What gift should we give for our child's birthday or for our friend's wedding? Sometimes we spend days trying to figure out the ideal gift but cannot come up with an answer. A gift need not be expensive. It is the thought behind it that matters. It is a gesture of loving, of caring, of showing appreciation. Suppose you want to give a gift to your boss, the ideal gift would be a classy pen. On the other hand books are the ideal gift for children according to their age group.Gifting apparel to children is a bit risky as it could be either too small or too big for the child especially if you have not seen the child for a long time. Children grow up really fast. Many people gift household items for weddings. Here you have to be very careful as there are chances that the couple could receive a handful of the same items. A better choice would be a Gift Cheque or even cash in a sealed envelope. Finally invitations mentioning no presents should always be honoured. If you still wouldn't like to attend the wedding empty handed, you can say it with flowers.
