Have you ever been in a situation where you’re obligated to give a gift to someone you don’t know very well?
After painstakingly searching everywhere, you still have no idea what to get. Finally, you settle on a generic gift. A gift that isn’t particularly useful or meaningful to the person, but one that you know won’t be taken the wrong way.
And when you finally give the gift, the recipient politely thanks you. Yet both of you know that this gift is definitely not going to be useful. It is simply a gift of obligation, for formality’s sake.
Instead, how about giving a gift that will get used again and again? One that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also practical?
