21 Things You Know If You're Actually Incredible At Giving Gifts
It's both a blessing and a curse.
Gift giving is the only competitive sport you truly care about.
You take it as a personal challenge when someone says “I don’t mind” when you ask what gifts they want.
You spend the whole year closely listening to people casually mention things they like or are interested in, and then make a mental note.
Which means by Black Friday, you already know what presents to get and you’re pretty organised.
So you literally cannot relate to people who leave Christmas shopping to the very last minute.
And you’re always surprised by the fact people do not make continuous mental notes of the hints you give them.
When somebody’s stuck on what to get a loved one, you usually have the perfect solution even if you don’t know them very well.
And you’ve often wondered how you can make a career out of this very unique skillset.
Gift-giving isn't something you reserve for special occasions, either.
Christmas is one of your favourite times of the year because it involves buying multiple presents for several people.
You’re even a total pro at gift-wrapping.
You almost definitely have a *theme* or style.
You don’t mind getting stuck in with a handmade gift instead of buying something.
You're far more generous when it comes to spending on other people than you are with yourself.
And you’ve set the bar so high for yourself that it gets more and more difficult to outdo yourself every year.
Despite winning every Secret Santa, you’re always aware that you’ll likely get some tat in exchange for your thoughtful present.
When it comes to birthdays, your loved ones get a little stressed out buying things for you, because you pushed the boat out with theirs.
Nothing gives you a greater kick than seeing the reaction on peoples’ faces when they open a gift from you and are truly delighted.
Because gift-giving is as much for you as it is for them.
