Hostess Gift Help Is Here!
So when I opened the business years ago cooking duties got transferred to my husband...
much to everyone's great relief.
But what I lack in cooking skills I make up in (at least I like to think I make up in) gift giving skills.
Which considering what I do for a living is a good thing.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner the gift giving is really about to shift into high gear.
Besides the Christmas and Hanukkah gifts there are office party gifts, hostess gifts, babysitter and mailman gifts.
Where to start? I have a check list to help kick start the process.
What is the amount of money that you want to spend on each gift? Keep in mind what is appropriate considering the relationship involved and the history you have with the receiver.
What gifts need to be ordered? What is the time frame that you need to keep in mind to get the order placed? The earlier that you order the more line you will not have to pay rush shipping charges.
Such as personalized gifts..
Do you know colors that the receiver of the gift likes that you can use to help guide you on choosing the gift? Look at the clothes that they wear, what colors are in their home.
These are clues that you can use to help pick out that perfect gift.
Think about what the receiver could use as a gift.
For example, are they very organized and like things that help them stay that way? If so look for gifts that will speak to the way that they run their life.
For example someone who is type A might love a personalized clipboard for keeping notes.
This might fit them better then a blouse or sweater.
Is the receiver someone who likes practical gifts, something that they can get a lot of use out of or do they enjoy gifts that are just for fun? Some of us love presents that we can use over and over again, so something practical (and fabulous of course) fits the bill perfectly! Shopping for gifts can be tough.
But in the end when you take the time and really think about the person you are buying for then you will find something that they will love.
Hopefully these guide lines will be helpful this holiday season.
