Continuing the series about gifts, today I want talk about Do and Don’t concerning gift etiquette. There some several rules that you want to follow, if you want to be known as well behaved and educated person. Let’s not ignore that first impressions are the most lasting.
I would not recommend you to gift this to women
For, example it is not a good choice of woman if she decided to present a tie, it is really rare to match the taste of any person. As well as man could never guess right lipstick color. Actually it is better to avoid cosmetic as gifts, and do so if man surely knows which perfume his lady uses. But, the cosmetic accessories is a way out, say for example beautiful compact mirror.
Avoid gifting animals, even the cutest ones if you did not discuss it with the hero of the day in advance. It’s always a good idea to get a painting, reproduction as a present, if you are not familiar with tastes of a person. It is fine if after such present you will never visit house, so person with a clear conscience, could leave it somewhere in the attic, but what if you are frequent guest, so thoroughbred will have to put your present on the wall, even he does not like it.
Unusual presents, like tin lamp, most commonly spent its days on the attic, if you want to present such this as fair gypsum figurine, make sure that person is a collector has at least slight interest in such things. In any other cases, such gift will only be unwanted baggage.
Don’t present items that you couldn’t find a use at your own, even if it is new, well, if you could not find a use for it, who said that your friend will. Only antic furniture or jewelry is good as used gifts. Bag or umbrella being used already, better to simple gift to your friend or relative without any excuse. For birthday or any other occasion new is always best choice even it is modest gift.
Of course, such present will always be useful, though this practicality makes it less charming. Yet, it is very common to practice such gift ideas.
If you are willing to buy a book, and you want to right a compliment on it, do it if the reason is good enough. You can include compliment slip inside the book, or you can write something of course not on the page with title, but on the left empty one.
Say you know each other for a long time or if you are best friends, sometimes it is better to discuss the present, especially if you are going to get something useful. But, always do it as s proposal, for example if you friend would like to get tablecloth or coffee machine, well if she want a blouse, get her a blouse. Young men, always has to keep in mind about level of intimacy of the gifts, especially if your beloved one lives with family. Even useful underwear set, could be taken in the bad part.
