Have you gotten a gift yet?! It’s almost Mother’s Day. Whenever I purchase gifts for other people I always want to get gifts that are meaningful and useful. My goal is to purchase a gift that will cause the receiver to be ecstatic because the gift is spot on. Either it’s just what they wanted or the gift is exactly what they need. Below is my personal 3 step process that I use to determine the type of gift I’m going to purchase.
Assess their profile
What do they like most? Gardening, sports, beauty, electronics etc. Their personal profile will steer you in the direction you need to go.
Assess the goal
What is the goal in your gift giving? Do you want to be a blessing? Or do you want to make an impact with your gift? You should have a “reason” behind your gift giving thus helping you decide what you need to purchase.
Assess your budget
Know what you’re willing to spend on the gift. Plan it out before hand. This ensures you don’t go overboard in your spending.
Now that you’ve made the 3 major assessments use my Ultimate gift giving guide to get an awesome gift for your loved one!
