There are certain factors that you must consider when you plan to surprise someone with a gift.

You must know as well what that person appreciate to receive. One thing you must not forget about is the signification of the gift. A present usually reflects the feeling you have towards a person and also it has its own signification related to this specific aspect.
Let’s start with jewelries. It is very important when and to whom you buy such valuable things. You should not buy an expensive jewelry for someone with whom you just start dating. These expensive gifts are for long and serious relationships only. You can even offend someone if you offer such a gift too soon.
When it comes about perfume, things are difficult here as well. There are two reasons why you may buy such a thing. You may not be too interested or too busy to search for something and this is the safest and fastest alternative, or you want to send a subtle message. It is very important to know exactly her or his preferences regarding the perfume fragrance. You must consider as well that a perfume can be an even more intimate gift than jewelry. It can leave a good impression or it can leave no impression at all. This is the type of gift you can offer to a person with which you may not have any type of relationship or to a very close person but in this situation, the choice must be made with allot of attention.
When you think about offering clothes as a gift, you must be aware that such gifts must be given to close persons, family members etc. It is also quite personal such type of gift, so you must know exactly that person’ preferences before choosing. Also the size of that person is very important. It is a gift that reflects your interest in how that person shows herself or himself in the outside world.
These days, thanks to the technology development a very nice and popular type of gift is a gadget. Gadgets are rarely cheep. This is the reason why the person who receives such a gift will be impressed especially if it is a new arrival on the market. As you can image these types of gifts are also proper for close people. You will not offer the last model of iPhone to your work colleague. Gadgets can captivate the attention of all of us. If you are attracted by your own gift you should repress you desire of using it before the owner does. In fact, you should not use it at all. The main solution is to buy one for you as well.
Many people may have trouble to decide what gift to buy for a person who has everything. Something too small and insignificant will not impress that person at all and something too expensive, that you might not even afford, may be bad choice.
Why? Because that person may already have it. In this situation and if you make some researches about when and where that person may want to spend his vacation will be a travel ticket, usually for two. This type of gift is very appropriate for a person not too close for you, or for your life partner as well. A dream vacation for your love it will be a great gift especially if you don’t do it too often.
Household appliances can be a good idea only as wedding gift or if your friend bought a new house and he might need it. A woman will see such gifts offered on her birthday as a small offense. It is one time per year when they want something especially for them and not for the entire house. It is not the birthday of the house after all. You must consider this no matter how many times you have heard your mother, praising the new pan saw on TV.
Gift cards can also be a good choice but they do not involve any type of emotions. It is a gift that, even the person to whom you will offer it, will know that you gave it because you didn’t waste any time for her or him. It will be appreciated because like that, they can buy what they want but you will not leave any impression with it. A spa voucher or a beauty salon voucher can be something else. Any person, man or woman, dreams about a few hours just for themselves and where can they get it better than at a SPA or at a Beauty Salon.
If you are thinking about food and drinks, you must pick wisely. You cannot buy common foods and drinks. It must be something special, classic and something that you cannot find all over the place. It may be something that will remain untouched so the new owner can preserved it for special moments.
It is very pleasant for us after years passes by to visit a person to whom we bought something long time ago and that person reminds our gift with pleasure and gratitude. It is a feeling that cannot be replaced with anything. It gives you the feeling that you offered a part of your own person once you gave that gift.
