Christmas is coming up soon, and some of you may still be working on your gift list. Presents can be a big headache during the holidays, because it takes a lot of time and effort to think of the right gift for your luxyfriends. Before you finish your list, keep these dos and don'ts in mind:
1. Do set a budget.
Holiday isn't a time to spend money on presents you can't afford. Sure, it's a time to be generous, but remember to be kind to yourself first and don't empty out your wallet. Start making a list of people you're giving gifts to and set a cap on how much you're going to spend on them. And if you are real rich, ignore this.
2. Do consider giving homemade gifts.
Personally, I tend to appreciate the gift more when it's homemade because it shows a lot of thought and effort on the gift-giver's part.
3. Do be smart about regifting.
If you're planning on regifting, remember to avoid major no-nos, such as giving a used item and giving the gift to a friend of a friend. Regifting a bottle of wine is always your safest bet, but do remember to do it with a personal touch like a small card.
4. Do get a gift receipt.
If you're purchasing something for your friend, make sure you ask the salesperson to include a gift receipt. It's just a polite gesture, and you know your money won't go to waste because if your friend doesn't like the gift, she can just exchange it.
5. Do put thought into your gift.
If you like something, that doesn't mean that your recipient is going to like it, too. Take some time to really think about what she likes. Don't get her a generic gift, and reflect back on your previous conversations to see if she talked about a certain item she's been wanting to get.
6. Don't leave the price tag on.
Make sure you don't leave the price tag on the item and that you're giving a gift receipt and not the original bill. It's not kosher to let your friend know how much you spent on the item, and it's not important for her to know anyway.
7. Don't buy inappropriate gifts.
Make sure the gift you're buying is appropriate for each person. For example, if you're buying acquaintances presents, remember not to overspend or personalize it too much. Take a moment to think about how your relationship is with the person before getting them something.
8. Don't feel obligated.
Don't try to give a special luxury gift that financially matches the gift they're giving you if you can't afford it. Instead, take some time to get them a homemade or thoughtful gift. Millionaires Men and women have enough money to buy want to they want, but they can't buy something homemade. So make a special gift to your millionaire love.
At last, Merry Christmas.
