How to select a gift for a friend?
To select a gift for a friend, a gift that you think is perfect and truly reflects your feelings, is not easy to come by. You may spend days, even weeks, looking for the perfect gift for a close friend but friends are precious and you want to show you care for and love them by giving them an occasional gift. If you are foxed about what to get, here are some tips to keep in mind when buying a gift for a friend.
A few suggestions
- First thing to do before buying the gift is to find out what your friend is really interested in. Is it books, sports, music or something else altogether. If you know their likes and interests your quest becomes easier.
- Then again you must set a price limit. The rule of thumb is - the older the friend the more expensive the gift. Of course if the gift is very thoughtful or something that you have made yourself (like a sweater or a crocheted tablecloth) then the price becomes unimportant.
- Gift-wrap the present attractively. Even old people like the excitement of tearing the wrapping paper off to take out the gift. Most people really appreciate the thoughtfulness and the extra effort of a gift wrapped and tied with a ribbon or a bow.
- Try to give the gift to your friend yourself. Sending it through the courier is not the same thing. Of course if you live in different cities then you have to depend on the post for delivery.
Always include the receipt in case your friend needs to return the gift.
Don't buy clothes unless you are really sure of the size and the taste because most people are very clear and specific about the kind of clothes that they want to wear.
