The Value of Personal Touch
When you get a gift card do you feel emotion? I am sure you appreciate the thought but it’s not as meaningful as a gift that shows personal touch and time. When I give a gift I think about the person’s interest. I don’t give a gift because I like it but because I know the receiver likes it. Think about the person you are gifting. Does that person you know drink coffee or tea, buy them a mug with a quote that fits the receiver along with coffee or tea? Do they have a favorite color? Buy a nice scarf in that color or even a pair of socks and write a note saying how much you know it’s their favorite color. Does that person like to read and write. Buy a beautiful journal or a pen that is special. They will always think of you when they write. What about a foodie, buy that person some spices and sauces. Package it up nicely, put a nice ribbon around it and write a thoughtful note saying how much you appreciate them as a friend or colleague. Our company has gotten feedback that the gifts created and given brought tears to their clients eyes. Giving is often better than receiving.
