1. Choosing the Right Gift
How do you choose just the right
gift for someone special? First ask about the persons
interests, hobbies, passions, etc. Consider their personality.
Are they practical, whimsical, organized, care-free, casual,
formal, a prankster, etc?
What is their lifestyle? What is their age? Where
do they live (climate, urban/rural)
What do they do with their free time? What grade or
profession are they in?
What culture/heritage/religion are they? What style
of home, furniture, clothes, etc. do they like?
answers to these questions will help you create a gift-giving
"e;profile"e;, which will help you to narrow your gift
choices. Home decor items like lamps, clocks, art, and giftware
make great gifts because they will be used by the special
person everyday. Every time they use your gift, they will think
of your thoughtfulness.
Unlike larger ticket purchases like furniture,
decor items fit into most normal gift price ranges and can
reflect your good taste without disrupting the recipients theme
or room style.Lamps are a great addition to a room, to help
brighten dark corners or the highlight dimly lit work areas. Clocks are a classy gift. Just like
watches, clocks can be given for special occasions like
graduations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, etc. They will
be looked at often, and have traditionally been given for
special occasions. Home Decor and giftware items can add an
individual flare to a room and can reveal your thoughtfulness,
being sensitive to the recipient's style and fashion
taste. Gift basket can be loaded with lots of goodies.
