Darlings, the holiday season is upon us and you know what that means…. holiday gift giving!
Simply because we are women, we are often tasked with the tremendous task of making sure everyone has a gift for the holidays. And when I say everyone, I mean everyone. It can become quite a burden if we allow it, but my darlings, we shouldn’t let it get to that point!
Gift-Giving Etiquette For The Holidays
As always, we need to be mindful of etiquette when it comes to anything surrounding the delicacy of the holidays. People are often stressed, tired, and overwhelmed. We want to keep things simple and remember these rules:
- Think like the recipient. You aren’t buying what you like, but what they like.
- Give experiences! It doesn’t have to be something tangible. A trip would be a fantastic gift.
- It’s the thought that counts. Whether you are the gift giver or the recipient, know that the thought that goes into the gift is the most important part of the gift!
- It is better to give than receive. Don’t expect anything in return!
- Personalized gifts are special. You can make even the simplest gifts special with a bit of personalization.
- Make sure to wrap it! Presentation matters.
- Include a gift receipt just in case.
- Don’t forget the card!
- Buy items from wish lists if available. Especially for those that are traveling across the country for the holidays, you can ship things directly to them so they aren’t having to travel home with them.
- Ask what someone needs! It’s ok to get their input.
- Avoid giving out gifts in front of others – especially if some others aren’t receiving anything.
- Don’t overspend! Keep a budget in mind. It doesn’t have to be expensive to have meaning.
- Don’t leave anyone out. If you’re going to buy for one person in a group, make sure you include everyone.
