What makes a good gift?

When we look for gifts, there is a tingling sensation at the back of our minds, making us think if the receiver of our gift will understand a deeper meaning behind it.

Meaningful presents are a wonderful move at any occasion. It shows you did put in the effort not just to buy a gift but to think it through.
This is the essence behind good corporate gifts. They convey a message with no words.
It is this kind of deeper, speechless communication that a lot of people crave in our days. It almost shows intimacy that doesn't require spoken or written explanations.
So how do you go about selecting a meaningful gift? In this article we try to help you set your priorities and choose wisely.

1. Know who you buy for!

Say the names of the people you are planning to buy gifts for. Mentally get into an image of them receiving it.

2. What do you want the receiver to feel?

There are many emotions a gift can trigger. Some are general, for example a luxury gift will make a person feel happy. Some are more personal and that's what we aim to achieve here. What memories would such a gift trigger? Which words will come to the receiver's mind? what images will he or she form?

3. Choose a piece with a story.

Our minds can quickly understand correlations, but struggle to get deep meanings in an instant. For presents it's better to convey a meaning with a metaphor. For example a craft product will show meanings of mastering an art, perseverance, strong character etc. Choosing a gift that ahs a strong story behind it will reinforce the meaning you wish to convey.
