If you are unsure on what ways to fulfill a gift guide filled with fashion and fun try these tips below.
Tip 1: Secret Santa No Secret Sizes
Conduct a secretive way to find out what sizes to purchase for your Secret Santa. Suggest that everyone drop their sizes, likes, dislikes, and ideal gifts in the group chat. Create a standard list and ask every person to include their sizes and favorites. Also be open to ask close family and friends if they don’t share any specifics.
Tip 2: Purchase on The Safe Side
Buy two different sizes if you are unsure it will fit the person exactly. Return the other one at a later date or re-gift to someone who loved the gift you gave.
Tip 3: Be Intentional
Purchase items that you know will be of need or want for the person receiving the gift. Take “I” out of the picture and find items they will love. Remember their style, likes, and dislikes, and shop away.3
