- Try to buy something you know the recipient wants or needs. This doesn’t mean you have to ask them directly, just keep your ears and eyes open. Most people are always talking about things they wish they had.
- Remember that the gift is for someone else and not you, therefore be aware of the likes and dislikes of the recipient, and don’t just buy something that you would want yourself.
- Planning and buying a gift in advance gives you a better chance of buying that perfect present. After all, we should all know when our friends and family’s birthdays are so there should be no reason for any last minute shopping.
