1. Don’t End Up Buying Something For Yourself
The biggest and most common gift buying blunder is buying something you want for yourself. Most of us are guilty of this A gift should be a source of enjoyment, pleasure and delight from the person receiving the gift, this is something we should all keep in mind. It requires a thought and effort.
Spend some time thinking about the gift. Understand what the person you are gifting is interested in. Consider what their desires are and what would please them. Consider what the other person may be in need of but may be unable to buy for themselves.
The Art of Mastering Sales
Asking is not stupidity, try it.
The Beginners Guide To Options (Getting Started 101)
Ask one of their family members or one of their friends if they have mentioned anything that they would really like.
You can also just ask whoever you’re buying the gift for. Sometimes the thing they buy may be within your budget, just go ahead and get it for them. If it’s too expensive, get them something entirely different. (i.e. – If she want expensive perfume’ outside of your budget then buying cheaper perfume is out.
