The holiday season is a very special time of the year. However, it is also a notoriously difficult time of year as well. At this time people begin the hunt for the perfect gift to give to loved ones. What do they want? What do they need? Do they have this already? These questions and more go into choosing the perfect gift. So how do you do it? If you are stuck on ideas, we’ve gathered up five tips for choosing the perfect gift for that special someone on your list.
- Make a list of all the things the person is interested in: What is the person you are buying for interested in? What are their hobbies? Now, right down a list of these interests and try to think of some cool items that person will want. For example, if he or she is interested in music, then he/she may be interested in an MP3 player or CDs, etc. Giftees will usually appreciate how personal presents chosen like this tend to be.
- Ask yourself what that person needs: Try to determine what the person is lacking that he may need. Think on a more general level. This will help you get outside your regular everyday view of that person.
- Do some careful watching: When you are with the person pay attention to what catches her eye. Also, if you have access to their online wish list from a retailer, make note of the items that are listed on it. If you are discrete and determined, you will truly find a goldmine of ideas this way.
- Make it taste good: We all have to eat and drink. Therefore, you can’t go wrong with giving someone a food or a food related product. For example, for coffee lovers you could buy them a programmable coffee maker so that it is also easy for them to make their favorite drink.
- Ask the person what they want: Sometimes the direct approach is best. Simply ask the person what they want or listen to them when they drop “hints” about what they may need.
