While shopping early so you’re not riding the deadline is preferable, most of us have more than enough on our plates to be proactive.
Gift giving doesn’t have to be rocket science and it’s really about a blend of looks and functionality within the gift that ensures a successful like. Here are some tips for gift giving.
Tip #1: Don’t be too specific with your gift. A functional yet unique gift will score you a win.
Tip #2: Pick some places before you pick the gift. I often find that going into a store can inspire you to buy something you didn’t think of.
Tip #3: Pick a few smaller items out rather than one big gift for the pickier person. You’re more likely to score wins on at least one of the gifts. There’s also more to open, which is always good.
Tip #4: Personalizing a gift is an inexpensive and great way to give gifts an extra Joie de vivre.
