How to Give Gifts People Actually Want This Holiday Season

When it comes to giving gifts, we’ve all heard it’s the thought that counts.????But most of us don’t think long-term.????That’s why we’re so bad at giving gifts people really want.????Don’t focus on how excited the person will be when they see it.????Instead, focus on how valuable the gift will be over time.????That’s according to a study from researchers at Indiana University and Carnegie Mellon University.????A common mistake is that gift-givers try to show off with something expensive.????They buy gifts that will be fun in the moment of exchange but they miscalculate how people just want practical gifts.????Recipients would be happier with tickets to a concert than a shiny new tablet, according to a 2014 study published in the journal Advances in Consumer Research.????To be a better gift-giver, think long-term, give experiential gifts, stick to people’s lists, and focus on versatility.????And always include a gift receipt just in case!
