HOW TO BUY AMAZING GIFTS
Gifting is so much more than just the physical exchange of items — it’s a way to communicate and to send a kind message to the recipient of the gift. When you put some thought into it and choose a meaningful present, the gift can bring happiness for a long time.
On the other hand, a poorly-chosen gift can send a message that’s downright insulting.There are lot of views about whether gift giving is an art, i do think it is because buying someone an amazing gift requires some creativity and perspective.
Some people do leave buying gift to the last minute, we all know how that usually ends up. By the time you realize you need to buy one, most probably the gift shops are closed or are closing.
Trying to find the perfect gift that expresses how much you care can be frustrating: nobody likes wandering around the mall on the day before the event, hoping desperately for inspiration.
Some guides below on how to buy Amazing Gift for the people you love.
i. DON’T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE GIFT – Some people think buying someone an expensive gift will blow their mind. Nothing wrong with expensive, but if no proper thought went it to it. It usually turns out to be an awkward gift or a show off of one’s financial standing.
ii. TIME IS IMPORTANT – Purchasing someone an amazing gift requires thinking time, some thought process. Plan ahead, take out time to think, write down a list and eliminate some.
iii. CREATIVITY – Thinking above the everyday gift. Think of what the recipient will never dream of you giving them using some imagination. Something that will be stuck in their mind for years to come, preferably an experience. Something that will bring smile to their faces whenever they think about the gift.
iv. DON’T BUY PEOPLE “”NEEDY GIFT”” – Example a mum or a dad seeing their child school bag or shoe is worn out. Buying them a new one as a gift is not creative. An amazing gift can not be an item someone uses daily because more often that not. They might be thinking of buying the particular item or already have it. e.g shirts, shoes, pants etc
v. AMAZING GIFTS EXAMPLES – Imagine giving your son or daughter, giving them a gift voucher for Piano, horse riding, driving lesson, mountain climbing, parachute jump, ticket to some where there will never ordinarily visit. You get the drift.
vi. GIVE FREELY AS SHOW OF LOVE AND CARE – If you are going to measure the gift or base it on people approval rating to you. It will be difficult to give them an amazing gift because you will most likely restrain yourself rather than give freely as a show of your Love and care for others.
vii. UNDERSTAND PEOPLE’S PERSONALITY – Some people view of amazing gift is something expensive or in vogue. Sometimes it takes awhile for some people to to realize you have given them something truly amazing.
viii. DONT BE JUDGEMENTAL – Don’t buy a fat person a gym membership ticket rather something inspiring.
This not critical, it but it is better to buy someone a gift that will inspire them e.g buying a graduate a book of young successful entrepreneurs will inspire as oppose to buying them an alarm clock.
In all, remember the main purpose of buying someone a gift is to show how much you care about them.
