How is it possible to capture your feelings, thoughts and all the love you have for someone in a single item - a gift?
You're not alone in the struggle. We spoke with some very lovable humans to learn more about the different types of gift recipients.
Perhaps these (horror) stories will set you thinking about your next gift or inspire you to re-evaluate your gifts / recipients. We're here to help if you are looking for the perfect gift.
1. "Did you not refer to my gift registry?"
Ever tried going the extra mile and surprising your friend with an unexpected gift? Remember that trepidation and anticipation as you eagerly await their excitement and "Wow, this is everything I've been dreaming of!"
Instead all you get - "This is not my colour / I'm not really looking for a new wallet / Erm...thanks". OUCH.
Sometimes, it is really wiser to listen to the requests of these folks and give them exactly what they asked for.
5. "Eh, this is so ugly, this is uncool and this is..."
We can't win them. Nothing impresses them. Scratch the cuddly soft toys - too lame.
Do not even attempt to buy apparel or accessories - too 'last season' or it's just not their colour. No tech gadgets - too mainstream.
Why does gifting have to be so tough?
