Whoever Called It The “Simple Art Of Gifting” Was Lying
Authored by: Monica  

It is that time of the year again and you know that you could have a very tough time trying to find out the perfect gift for the love of your life. Regardless of what you’re looking for, you know that you can get kicked rather badly if you gift her something that is not going to result in her breaking out in squeals of delight.

So you go online shopping, and look through gift options, Google the latest results for “gifts to make your lady love squeal”, ask your friends, your family members, perhaps even your boss in a desperate bid to come across as the “perfect gift giver”. A little later, too many people start commenting about exactly how frazzled you are looking and you wonder what you should be telling them!

And then you think, “Ah, chocolate, cannot possibly go wrong with that”. But then, she is on a diet. And even Goddess Ixcacao cannot protect you from your lady love’s wrath.

“Jewelry! Which girl does not like bling eh?” But, if you buy earrings that are heavier than her head, or worse a bracelet that resembles (even vaguely) something that somebody else has already worn a couple of years ago- then you are going to be iced in a big way!

Okay then – how about a wristwatch? Sounds like a good idea. But please do not add a card that says “Happy anniversary my love, here is hoping you will be on time at least now”. And please, you can never make the mistake of getting her something that does not accessorize perfectly with her latest cocktail dress. So maybe two different watches then? How about the Michael Kors Rock Top MK5448 and DKNY Bangle NY4662?

A whispered aside here – (in proper sotto voce) – she can Google the cash you have doled out on the watch! Speaking of cocktail dress, why not gift her clothes? You will then have to get the size guide down to the perfect art that it is. She will tell you that she is a dress size 6 but heaven help you if you go and actually buy her a great dress in size 6 because she is actually just a teensy bit over this number.

Perhaps then, regardless of the gift you buy, you should check for the exchange and return policy of the store. And also keep hold of the bills in case she wants to say “Honey, I love this wonderful, fabulous, super, thoughtful and amazing gift, but do they have it in another color?” Such is the seriousness of gift giving, that Sheldon Cooper, of the Big Bang Theory fame, puts it not so succinctly, “The essence of the custom is that I now have to go out and purchase for you a gift of commensurate value and representing the same perceived level of friendship as that represented by the gift you’ve given me. It’s no wonder suicide rates skyrocket this time of year.”

But contemplating such extreme measures is not what we are advocating here. The trick is to reach the Carnegie hall of gift giving – keep practicing!
