Gift giving doesn’t have to be stressful. To be an awesome gifter, it just takes a little forethought!
Here are a few questions to think about (or maybe even ask them) before picking out that next gift!
What colors do you notice them wearing a lot? Do you know their favorite color?
Use that color in your choice of wrapping or gift bag
What is the hobby or activity that they love? Have you heard them talk about wanting to try something new?
Look for something related to this hobby or activity! If they love to paint – maybe a new brush set or gift card to Michaels. If they love to play basketball – maybe a water bottle or a team t-shirt.
Or get them a gift card to try that hobby or experience!
Do they collect something or have a favorite type of animal?
My sister loved turtles for the longest time – so I tried to find cute turtle themed items, and my daughter loves cats so I know anything with a cute cat will be a hit!
Gift giving does not have to cost a lot of money.
I am a firm believer that it is the thought that counts the most – as long as you actually put some thought into it!
If the gift is for your child’s friend, classmate or someone you don’t know well – go ahead and ask these questions of the parents, other friends or family members. Friends love to help and I am sure parents would appreciate it as much as the kiddo!
And of course, no one gets it perfect, so be sure to get a gift receipt!!
