How To... Choose The Perfect Gift!
WE MAKE YOUR GIFTING EASIER THIS YEAR WITH A GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT ITEMS FOR THE RIGHT PEOPLE

It’s that time of year again when you have to spend hours finding and wrapping gifts for family and friends. If you dread doing this because you never know what to get everyone, remember that the best presents are both unique and thoughtful, letting the recipient know you’ve made an effort to find something they’ll love. Here’s how you can gift others with meaningful presents they’ll treasure forever:

BUDGET BEFORE BUYING

Before doing any gift-purchasing, work out a (realistic) budget. You can’t spend your entire annual bonus on gifts and have nothing left to get through ‘Janu-worry’. Allocate more or less the same amounts for adults’ and children’s gifts. Don’t leave your shopping to the last minute, because you’ll miss out on great deals and discounts. Above all, stick strictly to your budget. In these hard-strapped economic times, nobody can expect lavish gifts. It really is the thought that counts.

TIP

Save a fortune by doing a family gift swap. Put each member’s name into a hat. Each person then draws a name and that’s the only person for whom they’ll buy a gift, with a set price limit for all gifts.
