Steps to Consider before Buying a Gift.

You should not buy what you want

Sometimes we tend to buy what we want rather than what the other person wants. We all have done this. Always remember that a gift is something that is given to somebody to provide THEM pleasure, enjoyment, delight, happiness. Effort and emotion should be invested to achieve this.

Think more about the gift you are about to gift. Consider who you are gifting and what they are interested in. Clearly determine what their desires are. Consider what the other person may be in need of but may be unable to buy for themselves.
