It’s no lie that for some people, thinking of gifts to buy for their loved ones can be a bit daunting. So to help you out this Christmas, here’s the Stoker Story ‘Guide to Getting Great Gifts’.
CREATE A LIST OF WHO YOU NEED TO BUY FOR
The first thing I always do at Christmas time is write a list of everyone I need to buy presents for. Mum… dad… brother… boyfriend… secret Santa – and suddenly, once it’s all there on one piece of paper it’s less daunting. I normally do it in a mind map, and tick off people as I go!
2. THINKING OF EACH PERSON INDIVIDUALLY
Once you’ve got your list, it’s now time to think of what you can get everyone. Of course, before you start thinking, just ask them if they’d like anything. Most people say nothing, but sometimes people want something specific, which means it’s easy for you and beneficial for them!
But if you’ve got a long list of people who don’t tell you what they want, it’s all a lot harder. What I do is think back to what they have said they liked, or what they like and follow on social media. That way, you can find out what they’re interested in, and then work from there.
3. SENTIMENTAL ALWAYS WINS
So what if they’ve never said what they like, you’ve just not listened, or they’re not on social media like my Nan! Just go with something sentimental, that always wins! Whether it’s a lovely picture of the two of you in a nice frame or something that is personalised, I always feel like you can’t go wrong with that. I find notonthehighstreet.com is great for presents when I’m really struggling as to what to get a certain someone.
And that’s it – there’s my guide to getting great gifts this Christmas. Do you like buying presents for people or is it an all-round nightmare for you? Let me know in the comments, and also if you have any more tips and tricks I need to add to my guide!
