Something men always complain about is that females cannot be satisfied, at any rate. Especially boyfriends and partners complain that whatever they buy for their girlfriends it is not easy to please them. Husbands are at a loss as to what to buy for their wives. While a majority would appreciate jewellery, it’s not everyone’s choice. It is also a universally accepted fact that buying clothes for female friends or girlfriends without knowing about their taste 100% is a definite no-go. It is a no-go, even when you do know about their choice!

Deciding on A Budget

If this is an acquaintance of yours, the level you have to impress them is comparatively lower than when it is your girlfriend or wife. However, it is still important to know what they prefer to have. Buying jewellery maybe a bit of an expensive option if it is not a very good friend or an important occasion such as a wedding or a 21stbirthday or something similar.

Therefore, before deciding what to buy, you must decide on a budget. Obviously,jewellery maybe out of your league and clothes, as mentioned before, is not a very wise option. Therefore, you have to check other gifts which might interest the receiver. If, for example your friend loves cooking, you could give them a baking tools set. This means you know about their likes and dislikes.

Know the Receiver

Gift giving is an art. You must have an idea of what sort of things the gift receiver likes and dislikes. Gone are the times where you bought a tie for a guy and a makeup set for a girl… There are so many options in the market today. But if you don’t know what the person would prefer to have, then you get stuck.

Gift cards are a safe option. But some people prefer not to give gift cards because they think it is quite impersonal. However, in my view, rather than giving them something they don’t like or wouldn’t use, it is better to give them a gift card where they will choose what to buy.

Buying Gifts for Your Loved Ones

If the receiver of the gift is someone with whom you have a deeper bond, such as a best friend, mother or sister, best is to talk to them and get an idea of what they want. Because they are your closest friends or relatives, they will know that you are going to get something for them anyway and probably don’t want to be surprised with something that they don’t like or have no use of.

Even though giving money is looked down on in some cultures, it feels as if the person needs money at that moment it is just better to give it to them. She might be waiting to collect a certain amount and go for something she always wanted.

A gift comes from the heart. So, if you put your mind to it, remember that you will always know what to buy for that special female friend.
