We at BikerCave (formerly HarleyGifts) know that choosing the perfect gift for that special someone can be tough. Finding that perfect gift for any occasion is often stressful and time consuming. It is often times better to change your way of thinking about the purchase. It is a simple tactic used by the best gift buyers. Instead of looking for a gift for that special someone, try finding that someone in the gift. People like thoughtful gifts more than just typically cool items. Using this method can be very helpful and will be greatly appreciated by the recipient.
What do you want the recipient to feel?
When you open a gift from someone, you immediately have a rush of feelings and emotions. These emotions can be very different from gift to gift because you know what someone is saying to you through the gift. You immediately know how much effort that person put into finding that gift for you. That is why the perfect gift should give positive emotions to both the giver and the recipient. Try to keep this in mind and picture the recipient opening each gift you look at. You'll probably know what their reaction will be before they even receive the gift.
What do they do on the weekend?
Most people enjoy their weekends more than anything. After getting caught up in all the hustle and bustle of a long work week, most people do what they want on the weekends. What does this person do on the weekend? If you called them up on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon what would they be doing? Use this to find an item that goes along with what they do for fun.
Following these gifting techniques will definitely help you get a better idea of what gifts would be the most meaningful for your recipient. Doing so will not only make them happier but will make you happier as well knowing that you've brightened someones day and let them know how much they mean to you.
