The Holidays means relaxation and stress at the same time. Why relaxation? Well, for one thing, you don't have to wake up early and prepare for work. Why stress? Shopping here and there for your Christmas gifts! Finding a love one the perfect gift seems to evade us when we rightfully need it. Why is that so?
First and foremost, shops are offering too many choices. Too many choices means too many considerations. Considerations on budget as well as appropriateness of your gift are the two most important criteria in deciding on what to give for Christmas. For sure, you cannot give your boss something that your colleague may give him, or a child, something that he or she already possessed. Even if you deny having any knowledge about the person already having the item you give as a gift, you cannot bear the disappointment on the recipient's face when he or she opens the carefully wrapped item. And you still cannot bear the disappointment of not being able to see the recipient enjoying your gift.
So, what can one do in order to be able to decide on a gift that fits your budget, yet subscribe to the criteria of appropriateness? First and foremost, you can categorize groups of people that you want to give your Christmas gifts to. How? For example, people at work, people at school, people at home, people you love, people most important to you – such labels will help you fix an appropriate budget and gift.
The people you love, mostly members of the family and significant persons in your life will automatically require more time from you in terms of looking for their gifts. You will normally want to make one's gift different from the other. The other categories, like people at work or school can be given gifts that are basically identical. Colors may vary but it is okay for people at work to receive something that they will also see that the other colleague received. People at work or school have the tendency to compare their gifts from senders. You may opt to decide on a different pattern or size depending on the category of your gift, but such people will always appreciate your gift even if it is the same with her seat mate. At work, it is expected that you give the same gifts to avoid jealousy.
Since your officemates undergo the same work pressure that you go through, some of the great gift ideas are planners, aromatherapy sets with the newest craze of using soy candle, personalized coffee mugs, compact mirrors, etc.
Why are these gift ideas perfect for your colleagues? Planners come in package that is good for a year. If they have received one last year, then it is okay for them to receive another one. If they did not receive any, all the more reason for them to get one. The aromatherapy sets with a soy candle is also great because many would probably find it impossible to go to your health club for some yoga or aromatherapy sessions. By giving them such things, you are giving them the chance to pamper themselves without the worries of leaving their abode. Personalized coffee mugs are always great for co-office workers. The old one can be used as a pencil or pen holders that will sit nicely at their desk instead of waiting for the mug to get broken before using your gift. But then again, why worry – it's the thought that counts, right?
