Those of you who are in a relationship may want or need to learn the art of giving to the one you love. Gifts do not always have to be given just for birthdays or anniversaries or Christmas and the size of the gift should not matter either.
The art of giving to the one you love starts with the feeling you have for this person in your heart. You love them and want them to be as happy as they can be all the time. So, what do you do to make this possible? You make or buy gifts that they will enjoy and treasure forever.
If you are new to each other this Christmas season, do yourself a favor and ask questions about the things they like and keep a list handy for when you go shopping. If you pay attention to what they say and how they react to things they see on television then you can get a good idea of what they 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. Try to stay away from buying things they need and surprise them with a want this season. They will definitely know that you have put a lot of thought into buying them this gift and will treasure how special you have made them feel.
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 they have dreamed about having for a long time.
Another way to figure out what she likes or doesn't like is to go shopping with her. Make mental notes of the things that catch her eye when you are out. A good bet that she wants what is in the store window is if she looks at it for a time then sighs and walks away. Maybe it is a nice piece of jewelry or the latest fashion in boots.
Won't she be surprised on Christmas morning if you have paid attention and she finds that special gift she never thought she would get for herself under the tree. If the jewelry she was looking at is within your price range and you decide that that is what you will buy her, make it more personal by getting it engraved with some small sentiment or even her name. This will endear it and you to her forever.
The art of giving to the one you love does not have to be difficult. If your budget does not run to buying expensive jewelry then find something else to buy or even use your imagination to come up with a gift you can make or present to her like a "coupon" for some service you are willing to perform for her for a specified amount of time.
