Giving gifts is often better than receiving them. When you give awesome gifts that you know will be used and well-received, you feel good and you feel content. You can often get a buzz out of giving gifts, especially if the recipient talks about a gift or uses it (for a while after the occasion). When it comes to purchasing awesome gifts, you have to put in the legwork. Buying items last minute can result in gifts that are thrown away or re-gifted. This is never good for either party, and it also means that you have wasted your hard-earned money. Why not start to keep a log of all the gifts you buy and begin making notes on the recipient’s likes and dislikes? When you do this, you can succeed at gift-giving. Some of the best gifts you can give to staff members you truly value are corporate hampers.

- Think Practical and Functional
There are gifts that will get thrown in a drawer and never looked at (or touched) again. To stop this from happening to the gifts you give always try and think about practicality and functionality. Try to give a gift that solves a problem. Or, try and give a gift that is functional, perhaps something that can be used in the home or at work. When you purchase items or products that the recipient can use daily, you stand more chance of gift-giving success.
- Appeal to Their Sweet Tooth
Most people have a sweet tooth, and most people enjoy receiving chocolate and sweets. Sweet hampers are a gift that can be enjoyed by the recipient only. Some gifts you may purchase may end up being shared. However, you will find that sweet treats such as candies, chocolate, and sweets will be consumed (and enjoyed) by the recipient only. Purchasing a ready-made sweet treat hamper may be convenient for gift-giving. Or, you may look at personalizing what the recipient receives.
- Listen to What They Want
Often you will find that you buy gifts for others based on what you want rather than what they want. To stop this from happening, you need to practice your listening skills. Learn to ask open questions to establish what they want. Listen to subtle clues and hints they may drop. Also, try to keep a note about what they say or do, as this may give you inspiration for an awesome and memorable gift.
- Ask Yourself If You Would Want the Gift
It can be easy to purchase gifts on a whim or at the last minute. However, how many of these gifts end up at a thrift store or possibly even re-gifted? To ensure you get awesomeness each time, you need to think about whether or not you would like to receive the gift or not. If you think the gift you are giving is a waste of time, then find something else to buy. Going with your gut, and thinking about what you would like to receive will help you spend your money wisely.
