Finding the right gift for others is a struggle we all face every now and then. Of course anyone can buy a gift for anyone, but when you have to buy a gift that the person will like and appreciate, that is where the real struggle begins. If you do not put in the effort when buying a gift for someone, then no one will put in the effort when buying a gift for you. Therefore, regardless of the occasion, make sure that the gift you are buying will be liked and appreciated by the recipient. And if you want some tips on how to buy a good gift for someone, here it goes:
1.Turn towards the past
If you are buying a gift for someone, then of course the person isn’t a total stranger to you. You either know the person personally or via someone. If you know the recipient personally, then look back at your times with him/her, the likes, dislikes and everything else. Consider them. Then, buy a gift based on the conclusion you draw from these considerations. Maybe there is something the person may have mentioned in the passing that he/she wants or would like to have. That’s the first clue as to what you can buy as a gift. The better you know a person, the easier it will be to buy the gift.
2.See their likes and interests on social media
From the onset, please do not mistake it for stalking. Take some liberty and view the person’s profile on all of his/her social media accounts. Social media accounts tell a lot about the person that they would not tell otherwise as openly. You will get a great deal of idea as to what you can buy. At the very least, you will have a list of things you know for sure you shouldn’t buy.
3.Add a bit of yourself
Just because you are buying gift for someone, doesn’t mean you have to make it all about them. Feel free to add a touch of yourself in them. Something that the person will remember you for. For example, if you are a gift as simple as a mug, then maybe write a short poem on a paper and place it inside the mug. So, whenever the person uses the gift in the future, you will be the first person who will come to their mind. Be creative, and add something beyond the conventional. The point is to make the day special. If you think putting yourself in the gift (not literally) will make the person feel special, then go ahead and do it.
