Guide to Buying the Perfect Christmas Gift
The Christmas season can cause unbelievable stress if you are not organised and prepared. The many things that need to be organized include the Christmas meal, visits or visiting family and friends and even what to watch on TV, so it is hardly surprising that buying the ”perfect Christmas gifts for everyone” can easily be replace with just ”buying everyone Christmas gifts”
After all we have so many people to think about at Christmas, we tend to think it is better to get people Christmas gifts than getting those people a Christmas present that they either love or means a lot to them.
When this happens we tend to unintentionally buy our family and friends gifts we would secretly like ourselves. Be honest how many times have you bought someone a present that says more about you than it does about the person you are giving it to?. Do you tend to buy gadgets because you like spending time in these kind of shops?. This could be true without you even being aware you’re doing it.
Another unintentional thing we do is buy things we think they should have, an example would be buying clothes that are brighter than they would normally choose, in other words something you would choose.
How do we buy the perfect Christmas gift?
The first rule when buying someone the perfect Christmas gift is to put yourself in their shoes, try really hard to imagine what they would like. Think about the buying habits of the person you are buying for.
A good tip here is if the person you are buying for is always getting you the wrong type of present this could be what they would like to receive themselves, as we discussed above.
Secondly be observant not only at Christmas time but all year. Take notes of things the people you intend to buy presents for say they would like or need. Have a method of remembering or recording all this information. You will be able to store this information away ready for gift buying time. Other things to notice are details about their home, what they wear, what are their hobbies and what are they interested in. When the time comes to buy the perfect Christmas gift you will have all this stored information to make a very accurate judgement of what will make the perfect Christmas gift for this person
Thirdly give yourself plenty of time to source the perfect Christmas gift, it is a good idea to buy the gift well in advance of the actual day.
Following these pointers will ensure that the person receiving the gift will appreciate and love the gift; they will also think you have put thought time and effort into their gift. All this results in the perfect Christmas gift.
