I’ve talked about gift buying before. I truly believe everyone falls into two camps: those who get it and those who don’t.
And I don’t want to even mention those who don’t even bother!
I got chatting with Bronnie Curnow of Beautiful Gifts about this and she agreed. The biggest mistake people make is that they buy for themselves, not the person on the receiving end of their gift, she says.
And Bronnie should know. Beautiful Gifts is is an online gift store where you can find gifts for every occasion including birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, children’s gifts, Mother’s Day gifts, Christmas gifts, baby gifts, pet gifts and many more. Products include plush toys, aroma reeds, candles, jewellery, bags, bath & body with brands such as Royal Doulton, Christopher Vine Design, Glamour Academy, Nougat, Doog, Safade, Lollia, and Twist & Pout. Best of all they come exquisitely wrapped, so that job’s done too. Bronnie’s also got a blog too.
I asked Bronnie to guest blog for Styling You in my ongoing campaign to have all people skilled in the art of gift giving. She’s not only done that but also offered two prizes for Styling You readers. Read on for details on how to win one.[table id=7 /]
