Unless you’re some sort of sociopath, feeling some anxiety over gift-giving is pretty normal. After all, your choice of gift and the manner with which you give it says a lot about you.
Why shouldn’t you be anxious?
Thankfully, gift-giving is normally only a big problem if you lack empathy, or really don’t know the other person very well.
And if you do end up giving a dud, you probably shouldn’t worry. Luckily, only a real jerk would seriously complain about a gift given with good intentions.
This season we’ll tell you which ones you should never give – unless you’re sure the recipient will get a kick out of it. Then again, you probably still shouldn’t.
If you do plan to re-gift, be considerate- and NEVER mention it’s a re-gift. Saying it out loud (unless asked) is just tacky.
The key is to basically exercise proper judgment. Hard, I know. If you feel like being a jerk, try not to be one just this once.
There are dozens of other inappropriate situation-specific gifts, and we’d like to hear your experiences and ideas! Happy Holidays!
