Buy a Gift with Confidence

I love buying gifts, especially for my family. Giving gifts isn’t always easy peasy, especially when you have people who say to you ‘don’t bother with a birthday present for me, because you can’t give me what I really want’. Some people will say ‘cheek – they should be grateful for any gift’, but on second thoughts I’ve come to see their line of thinking. What is the point in giving someone a gift that is actually useless to them? This line of thought has led me to start giving more serious thought to the gifts I give. Yes, books are still a wonderful gift to the serious reader. I give beautiful bird feeders and bird baths to my pet loving friends and a health spa voucher to a friend of mine who I know could use some TLC – gifts that can truly benefit someone.

the right gifts

I’m not saying there aren’t some useful traditional gifts out there. We lead such hectic lifestyles, and for soothing sore muscles, there are some amazing bath-balls to place in your tub and which release soothing, moisturizing and aromatic ingredients into the water to soothe and relax you and enhance this part of your body care. If you’re battling with gift ideas, let met know as I believe I’ve got a gift for choosing purposeful, interesting, pleasurable gifts for the important ones in your life.

Gift a Kindle to Your Kids

Kindle paperwhite a great present for your kids

Reading habits are really going away with the google syndrome coming in. In our days answers needed to be searched in libraries and reading was a habit. At my home my Father used to subscribe 5 magazines 2 each of science and literature and one children magazine. But now in the digital age the publications are closing. The Marvel comics are gone and replaced by movies.

Movies hardly teach anything. So the matter of fact is reading habit has been hit hard by digitization. But among the evils the messiah of reading has also emerged. The amazing Kindle is an innovation which will indeed bring back reading habit into kids. I started off at my own home by gifting Kindle to my 8-year-old daughter. She was thrilled to have her own Kindle and the immediate effect was increase in reading. My daughter is anyways inclined to reading. This has been the result of story books we used to buy for her instead of toys from an early age. Anyways coming to the point Kindle is indeed the gift for all kids 8 and above. You have to buy the gadget once and then fill it with books your kids want. The Kindle version of books are inexpensive and your kid will be flaunting his new gadget to his friends. Reading comes as a welcome benefit.
