Avoid giving bad gifts this season

10. Thoughtless Gifts

I have a friend who buys a ton of gifts at the beginning of the season because he thinks they are cool or neat. He figures he will match the gift to the person as the season rolls in. Obviously it should be the other way around – you think first about the type of person your cool friend is, consider their particularities and then try to find a gift to match.Examples of Thoughtless Gifts:

  • Giving a country CD to a person who loves the blues.
  • Giving alcohol to someone who doesn’t drink.
  • Giving perfume to someone who is allergic to perfume.
  • Giving coffee to someone who never drinks coffee.
