#1 Problem Solvers

One of the best gifts you can give someone is a magic wand that makes their issues disappear. Sadly magic is not real, and you have to think of some other ideas on how your gift will make that person’s life better. For instance, if the person is complaining about a sore neck, make an appointment at the local spa to get that neck fixed and relaxed. You will most definitely give the best present that person can ask for. When considering this type of gift, there is a warning: do not buy a problem-solving gift if they do not know about their problem!

#2 Do Not Create a Problem 

If you know the person very well, you will know what to buy and what not to. Consider this when purchasing a gift that they will treasure. Do not give them a gift that will cost them time, effort, and stress. Do not buy a gift card when you know the person cannot decide, do not buy them a puppy or a bird if you know that it will only bring frustration instead of happiness. Here is a thought; are you buying the present for yourself or someone else? Think of their needs and wants, not your own. 

#3 Give Them What They Want

Listen carefully when you ask the person what they desire for their birthday, Christmas, or anniversary present. You will never disappoint when you get what the person asked for. If your little girl asks for a trip to the zoo, plan the outing and take her there. If your husband is dying of boredom and is a car enthusiast, consider purchasing a collection of rc drift cars, there is a 99% chance that he has hinted for it. If your girlfriend wants quality time on her birthday, give her the present of making a homemade meal and a binge tv-show where the two of you can spend the whole day. 

#4 Sentimentality 

Giving a gift to someone with sentimental value will never get old. It is a type of gift that will always be treasured. Think back to when you and the person shared an inside joke, made great memories together, or listened to a song where you both danced the night away. Giving sentimental gifts requires more effort and thought, so plan ahead when you decide to give a memory box or a playlist for someone special. 

Giving gifts is supposed to be fun and rewarding. Do not overthink the process of giving the perfect gift. If you deeply know someone, you will know what present to get.
