Find The Perfect Gift

03/06/2013 02:34PM ● By Anonymous
When it comes to being a gracious gift giver, there are a few guidelines: First, make sure it’s something that the recipient will actually use or enjoy. Tailor the gift to the person’s tastes or interests, and look for something that they’d never get for themselves—there’s nothing better than receiving a gift that feels like a luxury, or something that you wouldn’t normally treat yourself to. Here are a few gift ideas that can do double duty during this busy gift season.

High quality, local products always show how much you care. Delicious local chocolate can be a sweet reminder of home for a graduate that will be heading off to college or a luxurious Mother’s Day treat that Mom would never buy herself. An assortment of handmade chocolates would also be a welcome addition to any Easter spread.

Whether it’s a college grad settling into a new place or the home chef looking to spruce up the kitchen, quality cookware and kitchen accessories are always appreciated. Opt for colorful silicone oven mitts and bakeware for the baker in your life, beautiful table linens and towels for someone who loves to entertain, or shiny new barbecue utensils for the grill master.

Finally, consider personalization. A birthstone or first initial necklace would be a special gift for a middle school graduate. A charm bracelet is an excellent way to mark any occasion, and the recipient can enjoy adding to it. And just because it’s jewelry doesn’t mean it has to break the bank—many area jewelers have beautiful options in a variety of price ranges that anyone would enjoy for years to come.
