How to be better at giving gifts.
We all want to be better at this; to give the perfect gift. We strive for that moment when they open the box, and we can’t wait to see the look on their face. Yes, there is a momentary thrill for both giver and recipient, but what happens afterwards? Why is it that some gifts are destined for a box in the attic?
It comes down to the two viewpoints surrounding the gift. The giver is usually focused on seeing the look of surprise, on trying to delight and impress the recipient; whereas the recipient is more focused, in days to come, on how the gift can be used and enjoyed.
When choosing a gift, it might be best to ask yourself if the person you intend to buy for would find the item useful. Put yourself in their shoes and look at the gift from their perspective. The thing we most want to give, though cool and distinctive, is not always what someone wants to get. Here at Silver Shoals Emporium we strive to find a balance between the unusual and the useful, to present a selection of gift ideas that will be both unique and thoughtful.
It’s not always an easy task to find the perfect gift but we hope we’ve helped you do just that. We hope we've saved you time by eliminating hours of internet searches and have helped you find something you never thought to look for.
