It’s the holiday season, which means many people are thinking about buying holiday gifts.
If you are one of those people who struggle with finding the perfect gift for your loved ones, fear not, these tips can help. There are many things to take into consideration when you’re shopping during the holidays, but it does not have to be stressful or overwhelming. These tips can help you find the perfect gift for the person who is hard to shop for.
Put yourself in their shoes
Think about what they enjoy doing. Do they have hobbies or special interests? Do they enjoy baking or are they in a book club? Ask what do they do with their free time?
Also, consider what is something that they really care about? What prized possession do they have? Maybe they’re a home body and they love the sanctuary of their special home retreat. You could get them a nice gift for their home. A nice rug, a vase, anything they can enjoy in their sacred space.
Give from the heart
Don’t worry about money. This time during the year, you may freak out because you are concerned about how much you should spend on others. Instead of worrying about how much you’re going to spend and how much they’re going to spend, simply give from your heart. And of course give within your means. When you give the gift that is within your means and from the heart you cannot fail. You’ll feel better and make smarter choices knowing that you are not breaking the bank for any one gift.
Give what they need
Think about gifts that they need but they don’t necessarily want to buy for themselves. A detailed cleaning of their car, replacing a cracked windshield are all very good gifts. Perhaps they love driving and absolutely love their vehicle. You could give a special gift of gifting them a deep cleaning for their vehicle; you could also give them a gift certificate to an auto body shop for a paint job or touch up. Perhaps they were in an accident or have a cracked windshield, you could certainly replace this for your loved one and they would be very thankful.
