Irrespective of what religion you belong to or what your personal culture is, Christmas is an amazing time of year for everyone and one of the best and most beloved Christmas traditions is the tradition of Christmas shopping. Going out shopping in the middle of all the amazing Christmas decorations and Christmas carols playing at the shops and the malls is an amazing experience and in many cases, this experience is enough to help you to forget all of the stresses of real life for just a few special moments in time. The amazing thing about Christmas shopping should not be spending excessive money on the people you love but spending time and investing your time in choosing something that they will love. With gifts, whether they are Christmas gifts or birthday gifts, the notion of “it is the thought that counts” really does apply because you could spend a huge amount of money on a gift that did not take heart and time to choose or you can choose to hand make a gift that cost nothing and the latter could truly be worth a lot more.
Analysing the receivers personality
In buying the perfect gift, one of the first things you need to do is to analyse the person’s personality. Make a list off all the things they love and try to buy a gift with one or more of these things in mind. If the person loves food and drink and loves learning about new cultures, you could consider giving them a new experience by buying them a bottle of yamazaki whisky in Singapore which is unusual, unavailable everywhere and also delicious. The saying that goes “the way to a man’s heart is through is stomach” is indeed true and does not apply only to men but to women too.
You should also be able to get Japanese sake online in Singapore which is another exciting gift which is not extremely expensive but is delicious, unusual and would give the receiver an experience of a life time.
Of course, if the person you are buying the gift for does not drink, you could even consider making them something special such as a sweet potato pie or an apple pie. It is almost guaranteed that a homemade food item will be appreciated by just about anybody because everyone loves to eat and having something specially made for them will give them a sense of being special and appreciated by you. You could even consider putting together a hamper of things so that they have a whole lot of tiny gifts.
