Every gift reflects how well we know the recipient. We spend hours trekking from store to store, trying to find the perfect present. But what makes a gift perfect?
Gifts highlight your connection to the receiver. The perfect gift is something out of the ordinary—something that’s not necessarily on their wish list but you know they’d appreciate because it represents a shared experience, shows support for their interest, or helps them get through their days.
If you know them well enough, you can choose not to just give them something they’ll like, but also something that they never knew they needed.
In the end, buying the perfect gift for a loved one also gives us pleasure. If the recipient is perceptive, they’ll recall a fond memory or understand your message. We can already imagine them untying the bow, peeling back the wrapping paper, and then breaking out into a big smile as soon as they see what we’ve gotten them.
We asked some personalities what gifts they would give their loved ones. After giving it much thought, they were more than willing to share their gift list.
