It's that time of year again…Christmas. You know what you want but are having a hard time asking for it. So, what do you do? You need to find ways to drop hints for the gift you want. This is not as hard as it sounds. Read on to get a few ideas on how to do it.
Dropping hints for the gift you want can be as simple as leaving little notes around the house that are easy for others to find. They will pick them up and then can put them in their pockets or wallet to remind them of the thing you want when they go shopping.
If you are too shy to come right out and ask for the gift you want then leaving little notes around is the best way to get someone else's attention. You could even be a little more sneaky and put these little notes in the car and in their briefcase, stuck to the bathroom mirror or in their lunch box, any where they are sure to find them.
Another good way to drop a hint is to act all excited when you see a commercial for the thing you want. Sing it's praises and mention to whomever is listening what you could do if you had one of those items.
When you are out shopping, go look at this thing you want. Take whomever you are with to see it as well. Show them all the features it has and all the different colors it comes in, if it has to be a certain size then tell them at that time what size you take. Try to remember anything you can about it so when they go shopping without you they can remember to get just exactly what you want.
Get a catalog from the store that stocks what it is that you want and circle the gift and it's description and leave the catalog out in plain sight. I do not know anyone who will not look at a catalog when one is available. We all want stuff and sometimes looking in a catalog will give us other ideas of other things we may not be able to live without.
At some point earlier in the year start a wishlist and keep it tacked to the refrigerator door. When you thinks of things you want, add them to the list. If it remains on the refrigerator door then it is out it plain sight and anyone who cares to look can and probably will especially when the holidays get closer.
In this electronic age you could be a little less subtle and send an email or text about the gift you want as well.
Dropping hints for the gift you want can be quite creative if you really put your mind to it. Come up with unique ways to tell the ones you love what it is you really want for Christmas, and if all else fails, pretend they are Santa Claus and whisper it to them in their ear.
