GREAT IDEAS FOR GIFTS
Great ideas for gifts are something everyone looks for at some point.
We encourage you to never lose sight that the very best gifts are those that come from the heart or, if a more casual gift, at least show thoughtfulness for the recipient.
Gifts are for everyone! We call it “keeping the romance” because every relationship requires a level of nourishing, the act of giving instead of taking.
Whether you are in a love relationship, single or otherwise, there is probably someone you are looking to find a present for. Gifts can be for someone special, a friend, a family member, business associate, client or simply to say thank you. And gifts can fit into any budget.
“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” – Steve Prefontaine

GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM AND FOR HER
Gifts for the man or woman you love will most often be more romantic than they are practical, although practical gifts can be just as romantic given under the right circumstances.
Jewelry ranks as one of the top romantic gifts and there is jewelry to fit every budget. Flowers and chocolates are very romantic gestures that allow the recipient to know they are thought of fondly and reminded that they are special to someone.
Sometimes, though, a unique gift is more of what you are looking for. Try something different, like a pair of tickets to a show at the theatre and comedy club or maybe a day driving a race car on a closed track. Maybe a block of lessons to learn how to fly a plane or a day at the spa. Always remember that a romantic escape gives a special gift to both of you!
THANK YOU GIFTS: HOSTESS, BUSINESS, WEDDING PLANNER
Gifts are a great way to say thank you to the host or hostess of a dinner party or event. Quite often businesses wish to thank their clients and of course, who can forget to thank the people who put together their wedding or special event?
Many times gifts can be misinterpreted when given between individuals even though it may be simply to thank them. Keeping this in mind, consider giving gifts of wine, food or gift baskets. These items may appear less personal, but in some cases that is exactly what you want while still showing appreciation.
TIPS FOR GIVING GREAT GIFTS
- Always consider the person you are giving the gift to and purchase or make the gift with them in mind, giving them something that they would want, rather than simply what you want them to have. This includes giving chocolates or other sweets to someone who has stated they are trying to lose weight or don’t want sweets for personal reasons.
- Pertaining to the first tip, put thought into the gift. Think about who it is for and the message you want them to receive through the gift. For example, if the gift is for a business client of the opposite sex, it may be best to refrain from sending them a bouquet of roses, which are generally reserved for more intimate relationships.
- Stay within your budget so you don’t have any regrets later. A gift given from genuine thought and intention does not have to leave you struggling financially.
