Did you know that men are more likely to wait until the last minute to buy a gift than women?
"So what's new"! I hear you cry...
Gifting is a universal ritual that is followed by everyone of every age but still people are unaware of many interesting facts about it.
Gifting is an amazing way of confessing love and affection and showing your true feelings to your nearest and dearest.
Here are some amazing facts about gifts and the act of gifting.
Gifting is not a matter of how much money you spend on someone.
The idea behind gifting is not just about how much money you spend or to show off.
Gifting is a way of expressing heartfelt feelings, making someone feel loved, or surprising someone dear to you. The recipient feels cared for and it's a kind gesture we make for those we care about.
Women are better at selecting gifts than men
Sorry to dissapoint guys but it's a proven fact. Women find it much easier to figure out just what that perfect gift might be for their nearest and dearest, irrespective of age or gender whilst taking into account their likes and dislikes. It's not unusual to see men of all ages becoming baffled when it comes to gifting. Mmmm! I wonder, could that have something to do with leaving it to the last minute?
Personalised gifts are the most popular choice nowadays
The range of personalised gifts today is extremely vast. These days the world's your oyster with such wonderful gifts to choose from, such as Personalised Pebble art, Word art, mugs, drinks bottles, cups and the list goes on. As the buyer is able to customise these gifts as they wish by adding text, quotes and or photographs, personalised gifts are considered to be the most affectionate gift. Personalising shows the recipient you really thought before you bought.
Men prefer useful gifts rather than romantic or captivating
Unlike women who may prefer something a little more romantic, of course there are men who will too, but generally they tend to be quite practical by nature. Men tend to prefer something practical that they can put to good use, so when trying to impress him consider buying something useful.
