Avoid these mistakes when offering gifts

Picking up the right gift for someone can prove to quite a challenge sometimes. You don’t want to disappoint or even offend the celebrated. Instead of spending money on an improper gift, read the following list of the gravest mistakes you can make and some solutions which are guaranteed to work.

1) The same gift offered twice to the same person

‘I happened to offer a friend the same book twice. Two years had passed and I forgot I had already offered him that book before. My friend had a good laugh. Even today, he owns two copies of the same book, which has an inverted mermaid on its cover.’ This is the story of Christian, who works at a bank. Now, Christian has an account on a site which specializes in gifts and he has a clear record of what gifts he made to whom. He connects with a username and password and checks it out every time he needs to buy gifts. You can use this solution too and avoid making the same mistake.

2) Clothes too large or too small

Are you calling her fat? Or are you under the impression that he’s that small? Let your loved ones pick their own clothes.

3) Used stuff

Don’t gift wrap a book that already has your name written on it or coffee stains on the pages or pen markings throughout the text! It represents bad taste and it leaves the impression that you are a miser.

4) Improper gifts

If he has a problem with alcohol and he wants to quit, don’t offer him whisky. If he’s a non-smoker, don’t give him cigarettes! If he has diabetes, don’t bring him a big box with a purple cow on it (chocolate)! Don’t buy him perfume if he’s asthmatic. If she’s a grandmother, don’t offer her a mini skirt. For a teenager, a doll is an improper gift! Think before buying! And don’t forget, never give someone a book on weight-loss diets! I won’t even bother explaining why.

5) Gifts which depend on taste

Home decorations, vases or crockery are considered things which people choose for themselves. You put someone in a delicate position if you offer these as gifts. It would be disrespectful to you if he/she doesn’t keep them in sight and it would be really stressful for him/her to have to see them every day out of respect. Pets also fit this category. A hamster might be cute for you, but it could be frightening for your niece.

Solutions which work every time
