Good Year-Around Gift-Giving Advice


Gift When I was in my early 20s and at my first real job, I wanted to buy a Christmas gift for my boss. She was a classy, conservative older woman. When I asked my mom for ideas, she gave me great advice that I continue to use to this day:  Buy a high-end “smaller” item instead of a less expensive “bigger” item.

A good analogy would be to buy someone one or two top-of-the-line individual Godiva chocolates instead of a big box of Russell Stover candy.

The gift is a treat because it’s something the person will enjoy but probably wouldn’t have bought for herself.

When I’m torn between two presents, remembering this gift-giving advice always helps me make the right decision.
