How to pick the perfect gift
If you're in need of some present ideas, here's a helpful guide from finder.com.au on picking the perfect gift.
- Things to consider
Is the present for Christmas? If it is, who are you buying it for? Is it for a Secret Santa present or a gift for your significant other? Is there a limit on how much to spend? Consider everything which might help you narrow down your search.
- Things to ask
The easiest way to work out what to get someone is to ask around. You can ask friends, relatives or coworkers for ideas, or even ask the person themselves. Sometimes people would prefer you just ask them instead of you spending money on something they won't like or would never use.
- Things to buy
If you're still stuck for ideas, think back to the 'go-to' gift categories i.e. presents you can't go wrong with. These include the latest book or DVD, a popular perfume, a gift voucher, a photo frame, etc.
