if the perfect gift is not expensive, the amount of effort that went in will definitely be appreciated.
3. Listen Up
A great gift will always show how well you know the person.
If a birthday or Christmas is approaching, use the leading up months to listen out for any hints they may drop. Sometimes we do it subconsciously and admit that we would love that album, and sometimes we know exactly when to drop a hint. This will allow you to buy something the person is wanting but may not be expecting. It saves you from wasting time and money on an unwanted gift.
4. Acquire to Their Taste
Order the perfect gift from the comfort of home!
