by Phyllis Hofer Blogger
Christmas is coming up and you don't know what is the best Christmas gifts for brother? Can I choose what for father's birthday? If you have many questions when choosing the perfect gifts for your friends and relatives on the special occasions, this post is for you. You know gifting is not just about the physical exchange of objects, it is a way to communicate and send a message to the recipient of the gift. When you put some ideas into it and pick a meaningful gift, it becomes a wish for someone’s happiness. However, a poorly-chosen present can send a message that’s downright insulting.

In any case, you can give a thoughtful gift - all it takes is a little creativity and perceptiveness. With these tips for mastering the art of meaningful gift-giving, you will leave ready to take the prize for “best present given” at your next special occasion!

1. Give by observing

The main rule of meaningful gift giving is observation. People who have mastered the art pay attention to what their loves and friends say and what their interests are. People are continually dropping hints about what their likes and dislikes are, frequently when you least expect it! Would they like something valuable, or something decorative? Something for the family, or something for themselves?

Thoughtful gift givers likewise understand the conditions of their recipients. People generally don't request what they want or even realize that they need it — but by paying attention to what might make their life easier or what they need replaced, you can almost pick the ideal gift.

2. Give by personality


Neglecting to consider who you are giving to is a certain fire approach to have an awkward gifting experience. But matching the present to their interesting sends a message that you care about who they are. Trendsetters may have different gifts than fitness aficionados. Your travelist friend may like a leather bag or visa holder, while your friend who loves to entertain may appreciate new tableware — you get the thought.

3. Give for good luck


On many events, like graduation or a housewarming party, you might want to give a present that wishes the recipient good prosperity and fortune. Tap into the myths and symbolism related with auspiciousness and good luck — and get creative! Moonstone, the owl, and agate are thought to bring protection and good fortune, while peridot, turquoise, and the frog are thought to assist in healing.

4. Give for a good cause

You may know at least one person who impossible-to-shop-for, for some reason: he is either a minimalist who wants nothing more, or he already has everything. Frustrating?

Well, it does not have to be. Give them a present that supports a good purpose, or make a donation in their name to a reason or charity that is near and dear to their heart.

In case you don't know where to begin, why not give them a gift voucher that gives microfinance chances to deserving entrepreneurs and let them have a great time of picking their recipient, tracking the loan, and getting feedback along the way. In the event that they are a culture lover with a passion for handcrafted goods, send them a gift voucher and let them pick a traditional handmade gift that supports an artist and their family. There are a lot of ways to give back to the world while giving for people you love!

5. Give by niche interest or hobby


The hobbies of friends and relatives can also direct you in the right direction when looking for the perfect gift. Are they gardeners, or perhaps a wine lover? Giving in this niche is a great way to let them know that you recognize and appreciate their unique aspects.

6. Give creatively

The special gifts you make yourself are especially meaningful because they give your lover that you have used your time, energy and your creative juices to get something nice. The possibilities for DIY gifts are endless and you can get inspiration from almost anywhere, but handwriting letters or poems, coupon books, handmade baked goods or clothing, or even a pretty box full of nice sayings about your lover and memories you have made together are great places to start!

In case you're giving DIY presents, however, it's very important to be perceptive and remember who you're gifting to — one size does not fit all with regards to giving, and Dad likely won't appreciate that handmade potpourri as much as somebody else would.

7. Give by crystal gazing

Offering as indicated by your recipient’s astrological sign can be extremely thoughtful, especially if she is interested in guidance from the stars! For example, your friend is graceful, fashionable dresses can appreciate delicate jewelry or alpaca sweaters, while your analytical cousin will probably prefer something that appears with his intelligence, like a journal or chess set.

8. Give by birthday

Even if your present is not for the special day of the recipient, giving by birthday is a great way to combine it when choosing something meaningful. It's said that wearing your birthstone brings good health, good luck, and prosperity, reminding your loved one how much you care about her. Creativity jewelry is also special because each gemstone has a unique symbolic meaning and is thought to have different healing properties.

9. Give your time

Material things can be jumbling relying upon your recipient, but nearly everybody could utilize some assistance now and again. Offer to watch their children or dogs for a night so they can have some time to themselves, or help them with their next home improvement job. Have an exceptional talent, like a skill for setting up gadgets or giving the ideal foot massage? Give the present of your ability — nothing says "I care" like sharing your skills to give them the best!

10. Give an adventure

Adventures make great non-material presents also, especially if your lover likes to go out. An adventure present can be anything from a skydiving experience to a class where both of you join together, or a membership of a local museum or state park. Again, it depends on the recipient and what her interests are.
