Sometimes it is really challenging to choose the right gift for your friend. You try all possible options in your mind and can’t choose anything or even can’t think of anything suitable. Gifting is the art, it says a lot about your personality and relation to a particular person.
It is said that one shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Of course it is true, but don’t you feel a little disappointed when you get something you really don’t like. And do you want your friend to feel that way when you present him your gift? I guess not. But you know your friend better than anyone, you know his hobbies and interests. This is the first starting point for you and it should help you to decide what to get. It is never enough to get gifts of your interests.
The top of everything is your attitude and feelings. The gift should be from your heart, something that you would treasure if it would be given to you. It should whether fully show your own personality or completely be up to the interests of your friend. Don’t delay the shopping for the last day, because usually it won’t help you to make something really special. Try to think carefully and take your time for that. It is always so easy to notice if the gift was made just the last minute and usually the person won’t ever appreciate that.
Cosmetics, perfumes and clothes that’s a widely spread tendency in gifting, though it is very personal things, as long as you are sure about the tastes of your friend then feel free with choosing something of this category, but if you are not sure then better not to take chances. In truth, it is the most difficult to choose the right cosmetics, perfumes or clothes.
Book is the great option, especially if your friend enjoys reading or want to read something of his choice. You may ask him and surpise his eyes before he even can get out to buy that book by himself. Besides book is the source of knowledge and wisdom.
There are some exotic and extraordinary gifts that are presented just for fun. People think it is unique and it will point them out of the crowd. But are you sure that gifting an animal or a small fish will make you look that good? Maybe your friend isn’t so ready to take care of that animal, so obviously it is totally his choice and desire to get him a small home pet. Be really sure of his wishes before you take this step.
Some decorative thing is one of the ways to express yourself as well as make your friend’s mood higher. There are a lot of things you may go for, such as paintings and miniature statues, maybe even so beautiful tiny bonsai tree, that will definitely make anyone’s room look great. But don’t forget to buy a small book telling how to take care of bonsai tree and who knows maybe your friend will get a new and interesting hobby.
Too costly gifts most probably would confuse your friend and make him feel uncomfortable. So that is the option only if you know each other too well and for a long period of time.
Money and gift vouchers can be presented to those who are in need of money, for example there are small kids in the family or a newly married couple. But don’t forget about some flowers and greeting cards with that.
Don’t forget about the greeting cards, they may be funny and serious, beautiful and odd, but that’s not matter at all. Card is the only thing that you can go crazy with, choose anything you like. You may concentrate all the attention on the card itself, making it by your own hands or buying one of the most unusual cards.
