Those of you who are in a relationship may want or need to learn the art of giving to the one you love for this holiday season. Gifts aren’t limited to holidays by any means. BUT this post has a holiday focus because the holidays are coming up, and we want to make sure you’re ready. 😉
The art of giving to the one you love, for this holiday season at least, starts with how well you know this person. Do you know what they like? If no, you’ll have to find generic ideas, which is fine but not great. If you know what they like, you’ll be well position to find the right gift.
If you are new to each other this Christmas season, do yourself a favor and ask questions about the things they like. Keep a list handy for when you go shopping. If you pay attention to what they say and how they react to things, you can get a good idea of what they want.
What They Need Vs. Want
There are some people that hold off buying themselves things they want because they are concentrating on only getting the things for themselves that they need. If they’re one of these people, consider getting them things that she wants. If they’re the opposite, get them some things that you know she needs.

If you need further help in selecting the perfect gift, ask their friends and family members what they think would be appropriate. Sometimes friends and family have a unique perspective about this person and can give you a lot of ideas about things you never thought of.

Another way to figure out what they like or don’t like is to go shopping with them. Make mental notes of the things that catch their eye when you’re out. A nice pair of shoes? Some jewelry? Take note of anything they linger on but ultimately don’t buy for themselves. Won’t they be surprised when they open up your gift and it’s the thing they wanted!
The Bottom Line
The art of giving to the one you love for this holiday season doesn’t have to be difficult. Find out what they like and use your imagination. At the end of the day, it really is the thought that counts.
