Are you looking for that special gift for a special person and occasion but can’t decide what the gift should be? What do you do? Where do you start? Consider this pearl sometimes attributed (perhaps mistakenly) to Pablo Picasso: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”. With that in mind, here are some tips to consider when trying to nail down that extraordinary something you want to share that is so extraordinary you are willing to give it away.
What Do You Want to Say?
Because giving a gift is a way of communicating how you feel to the recipient, consider what you would most like to share with this person Is it a feeling? Perhaps it is heartfelt advice. How would you put into words that which comes closest to conveying how you feel or what you want to say? What sort of gift most closely reflects those words?
What Does the Recipient Like?
Make a list of that special person’s likes. If books are on the list, make a list of the books you believe he or she would love to read. Do any of these books reflect the message that connects you two in a special way? Does she or he like accessories? Maybe a necklace, bracelet or a new fashionable belt would be a good idea? If a watch is on the list, search online websites, such as My Gift Stop watches, for a watch that he or she might find most appealing and that might convey that feeling or message you want to convey.
Even if you do not know your life’s gift, you can still find something special to give to a special person that reflects how you feel or what you want to say. You just have to search your heart for what you want to say, make a list, and then make a choice.
