It doesn’t take a lot of money to make a gift special, it just requires a little extra thought. Graduation is a particularly special time and selecting a meaningful gift is of the essence.
The best rule of thumb when gifting to really make an impact is following the rules of “R:” recipient, reason, relationship.
– Being mindful of who the recipient is, their likes, dislikes and personal preferences.
– The reason for gifting is of the utmost importance when considering why and how this gift will be special as it relates to the occasion.
– Consider your relationship to the recipient, special experiences you’ve had together, inside jokes or discussions you’ve had that have sparked this gift idea.
