The Art of Intentional Gift Giving: Thoughtful Tips and Ideas

Years ago I read a book that changed my life. The book is titled The Five Love Languages: The Secret To Love That Lasts, written in 1992 by author Gary Chapman. It explores the concept of love languages and how understanding others' love languages can improve relationships and strengthen emotional connections. One of the love languages is Gift Giving. I began a quest to better understand the Art of Intentional Gift Giving. Whether it be business, social, personal or general contact with another, the scenario is the same. If you don't have this God-given gift, you can learn it!

Begin by paying attention, listen and notice others' interests, favorite colors, their jewelry, lifestyle, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Think beyond material gifts and consider experiential gifts, such as tickets to a concert, museum, a spa day or a cooking class. Set a budget and stick to it. Remember, it's the thought and effort behind the gift that matters the most, not the price tag. Pay attention to timing by considering the occasion, anniversary, birthday or holidays which can make it even more meaningful. Personally, I enjoy giving gifts "just because" and have found those times to be the most enjoyable. When clients come to me wanting to buy jewelry, I consider trends in the industry in addition to asking these specific questions, along with their size, height, body type, skin tone, lifestyle and budget. Jewelry is a lovely gift and many don't realize there are ideas to consider.  We enjoy helping others view how taking the time to select the right piece of jewlery can be more meaningful and something they will truly wear throughout the year.
