Make Adult Gift Giving Easy.
Gift giving to kids is usually pretty easy because when you ask them what they want, they aren’t shy about telling you. Wham bam’ thank you ma’am, (or mom). On the flip side, it’s not so easy to gift other adults. (And we’re not talking about the mail carrier, here.) Like 99.5 % of the time, other adults won’t tell what they want. Which makes no sense, because everyone secretly wants a little something, and if they say they don’t they are probably lying.
Even if you have the kind of relationship where you can bear it all on the table, most likely the adults in your life aren’t telling you what they want. As grown-ups, it can feel slightly awkward or uncomfortable. Hallie and Elana often help the spouses of our clients (and each other’s spouses) when gifting on special occasions.
