His/her face bursting with surprise, joy and happiness gives pleasure to the person offering a gift. Gifts can be of any type; big or small, handy or trendy, usable or a showpiece, but they are ‘priceless’. The value of the gifts is infinite as they are from and for near and dear ones. We try to read the mind of a person for whom the gift is being offered. Gifts contain feeling of both the giver and the receiver.  Gifts are for the occasions and vice a versa.

The list is non ending. It may be a marriage party or a formal birthday party of a colleague, or a naming ceremony or a house warming invitation. For all these events gifts should be unique one that would make an impression of your artistic nature.

Nature of occasion

First of all we will differentiate events as family events and otherwise. The choice of gifts and budget differs from event to event. There are no Don’ts in the case of prices while we offer gifts to close relatives while one has to budget the gift for corporate or non-family function.

Family events or functions would embrace Diwali, Raksha-Bandhan, Valentine’s days, Mother’s/Father’s day. With these functions, we offer the gifts for near and dear ones. For personal occasions like a birthday, Raksha-Bandhan, Valentine’s Day, we should keep in the mind that person for whom we are selecting a gift.  It should be useful to that person. For example, Branded perfume and attractive watch could be given to both male and female.  And, we can offer branded shirts/T -shirts, sports accessories or goggles to young boys who are naturally fond of all these. For aged person in the home we could present clothes of their choice. For female of young generation, trendy western wear on jeans, or a jewelry set could be one of the better options.

Sometimes, in case of family members we can take suggestions from them only what they want, but surprise gift gives more contentment than an already known gift. For festive events we can provide personal gifts that are useful to the person or we can gift to the house as such. Here, we have got a wide choice of gifts such as a striking wall clock, a beautiful wall piece that may increase the beautifulness of the wall. Also, eye-catching corner piece or a vase may be a much better alternative. These gifts are also useful for housewarming party.

In personal gifts, we can’t forget books if we are giving them to close one as they are long lasting, but one should know about the books he/she reads.
