Gift giving can go one of two ways: “nailed it” or epic failure. is there really an in between?
It can be an exhilarating feeling of anticipation as you wait for the recipient to tear into that authentic gift you just know will speak to their soul. #nailedit
Contrarily, it can also manifest as a sensation of dread knowing the generic inanimate object you bought out of obligation was a complete waste of money. #epicfailure
According to Real Simple, one of the hallmarks of a thoughtful gift giver is to make it personal.
We know this. Personalizing a gift is what makes the gesture special.
However, when time is not on our side [ahem—as in we’re two weeks out from Christmas], what it comes down to is, at the very least, something they can identify with.
It’s about finding that sweet spot: a gift that’s functional and purposeful, yet aesthetically-pleasing, within a niche they’re naturally enthused by.
If you can find a piece of appealing decor that speaks their language, you’ve already satisfied all this criteria.
For those in a Christmas crunch, I’ve compiled more than 100 home decor gifts all less than $100—broken into categories to help you identify the “one-and-done” present for each enthusiast in your life. Procrastination be gone.
