Come Christmas and Santa brings joy to adults and children because they get what they need from Santa. To bring joy to others, it is essential that the Christmas gift chosen should suit the individual’s need. We should avoid the easy way out by gifting a ‘sweater’ since this gift has become too common. Instead gift something that the person adores and likes or a gift that could serve a purpose of an individual. ‘wow’ would be the appreciation from the individual who receives a gift of his desire and ‘that’s cool’ would be the comments from others who would have wished that they could have gifted a similar gift which would have attracted ‘wow’ appreciation by the receiver.
A great Christmas gift should be one which brings out ’wow’ reaction from the receiver and should be making others interested in the item. The gift should have a limited and purposeful use unlike common gifts like sweater and clothing which are frequently used.
To know what the other person wants as a gift is a very difficult task. But this should not be a constraint in selecting a gift. We gift something special to a person because of the close association and we can assume certain factors which could be appreciated while selecting the gift- like the person’s interest in music, games etc.,
Conversation with the individual will throw a lot of ideas about his likes and dislikes and could be helpful in selecting an ideal gift. A person’s character could also help in selecting an ideal Christmas gift for that individual. A Christmas gift is an appreciation, show of love or fondness to a particular individual. A gift that captures any or all of these qualities would be much welcomed.
A person who likes to read could be gifted a book, but if that person has a sense of humoring him/her then book of jokes could be an ideal gift for Christmas. Another example would be to present a travel book on scenic routes for a person who likes indulge in long drives will certainly get a ‘wow’ reaction and it could get others interested. These kinds of specific gifts may have limited use but could serve the purpose of an individual.
A lifestyle of a person also could be considered while selecting a Christmas gift. A person conveyed his wish to have a play station in his conversation with his friend. This friend knew that the other person do not have that kind of time to actually use a play station. In order to satisfy the desire of the individual wanting a play station, a hand game gadget was presented so that the person could use it during his commutation on public transportation. If a person’s desire or qualities or character is thoroughly understood, then a presentation of a great Christmas gift will not be a problem and it is easy to attract a ‘wow’ reaction from the recipient.
