Joy of Gifting Meenu Singhal July 20, 2016 Gifting Every special occasion is accompanied by gifts. While we all love receiving the perfect gifts, giving one can also bring as much joy. The expression on a friend’s face on receiving something wonderful is priceless. But most often very few gifts are kept for oneself and most are kept aside for passing on when it’s our turn to gift. Do we want our gift to be the one that’s passed on or the one that’s special and will always remind them of you. We all love gifts and the joy it brings with it. A lot of thought goes in selecting the perfect gift for our loved ones. It could be something they always wanted, a unique, offbeat holiday, an adventurous trek to the Everest, quirky item which has been on their wish list for a long time, a relaxed day at the spa or a romantic dinner at the beach. There are so many options available that it can be very confusing at times. Here a few suggestions to choose the perfect gift and add ‘memories for life’ for ourselves and for people dear to us. Who is the gift for? What would the recipient like? Are they an adventurist or a book worm, an art connoisseur or a jewelry lover, are they in need of pampering, or someone who comes to life in the garden? Remember, the best gifts are the ones that demonstrate you paid attention to their desires and tailored a gift to address their unique interests. Spend 2 minutes making a list of all the things the person is interested in and things that define who they are. Respect your Budget The cost of your gift will not be the deciding factor in its success. Gifts given with warmth however small the budget are appreciated more so than expensive, rushed and impersonal last minute items. So no worries. Think out of the box The regular gifts which don’t need any thinking, a person gets plenty. Plenty of unconventional options are available once you know the recepient’s likes and have zeroed down on the type of gift you would like to go for. For example: if a person likes travelling, why not give a home stay accompanied with a cultural walk? Give from your Heart What comes from the Heart goes to the Heart. Give a gift which you know your recipient will connect with and enjoy. Include a little bit of yourself. Personalise it! The gift should be an expression of how you feel about the recepient and his/her place in your life. Let the person know how important they are.
