It is said that gift giving is an art of its own. Lately there have been many apps developed with gift ideas, suggestions, links to gift shops and much more. But still, it remains elusive how to make someone really happy with a gift you give. This is especially true when it comes to a female being the gift receiver. Husbands face this issue of what to give, and what sort of item will make her happy, all the time.
Understand the character
There are now firms which are “specialized” in this; they will ask you a lot of questions regarding, to whom you are going to give a certain present. You will have to list down their likes, dislikes, personal information such as age and gender etc. But why can’t you consider all that yourself and decide on a gift? Aren’t you the one who know them better than anyone else? When it comes to ladies, husbands tend to think that they only like jewelry or clothes. Or a mistake done by most is assuming a household item is a proper gift and ending up buying lounge upholstery or kitchen itemsfor her. This is a no-no; just take time to get to know the person; drop subtle hints and try to understand their likes and dislikes for real.
Not the amount but the value
You have to understand the difference between these two first. Something can be expensive but the person receiving it might not find any value in it. It is easily understood in an example; if you give a deaf persona radio, or if you present a blind person with a pair of binoculars, even though they may cost a lot, what is the usefulness of it, to them? Therefore you have to make sure you present something that is of value to them. Even though it is of less monetary value it can be really valuable to that person. If you give even a rescue puppy to a small kid you will see the happiness in their eyes and understand the concept of giving something that they appreciate with all their heart.
Gifts fitting different occasions
There are certain gifts the society has ordained for special occasions. For example, anniversaries have pre-decided gifts that are traditional. But the world is not the same and you are free to give any gift you want for any occasion. The “traditional” 1st year anniversary is paper. But in modern times people have been seen to give a clock. Would your girlfriend/ boyfriend or spouse really like that? As time goes by you should give more and more meaningful gifts not something the society prescribes. Also make sure you give a complete gift such as a clock with batteries, puppy with a leash, or a boatwith marine carpets Sydney! Whatever you give it should be with love. So try to choose a gift with your heart. Try to be authentic and truthful. If you can’t decide what to give it is best to enquire from the receiver than giving something utterly mismatched to their taste.
