Heartfelt or Expensive Gift? Which One is Favored in New Survey?
A new survey says majority of people say they would opt for a heartfelt gift over an expensive one. Actually, 62% to be exact prefer gifts with meaning over gifts that cost over $100.
Personally, I just received a bracelet from my friend Michelle for my birthday. She said it was made for me and explained what all the different beads meant. It warmed my heart so much. Just that she took the time to seek out the person who made these and designed it for me. Affordable yet very thoughtful.
Here are the five best heartfelt gifts:
- Framed photos.
- Handwritten notes.
- Photo books.
- Custom mugs or cups.
- Custom pillows or blankets.
My dad loves getting coffee mugs of him with his grand kids. We have been giving him one every year since my daughter was born. When he gets a new mug, he retires the old mug and puts it on a shelf in his office for display. He makes subtle hints about wanting updated ones from time to time. I think it’s a sweet way of brightening somebody’s day. Just think about this when you are doing your holiday shopping this holiday season.
