Gifting is an age old tradition which can signify utter thoughtfulness, bringing an immediate smile to the receiver’s lips. A gift is the perfect way to express feelings and emotions, which are often significant of an occasion-such are weddings, birthdays, anniversaries etc or simply to communicate emotions such as thankfulness, affection, gratitude or solidarity.
Whatever be the occasion, choosing the appropriate gift is of utmost importance. One should always keep in mind the receiver’s tastes and choices, their likes and dislikes. With the variety of options available in today’s world, it has surely become quite a mind-boggling task. The first thing to keep in mind if you are contemplating on presenting someone with a gift is that the value of any gift should not be measured based on its price tag alone. A famous saying says, “It’s the thought that matters”. This however, should not lead you into believing that anything is worthy of gifting, as a gift that is not useful to the one who receives it, is as good as no gift at all.
Therefore, one should keep in mind that it is not the monetary value of the gift, but how much the person would like and appreciate it that matters. Be it an ailing grandparent, a distant aunt or a childhood friend, a gift that is personal and thoughtful is bound to win many hearts.
Here are some great gifting ideas that we assure all your loved ones will adore-
There is something so classic and elegant about flowers, that no matter what the occasion, they never go wrong. Flowers can be a perfect present or accompany another present(s) for any special occasion- be it an anniversary, birthday, wedding or any other ceremony. However, be careful as to what kind of flowers you’re gifting to whom. For instance, you wouldn’t want to present your retired Biology professors with a bunch of red roses! It also helps to find out what kind of flowers the receiver prefers- some people might love orchids, while others might have a fancy for lilies. Needless to say, you can never go wrong with flowers as a gift.
This one is mostly for the ladies- it’s no secret that women love to shop. And what would be a better a gift than giving them a voucher from their favorite store that enables them to buy whatever they want? From clothes, to accessories to home decor, this is one of the best and most useful gifts you can give to a person. Likewise, if your gift receiver is a man, and he isn’t really into shopping, then restaurant vouchers make for fantastic gifts. Just have some sort of idea about their favorite restaurants and the kind of cuisine they enjoy, and you’ll be guaranteed that they will be smiling from ear to ear.
Everyone loves a little pooch. These furry little creatures make for perfect present as they are probably the most thoughtful thing a person can gift someone- a companion for life, like a new family member. However, be warned that not everyone likes animals and some even might be allergic to their fur. You should also make sure that the person you plan to gift this pet to will be capable of taking care of the animal- for it is not something one can use and throw away. All these complications aside, any animal lover would squeal with joy on being presented with a tiny, furry friend on their special occasion.
Nobody can go wrong with a perfume for a present, as there are very few who would dislike smelling pleasant. Perfumes make for classy presents for both men and women, and there is a huge variety of scents to choose from- be it floral, musky, fruity or spicy. While picking a perfume, make sure to try it on your wrist instead of on paper, and then come back later to buy it, because perfumes change their scent overtime. However, keep in mind to never present someone with a cheap deodorant as it sends off the message that they have bad body odor.
It is known that there is no such thing as having enough gadgets. As long as you’re giving them something they don’t already own, gadgets make for fantastic presents. In today’s fast-paced world, everybody needs and loves technology. Depending on how much money you are willing to shell out, you can choose anything from a camera to a phone to a tablet to a laptop. The possibilities are endless, and the receiver will never be left disappointed!
There is no better gift than something that stimulates the mind and soul. Art is not restricted to painting and wall hangings as such, it could even be a vintage vinyl record or a classic book of poetry. Try to find out what kind of tastes your present receiver has, so that you could pick up something similar to what they enjoy, or perhaps enlighten them with something they have never heard of. Both will be much appreciated.
You might think this one is restricted to women, but think again- of course all women love sparkly, shiny stones, but men too can be gifted an elegant pair of cuff links to begin with. Besides that, jewellery is also considered a valuable investment, and hence a very wise choice for a present.
Personalized Do-It-Yourself Gifts:
Everyone loves something handmade, as it feels more personal and hence holds a higher sentimental value. Under this category you can literally do anything- as long as you have the creativity to do it! Personalized t-shirts? Handmade jewellery? Origami furniture? Self-made painting? As long as you –excuse the cliché- make it with love, you can pretty much make anything, and not only will your loved one enjoy the present, but they will also feel extra-special!
Finally, whatever gift you decide to choose for your dear ones- never forget to wrap! It’s not just five-year-olds who enjoy tearing off the wrapping paper in excitement. Happy gifting!

The meaning of being successful in life is that you accomplish your major goals in life to such an extent that you become content and satisfied with your life. A wise man once said ‘if you don’t know how to turn the knob of a door then you will never manage to open it.’ This quote has a deep yet simple meaning. The reason the most of the people don’t succeed in achieving their life goals is that they have incorrect and false beliefs about success that prevents them from taking the right path and making the correct choices.
Here are the biggest secrets to success that can enable any person to triumph his goals and to be successful:
Plan and define success for yourself
Describe the true meaning of success as you see it. You cannot gain success if you fail to understand what it means for you. Every person has a different definition of success and using some other person’s standard for success is like eating another person’s lunch and expecting to love it. Set clear goals and be pragmatic. Your benchmarks should be quantifiable, or else you could spend your entire life chasing after a vague goal. You could be rich or powerful, or you could change the world. Just try to paint as clear of a picture in your mind as possible. Just having a gist of what you want in life does not mean it is sure to happen, but you will never get anywhere unless you have an idea of where you’re trying to reach and what you are trying to accomplish. To be a successful person you need to believe in yourself and your missions. Figuring out what you love to do will give you motivation along the way. Discover the things you love to do, the things that give you satisfaction. Once you discover what your passion is, use this information to find the purpose and goals of your life.
Stay Focused and Patient
Accomplish your minor targets, focusing on your major goal. Do not at any cost find reasons to dawdle your work. Leap head-first into the task at hand and start chipping away. Break your main goal into small steps. Focus on streamlining your vision and then focus on getting funding and then move onto building an example. If you have the image of achieving your goal step by step, accomplishing them becomes simpler and less intimidating to execute. Stay away from any sorts of distractions as much as possible. Distractions are the spice of life or the forbidden fruit, depending on your perception. It is almost impossible to be 100% focused on your task 100% of the time. Distractions are fine in low doses. However when your goals start taking a backseat to trivial distractions, then it becomes a problem. At such times, it is the best to banish them. One must remember success requires time and patience. Success rarely happens overnight and that’s why you must be prepared to go through a long journey if you want to be successful. If your success gets postponed there is no need to panic because it is a natural thing. Be psychologically prepared for what you would have to face on the way up. The world is going to criticize you, make fun of you, put you down, shake your belief in yourself and reject you. If you want to be successful then you must be prepared psychologically for all this so that you don’t breakdown
Never Give Up
Remember to be determined. You are going to fail at some point. What will define you is how you pick yourself up after you have had a fall. Never ever give up. Don’t be a quitter. Babies learn how to hold objects correctly by first holding them in all incorrect ways. Every time the baby holds the object it falls off its hands and so it learns something new about the correct way to hold it. The same goes for success. If you want to be successful then you must remember that you will keep failing until you discover what is correct. Don’t be afraid to take risks and be bold. Successful people think and act big. Don’t let failure define you. If you want to be successful, be a leader not a follower. Leading the way can be dangerous and scary. However, you must gather up the courage to do something different. This is the key to real success.

There is a way a path a formula, and is simple . When you are working, you must constantly have in mind that at the end you will work less and earn more.
In simpler words Working 8 hours a day and produces X result (X is the amount of money you are getting now.)
Were most people fail to achieve success here : they try to earn X+Y without finding a way to work less first . They must find a way to get to Y before the get to X (Y is the amount of money you want to get.)
Before even thinking about or working towards getting the extra Y result, you should find ways to work less than 8 hours first and still get X result.
- Work 8 hours and get X result .
- Find ways to work 6 hours and still get X result.
- Work 8 hours again but get X+Y result
Once you do that your next target is to find ways to achieve X+Y result by working only 6 hours instead of 8. Once you find that, only then you can thing about getting Z result. (Z result can be any amount of extra money you can have.)
So repeat the whole process:
- Work 8 hours a day and get X+Y result.
- Find ways to work 6 hours and still get X+Y result .
- Work 8 hours again but get X+Y+Z result.
Keep on repeating this process until you get the maximum results you can get.(This coult be A+B+C+X+Y+Z or whatever you dare to dream and commit to.) At some point , you will reach the optimum results where you can hardly earn more by working 8 hours a day.
