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. So, if you don’t have team TWC on your side to help you get or gift this year, we’re sharing the rules we use to make gift giving easy.

Simple rules for giving the best gifts to other adults…

Gifts for Dads and Grads

It’s June, Fathers Day is this weekend and I haven’t gotten my Father’s Day gifts yet. And it’s graduation month too, so basically, I have a list a mile long of gifts I need to get. I think part of my problem is that guys are just not that fun to buy gifts for.  So I wait, hoping something (anything) will pique my interest and seem like the “right” gift for my dad or grad. And now I’m in a rush and need to get Father’s Day gifts ASAP but don’t want to pay for expedited shipping. Does any of this sound familiar? Or are you one of those people that have all their Christmas shopping done in July? If so, I hate you – not really hate, just jealous that you have it so together. I am a true procrastinator when it comes to things in my personal life.

So consider this post for the last minute Charlies, like me, that don’t want it to look like you waited until the last minute to actually get the gift…

In case you didn’t guess, it’s Hallie writing today. Elana is one of those Christmas in July people, love her but, ughhhh.

Father’s Day Gifts that Upgrade His Style

This past week we had 4 different clients asking about a style spruce up for their man. The story’s been kind of the same even though the people, ages, professions and interests are all very different. “My guy needs help when we go out. He’s fine when wearing a suit or going to work. And then he’s got his bum around weekend Cavs/Browns/Indians stuff. But when we go out casually (like not sweats) he is a lost cause.”

Really , that kind of makes sense – men are practical by nature. They NEED things to go to work and they NEED things to be comfortable. But they don’t necessarily feel the need to look put together when they’re taking us out on the town. Elevated casual attire is a no mans land for most people let alone men. You can’t google “going out tops” for men, you know??
