The Art of Gift Giving

Monday, March 12, 2012

Valentine’s Day, birthdays, holidays, weddings, baby showers… it seems like everywhere we turn we’re buying gifts for everyone we know! (Is it just me, or is everyone on the planet either getting married or having a baby right now?) It can get expensive, and we can’t always give what we’d like to; trust me, I understand! I would have loved to be able to buy my boyfriend the iPad he wanted for Christmas, but I just couldn’t.

“So, what’s the answer?”

I am so glad you asked! I can’t tell you what to give them, but I certainly can share this: a thoughtful and personal gift can mean so much more than the newest, coolest toy which will be outdated in a few months—or worse, something the person won’t even like! The key to gift giving is actually knowing your loved ones: what are their interests? Hobbies? Favorite foods? Favorite colors? (Did you just go to their Facebook page to find the answers?) People ask me all the time, “what would be a good gift for my ______?” Wife, daughter, cousin, etc. My answer is always “I don’t know. I don’t know them.”

A friend of mine loves journaling and finding inspirational quotes, so for her birthday one year I bought a pretty little journal and handwrote quotes I thought she would like until every page was covered. Another dear friend of mine just got married and I gave her a set of Legos, which she thought was hilarious from a long-standing inside joke. You really don’t have to break the bank for every event; just invest a little time and thought. Gifts like that don’t say, “I love you this many dollars worth.” They just say, “I love you.”

And love never goes out of style.

    This is a message to the admin. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your website: They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic than you have now. Hope this helps :) Take care.

    Website visitors do not come easy these days. It�s hard and it usually takes a long time. In many cases, too much time� So much that you might be ready to call it quits. A friend of mine shared a web traffic service with me on my site and I thought I would share it with you. I was skeptical at first but I tried their free trial period and it turns out they are able to get hundreds of visitors to my website every day. My sales revenue has increased tenfold.
