Everywhere I turn there are cute and pretty things designed to seduce me into purchasing.
Forget the packet of chocolate-coated biscuits that never runs out, I want a credit card that always has a clear balance
I find myself mentally matching any of my finds with particular friends and family and I just want it to be Christmas now.
Anyhoo enough of my wanderlusting, some more tips for you. Please feel free to add your own in the comments below.
Gift giving tip #7
If you like a little quality time in the kitchen, is there a recipe that you ALWAYS get asked to make? How about making that jam, aioli or slab of healthy chocolate, packaging it up like you’re the Australian Martha Stewart that you are and gifting it to the person who’s always asking?
Gift giving tip #8
If you don’t get to see the recipient of your gift often enough, how about giving a gift that gives them a reminder that you’re thinking of them every month for the next 12 months? A magazine subscription is perfect for this.
Gift giving tip #9
There’s nothing wrong with a giving a gift card or cash. I know many don’t agree but think about it for a minute … if you have a teenage boy to buy for, are you going to make his day more with an iTunes voucher or a pair of socks? The key is choosing gift cards or vouchers you know are a perfect match for that person and what they’re into.
I’m also ok with giving money when I know they’re saving up for something bigger. My son has bought a laptop this way, adding his own dollars to those which he received for Christmas.
