It makes it unique when you choose a suitable and individually chosen gift for that certain person you wanna give a gift. This gift you present to a family, friend or an acquaintance is well likely chosen exclusively for that person.
But, there are items or things that are not supposed to give. You, mind you will not approve it, too.
Let us start…
# 1 Never recycle your gift. Never re-gift it.
Doing this is an expression of not being appreciative or not acknowledging the goodness of the gift-giver. It is understandable that you may have this item already or you just hated it. Remember, the gift that was handed to you was specifically picked for you.
Thinking about it is impolite to re-gift.
I once received a re-gift item and I felt that the gift-giver is just doing it because she/he has to. You do not need to give gifts if you are obligated. People give gifts because they want to and they desired to give.
# 2 Never give gifts when you are having ambivalent emotions.
Hold on, hesitant to hand out a gift because of the known or unknown reason is a moment that you will regret after.
Though at times, gifting is done through reciprocity.
Find peace in your inner self. Then, determine what the best gift to give to that person you are planning to or not to hand a gift.
Understanding many reasons for your momentarily gift ideas will lead you to the right decision.
# 3 Never hand a damaged good or a gift that requires obvious fix/repair.
Gifting goods that obviously need repair can be damaging as well to your reputation. May it be known by yourself or not has the same outcome.
Including a gift receipt with the gift item is excellent. The receiver can always go back to the store/shop to have an exchange or switch to other goods.
# 4 Never hand a used item, goods or gift unless that item has a sentimental value for that person.
Yes, some people do this. The giver gifts a family or close friend something that is old but carries a meaningful and memorable event to the life of that certain person.
Though gifting is an act of giving, love or sharing, put yourself as a receiver & how will you feel to have handed a used gift.
Used gifts are not gifts at all. The giver is branded as being thrifty or whatever you call it.
# 5 It is called an unwanted gift.
These are gifts that the receiver does not need or does not want it ever.
The receiver may put it in the garbage, donate to charity, give it away and some may re-gift it (no, no, no).
Regifting is # 1 not to give as a gift.
Gifts are willingly given to someone without expecting a payment or return. A gift is given to provide happiness, excitement or a smile to that person. Though at times, a gift is reciprocated.
Gifting is done to because you enjoy to give, share your wealth, spread love, establish friendship and, it is a tradition or custom.
You, the giver have the intent of giving.
