Giving Fragrances and perfume is a personal gift that is warmly received if the right scent is chosen. Women wear fragrances because it affects mood, attraction, desirability, and because it elicits fond memories or out of gratitude for the person who gave it to them. It’s not just the scent, certain smells create psychological reactions. Young women and women in their twenties are inspired more by the media, singers, movie stars and their friends. Women in their 30s follow all the patterns and trends. By or after 40, women wear fragrances simply because they love the scent. Around 60 and after, they are more attentive to what other people like for them, and they will wear a fragrance because someone special gave it to them or because their daughter, spouse or friends say they like it. Believing that certain fragrances make us more attractive, sexy or desirable, it will have just that effect for us as we see that in ourselves. Scents bring us back to people. That is why many people wear fragrances similar to their mothers. Wearing perfume to lead others to remember you is believed and practiced by many. Pleasant smells seem to lead people to be nicer, whether its perfume or food smells. Click here to go to the Fragrances & Perfumes gift ideas page to see 100’s of gifts.

Do this Right Now:
Open your calendar on your phone or get your scheduling calendar. If you don’t have one yet, get on. Everyone needs memory joggers and we have all been caught short on time and money. This only takes about ½ hour right now and you’ll very thankful all year. Place personal gift dates and a 3 week reminder dates before the actual date in your calendar for the next year, (set it as a recurring appointment) on your calendar. After these dates are on your calendar, you are going to jot down ideas, notes or tips on those dates. Even the hardest to buy for person, always points out something they like during the year. Plus, this will give you time to ask people you don’t quite as well, what their interests are in your daily conversations with them. You’ll also be able to see how much you need to budget during the year, and in specific months, for the amount you will be budgeting.
Main Dates to set:
Wife’s Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Children’s Birthdays, Grandchildren’s birthdays, other birthdays that you celebrate and go to parties, Grandparent’s day, parent or children’s anniversaries if you celebrate them, Friends birthdays.
For work set these days:
Boss’ birthday, your assistant’s birthday, Professional Assistants Day, and any other close co-workers that you will be buying gifts for.
Think about any occasions that may be occurring in the next year:
Birthday’s of your children’s friends, Graduations, Weddings, Bridal showers, Baby births, Retirements, farewell to college, New home purchase, religious ceremonies, and national celebration days for professions like “National Nurses Week.”
We all know when Christmas, Easter and Back-to-School is, so we can make a plan in advance to shop throughout the year.
Pick up small gifts for unexpected birthdays, get well, someone gives you a gift and you want to reciprocate, thank you gifts, and thank you for your services (gifts for your the help).

Choosing the Right Gift for Him
Men love getting gifts that relate to their hobbies, sports, leisure activities or ones that showcase their talents, skills or image such as Grilling, Team Sports or guys stuff that can enhance areas that they hang out. They like things they can use or put to good use such as gadgets, tools, and electronics. They want to show off their gifts. Sorry ladies but framed pictures and things like that, put them up as a gift to yourself, but guys just don’t have the same emotional reactions we do, even though they can be sentimental. If it moves, makes the right noise, has power, can be tweaked for performance, can go faster, harder or longer then you’re in the right ball game. Guy artwork for his relaxing areas, man cave, garage or shop is ok.

How Many Gifts a Year do You Give?
That’s a lot of Gifts!! No wonder we have a hard time keeping up. I’ll bet once you start thinking about it and planning ahead that you’ll have several more items to add to your calendar dates that require gift purchasing.
Don’t reinvent the gift giving wheel. Old time favorite will still work, and when you come across something unique and different, buy several and put it in your gift stock. If you know what a person likes or their hobbies are, stick with that for multiple years. Usually you can come up with gifts related to their hobbies and they will love and appreciate them.
Jot Down Ideas and Keep an Eye Out Throughout the Year.
Jot down ideas or notes through the year as they mention things that they like or would love to have. Many people will drop hints because they do not know how to just come out and tell someone directly what they really want. But, they will get their feeling hurt later because you are suppose to pay attention and know these things. It’s human nature for people to think they made something clearer than they did at the time. Watch for their clues or hints, however subtle they are. We’ll tell you below how to illicit more information from them or ask them to provide you with the details of what they want. You’d be surprise as how well people will find the gift and tell you where to get it.
Shopping through the Year
If you know your mother-in-law loves lighthouses and that’s the theme in her guest bathroom, then when you are on vacation at the coast in June, you could pick up that blown glass lighthouse in a specialty gift store for her birthday in February. Note this on your calendar. Set aside a storage space in a closet or garage that you carefully pack and place in boxes the gifts you are holding for later. Put a note on the outside of the gift who it is for and what the occasion is. This allows you to find unique items, get them when you see them, and find the best price. You don’t have to buy something, or anything, just to get them a gift. This type of shopping removes the stress, urgency and feelings of obligation. It adds an element of fun and pleasure for knowing you have something special waiting for their special day. This changes everything. Getting a great gift for someone is fun and rewarding, the way it should be.
Asking Family or Friends to Find Out
Remember, unless they are able to casually find out what a person wants, along with the specifics, their idea of what was said or what may be like will be altered by their own style and likes. If you are going to ask for help, send a couple of options with them to see if they can find out what is preferred or ask enough questions to see how much the person you are buying for express their desire for the item they are telling you they would like.
What are their Hobbies, Sports, or Leisure Activities?
Talk with them about their Hobbies, Sports, Collectibles or Leisure Activities. You’ll learn everything you need to know about something they would love to have
Accessories that Compliment what they already have
Gifts that will have special meaning are ones that go with something that they already enjoy. If they enjoy outdoor entertaining, then shop for Grilling BBQ and Outdoor Living Entertaining gifts. This will fit into a category that you know they already love. If she loves Iris Flowers and you can see that they are not good at getting artwork on the wall, you can find beautiful Irises Photography printed on Art Paper Prints or Canvas prints.
A Get Your Gift Greeting Cards in advance.
Buy your Gift Greeting Cards in advance for the year. Baslee Troutman has a wonderful store on Zazzle that allow you to customize and personalize cards. You can add your own text or leave them blank to print or write in later. You’ll find custom greeting cards, color envelopes, cards seals and custom floral nature postage stamps for all occasions and seasons.
Buy what you are Comfortable with & can Afford
Gift buying can feel difficult at times. Some people love buying gifts and it comes natural, and others absolutely hate it as they look and look as the stress builds. We have all struggled with our assumption about how the recipient will respond and how much to spend. We don’t want to risk sending the wrong message about how much we care and what our feeling are.
Try not raising the bar too high because of assumed expectations. Give what feel comfortable to you and you can afford. Try very hard not to overspend to ‘gift-higher’ than what’s necessary because you think the hostess or recipient has high expectations. Give what you think they will enjoy, not to match what they have brought or the income level they have.
Do you have to Reciprocate when someone gives you a gift and you didn’t intend to get them one?
Gift giving isn’t always an even exchange, nor does it need to be matched. If you do not have a gift to reciprocate or don’t intend to give them one in exchange, then be prepared to graciously make them feel special for having been so generous and thoughtful. Just say thank you in person and send them a thank you note within a few weeks.
Reasonable Hostess gifts
Give the Party Hostess Chocolate Gifts
Reasonable Hostess gifts can include a box of truffles, a dessert from a bakery, a bottle of wine from a local winery, or something as personal as specialty insulated oven mitts that are designed to be given as a stand-alone gift. It doesn’t matter what you paid for them.
