Here are a few tips that can help you choose a great gift. First, make sure you have a budget. Do not spend too much on a gift. You don’t want someone to feel bad because they can’t afford to give you a similar priced gift. If you know that the person won’t mind if you buy them something expensive, then go right ahead and buy it for them. You also don’t want to blow your budget on something too expensive for your household budget. You want to still be able to pay your bills comfortably. The second tip is to make a list of hobbies enjoyed by your friends and family and be sure to jot down their clothing sizes as well (tell them why you need their clothing size or you might come off as being rude for asking). It is easier to shop for someone when you know what they enjoy and it is much easier to buy someone clothes when you know what size they wear. Be sure to get a gift receipt if you purchase the item in a retail store. This way, your friend can easily return the gift if they do not like it. Some people just don’t have a sense of humor and won’t appreciate funny Hanukkah gifts.
