7 Most Common Gift Giving Styles...Which One are You?
No matter how objective you think you're being when you're shopping for a gift, the gifts you give say a lot about you. So, as the old adage says, "Know thy self". Discover your Gift ID and hone in on the gifts that you're best at selecting. Then focus on the person you're shopping for. Here's a list of the 7 most common Gift IDs to help you find yours and make gift shopping easier than ever.
You're Type A all the way. Don't deny your prowess for helping people live more practical and organized lives. You don't believe in stuff for stuff's sake. Highlight their interests and abilities when heading down this path so you don't offend anyone.
When something makes you smirk, smile or giggle, you know you have to have it. We're talking novelties, gag gifts, unusual ideas, and other one-of-a-kind off-beat ideas that only you have the talent to unearth. Once in this territory stick close to what you know about your receiver to be sure that they get where you're coming from or don't and enjoy their utter confusion.
The first place you look when shopping for anything at all is the handmade, artisanal or DIY shops. That is, if you don't have time or ability to make it yourself. You want to find things that are made with heart and soul and are of a kind of quality and uniqueness that you can't get just anywhere.
The Memory Maker
You're not big on "stuff". You're more of a minimalist when it comes to gift giving, but you know that the way to build strong relationships is through experiences. Whether you're setting them up for the adventure of a lifetime or a simple outing for the two of you, you give gifts that make memories not gifts that gather dust.
If it's hot, it's something you bought. You have your finger on the pulse, or at least try to, and adore your reputation for giving gifts at their peak popularity or, when you're really lucky, just before they go big. The thrill of the hunt is your driving force.
The Gilded Giver
You're a show off. You know it. You love to spoil everyone around you including yourself. The gifts you give are a splurge to say the least and your aim is simple...to knock them off their feet by spending beaucoup bucks. But, no matter how much you spend, you have to give something that shows you know them if you want the squeals of delight that you're hoping for.
For you, no purchase is complete without some kind of customization or personalization. Whether it's a fully inscribed message, a monogram or anything in between, you can't imagine giving a gift without some sort of special touch that makes it uniquely theirs.
