Gift Ideas

Did you know that the average American gives 47 gifts a year? No wonder a girl could drive herself crazy coming up with unique gift ideas for each holiday, birthday, anniversary, and special occasion. You want it to be perfect...to express to your best friend, your dad, your teacher, or your boyfriend how much you appreciate him or her.

 

But a lack of time and a lack of imagination makes the task more stressful than fun. Now that you might be earning your own money, it's payback time. Time to reciprocate and say thank you. You'll never understand the truth behind the expression, "It's better to give than to receive," until you are the bearer of the exactly right gift. Most of us know someone who, seemingly effortlessly, always matches the right gift with the right person. She usually makes it her business to keep in mind the lifestyle, hobbies, and personality of the recipient. She never falls into the trap of "gifting up," where she buys a present based on what the person might be expecting rather than what she can afford. It's a skill we should all be honing for a lifetime. Here are our gift ideas for some of the important people on your list throughout the year.

  • Finger-paints, rubber stamps, big pads of paper, markersanything that gives them the opportunity to use their imagination

 

Gift ideas for your teacher
