Special Christmas Gifts for Those Special People

How to make everybody happy this Christmas

Source

We all know special people with special passions fueling their lives. After all, the best gifts are those connected to the things in life people are passionate about. Try to find out what makes your girl friend's eyes sparkle or your boyfriend's face lighten up. Then try to figure out what they have and do not have. Chances are high that if you find a gift related to what really makes the life of your special someone extra special, you will score high for giving the ultimate gift they care for.

A little bit of investigative work is required: if you know your boyfriend loves to play the guitar, ask him to show it to you, play a song and in the meanwhile, take advantage and look around. You want to find something he is missing and casually ask something like: you seem to care so much about your guitar, don't you have a case to protect it from the dust? Or if your girlfriend loves to cook ask her opinion on what is the best tool every chef dreams of and ask if she has one to show to you.

Talk casually, and look for what may be missing in their lives. Sometimes they will give you hints as to what they really wished they had and are eager to have some day. Finding out the stuff your friends are passionate about is the ultimate way to make the gift giving process a lot easier than expected.

While everybody has some passion, not everybody will be too eager to talk about them. In these cases, you must try to figure out what type of person you are dealing with and find an appropriate gift. Find out if you are dealing with somebody who is active, loves the outdoors or if it is rather a coach potato who loves to stay warm and cozy.

You will need to use some psychology and use your antennas to find out what type of person you are dealing with. Is that person lazy, active, stylish, messy, practical, artistic, workaholic? Think a list of qualities and this hub will have the done the rest for you....

Aloha

My name is Tia i have a family of 7, things has been so hard since the beginning of last year. I got terminated wrongfully from work and i was on medical leave on May 30, 2011. My husband got laid of his job and now still looking for a job and helping out with my family. I'm disabled. I'm diagnosis with diabetes 2 the beginning of this year. I'm the only one with income of $920.00 from S.S.D.I for a family of 7. We pay rent and pay for our car and insurance which after that it left us with either nothing or just few buck less than $20 the whole month. So, it is very depressing for us because my husband has no luck of finding a job not only that everyday he is out seeking work and it does gets so depressing of waiting for a phone called saying... "We're sorry the position he apply for is filled. But each day i see smiles on his face and he always telling me and my kids things will get better someday. And also he comes home and help me, i can't really do much. I have a chronic pain on my legs bottom of my feet can't barely walk, i have gout, arthritis, diabetes, my hands and feet are so much in pain of standing or walking too long or much. So my husband comes home cheers us up no matter how bad things are. So, i have been browsing around in the net asking where can we go and pick up free toys or gift for our children for christmas and i came into your site. So, here is my story. Things hasn't been too great and good on my family lately, but we try so hard to forget the pain of having little bit to nothing by accepting the fact we got each other for christmas. But i only taking chances of asking around something for my kids only for them this christmas to be happy.. If they are happy we are happy too. Thank you for reading and God bless us all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2013.
