Take This Gift and Love It!  

Tuesday, January 13, 2009
Scenario: Whenever I give gifts to people they never use them. They probably throw them away or re-gift! My friend thinks I might just be bad at picking gifts out. I love all the stuff I give, I just don't get it.

Response: Giving gifts can be hard work sometimes. You have to really know a person's likes and dislikes. That is a big reason why gift cards have become so popular! It allows the individual to purchase what they want. We are all unique and just because we have a lot in common does not mean we like the same items.

If you decide to skip the gift card because you want the gift to be personal and thoughtful, here are 3 tips to get you started:

1. Snoop a bit! Ask people close to the recipient if they have heard about an item they really want.

2. Know your subject! What is their favorite color, store, brand, etc.

3. Put yourself in their shoes! When you pick up an item, ask yourself if they will like it. Who cares if you like it and think it's cool? It's not for you!

If you give a gift and someone does not use it, it is not a reason to get upset. It simply isn't their style or something they have use for at the moment. As long as they say thank you in appreciation that you gave them a gift, all should be Buttafly. After all, it is the thought that counts!
