5 Steps to Building the Perfect Gift

Christmas season is right around the corner, and let's face it, giving the perfect gift can be difficult. You may have picky loved ones or just want to make sure the gift is perfect for whoever receives it! Gift giving is a lovely skill to have, but it doesn't have to be hard. Check out these 5 steps to building the perfect gift:

1. Identify some of their favorite things to do/eat/use/etc.

People have habits, routines, and favorite products that they use. Use this to your advantage! Ask them their favorite things to use on a daily basis if you are looking for something practical or ask them their favorite things to do or use so you can have inspiration. This could be art supplies, clothes, tote bags, food, and everything in between. Worst case- you can ask some of their friends and family as well if you are really struggling to nail down the right gift.

2. Narrow down an option within your budget

Now that you have a few ideas of what gift to give, it is time to pick the best! Often times people find themselves with great ideas, but they are either too expensive or it just requires too much planning. Find something that you know you can pull off. Usually, this is something that is both meaningful to both of you. 

3. Purchase the gift

This is the time to consider shipping times and everything that happens during the holidays. If you know this is a handmade gift or something that is coming in from far away, it could be a great idea to order it early. Luckily, purchasing has become easier than ever online and in person. Just one click of a button or tap of a card, and you are on your way with a gift they will love.
