My attempt to make you smile
before getting to today’s gift ideas
Hi gift-givers! This newsletter allows you to confidently say “challenge accepted” to someone on your gift list who tells you that they “have everything” or that they “can get themselves anything they want”.
One-ish more thing(s)
before today’s gift ideas
A competition no one actually wants to win…
Reply to this email with the story of the worst gift you’ve ever received or witnessed. Don’t worry, the source of the stories will remain anonymous!
I’d like to make a BGC holiday tradition of having a competition for identifying which subscriber has the worst gift story. Head to under the P.S. section to read the “winner” of last year’s BGC worst gift competition.
Estimated read time: 2 minutes & 25 seconds
Gift idea time! Here’s a story of a
great gift to spark your creativity
The “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" Gift:
Why this gift is great
Personalized, thoughtful, exciting
A great gift for those who “have everything” or “can buy it for themselves”
Studies note that gift-recipients, in general, are happier receiving experiential gifts than material ones (Goodman & Lim, 2014)
Brainstorming your version of this gift
Not just a gift for significant others! Consider this gift for:
Don’t keep them entirely in the dark! Work with your recipient to set aside a date and provide some expectations for timeframe, attire, etc.
Set yourself up for future gifts – during the adventure, look for keepsake opportunities to give as future gifts. See 🎁How to milk a dinner date and 🎁Your ticket to a thoughtful and budget-friendly gift
Give as an IOU gift – this gift doesn’t need to happen on the actual day of the gifting event (see 🎁The “something to look forward to IOU" Gift). Hello awesome last-minute gift!
Making this gift happen
