Two Psychology-Based Tips for Gift-Giving
When it comes to giving presents to the important people in life, everyone wants to be remembered for their ability to pick out the exact, perfect thing.
Giving a great gift makes the receiver feel valued and shows how much they are cared for, along with providing a way to help them remember who the important people in their lives are. With that in mind, here are three simple tips for picking out the best presents all year ’round.
1. Give a practical gift. Studies show that attractive and expensive gifts make recipients feel less close to the giver than do practical gifts that they can use over the long term. It might seem like giving an expensive gift is more impressive, but psychology shows than when it comes to gift giving, money isn’t everything.
2. It’s the thought that counts. Fun and original gifts that show your thoughtfulness about people’s interests are the perfect present to give. For a Dr. Who fan, it would be ideal to give them a gift they can use, of course, but when you can combine their interests with something practical, you are honing in on the ideal way to tell them that you care.
Nobody denies that giving the perfect gift can be stressful sometimes, but knowing your recipient makes it a whole lot easier. Share these these wonderful, wacky (and yes, pratical!)
