The secret to finding the right gift or trinket
How many times have you been given a gift you had to pretend to like? We've all been on the recieving end of that tricky situation. For some, it's simple and others find it almost impossible to come up with the right gift for that someone special. No matter what their taste we have so many styles and products to choose from you are sure to find something you will be proud to give at an affordable price. So... the tricky part. How do you find the perfect gift? The starting point is to do your homework. How well do you know the person? If they are special to you then it is worth finding out a few nuggets of information about them before you start. Below is a list of some helpful things to know.
9 Things you should know
- What is the person's favorite colour?
- When were they born?
- Are they creative?
- Do they have a scientific mind?
- What are their interests?
- Do they love animals?
- Are they spiritual or religious?
- Do they have any social or ethical beliefs? eg, being a vegan etc.
- Do they prefer expensive store bought gifts or something unique or hand made from the heart?
To some these questions may be blindingly obvious, for others a light in the dark. No matter what you consider to be a wonderful gift, it is not you that you are buying for. Knowing the answers to even just a couple of these questions can help you find the perfect gift for anyone, male or female. To see how you can tie it all together, let us take Jill, she is a 34 year old creative type woman that loves purple and animals. Being creative would mean that she will most likely adore creative objects herself. Her love of animals could mean that anything with an animal motif would be more highly regarded, and lastly, she loves purple. The colour purple has connections to the spiritual realm and higher vibrations of divine love, or perhaps she simply adores the colour. Either way you have a lot to go on here. For an example we have some beautiful scarves with interesting and intricate jewellery pieces, Some of which are animal designs. Perhaps a purple scarf with one of these jewelled animal clasps would be ideal for her? Simply look around our beautiful store packed with interesting and wonderful items and you will no doubt find something suitable for almost anyone.
