Tips for Gift Giving

Need a Gift? No more, Mission Impossible!

First, find a small notepad and writing instrument and keep them with you - not just at holiday time, but throughout the year.

The next time you are with anyone you may give a gift to, tell them you are taking a survey for a friend - me, Home Fragrance Harri - and ask: "What scent or aroma do you like?"

You may hear things like:  citrus, spicy, herbal, mint, lavender, vanilla, woodsy, floral, etc. Be sure to write down their answer.

People to ask might include:  your beautification gurus: hair stylist, barber and mani/pedi person; the dog walker, groomer and vet; piano teacher or tutor; the dry cleaner; your fellow carpoolers; your spiritual leader; yoga, pilates, dance, kung fu, soccer instructors and coaches; physical or massage therapist. You get the idea - anyone whose talents have enhanced your life or made it easier. Be sure to remember you family members!

To give the best gift, remember to use the note pad to write down other hints for ideas that come up in normal conversation:  favorite music group, sports team, television program, movie, museum, restaurant, etc.
