During this gift-giving season, there’s a particular subset of gift which require a substantial amount of creativity. Which is? Giving the appropriate gift to your host/hostess.
Many of us spend a meal or two by friends or family and would like very much to give the perfect gift. Since asking them is often not an option, we are left to guess what they like and what they don’t.
Allow me to make a suggestion: ask them in a way that they won’t know that you are asking. How? By inquiring, in the course of a conversation, what pattern of china and crystal they have. For the intrepid ones among you, you can even try to ferret out which piece they have been dying to add to their collection. Isn’t this a remarkable way to buy for your host what you KNOW they want and love, since they’ve bought it themselves?
Experience has shown us that a gift such as this is greatly appreciated and intrinsically communicates the time and thought you’ve put into purchasing their gift.
As usual, we’re here to help. This series will choose great “gift” pieces from some of the finest brands and patterns ever made, to help you in your search for the gift that will be remembered.
